Having heard many horror stories, on the high end audio and video sites, about the "usual suspects" in the Currier providing field, I reckoned to be worthwhile to throw in an extra $150 and get a potential safer pick up, shipping and delivery or my fragile load (class 300!). I've set my target price at a reasonable level and made a thorough, full description of the merchandise and of my expectations from the Shipper. Got three bids and settled with one which just happened to live nearby where we live, so it made things easier.
Everything went really smooth, even that more time consuming then anticipated, but I guess that there is no way around investing some time in smart communication in order to get things right. Part of the game.
This was my first time experience with uShip, but I think that I've already learn properly the procedures (on the way, I've been slightly confused about the commissions to pay - to them and to the Shipper - but filling the final forms made it self explanatory). Thank you, uShip!
