Needed a telehandler shipped cross border. Abacus handled the freight and we contacted a broker (that Nick at Abacus gave us for a contact). There were a few minor hiccups (some on our end and a truck having mechanical problems on Nick's end) but the unit arrived with no issues. We did not have anyone at the pickup site to load the unit so Nick's driver took the bull by the horns and loaded it himself. Not very many companies will go the extra mile to help you out. Abacus does care and I will definitely hire them again. A++++ for all their help and for their customer care. Number 1 in my books. Marty Betke, Big Lake, MN
