I had to move quickly from Chicago to Texas with a small budget and I couldn't believe uShip and how quick and easy it was to get my things home. My father had suggested the site as an option to ship my belongings and he was right. It was going to cost me nearly $2000 if I rented a uHaul and hitched my car! This was my first time using uShip and at first I was weary about using this service but I saw quickly how people responded and how low I was able to get my price matched. The one thing I would have to say is that I didn't realize there was a small administrative type fee that goes to uShip. However, I liked how it was refundable and that it was applied to the total cost so that made me feel better. I made sure that my boxes were packed and ready to go for the shipper. It is a tiresome job at times and I wanted to help out as much as I could. Ohiomedsizetruck1 was awesome. He kept me in the loop at all times, got my boxes packed and loaded in record time and then showed up when he was said he would and even came early. I was bummed I couldn't thank him myself since I was unable to be at the receiving site on the day he delivered. All in all it was a great experience and I will most definitely use uShip again! Hopefully Kyle can help me again :)
