I shipped my brand new ‘07 Kawasaki ZX10R from PA to KS,I found the best price on the east coast but had to get it to my house.Not adept on national shipping,I listed it on USHIP hoping for the best.I received many offers,mostly from the same companies trying to outbid each other.Smiling like I Cheshire cat,I decided to accept a bid when my computer mysteriously shut itself down.Frantically with the eagerness of a teenager puckering up for his first kiss from a girl I reestablished connectivity.Swiftly logging onto USHIP,this awesome,not the lowest but descriptively the best offered bid had expired three minutes prior to me logging back on.Immediately I displayed sophomoric anger;after about two hours of feeling sorry for myself,I thought, what do I do now?Google the shipper & call them direct.Did I tell you that I am doing this from a wireless connection using a laptop in the middle of downtown Bagdad,Iraq.Whoa...What was I thinking,I'm in Baghdad I can't just pick up a phone and coordinate shipping arrangements.So,three days later once I returned to the military base I sent a question to the shipper & they sent me a copy of their contract.I completed the paperwork but decided to formally accept their bid and digitally send the document the next morning.Who says procrastination yields undesirable results;Ron Anderson submitted a bid later that night,lower than the one I was going to accept.Answering all my questions within hours of me pressing the send button;I accepted Ron's bid.He sent me his information & I forwarded it to my dealership.He delivered my bike on time as planned without any damage to my prized possession.Surpassing expectations,he called me upon pickup even emailed his itinerary all to provide me peace of mind as I waited thousands of miles away.It’s not always the“popular”large company that provides the best service but the small guy who we often overlook,remember,the large companies once started small…Now,what can“RON”deliver for you? USHIP ROCKS
