I was going to fly into Denver to pick up my recently purchased motorcycle. My plan was to mountain bike and use the bike to ride around Denver for a few days,then meet up with a friend and ride to Kansas. Bike was going to get shipped from Kansas to Chicago. But plans were cancelled due to work. I spent two days looking for shippers and quotes buy phone and email. I always saw the uShip listed on search engine but thought it was like other sites where u leave all your information and nothing happens. I decided to use uShip for the following reasons. It linked my Ebay account, gave a quick ship quotes, auction style like Ebay, and now after using it, it was very easy to use. I had 2 shipping quotes within 24hrs! With both shippers able to pick up next day after posting with very resonable quotes. My paypal transfer did not go through so I had to wait. By the end of 2 days I had enough shipping quotes to satisfy my need and I was ready to choose. I accepted the bid and payed thru Paypal and I was done. I received and email contacted my service provider. I was DONE! My service provider sent status email regularly. I was called with time of delivery and shipped did not fail to meet his time. I love the idea of uShip. When trying to ship without uShip I was looking for and contacting shippers and giving the same information everytime and I would receive the same response, "Someone will contact me". But, I was never given a day or time when they were going to contact me. I love uShip, I would have to say it only took about 1hr of total time (over several days, my choice) to go from no shipping quote, to signing on to website, posting, checking my quotes, contacting shipper reguarding shipping, choosing service provider, booking shipping, and stating that service was completed. Thanks to uShip and Kst8er (service provider I choose) to making this a great experience.
