I had a horse in south Florida that I had sold to a wonderful family in Pa. I needed the horse moved rapidly. I was no longer living in So. Fla. and did not know of anyone to make the haul. I searched the internet and discovered U-Ship. I was unfamiliar with this organization and a bit hesitant to use them. But I was desperate. I placed a call for bids on U-ship and received several nice bids. I was shocked at how quickly the bids came in. At first, I hesitated on accepting any bids but re listed when time became an issue. DMHauling made a wonderful plea and bid and I accepted him. I am so thankful I did. Dale of DM Hauling informed me of some "issues" on the shipping end. I needed to resolve those before the barn would release my horse. These were unknown and unexpected and put me in a pickle as I was living 1200 miles away. All the time, Dale waited patiently until those matters were resolved. Once resolved, Dale arrived in So Fla, retrieved my horse and a bunch of tack, loaded and headed off to PA. His delivery was much sooner than anticipated which was even more surprising. My horse was delivered to his new home in excellent condition. Dale followed up with me after the delivery and made some suggestions regarding my trailer which is still in So Fla. We are working on that now. If I need it hauled to PA, MD or elsewhere, I intend to use him. Overall, my experience with U-Ship was fantastic and I highly recommend it to anyone considering shipping something anywhere in the Continental U.S.
