Hello My name is Gene I'm in Texas I bought a drywall texture Sprayer on Ebay. The seller didn't want to ship it and I didn't have time to go to Illinois to pick it up. I tried to get it shipped through various other shippers UPS, Fed EX, Furniture Moving companies etc I could get it shipped but at an outragous ammount for the handling and the shipping. it would have added up to more than the machine was worth. I listed my shipment on Uship and had a few potential shippers but could not connect until Roert Ludeman out of Missouri bid on my shipment. I thought it over and decided it would be to my best interest to go with this shipper. Bob knew the route fro m both ends and made it easy for us both. Bob ran into a severe snow and Ice storm during his trip to pick up my item. But he perserverred and made it to the pickup site on time despite the weather. I also tried to keep him informed as to the weather and construction conditions from my end. He made it to my recieving  site on time and within schedule for both of us. This Guy made my first Ushipment  a great experience and a pleasure to work with. Thanks for a great experience.
