We needed to ship household goods (16 boxes worth, 50+ lbs each) across the country from Kentucky to Washington state. We investigated sending them by UPS, Fedex and even USPS, but it was going to cost a lot. USPS was the least, but we would have had to cart the boxes to the post office and send them parcel post, which would take quite a while and likely be tossed around a lot.
We found uShip online and decided to place an ad. We received bids from a few shippers. We narrowed it down & chose to use David and Nelson and accepted their bid. They were so prompt in answering all of my questions and were willing to be flexible with pickup times. By choosing to go with uShip, we literally saved several hundred of dollars over what it would have cost us to ship the same items the other ways we explored - even cheaper than USPS - and they were handled with much more care and arrived very quickly!
We were kept updated along the way and were able to check in on their status at any point. Everything arrived in perfect condition. It was obvious the shipment was handled with care while it was in their custody. The shipment actually arrived ahead of schedule.
This was a truly fantastic experience and I will most definitely use uShip's service and Nelson and David as shippers again. I am absolutely blown away by the world class service we received throughout the entire process. It far exceeded my expectations.
