I had a great experience using UShip. After getting several freight quotes, I decided to try this method. It saved me over $250 in shipping and palleting fees. Terry was fantastic.
Originally I was open to receiving equipment between Dec 14-16 (a weekend) But due to family Christmas changes Dec 15th was unavailable. I spoke with Terry, who said that was acceptable he would be in the night of the 14th - well my husbands corprate Xmas party was late booked at a restaurant that evening after I booked Terry. I called to let him know as soon as he was in the area to call me and I'd leave and come meet him. Worked out great!
At the end of our dinner Terry called and was 30 mins away (turned out to be only 15) so we left but we RAN OUT OF DIESEL FUEL on the way to meet him because my husband's idea was to fuel up after we got the equipment from Terry. Turns out my husband was wrong on his remaining fuel.
So Terry ended up waiting on us while a friend came by, picked him up, went to go get spare diesel fuel can, filled that with diesel and then we were back on the road. This is all when its about 40 degrees and raining outside. Terry just patiently waited. Then my husband dropped me off with Terry, he went to go get our trailer so we could put equipment in storage. Terry just waited and chatted with me while we waited for the other trailer. Terry was great! I would recommend him to anyone and will use this service again.
