We were in need of shipping a big AQHA halter horse, nearly 17H and 1600lbs. Not just any horse trailer can accommodate a horse of his size. We checked into a few commercial haulers and were notified that prices would be very steep as all the commercial haulers ran east and west, not north and south. We had used Uship in the past to ship several foals to Texas and a barrel horse from TN. The nigh before we had planned to take off and go get the horse ourselves, we got a bid and accepted it. They claimed they could pick up the next day and deliver within two days. Well that sounded great, until their truck broke down. We waited, and waited, and waited, but because they couldn’t give us a straight answer we had to take other measures. We had a show in a week and need to the horse home to get papers transferred and him in shape and ready to go. Well again, we turned to Uship and within a few minutes of adding the shipment, we had a bid, accepted and the next day he was picked up. The seller was very happy with their treatment, the timeliness, and the overall condition of the rig. Within the next day, the horse was home and in his stall. I will defiantly be using Uship again. It gives the horse owner a piece of mind to be able to read feedback and have a safety net if something does happen.
