My generator was stolen and I purchased a replacement. Problem was, it was in MN and I am in Ohio. I called UPS, they quoted me about 300.00, the next day I called to book the shipment, then they said it was going to cost over 800! I also called R&L and they were kinda wishy washy about the pricing too. So, I stumbled onto Uship on the internet. I downloaded the picture of my item, fed in the make model and so on, the trucker knew exactly what he was picking up.... He gave me one price and the next thing I knew, I woke up on the day it was supposed to be here and he called me from his cell phone and said he was on the road! He indicated he was 20 minutes away and he arrived with my generator and other misc. items exactly like he said. The company was powerdraft and he was a very nice person and was willing to do what it took to load, unload etc. I did need his support to load my item but I was able to handle the unloading at my shop. I definately would use this trucking company again, he said he goes everywhere! and or he has other drivers and truck. If you have items that need moved, this company turn out to be very trustworthy and earned my business for all needs in the future, thus I certaily would recommend him! When my item arrived, he submitted an invoice for exactly what we had agreed upon. Art 513/423-8181
