I belong to a facebook group where people can give away or sell their 'special' things. I just happened to be on when a mom listed that she was giving away a Special Tomato mobile chair in Liam's size! She only asked for shipping. I knew shipping would be high because it's heavy and an odd sized thing to ship. But, I knew that a few hundred dollars to ship a $2000 chair was still a bargain!
The mom got a quote from UPS charging about $275. Still, a bargain, but I wanted to see if I could get it shipped cheaper through uShip. I have used them before and never had any problems.
Imagine my shock when I got a quote from some guy saying he would deliver the chair personally to our door for $24.99! I admit I was stunned and confused at the low price because the next cheapest price I'd been quoted was $230. But Keith emailed me immediately upon placing the offer and explained the low bid. He said he was friends with a family who has a special needs kid and knew that costs were outrageous for the equipment that these kids need and he wanted to do us a favor because we were right along the path he was taking anyway.
