We are moving to Pennsylvania next month and thought the best way to transport our cats would be someone driving across the country. We booked our shippment and everything seemed to be going well untill we got a phone call saying the car had broken down. Right away we started looking for someone else to pick up our cats in Troy, IL. While searching we received a phone call from the Edwardsville police stating our cats had been taken to the lcal animal shelter and we had three days to pick them up. Jim came to our rescue and agreed to pick up our cats and transport them to Ambler. Jim went out of his way to take care of my babies and I am so grateful. We did not save a dime using UShip due to having to pay two people to ship our cats. We actually spent $500 more then if we flew the cats. Four hundred to the first shipper, $280 to the shelter to get our cats out, $250 to the new shipper and $20 to pay with a check! I will not use Uship again, you never know what kind of people you are working with. Jim was wonderful but our first shipper was terrible, leaving our cats in his car while he got on a greyhound bus, havning the car get towed and our cats going to an animal shelter.
