Bought a hood on Ebay from a gentleman in California named Dan. My plan was to have it shipped via Greyhound. Dan took it to the station, but the folks at Greyhound said that it was about 2" too long for them to ship. Dan dragged it back home and I checked with FedEx, UPS and DHL, none of them would ship it. So, I began checking with trucking companies. They would move it, but wanted more tham I had paid for the hood! Finally, a friend suggested that I try Uship. I posted on the board that I needed some shipping help and Mike kindly responded. He was bringing a car out from California and could bring my hood along. The cost was about what Greyhound would have charged, but it was delivered door to door LITERALLY with the kind of care and service that you just dont see much these days. Mike saved me quite a bit of money and perhaps more importantly a ton of frustration.
