I had ordered a new fibreglass truck cap specifically to fit my vehicle but it could not be delivered in time for my snowbird trip from Ontario to Florida, so I cancelled the order. I was lucky to find a truck cap, almost new, same color, that was an exact fit for my truck on eBay, when I got to Florida. However, the seller would not be responsible for shipping it from New Jersey to Florida. I went on line to UShip, found a shipper, made a match, and received the truck cap a week later. This was in spite of a huge snowstorm in NJ where the seller lived! The seller helped the shipping company load this heavy item and the shipping driver helped us unload it upon arrival. We ended up with a saving of 60% over the cost of the new cap I had ordered at home.
