A+ + + + + Shipper! This is my 1st experience with uShip…and I could not have been happier with my shipper, Thomas (“T.J.”)! We had purchased a boat on the east coast (sight unseen). My shipment arrived with out a scratch; and despite several emergencies (his partner got food poisoning on the road—TJ got him to the hospital and waited until his friend’s family could arrive from Florida to take care of him) and he STILL made the pickup of the boat ON TIME (actually EARLY!). On the trip to California, my trailer had a flat tire and needed to have the bearings repacked..and TJ took care of all the repairs (at no charge) and STILL delivered my boat EARLY. This is a hardworking, responsible young man. Everyone who met him (even my mother!) was very impressed with him. (My Mother wants TJ to move her to Alabama when she sells her house). If you are fortunate enough to have TJ bid on your shipment, I encourage you to work with him. Although his rates might be higher than the lowest bids you get; if you are FLEXIBLE with your delivery times, TJ with work with you to combine loads (which can lower your costs). TJ managed to find a boat shipment in Florida, which was headed to the SAME tiny village in New Hampshire where I bought my boat. That delivery was LITERALLY 3 miles from the seller’s house; so was able to save me a lot of money. So TJ can make it happen if you are a little flexible. All in all, a great experience. I look forward to using TJ again next time I ship anything!
