Coordinating a pick up of a load of clothing racks for a new business venture from a difficult New Jersey location, with a testy business owner was not the easiest thing we've ever tried to get done. Finding transportation out of his warehouse to our facility in Virginia was near about impossible until we were told about uShip.com. Within an hour of posting our need, we had a bid. The bid was out of our budget, but within another hour we had a number we could live with and booked the shipment. Star Lines made it a snap once we put the logistics of the shipment into their hands. A call from the driver when he arrived to get the trailer loaded ... had do a U-turn and back into a space I had trouble getting my pick up truck into the day before ... to William's (dispatcher) reassuring calls to advise the truck was about to turn into my farm, Star Lines turned an unpleasant purchase into a positive experience. Never did Star Lines make me feel I was troublesome or an irritant to them when I called with a question or to confirm an arrangement. With limited (wo)man power available to unload the trailer, we thought there'd be difficulties and delay in getting the job done given the way the seller packaged/packed everything. In the end, with some help from the friendly and courteous driver, we had everything safely and securely put into our storage area in less than an hour. As a woman owned facility and business we really appreciate the respectful way our transaction was completed. Why would anyone NOT consider putting their transportation/shipping needs on uShip.com? Will definately do it, again ... and, again, and again. Thanks, all. J. Shepard Chimaera Farms Inc
