I recently relocated from Southern California to Western Washington and had to leave behind my three best friends until I could make arrangements for their trip. I put an ad in the newspaper, on Craiglist and through word of mouth everywhere for someone out there to help them make the trip.....all with no luck! Then while searching for help on the net, I discovered U-Ship. What a great service. I placed and ad to see what I could come up with and what do ya know, I actually got a response within the hour! Not just any response, but a bid that was much to my surprise substantially lower than what I was expecting (by about $1000) My shippers name is Don Weideman of All Directions Horse Transport. I was so anxious to get my horses here that I quickly responded to his bid and after much communication with him and several questions answered along with reassurance, I accepted the offer. The U-ship site is easy to navigate and I would highly recommend it to anyone for shipment of anything...including your best friends and if Don Weideman has provided the bid to you....accept it. You won't find anyone better!!!!!
