I recently listed a non-running backhoe to be shipped from sunny Florida to the frozen north in central Maine. I was in the process of purchasing the item and wanted to get some type of an idea as to what the shipping costs would be. I received bids within 24 hours of listing the item. After a week of looking into the bidders and asking them questions I settled on a middle of the road bidder, not the lowest and not the highest. Buddahead was easy to communicate with and get through some of the details which I was not familiar with. He had no problem getting the hoe loaded at pickup. He arrived within 30 minutes of his ETA with the backhoe properly secured on his new trailer. It was an exciting moment to see it appear after being shipped more than 1600 miles. Danny was very helpful in helping unload the unit also and also very patient with us too. Uship made this whole transaction very easy to use with no feeling like I was pushed in one direction or another. I have already recommended Uship and my shipper to several people.  Thanks Buddahead and Uship !!!
