I bought a huge chassis dyno on Ebay, and thought shipping would be insane for 1100 miles and 12000lbs. Well, within a day or so I had several offers bid down to ship it on uShip for <1200, which isn't bad at all. With loading costs, it arrived in one shipment for about 1500.
Rapidfiretx did a great job arranging for loading this monster machine and transporting it safely, and even quickly recovered from a transmission failure en route.
All this was done with just a few messages on uShip and a call to touch base, and I paid with paypal. Oh yeah, it shipped from Texas to Iowa, and I'm in China! How's that for convenience?
