As a hobbyist, I have four musclecars that have been following me as I have changed residences several times over the years.
In my experience, its been a challenge to find a shipper who can move vehicles that are a little longer than standard, a little more precious than average, and don't necessarily need them to run. I'm not shipping exotic cars, but I'm not shipping junk either. I typically need a shipper who is balanced between personal service and cost.
The uShip venue helped me find someone who was genuinely interested in earning the work. I received bids that I could evaluate and respond to quickly. This is much more efficient than making phone calls to shippers who don't return your calls, who can't quote you accurately, who make you fill out forms that are not applicable to you, or who simply don't ship the kind of things that you need moved. I also appreciate the uShip rating system where shippers are rated by customers rather than themselves!
I received several bids, but the one that I ultimately chose was very impressive. It was easy to see that this shipper was able to communicate professionally - quickly, efficiently, and most importantly in a positive way. This shipper actually read and responded to me specifically without using generic responses.
Its very important to have your shipment clearly defined and questions answered by both parties to ensure that your expectations are met. The uShip venue helps to promote these exchanges before your shipping agreement is finalized. We worked out additional items such as picking up the keys at a different site, putting air in tires, removing tarps, and other nuances incurred by cars in a long term storage facility . At the end of the day, the shipper knew the job, adjusted the price reasonably, made the winning bid, delivered the cars, and here I am today - taking time out of my day to report a terrific success.
Four Cars - Five Stars. Thanks uShip!
