The company I finally chose was spot on and totally professional. Having said that, there were cheaper bids from other transporters but like anything else in life -- when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Therefore, I used my commonsense and chose a provider who had feedback and offered a realistic bid, and I stayed clear of transporters bids who I knew couldn't physically do the job for that price without losing money.
My household goods from a 3 bedroom house were delivered without any problems, and the price was cheap compared to other quotes I had from other transport companies -- who were not on uShip. Would I use uShip again? I would definitely use them again because I know I won't find cheaper prices anywhere else. Also, uShip provide all the information needed for you to protect yourself from being ripped off. Thus, enables you to make an educated guess in regards to which transporters bids to except, and weed out the transporters who are only bidding to prevent genuine companies from winning bids.
End of the day uShip are only brokers, and even if you were to deal directly with transporters, you would still run the risk of picking a rubbish one. Therefore, uShip helps make the whole process of picking the right company a lot easier.
