First off, this was both my and my service provider's first time using UShip. Tim W of C.A.R.S. (itr97143) decided to use UShip to earn some extra money while driving cross-country from Dallas, TX, to which he flew to pick up a new truck, to St. Paul, MN, where he was to pick up a wrecking bed for his truck, and on back to western WA. I decided to use UShip when all the standard delivery services wanted to charge for shipping more than my item (a 150 lb tool chest purchased on Ebay) cost in the first place. I listed my tool chest on UShip and wondered if I'd even get one bid. I was amazed when I got several bids, but they were all above my max. Then Tim submitted a bid that was in my budget. I wondered if I should match with him, since he had 0 feedback, but I realized that I, too, had 0 feedback, and he had made the decision to bid on my item. I decided to give him a chance as well. To deliver my tool chest, not only did he drive nearly 24 hours straight, through snow and cold, going out of his way both to pick up and deliver the tool chest, but he was always available to be contacted by cell phone, and he kept me updated at regular intervals on his progress. I am utterly impressed by how smoothly the whole transaction went, and I am amazed at how well UShip worked for both of us! I highly recommend it to anyone needing something shipped for a reasonable price. Thank you so much! Now I have my tool chest in time for me to put a big bow on it and give it to my husband for Valentine's Day! -Tessa
