Is it a pain? I've had people buy peds from me that have been shipped, and it was painless! The shipper notified me an ETA, showed up, I pointed to the peds, they loaded them and left... "easy peasy"!
If the buyer lines everything up and pays up front, what difference does it make to the seller who shows up at the door to take them away? Especially in the age of technology, where a buyer can send money digitally at a moments notice.
Don't let distance discourage you from having a shipper transport for you. It benefits everyone who loves peds to have others willing to spread that love... just like the love I'm spreading to you all! ❤ stay safe, wear eye protection 😉
