I bought a metal working shaper in San Antonio TX. The seller did not list the local pickup only for the item. I won the bid and asked him to ship it to South Central PA. The seller choked!!!! I can't do that. OK, Hmmm so I got onlone and found the Uship site. It did require a few phone calls but all worked out just fine.
The cost for packaging, pickup and shipping was actually more than the item but I figured it was worth it. Thanks ECR
