Any good/bad experiences with Forward Air?

I'm looking at moving a medium quantity of DEC gear from a friend's
house in Denver to Columbus, and he suggested Forward Air. I checked
their web site and just learned that their National Hub is 8 miles
from my Farm (that a couple of you have seen). As such, it sounds
like a good plan, and I remember that I've heard chatter about Forward
Air, but I'm a bit fuzzy about the nature of the chatter and if it was
mostly good, mixed, mostly bad, or what. I'm planning on shipping
things like an LA180, most or all of an -8/a enclosure and boards, and
perhaps a DECmate I or VT100 (I'll get to see the stuff this
Sunday)... so we are looking at probably a single pallet between 100
and 200 lbs.
I'd rather this not turn into a flame-fest or a "why don't you try
*this* method" discussion. I specifically want to hear about any
experiences or recommendations for or against Forward Air. I know my
other options; this one is new to me.
If you feel your comments are not quite on-topic, please, by all
means, feel free to send to me off-list. Other mini-collectors might
be interested in pertinent comments, though.
