I needed to send my car half the length of the country, I tried using the option to set a price and see if anyone would accept.
I had a reply almost instantly from a supplier to tell me the price was too low for anybody to be able to provide a good service - despite me using the top end of the guide price provided by the site.
Then someone sent a message saying they could do any date as they had trucks all over the coutry constantly (I had already specified a pre arranged date) so I accepted and then emailed the supplier directly to confirm date, I didn't hear back for a week so i started phoning and texting and it took several days to eventually make contact. When I did make contact I was told they were unavailable on my specified date which was infuriating given they had accepted the job with the date listed up front.
I arrange another date later the same week, I ask for assurances that this will go ahead this time and I'm told absolutely without a doubt they would be there at 8am to pick it up. No show on the arranged day and refusing to answer calls or texts and to this day still haven't heard back from them - and still haven't received my deposit refund from uship despite following the process (twice, first time no confirmation message so I made contact and was told to do it again).
I put up a fresh ad the same day and luckily a good supplier got in touch to say they were dropping off near my location and would be able to pick up the same morning.
Not sure if I will ever use the service again as I let the person receiving the car down with the postponement and it also cost me two days off work. I think I just got lucky on the day by actually getting someone to take the car for me.
