I stumbled across UShip almost by accident. I won an RV auction on Ebay and got a terrific price. Then came the hard part - I had to get the thing back to me here in the Windsor/Detroit area from Philadelphia. Then came the really hard part - the seller informed me it had to be picked up within 6 days because he was leaving the country for 2 months! I scrambled around trying to find flights to Philly but having just started a new job there was no way I could take that much time off anyway. Then I scrambled around trying to track down a shipper and had almost no luck. Almost nobody could commit to getting it picked up before that Friday deadline. Finally I got a quote - $1200! It was steep but I was desperate and I gotten such a sweet deal I was willing to pay it.
Then I stumbled on UShip.
I looked over the site and realized what it was all about. Being a long time ebayer, I was very intrigued. I thought, what the heck, I'll give it a try. Since I already had a $1200 quote in my back pocket, I put a max price of $1000, hoping I might save a couple hundred bucks. I got the first bid within minutes. Then a little while later I got a bid from "retiredjeff" for $640. After exchanging a couple Q and A's with Jeff, we had a match. Just check out Jeff's feedback if you'd like to know how happy I was with his performance. Great guy and he did a great job. I will most definitely use his services again.
