We recently won an auction on eBay for a large item (Bench Seat for a Van). ; I had no idea how to ship something like this. ; The eBay seller had listed the item with all shipping arrangements left  up to the buyer.  I really needed the seat for our van so we could have a van with enough seats for our family of 10.  My initial quotes to ship this seat were in excess of $450 dollars.   This was much more than the $315 we paid for the seat. ; I was very disappointed and had no idea were to turn. ; I found uShip through a search for "freight forwarding" on Google.  The winning bid for shipping my seat was $200. ; Thank you, uShip!

uShip has a fantastic web site and the service is absolutely incredible.  For the individual who needs to ship something big this is very much the way to go.  Major freight forwarders participate along side the small company mover of miscellaneous goods.  This is a very well done web interface that allows a business to business and consumer to business transaction in a simple easy to use manner.  Thank you for making this simple and taking the intimidation out of shipping large stuff.
