I own a shoe store in Vergennes, VT and we decided last year to open a repair shop also. We sell high quality shoes and wanted to offer our customers this additional service. As the price of new equipment is prohibitive, we have outfit the shop with used machines that we have bought at auctions, private sale, etc. I have previously either had to rent trucks and pick the stuff up myself or pay big $$$ to deal with big commercial carriers. We recently bought a pneumatic press which was in Akron,OH. I dreaded the prospect of either a 20 hour road trip in a rented van or the hassle of dealing with another big-time carrier. I found uShip while searching the web for shippers in the Akron area. What a great concept! As a small businessman I like the idea of doing business with others like myself. Chris was a pleasure to deal with and I was much more at ease working with someone like myself-just another guy trying to make a living and provide for his family. We now have all the machinery in place and are looking forward to opening December 3rd. Thank You, Dave Austin
