I happened up on your site when I was researching option on how to move my husband's grandfather's tractor from Ohio to North Carolina. We had a vague idea of doing it ourselves, but when I found UShip, we decided to list it and see what kind of binds we would get. Well, we got bids that made it clear to us that doing it ourselves was a waste of our time, we could hire a professional for not much more than it would cost to rent a trailer and fuel! Yesterday, our shipper (yes, we now feel like we have a shipper!) Chris, arrived with Grandpa's tractor, and the implements, directly from the family farm in Ohio. Last night I got to watch my husband, teach our son to drive the old Massey-Ferguson 135, driven by 4 generations of his family in two different states! Grandpa was somewhere up there looking down on the whole thing, happy to know we'll take care of things. Thanks for helping us pull it all together!
