My family and I recently moved to Illinois from Kansas. While I was somewhat hesitant to leave two vehicles behind, I had very few options. I found UShip by accident through a Google search, and I took a chance. After posting what I wanted to ship (a 1969 Ford Truck and a 1976 motorhome), within hours I had inquiries and bids. Not knowing how much it would even cost to ship, I was pleasantly surprised to find it cost about half of what I had estimated it would to ship my truck. Even though my truck was in driveable condition, I took the keys with me to Illinois. The shipper I chose patiently waited until a friend of mine brought the keys from Illinois to Kansas. After meeting my friend, the shipper loaded the vehicle and delivered the truck within two days. It would have cost exponentially more for me to have attempted to book the service on my own. In addition to a successful shipping experience, UShip provided excellent communication regarding bids. I opted to receive texts and calls. When I could, I checked my email and easily navigated to my pages to ask questions of bidders or to answer them. The winning bidder took time to ask me to confirm the truck's dimensions. I had posted the wrong width, and, fortunately, it fit on his hauler. I will continue to use UShip for my shipping needs.
