Shipping costs are becoming a major deterrent to restoring vintage automobiles. Considering the price paid for the vehicle, plus the vast sums needed to restore them, the shipment must be reasonable. This vehicle was not in running condition, so extra care had to be taken to get it loaded and unloaded. My deal with the seller depended on my ability to arrange transport for under $500. Otherwise it would have not been worth buying it. uShip is a perfect site for such a situation, as it allowed me to find the right shipper within a workable timeframe. I received about 10 bids within a few days, and LarryD came through with the best price and had the best feedback to boot.
