When my wife and I were looking to purchase a fifth wheel I didnt know the one she would choose was in Arizona!! (we are in Maryland). After she had choose it, she taked me with finding away to move this 13,000 lbs of house accross the country. Fisrt not owning a truck the size to move it just yet I searched the internet and found USHIP. Posting was easy and soon bid's became to come in. Some low and some high, and being at first frugle I declined most of the high ones until I started reading the feedback. I determined to go with a mover that had feedback (some of the lower priced ones unfourtunatly had none). The shipper I had choose was also one I had declined so I wrote to him (Mr. Larry Pate) and asked him to re-bid. He asked why as I had declined his previouse offer and after explaining he did. I accepted his bib and we were in contact. He picked up my new camper on time drove over the memorial day weekend and was here ON TIME in perfect condition. The price was fair considering the cost of fuel and/or the cost to purchase a truck large enough to haul it. I urge everyone to provide feedback because it was the users of USHIP that helped me make a great decision, Without question I would use and recommend USHIP to anyone that needs goods moved.
