We had 2800 lbs of plastic containers coming out of the US to Canada and hadn't the first clue about how to get it to the border, let alone across it all using one carrier. We also didn't know what kind of rates to expect. uShip made it so easy to get bids. Once we'd seen the rates we could expect we asked the shipper to stack the skids higher. We cancelled the auction and resubmitted it with new dimensions, which gave the trucking companies extra space to work with and the rates improved significantly. We obtained a comparison quote with a national firm we ship with daily and they weren't even CLOSE to the bids we received! Our winning bidder was on the phone to thank us for the business almost as soon as they'd won. They made all the arrangements for pickup, customs, and dropoff and kept in touch the whole time. The hardest part of this whole transaction was unloading it on a chilly Canadian winter day! Thank you uShip for making our first cross-border shipment the most painless and effortless task ever!
