I had recently acquired my dream vehicle, a stout 1953 Dodge M43 military ambulance that supposedly served in the Korean War. After 54 years however, the brakes had let go and I could not drive it from it's place of purchase to its new home, about 140 miles away. A quick search online for automobile shipping soon revealed that most shippers were going to charge me way too much and had little experience with such an unusual and heavy vehicle (7200lbs). I came across uShip and decided I had little to lose. Set-up was simple and straighforward. Bill Dickey was the first to reply, had the lowest price and the necessary equipment to safely transport the ambulance. Despite a wrong turn Bill arrived just as the rain stopped and the sun came out. He was extremely personable and easily earned his homemade apple crisp and coffee for his trip home. If I ever have to move this beast of a vehicle again, or anything else as large, I'll definitely use uShip again. Thanks!
