I was looking around on ebay one day and saw an unbelieveable deal on an extremely rare 1932 Ford Sport Coupe. I did some quick research and reasured myself that the car was worth well more than the Buy it Now. I contacted the seller and before we hung up we came to a price agreement and sealed the deal. Once I hit the BIN and paid the deposit I realized the car was over 2800 miles from where it needed to be. This was about to cut into the "deal" I had been so excited over finding. The car needed to be shipped enclosed due to extra parts and exposed steel. I called a few brokers I had dealt with in the past, their prices nearly made my stomach turn. I signed up for a USHIP account years ago and never really used it. I decided it wouldn't cost anything to try it out. I posted the shipment details and within a hour I had a very respectable offer to ship it enclosed for the price of my broker gave me for an open trailer. Overall it was a great experience and I will be using it for all my shipments from now on. I assume my broker will have to pick up some hours at the Quickie Mart...
