Overall a pleasant experience. Bought Kubota BX1500 in one state and needed it shipped to me in another. Found the uShip site fairly easy to use and navigate. However, I did find that I had to read the bids very closely and then ask questions. Delivery was specified in the ad as to my residential driveway. Many of the bids were from brokers that only used semis with the full blown high flat bed. Either buried in the terms and conditions or determined through questions was the need for the shipper to have available a loading dock or crane to get the item off the trailer bed. No individual is going to want to try and coordinate both the delivery and someone else to unload the item, nor will they want to go to that expense. I will definitely use uShip again if the need arises. My advise is to follow thier directions and read everything closely and ask questions if there is any doubt and you will not have any unpleasant surprises.
