I had been trying to find a transporter through brokers for over a month, but was unable to find any trucks heading to North Dakota in the dead of winter. I was told by a friend about Uship. To my surprise, I was able to arrange first class shipping overnight! I plugged in my information the night I learned of UShip. The next morning, I checked my e-mail and I had several bids. I compared the reputations/feedback of the various transporters and the price bid and decided to choose Joe(Exotic car/bike transport). Joe had a 100% feedback score. Joe and I talked on the phone that morning and agreed to do business. My car arrived about 5 days later, which was excellent considering the horrible weather, the distance from California to North Dakota, and Joe's busy schedule with other vehicles he had to transport. Not to mention, the brokers couldn't get nothing arranged in over a month. Joe checked the car over prior to leaving the dealership, was able to discover a couple minor problems with the car and reported it to me. I was able to contact the dealership and arrange to have those minor issues taken care of at a later date. Joe's diligence and keen eye was able to alert me to issues before the car left the dealership. This was good because I would be able to tell the dealership that those issues existed prior to shipping, and thus they agreed to take care of them. I am very pleased with Joe's service. I am glad that I was able to use Joe and cut out the middleman(broker type transport companies). USHIP allowed me to deal directly with the transporter. This ensured that I knew who and what I was dealing with. With a broker, you don't know who they will get to ship your car. Uship allowed me to pick the best bid, pick the shipper with the highest feedback score, and resulted in an excellent shipping experience. In the end, I think I saved several hundred dollars or more going through USHIP. Plus, I saved a lot of time!
