I purchased a smart car from out of state and the dealership quoted me $1,500 to have it shipped, even though it only needed to be transported from Oregon to Nevada. I decided to request bids using the uShip site and was shocked when several bids came in within less than 24 hours, and all of them were lower than the shipping quote I had received from the dealership. I went with Rick (trknwtsn), not only because he had the lowest bid ($659), but because he had a 100% positive feedback rating, with over 70 successful transactions. I have never had a vehicle shipped before, and the way uShip is set up to show each shipper's feedback, made it possible for me to proceed with confidence, instead of apprehension. My little smart car arrived right on time, and Rick spent a long time explaining to me exactly how to get the car started, how to shift it, and how to turn off the ignition. Smart cars have a completely different ignition and shifting system than any other car I've driven, so I really appreciate the extra time Rick spent to explain everything. He didn't just "dump off" the vehicle and go on his way! I would also like to mention the wonderful communication I had with Charlotte who helped coordinate the shipment between the dealership, Rick and me. You would have to look a long time to find two people who are so friendly, caring and competent, and I would have never found them without using the uShip site. I don't know whether I'll ever have the need to ship another vehicle, but if I do, I would not hesitate for a moment to use uShip again, and hope that Rick bids on my shipment! This site is absolutely the BEST way to find a shipper, and I will recommend it to everyone I know who has anything that needs to be transported. Thanks, Rick, Charlotte & uShip! --Debbie
