I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first, having to sign up to find a shipper. What kind of gimmick is this going to be about I thought. Probably going to end up with a lot more junk mail now I figured! Happy to say I was wrong! I didn't think there was any way I could afford to ship a welder halfway accross the country. Within a day I had bids on this shipment and it was a VERY reasonable price! Then I knew how much I could pay for this welder and still be ok. Still, I wasn't sure, it just didn't seem right. So I managed to buy the welder then accepted the bid from Ivy Logistics for the shipping. Well, the ball started rolling right away. The equipment was picked up within 48 hours and delivered in less than a week in great condition with no delays or problems. I'm very relieved to know I was completely wrong to be concerned about anything. I know now that this is a valuable tool and the results speak for themselves. Just because there is great distance between points A and B it doesn't mean it has to cost an arm and a leg to ship it. Thank you very much! Jim A
