We purchased a label press in Atlanta, and needed to have it shipped across the country to Vancouver, WA. We did the standard google search to acquire shipping bids, yet they were all coming in around $4200.00. After further freight quoting searches on the internet, I came across www.uship.com, I was very reluctant, yet intrigued at the same time. I decided to give it a go, and I posted my shipping needs. I posted it as a max pay of $3000.00. We received bids the first night with in a couple of hours, and had more the next morning. We chose our shipper (bulldog01), and had our freight loaded and on its way with in 24 hours. Our cost was $2690.00, which was significantly lower than the $4200.00 which we were getting from other sources. We would strongly recommend to anybody that they give uship a go, as we are certain that it will save them money.
