I was concerned about joining, using UShip. However, after some research, I found the company to be reputable. I posted my item that needed shipped and immediately began to receive bids. Some were great prices, some were a bit high. As I read their feedback though, I began to draw a conclusion about which ones would ship in a timely manner, and which ones would take a month or more. When I received a great bid and read the shippers feedback, I knew I found the right shipper. I asked how soon they could ship, if they were insured, if they had a CDL license. All the answers came back positive. I accepted their bid and received a phone call only a few hours later to verify the information so there would be no mistakes in picking up my item. The called me every stop they made and about 1/2 hour before dropping off. I am thoroughly impressed with the process and will gladly use this system again instead of using a surly trucking company that charges too much money to ship items. Thanks for providing this great service and helping me pick the right shipper for the items I need shipped.
