After searching the internet for hay for my horses, I finally located some about 100 miles North of me. We were in dire need due to the drought in 2006, and an armyworm infestation that wiped out all of our remaining grass. The hay was reasonably priced and located along the interstate. It was going to be easier to hire someone experienced with large trailers, than for us to take a chance hauling it ourselves. brnichol bidded on our shipment 3 days after it was listed and communicated with our hay supplier to arrange shipment. The poor guy even had to fix his trailer lights upon checking his trailer before shipment. He did make enough to cover his repair costs, but it was wonderful of him not to back out! He delivered the hay on the day and time as promised and I am very happy with USHIP allowing me to find a person willing to haul! The price he quoted was even less than a commercial shipper who could take it on a backhaul that we contacted earlier. I will definitely be using USHIP in the future when I need things shipped!
