This was my first time using the uShip service. I recently purchased a pair of quarter panels and outer wheelhouses for my 1966 Chevy Belair from a gentleman in the Buffalo, NY area. The size of the cargo was just over 8 feet long and about 3 feet high and 12 inches deep - therefore not able to be shipped by conventional UPS, FedEx, Greyhound or other similar means. Having seen what these parts typically ship for from the factory, I took a shot on using uShip to find a vendor that could meet my needs, for the price I wanted and in a reasonable timeframe. After several bids (some of which were actually for more than what I paid for the parts), Delco Couriers stepped up, provided me with the price I wanted and got the job done in the face of some trying weather. Under conditions that included ice and snow, as well as rain, freezing rain, and sleet, John and Vince successfully picked up my box, secured it in their cargo van, and dropped it off safely on my back patio in my suburban Philadelphia home. The uShip experience and service,has prompted my to already tell approximately 25 persons in both my car club and my associates from all over the country who buy/sell antique automobiles and parts. Kudos to a great service and organization offered by uShip to close the loop between buyers and sellers who need merchandise transported door-to-door in a safe, reliable, timely and economic way with a personal touch thrown in for good measure. It was well worth my time and effort. I'll be back! Luke
