We had a buyer for our engine clear across the country. It was an old engine shortblock. I strapped it to a pallet, wrapped it up nicely, and put the shipment up for bids. We got 3 bids the first day, LDM International was the lowest. Even though they were fairly new to U-Ship, with only a handful of shipments, we used them. Excellent transaction from start to finish. The engine was picked up on schedule on Tuesday, and delivered two days later to the buyer in Arizona. Pretty easy on our end, they showed up with a lift gate truck, and loaded the heavy pallet in minutes. The buyer reports the engine made it safe and sound with no damage. We also got a great rate on the shipping compared to using our Commercial UPS account. We don't ship a lot of heavy items, but will definetely use U-Ship again if and when we do.....Cliff
