I was looking for a shipping company. I ran across this site, and was happy about site, got a ton of bids, and everything was great until the end. I accepted the bid, and all of a sudden a silent $12.00 is added as a finders fee, not mentioned.. then I learn that I am to pay a deposit, which is fine,but it would have been nice if this company had taken the whole amount and sent the shipper the balance.. it was 2 separate pay pal transactions. Worse, after I won the bid, I wrote to the shipper and gave him the information for where he was to pick up the item with phone number, and where he was to deliver it, noting that I was yet in another state and would do everything by internet. Today, I got a FLAGGED message becasue I gave the shipper the subsequent information he needed to get a hold of where he was to pick up and drop off the item. I did not give my information out. The shipping label misprinted how the numbers so it was good to have this information out. I am not into violating policies, but I am trying to run rental units in another state and I need to be able to talk to people, and if I can give then the information they need, and it violates these people's policy, I guess we have a conflict, and I will have to rethink what sites I use in the future. All the information given was third party info... none of my own, and had someone read what was written, maybe they would have realized it. Not too excited about this site. it kind of ruined a good move, and a good professional mover.
