    @Bullet and I were discussing the benefits of a dedicated 'Shipping / Moving Gear" section (or whatever it would be called) in the forums where members have a chance to post requests, actually meet up, tell a story & do good deeds all at once (see here):

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

  2. I'm for it.
    I know there are a couple of threads offering this service, however,
    trying to remember the thread titles to do a search is a PITA.

  5. I'd suggest the 'Canadian Corner', or a sub-section of the 'for sale/trade/wanted' forum.
    Call it 'Transport Services/Requests'?

    @GCAdmin1 just to get your attention.

    Good idea! Shipping costs can be brutal.

    Transport Services/Requests is a good name. I am still partial to my Gear Transporter Services (GTS) because it’s a play on “transporter” and GAS, as well as because the section should also probably be *offers* and *requests* to transport.

    It would also be great to have subject tags similar to For Sale section’s FS, FT, WTB, and FS/FT, so say OFFERED and REQUESTED tags.

    But as a concept, this obviously has my vote.
