I bought a tractor on E-Bay. Nice tractor for a good price. Only problem was that it was in Michigan and I am in Mississippi. That's more than 1,000 miles! I looked into picking it up myself, but that would take at least three days of non-stop driving and over $1,000 in expenses. I looked for a shipper and found that most carriers would not take a one way, small load from an individual or it was hard to register my load. Uship was easy to register and I got three responses within one day. One of the offers was from a man who was comming my way to pick up some septic tanks. He was going to make a dry run, so he gave me a real good price. The father of the man who sold me the tractor was in the hospital. My shipper worked with the seller to arrange the pick up and had the tractor delivered 4 days later. He even gave me some short lessons about the tractor to get me started. It couldn't have worked out better.
