When I bought "Casper" my 1968 Ultravan I had no idea that to find a shipper would be so very difficult. I looked in the yellow pages and called around to RV dealerships trying to find someone who could bring him home to me from Ohio to Kentucky. The Ultravan is a motorhome with a unique construction (like an airplane) having no frame or chassis so to tow it would damage it. I finally started searching on line and found USHIP.com. What a relief when I had a few bids! Del, my shipper, from autocarrides, was great and knew and understood my special needs. This Ultravan Motorhome is rather wide with the wheels being 66" apart which is another reason I couldn't find local service I suppose. Del sounded and acted like an old friend on the phone and treated me so well. My husband has just had surgery and is down and I really no nothing about the mechanics of the UV so really had to rely on Del. He came through for me and completely eased all my fears and went the extra mile for me. With everything going on here and me having to take up all the slack on the farm for my hubby you can't imagine what a relief this was for me! Del even offers a discount for seniors and military. As an older than Methusalah disabled vet myself that help was also fantastic and he saved me alot of money! The driver was great and called me often and also told me all he could about the Ultravan when he picked it up. It's a unique vehicle and he was surprised by it himself but knew just what to do to make it a safe trip. The UV came with an extra engine which he unloaded here too. He was able to ever so slowly winch the UV off the trailer and set it in the exact spot I had requested. I'm so glad I found UShip and Del at autocarrides!
