First of all I am pleased that a marketplace like this exist to provide a small hauler a chance to compete with the big shippers. I needed to ship two full 55 gallon barrels of liquid weighing 510 lbs. each from Spring Texas to Twin Bridges Montana. I checked with all the standard big dogs and got outrageous quotes that were all above a thousand dollars. I couldn't begin to afford that so I decided to list my shipment request on Uship and see what happens. I got quite a few shippers to give me a quote that fell well below the thousand dollar quotes from the big boys. One nice fella out of Idaho, gave me a really good quote that I accepted. Delivery was a done deal and without worry. The Shipper had problems but in spite of his problems he worked around them and made sure he completed his commitment to me. That was Great in my book.
