For 35 years I had always shipped our racehorses. After a training accident left me in a wheelchair the task of finding quality transportation for the stable has been a nerve-wracking battle. Especially when securing a transport company that could handle the dicey situation of two 3 year old fillies that had never been off the farm they were bred and born on in the deep south. To futher complicate matters they were beginning their race training in Northern Ohio, a 1000 mile journey. The initial search for a shipper naturally started at the track where we race, but of course at this time no one was headed south with an immediate return North. So to the internet. After much research I decided to try uShip. I am delighted to say within 24 hours I had received 3 bids for the job, one I excluded right away because of the price quote. My decision was facilitated by the feedback section. SE Transport had rave reviews. Despite several set backs ranging from inconsiderate actions of people receiving horses shipped to their farms holding up the drivers, a multi-car pileup that completely shut down I-75 just outside of Atlanta for two hours, a pair of rogue acting South Carolina State Patrol cops who decided to tare search the truck and trailer to find absolutely nothing leaving the drivers to put everything back together to be on their way again after another two hours, to dense fog along the Ohio River in Cinncinati OH, not to mention the two hour ordeal of coaxing this pair of wayward farm maidens in a trailer for the next phase of their lives arrived in Cleveland in splendid fashion. So to anyone searching for a shipper certainly use uShip and request SE Transport for a bid, the price was great, the service professional, the drivers prompt even in the face of situations beyond their control. I will use uShip and SE Transport in the future for all my long distance shipping needs. What a Great Experience when the race stock walks off the trailer safe and sound.
