I recently purchased an antique tractor from a seller in Ohio. My trailer was too narrow to transport the tractor safely so I found the UShip website and used their service to find qualified shippers and request bids. I had never used UShip before but their website was very easy to use and navigate. (Uship has done their homework!) I was surprised how many bids I received and how quickly the bids came in after I posted my request. After exchanging a couple of messages with the shipper thru the UShip website I accepted the bid from a shipper that was located fairly close to my delivery destination. The shipper called me promtly after I accepted his bid and we worked out the few remaining details in a matter of minutes. I was hoping to hit a window of decent weather so the tractor would not get covered with salt and road grime during transit. The first two days after Thanksgiving were supposed to be clear and cold but sunny. The shipper was very in tune with my concerns and with just a couple days notice, he was able to get the transport set up for the day after Thanksgiving. I was a bit nervous about the tractor being damaged in transit or during loading but my concerns were unfounded. The weather cooperated as forecast and the shipper kept both me and the seller in the line of communication during the whole process. The driver was great to deal with, understood how to load and secure the tractor safely and delivered it when he promised and without a scratch. Overall this was a very smooth and efficient transaction. UShip makes it easy to locate and qualify good shippers and it saved me quite a bit of time and money versus going thru a conventional LTL freight company. If conducting all of my business went this smoothly I'd have a lot less gray hair! Thanks UShip and Thanks Rig-N-Truck!
