I need to ship an Automotive engin with attached transmission from CA to FL. I heard about u-Ship and thought I would give it a try. I received 5 bids. I look at the first 2, one seemed real expensive and the other did not fit my needs. So I called around locally and talked to serveral trucking companies. The prices were out ragious compared to the bids I recieveived so I went back to my u-ship account and looked at the remaining bids. Lo and behold the least expensive bid offered me the services I was looking for - Residential pick up, a hydralic tailgate, pallet jack, evening pickup. I e-mailed the bidder thinking this is too good to be true. The bidder promptly (with in 2 hours and he is three hours ahead of my time) ;answered my e-mail and verified the cost of my shippment, the pick up day and time window. All that fit my needs and expectation. The pickup day came and the truck arrived at the specified time and 6 days later my shippment was delivered hassel free and no additional charges. They say when you get good service you tell a few people but when you get bad service you tell everybody. In this case it's the oppsite I have told all of my friends, relatives, co-workers and neighbors how well this all went and that they should use u-ship it if the need arises. Thank you.
