My father's Ferguson TO-30 tractor and various implements were in Spokane, WA. I was in Maryland. My father was in Tennessee. I had planned to take a week of leave from work, fly to Spokane, rent transportation equipment and drive the shipment myself. Thank God I saw an advertisement for offering free posting of my shipment. I posted. Roger Swift of Swift Transportation offered the winning bid. Roger and his organization gave me a lesson on what to expect from a professional transportation outfit. The bar is set very high. It is not an easy thing to ship an odd load over 2000 miles in bad weather. Roger took care of coordinating the load out with a third party, made sure I was kept informed of progress and handled challenges presented by ice storms and equpment issues. Even with the weather and equipment issues the shipment went smooth. I felt confident throughout because Roger kept me informed by email and phone. On top of that, Roger proved to be a courteous and entirely professional man. The shipment was completed within my time requirements and within my planned budget. I thank God for the successful shipment and for professionals like Roger and his organization. I am please to recommend and Swift Transportation to any and all who would ask my opinion. Thank you.
