I bought a non functional walking excavator on ebay. (cheap) which is a rather exotic piece of equipment. that can forge rivers and climb mountains. It has legs and wheels. They are common in Europe and you dont often see them in the US. I wanted to move it upstate where I can disassemble it and rebuild it a piece at a time. I was very lucky to find Charles who is a professional equipment mover. He has a tractor trailer. The trailer is a landoll, which in combination with its hydraulic platform can manipulate the position of its rear wheels.Allowing it to get into difficult places,because it shortens the turning radius. it tilts and has a winch. You can even lock the rear wheels and push the tractor. In short it s the ultimate piece of equipment for moving something heavy. I sort of know about them from seeing people use them, to unload equipment. How lucky could I be to find someone on uship with this great equipment let alone the fact that he was friendly and easy to communicate with. this is my second time using uship and I think I am getting hooked. the whole experience was more like asking a friend to help you than having to deal with some inflexible company. I cant thank charles enough and along with that goes my gratitude towards Uship for making such an experience possible. Thanks Quentin
