Enough of my belongings were left in Atlanta when I moved to California two years ago that I knew I would need to arrange shipping at some point. Since I was staging a home in Atlanta, I had more stuff than I could carry back with me during my visits but not enough that consituted a moving truck again (nor the expense). But I found UShip during my search for the shipper that best suited my needs. The major relocation companies had minimum pricing and weight. I felt my shipping requirements were just not addressed in the market. Discovering USHip, I realized their model was perfect for all customers with shipping various/custom needs. I was able to list my maximum price I could afford and understand the implications and costs of shipping so that I could evaluate final costs properly. The tools in the website to list, bid, communicate with shippers, track your shipments, etc are invaluable! UShip connected me with a cross country driver who marketed to people like me. My belongings were important to me, I needed to make the arrangments remotely, and I could offer some flexibilty with the pickup and delivery dates. What a great fit! I safely received all of my belongings when expected and the small business owner made an honest profit. I have already recommended and raved about the UShip resources! I will use it again and refer others.
