Self-aggrandizing a bit in just dropping a link to ma blog. Check it out. The unloading part was the most interesting: http://www.righthanddrive.ca/blog/2014/10/container-shipping-to-winnipeg-part-5/ It was a pretty crazy process... but I don't know of any other individual (non-business) that's imported a container inland. So, it seemed like a really good idea. http://www.righthanddrive.ca/blog/2014/09/container-shipping-to-winnipeg-part-1/ http://www.righthanddrive.ca/blog/2014/10/container-shipping-to-winnipeg-part-2/ http://www.righthanddrive.ca/blog/2014/10/container-shipping-to-winnipeg-part-3/ http://www.righthanddrive.ca/blog/2014/10/container-shipping-to-winnipeg-part-4/ http://www.righthanddrive.ca/blog/2014/10/container-shipping-to-winnipeg-part-5/ There's one more scheduled to go up next week (I wrote them all at once, and schedule them so my blog doesn't look dormant) - basically discussing the stuff I'm saying here, with more gratuitous images. Would I do it again? Probably. I have a busy life now (read: offspring) and can't afford the 3 day 'fetch a car from the coast' trip. I don't like the idea of using Livingston, and haven't heard great reviews. Was it awesome? yes. Should you do it? Probably not. It was a lot of work, but you can do it off-hours. I had to hold a lot of hands, and middleman a lot of conversations. Not for the faint of heart.
