    Default Getting me riled up

    I guess I'm lucky enough to have access to either the right network of "bonifide" carriers or better yet, utilize my own equipment, such as others on this BB. I have had my share of similar experiences as Roger; IMO regarding Ush*t, you get what you pay for; many times the so called trucker isn't even legal to operate or carries adequate cargo insurance, if any. To me, a real trucker wouldn't be looking on Ush*t for a load. Of course, I shouldn't be complaining either, the worse service providers make us look better than I think we are. I gave myself the nickname "Janitor Gee" for many years, as I had to clean up someone else's mess. My clientele realizes that it is cheaper to pay us for excellent service, than to roll the dice "dialing for dollars" trying to save a couple of coins. I will get off my soapbox now. Sorry for the rant. JM

    Looks like if I buy any machine tools out of state I won't be using Uship to haul it.

    Fastenal is great with anything that will fit on a pallet. I even took a prepaid pallet to the wrong Fastenal (did not know there was two in Duluth) and they said "No problem, we will take it and send it, the other store will just get the fee." Great folks to work with and fairly priced.

    I've had really positive experience with Cargolution over the years. Feel free to look them up.
