A friend stumbled across the uShip site trying to help me find a safe and cost effective way to get our two large dogs and one cat moved cross-country. The airlines had countless restrictions and prohibitive costs. Amtrak won't take pets. "Concierge" services were very expensive. I was afraid I'd have to drive our whole menagerie the 2000 miles, worrying about rest stops and pet-friendly hotels. When my friend saw that pet transport was one of the uShip services, she had me input our info and we had a bid within a half hour. The cost was a fraction of the other transport options and the service we received from rapsbounty was superlative. I will definitely try uShip for other shipping needs that we might have in the future.
