We had to transport some 20m3 of assorted household goods to Austria. We learned from the uship site through a friend, and we are pleased with the result. The bidding process was efficient, we were daily informed about any new offers and the entire process was very neat and clear. I estimate that the total cost may have been about half of what we would have paid by just contacting one of the bigger companies without competition. When we looked at the experiences of previous clients we noticed that a lot of them concerned the transport of one or two items only, with just a few requiring transportation of entire households. I think that for large shipments like ours it would be handy (albeit of course more expensive) if a pre-survey could be made regarding volume and weight. In our case that would have prevented the unexpected problems (but as I said earlier, those problems were efficiently and promptly solved on the spot by the company that we hired).
