We needed to have "Yogi", a 6', 250lb carved bear moved from upstate NY to his new home in MD. We originally planned to drive up and pick him up ourselves, but between work, family  and the new house, we just couldn't find the time. ; The carver recommened U-Ship.  So, we posted the listing, which by the way, was really EZ to do, and quickly received several bids. ; We selected Oasi Transporation Services because they "specialize in carved bears":)  Well, that and the fact that their price was very competitive. We were very flexible with delivery time, ; but in spite of that, Dave, kept us updated frequently and got our bear here in a very timely fashion. We were really excited about getting the bear. The carver had sent us pictures as he evolved from a log to a incredibly adorable, big fat bear.   On delivery day, we received several calls letting us know where "Yogi" was.  The last call informed us that "Yogi" was at the Fort McHenry Tunnel, about 30 mintues from our house.   Yogi arrived in "style" in a really large, very nice trailer.  I was told this was the smallest of their trailers.  Anyway, Dave's brother managed to back the trailer into our drive way without hitting our neighbors car (oh, darn!).  Yogi was well wrapped and secured.  He's a "big heavy bear", not EZ to move around.  Dave's brother, who handled the delivery,  unloaded him and helped us put him in the back of our SUV for the trip to his final destination, our cabin in the woods - get away. ; Yogi is home now and we want to thank ;Dave and his Brother, Oasis Transporation Services and U-Ship for such a stress-free, pleasant experience.  Thanks again.
