I bid on a dune buggy on eBay last week. My max bid was a third of what the buggy was worth, so I was extremely surprised when I WON it! The buggy was located in Ohio and I am in Alabama - I honestly hadn't really thought about how I would get it down here because, as I mentioned, I never expected to WIN it. Upon notification I started researching U-Haul trailers and looking up tow ratings on my compact pickup and I was honestly a little frustrated. A friend told me about uShip, so I posted an ad, not knowing what to expect. I posted at 9:00pm on Tuesday, and by 8:00am Wednesday had several offers. I chose Chris and his wife as they had positive feedback, and surprisingly told me that they could have the buggy to me on Saturday... in three days. I called the seller and told him that I would have Chris pick it up on Friday, and even HE (a dealer of buggy's) had never heard of such PROMPT service. Saturday morning rolls around, and coming up my driveway was my brand new buggy. Chris and his wife were courteous and gave me some insight into the pickup and had even secured the title, tools and Owner's Manual for me. Thanks Chris! You and your wife really pulled me out of a jam!
