I am from Canada and I bought a sled from a guy in Wisconsin. I put the shipment up on uShip and Paula and Jay had excellent ratings and a price that made it worth it for me. It would have taken me two days and $500 in fuel to go to Wisconsin and back to Saskatchewan. They did it for much less. There were many complications from my side that were delaying the booking. I had to first get a hold of the sled owner and arrange to get payment to him and a time that P & J could pick the machine up. P & J were patient through this process which can be difficult when you are trying to fill a truck for a run. And I understand this completely as there is no other way they could get the machine to me for what they did unless freight was being split amongst a bunch of shipments. Unfortunately once everything came together on my side of things, the weather would not co-operate and there were some understandable delays. I think that the first big delay was a Tues pickup that had to be put off from a storm. It took a couple of days to reach them at this point that caused a little stress because the guy that I was buying it from was leaving Wisconsin for the winter ( and then how would the machine get picked up ). Jay got a hold of me just in time though and even though he had re-scheduled my pick-up for the way back from Chicago, he flipped his schedule and went and got my sled first. I really appreciated that. ***** My honest opinion is that cell coverage can be blamed for a lot of the communication issues that I experienced and any other issues were weather related. Hard to find fault with that. Once we managed to arrange a meeting time they were in constant contact. I had to drive from Regina SK to Kenmare to pick it up. They were in Kenmare when I was at the border so they kept driving up the road and met me closer to the border. Down to the minute and sled delivered in good condition. I would definately use again and recommend to a friend.
