A gentleman in Florida answered my Craigslist ad for a stepper/climber. I live in Pennsylvania. For UPS or DHL, I would have had to dis-assemble it, box it, etc.., I think. I stumbled across uShip while web-searching shippers. I shop ebay and have a PayPal account, so I was sure I could trust uShip. I received a dozen bids within a couple of hours. My chosen shipper sent 2 (or 3) offers, each under-bidding the others. And I liked the picture of his truck. He was efficient, friendly, timely, and in continuous contact with myself and the Florida recipient.
We were both very satisfied.
