I was looking for a shipper to transport a compact backhoe I had purchased from a neighboring state...300 mile trip. I was getting prices around $1500 from haulers I regularly use with my manufacturing business. With my business I am paying around $1.75 per mile for a whole tractor-trailer. I was getting prices around $5.00 per mile to transport my little 8000 lb backhoe. With Uship, I got several offers within 8 hours, of around $2.00 to $2.25 per mile, which I was very happy with. The shipper had lots of good feedback and he lived up to that reputation. Very easy system to use. Will DEFINITELY use again.
