Our insurance does not allow us to help you load your purchases into your vehicle or trailer.
We will provide twine, but you are responsible for loading and fastening your purchases. If you leave and it breaks, it’s your deal!
HOWEVER, be advised: We won't allow you to load your car as the people in the photo to the left!
(Photo was allegedly taken at a rest area down the road from a home depot or some such store.)

ASF Delivery Service - India & Pakistan

Ukraine is the ancestral homeland of ASF owner Bob's family.
The horse-and-wagon made a comeback in parts of Eastern Europe during the economic meltdown that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union.
SINCE WE IN THE U.S. are experiencing our own economic downturn, we are considering a similar return to the horse and wagon for our local deliveries!

PS--We don't really have an international delivery service, and none of us have been to India. Bob's eldest son Stefan has lived in and frequently travels to Ukraine. Check out his photos of Ukraine (as well as his own web and graphic design business website) here.
