Before you choose a service provider, the smart thing to do is to look at feedback to help decide if that’s the person or company you want to haul for you. Primarily, you look at cancellations, neutrals, negatives and no. of feedback to the matched shipments ratio. I did that exact thing, and besides having 0 neg or neu, found “above and beyond” to be a common phrase used by shippers who used rg3685. I decided Roman to be low risk for cancellation and would get the job done. Let me tell you, I’m very critical when it comes to any service I receive and am not easily impressed. But when in comes to Romin’Romin’Roman (rg3685), above and beyond does not do him justice. First off, the ex-owner of my forklift gave wrong width dimensions. It was way narrower than the 4 feet he estimated so it wouldn’t go on standard loading ramps. Most provides would have cancelled the shipment, but not Roman. He was able to rig a ramp for the left side wheels and use his trailer’s ramp for the right side wheels – we did the same when he dropped off. To make a long story short, what would have taken 15 min, max, loading and unloading time, took two+ hours. As promised, he got ‘er done! I was extremely impressed with his versatility and his ingenuity when it came to tackling and resolving dilemmas and was exceedingly satisfied that my property was transported safely. Top add acing on the cake, he bid way less than what others where quoting/bidding. You cannot go wrong, or do better than, Roman at rg3685.
