I had to get a small locomotive from about 300 miles away, quickly. I put the listing on uShip, and within 24 hours I had three bids. They ranged from open trailers to enclosed trucks. This allowed me to choose the price and service. I found a shipper that could get it quickly, in a covered trailer, and that would take credit cards. He was on time, and delivered it perfectly. Chuga chuga choo choo!
