I bought a jet ski and trailer from a friend - and was excited about using it this summer. Only problem was that it was in Beaumont Texas, and I live in Northern Virginia. I had no idea how to get it home. Traditional shippers had too many requirements, and were not particularly interested in a one item shipment. Searching the internet, I came across UShip for the first time in late April. Somewhat reluctantly, I decided to list the jet ski and see what happens. I was pleasantly surprised. As I patiently awaited 'bids', several shippers offered their services. I had a choice of a few shippers at prices I thought were fair (and a few that wanted too much). I selected one with a significant amount of good feedback. The shipper was reliable, responsive and seemed motivated to get good feedback and continue with USHIP. I will use USHIP again. PS, wait a week or 2 after initially listing your shipment. In my experience, the bids became more reasonable over time.
