I am Active Duty Military, assigned overseas in a remote location and couldn't bring my old dog with me. After three years, my sister had to move and couldn't keep him any more, so I had to find a way to move Samson from CA to my mom in OK. Commercial airlines could only have gotten him as far as Houston, and were crazy expensive. I stumbled upon uShip on an internet search, and mulled it over for a few days before I decided to give it a shot, and see what happened. Within hours of listing Samson for shipment, I had several responses. Two of the providers were very willing to answer questions, the other - not so much. Ultimately, I chose Matt and Wolverine Transport, mainly because of his positive attitude, quick response to inquiries, and experience. Despite the fact that I didn't accept Matt's bid until the first pickup date had pretty much expired and assumed that we would hit the second pickup date, Matt turned it around in a matter of hours. Before I knew what was going on, he had already made arrangements to get Samson picked up that afternoon! Talk about fast! He didn't take me seriously when I told him Samson sheds like mad, and wore a black shirt, which was quickly covered with white fur when he picked Samson up to put him in the truck! He also had a blizzard inside his truck when he opened the window!! His e-mail to me was hilarious, had me rolling with laughter, and reassured me that Samson was in good hands. Anybody with a sense of humor like that has definitely got a soft spot for animals. He left such a great impression on both my sister and my mom that I have wholeheartedly recommended him to several people and organizations that work with dogs. If I have a need for any shipping services in the future, he will be the first person I contact! Thanks for taking such great care of Samson Matt! Your caring for animals shines brightly! I wish continued Health, Happiness, and Prosperity to you, your family, and your business! sam
