While down in Texas on a recent business trip I happened across an old Farmall Cub Tractor that would be the perfect winter project. I made a comment to the owner, whom I had just met, " I sure would love to have that tractor, it's just like the one my Grandpa had when I was a kid". He quickly replied, "it's yours for $500". So I bought it right on the spot. I flew home and began to think about the 1400 mile round trip to go and get this tractor. Not being really excited about a 24 hour turn-around trip to texas I googled "equipment shipping" and found u-ship. Thinking it too good to be true to list my add for free, I went ahead and filled in the requested data and even added a picture of the tractor. This really took about 5 minutes. That night I had to wrap my cell phone in a rag because it kept buzzing all night! To make a long story short, the bid I accepted was from a guy who was going to be in the pick-up area of my tractor that very weekend and passing by my home on his way back. His bid was just slightly more than the price of gas for me to go get the tractor myself. I accepted the bid and met Ray, the guy who brought my Farmall Cub Tractor home. What a truely cool experience for this to happen just as it did! An absolutely stress free delivery!
