We needed a rather small quantity of household goods delivered to New York from a public storage locker in Burnsville, Minnesota. As the items had limited value we were looking for a shipper that could either add it to a load coming east or use it to offset a dead-head run to NY to pick up another delivery. The initial bids were beyond the value of the items and we had all but given up on finding someone to do the job until Jim Fretham contacted us. He was coming to New York to pick up a car, lived 9 miles from the facility in Burnsville and was willing to go out of his way to obtain a key and items from a second location. Couldn't have asked for a better scenario. We not only got our goods delivered at what we could afford to pay, but it also helped Jim out in that he didn't have to absorb the cost of coming to New York. It was a win-win situation for all involved. Initial contact was on 11/22 via email, delivery was Friday 11/26 AM. Tom Dee
