Our family moved from northern CA to just north of Atlanta GA. Orginally my husband and I considered just packing our Bullmastiff puppy up and bringing him along with us. After deceiding that it would be more complicated to try and move the dog and 2 small children 2600 miles we started looking for transportation options. Based on our dogs size and the distance that he needed to travel airfare was extremly expensive and would have been complicated for us to coordinate since we would be driving there over the course of a week. While doing a Yahoo search I came across UShip. After reviewing the website and feedback left by previous users I felt that this would be a good route for us. I liked that the listing was free and easy to do. Within days I had a bid that unfortunatly expired prior to me being able to accept. Then another bid from J&L Pet Transport. It was within our price range so we arranged for the transportation. I was able to pay via PayPal since they accepted electronic payments (I tend to avoid services that only accept cash)They arrived when expected and kept us updated on our puppies status as they progressed across the US. Due to unexpected weather in the MidWest they re-routed and ended up arriving a day prior to the expected delivery date. Normally this would not be an issue for people however they ended up arriving before we did. They were understanding and waited for us to get into town. Somehow I had overpaid them and they had to tell me about it (I was so busy I had not even noticed!) It was very good to see someone who is so honest. I would totally use UShip again and Jill and Linda for my pet transportation needed. Thanks every!
