I bought this machine about a year and a half ago from a friend in Va. and was making quarterly payments.We had an agreement that while I was paying it off, he could continue to use it for personal use and small local jobs to pay for the upkeep. He put over 100 hrs on it and no upkeep at all. When I paid it off in August, it was out of fuel,low on oil and wouldn't start.I decided then I had to bring it up to N.J. or my investment/ and friendship would be finished. My boss told me about Uship so I listed it. I only had about 4 or 5 bids which surprised me. The cheaper bids were all brokers but I only wanted to deal direct with a shipper because this is my own machine. I selected Bilco transport and accepted his bid because he is also an owner operator. In talking to Bill, He mentioned that he had moved a machine out of N.J. to West Va. not too long ago. As it turned out, that machine belonged to my boss, the same one who suggested Uship and unknown to me had also accepted Bilco's bid. Small world!I went down to Va. last week and got the machine ready to ship and let Bilco know that he could schedule the move. The whole process took 10 days start to finish.Bilco did a great job, for a fair price and not only did he save me money, but helped save a machine and a friendship. I wouldn't hesitate to use Uship again
