The web pages on Uship were helpful in getting the bid out - the web pages did not accomodate the ability to pick up two items at two different address IE in Florida and then deliver to two different addresses in Ontario. So need to clarify this with the trucker after the bid was offered and accepted. This could be a problem with some truckers - but not for BOB. Bob ran into some problems while on the road with my load. A tire blew out twice on the way home and the trailer lights did not work right as they were corroded from salt air. This was nothing to Bob and he had the things required to fix them with him. Being on a very tight budget - I was nervous as to what this was going to add to the cost. Bob was great - I paid for a new tail light and he said no charge for the rest of the work and a used tire. People like this make the uShipers through uShip credible and trust worthy. Bob is now a friend as we have a lot in common and he and I get along. A smart man who knows how to treat customers and kept him and his staff updated on the progress of the trip and coming through the border. He treated things like they were his and this is what you want when you have a shipper. I will work with Bob again in the near future - a good man who had the proper permits and insurance in place to do the job right. He put in long hours and never a complaint. Thank you Bob and uShip. Job well done
