I'd had poor experiences with shippers - guys making promises to get an order, then waiting 3 weeks to pick up - or worse yet, taking two weeks to deliver on a 500 mile trip.
This was awesome! From acceptance of a bid to delivery was a grand total of 5 days - and the bid price was 20% below average! I'd paid hundred of dollars more to go a fraction of the distance - did I mention this was a 1700 mile delivery?
It was great all around - thanks, Uship!
