I saved hundreds of dollars booking my move through uShip. I needed to move 2 large and very heavy aquariums (150G and 225G with matching stands) to my home that I had purchased from a seller 2 hours away. Every quote I had received prior to trying uShip was between $500-$1200. Through uShip I was able to secure a Service Provider for $140, saving me great deal of money. I found the site and system very intuitive and easy to use. I was able to see the various quotes coming in to me, look at the details behind each Service Provider, communicate with those providers directly via the site and choose the one I felt most comfortable with. Since what I was shipping was very fragile, I wanted to make sure they were going to arrive in one piece. The Service Provider I chose did an excellent job of moving things safely and timely. The next time I need something shipped/moved, uShip will be the first place I come to for service.
