Shipping a personal animal is pretty stressful. This is the second time I have done it and I do feel empathy toward the haulers putting up with us. Took quite a bit longer than expected but probably better for the animal in that perhaps he really did get to rest off the trailer and taking extra time should always be a good thing rather than a rush job. Didn't pick the lowest bid or the highest, went by feedback, which was very helpful. Will use UShip and would use brighteyes again.
