I found and purchased a 1937 Caterpillar #10 Auto Patrol Motor Grader that as luck would have it was only five serial numbers from one I had that was beyond repair. The unit was in Boise ID and I am all the way in Illinois. I have a trucking company however we mainly run local loads and was not exited at the prospect of 4 days travel and associated expense. I posted the load on UShip and was suprised that in a very short time there were several bids to choose from in my target cost range.(saving me time and money) I selected Freight Concepts and was very happy with all the aspects of the service from communication, schedueling, GREAT driver who took good care of a large (16,000 lbs) Old (71 years) Cat. Special thanks to all involved and I look forward to the restoration of the old Cat and the next time I need to move Iron I will use UShip again.
