I purchased a HD Low Rider on Ebay that was located North of Reno NV. and I am in Tucson AZ. some 15 hours drive time away. Because I have shipped 7 vehicles in the past I quoted some of the carriers I had used before, but most simply had a huge fee or an outragous deliver time, like weeks out before they could deliver. Being discouraged, and wondering if I'd even see this bike before Christmas I posted on Uship for delivery options and several bids came in but I saw Denny's and it stood out as his delivery time was so quick, and not what I had been used to in the past. I thought, what the heck, let's put him to the test and see if he could really do what he says he can. He said he could deliver within five days of the order so I accepted his bid on my bike. I called an spoke with him prior to the pick-up date and was for sure he couldn't do as it was on a holiday weekend. Denny calls me on Thanksgiving evening confirming the location he needs to pick up my bike, and I was in awe, and called the seller to let him know that hey, this bike is getting picked up either tonight or tomorrow morning, my driver is already there waiting. Low and behold Friday morning the bike got loaded and it was on it's way to me along with some other pick-ups along the way down here. Denny calls me and tells me with his difficult schedule of other pick-ups and drop offs it's gonna be Monday afternoon before he's in front of my house. You gotta be kidding Denny as I didn't expect to see the bike no sooner than the end of the week with the schedule you were trying to keep. Hey, if you haven't ever shipped a bike or any other vehicle or goods of this type, you may think so what's the big deal. Go with another shipper and wait three weeks or more to recieve what you paid a premium to ship and you'll see what a difference Denny can make in recieving your goods. Hey, if you are in doubt you can email me at [email protected]oplepc.com or call me at 520-690-5483 I'll set you straight on Denny.
