I purchased a timber frame from someone who stated a day and time that the frame would be ready to load and an estimated weight for shipping. He vastly under-estimated the time it would take him for dismantling and the actual weight was 2.75 times as much as he estimated. I had used UShip to find Osborne, which worked really well. Once I was on site with the timber frame and found out the dismantling was taking much longer than expected, Osborne was able to adjust the pick up time and later brought in more resources to carry the significantly larger load. Their flexibility and devotion to customer satisfaction were absolutely key in achieving a successful delivery of the timbers from my 1870's timber frame. In addition, while the timbers looked like junk, Osborne treated all of it with respect and were able to deliver all of them with no damage whatsoever. They are terrific!
