We lent our old red tractor, his name was "Ol' One Red Eye", it has only one working headlight, to a friend who was in a bind for a tractor. To make a long story short the relationship with the friend went bad. I wanted the tractor back and started to research how we might be able to bring "Ol' One Red Eye" home. The traditional shippers wanted too much money so I tried Uship. Immediately we began to get bids, but there was a hitch. The tractor had an implement and tools that needed to be removed and a batterty that had to be disconnected. The worst part was that it was in Petersburg, TN. Then we found our shipper, he was amenable to accomodating our unusual request, the price was just right and it helped the shipper out as he was headed to pick up a boat only 1 hour from us. He said that this would pay for his gas on the way up, a real win win for both parties.
