As a collector of vintage military vehicles, I always need all kinds of things.....spare parts, donor vehicles, project vehicles, accessories, the list goes on & on. Unfortunately, things like engines, axles, wheels & tires are heavy, cumbersome & general pain in the ass to arrange shipping for. Let alone get a good deal. Recently, I had the good fortune to win some wheels & tires for a 1944 Dodge WC-52 cargo truck I am working on. I located the truck on EBay in California & found an outstanding shipper (Ray Revis) to bring this thing across North America for me in Feb of this year. Fortunately, it had sat out in the high desert for 60-odd years & was in primo shape for such an old truck. Unfortunately, it has two VERY flat front tires. So when I won the wheels & tires on another EBay auction, I needed someone to bring them to me from Virginia. Once again, UShip to the rescue !!!! Not only did I get a great rate & ANOTHER outstanding shipper (DRP Transport), but we determined we are virtual neighbors....I live in Ft Lauderdale, Florida & these folks are just south in the city of Hollywood. Needless to say, the next time I need items like this picked up, Henri & Joanne are #1 on my call list. I am very thankful to UShip for the good fortune & success I have enjoyed meeting these good people & getting projects done that once were not economically feasible.
