When my father bought a new television, I was excited to be able to take his older tube-tv with me to school. A semester without a television, or movies for that matter, was long enough. But unfortunately none of our vehicles were nearly large enough. To make matters worse, I went to college 700 miles away. Not many people would let you borrow their SUV or truck for a cross country delivery, not to mention I didn't feel comfortable asking. When I started looking online for options such as freight, U-hual, or others - I found that freighting the item would cost more than the TV was worth. So was I out of luck? Not at all thanks to Searching through the various expensive freighting websites I stumbled onto something different - In a last hope, I posted a shipment on the site, and within an hour I had a great offer to move the television at a very affordable rate. allows shippers to find cargo quickly and enroute to other destinations. This let me "piggyback" along with other freight to get an affordable rate. My television was picked up within 24 hours of my posting, and was waiting for me when I returned to school from Fall Break the next day. On top of this, I knew I was protected via's protection policies, and I could also read all the feedback my shipper had received. 48 hours ago I thought my TV was worthless and stuck at my father's house. Thanks to I'm now watching movies at my apartment without having to purchase a brand new television!
