We purchased a 26' trailer from a seller in Billings, MT. We live in southern Illinois and the trip would have been over 2800 miles round trip for us to pick up ourselves. I found out about uship.com through eBay and I'm glad we did! Erik Meyer from Meyer Transport is a perfect example of the ideal service provider. He kept in contact before and during the shipping process and was VERY knowledgeable about the shipping industry and what documentation I did and did not need to provide prior to the pickup. We received a couple bids that were lower than Erik's but I was not comfortable with the lack of their feedback or their responses to questions that I had asked them. We chose Erik and are glad we did. He just dropped the trailer off an hour ago and we don't have one bad thing to say about our experience with uship.com or Meyer Transport. In fact, I feel that Erik went over and above the call of duty. When he picked up our trailer, there was some problems with the brakes and the wheel bearings. He fixed those problems and did not charge us anything extra for the repairs. He also spent a couple hours in the emergency room during the trip due to a personal injury and he only missed his anticipated delivery time by about four hours! I'm not sure how many other drivers would have continued on the trip with a torn ligament and wearing a knee brace for the majority of the trip. Based on our experience, I would recommend Erik Meyer of Meyer Transport and uship.com to anyone looking to have anything shipped.
