I was scared and doubtful using the internet to find someone - a total stranger - to drive my car from Charlotte NC to Manhattan NY. As several bids came in, I realized that I had even more options that I had not even considered. The prices were so much more reasonable than with the commercial agents I had talked to already. Haulers get complicated with you on the phone and will not guarantee any delivery dates for NYC. When I decided on "dkompto" to drive my car for me, I was a bit anxious. My husband thought I was nuts.... using the internet, hiring a stranger and handing him the keys to a car, paying him ....... everything handled on a computer. dkompto and I exchanged emails through UShip, and then later when we talked on the phone, I knew that I had made a good choice. When I met him the next week, all my worries vanished. He is a true gentleman and professional, always courteous and polite. He was exactly on time and delivery worked out exactly as he planned. He had no trouble driving the car "into THE City" as it is so often described. My experience was great with UShip and also with dkompto. It was well worth the UShip fee to find this honest service provider for me. I intend to use both again. As my husband and I are business owners ourselves, we will both now recommend this internet service to other businesses. My husband no longer calls me nuts, the little red Audi is running around all over Manhattan today. Thanks to dkompto and UShip.
