I bought a car (1987 Camaro convertible) through a private owner without ever seeing it in person. That alone is a little un-nerving. Then I had to find a way to get it here, some 700 miles. I checked into the 'big name' transport companies, and they wanted between $550 and $895 for a large multi-car trailer. I placed a shipment on uShip and got a quote from sureshottransport37 for $390 plus uShip-fees, which I accepted. So now I have 2 reasons to be nervous as this was my first uShip experience as well. Darwin called and got all the details right away, and would be picking up the car the next morning! The car was placed on a 30 foot trailer (2 vehicles). He called when he picked up the car and went over in detail the condition of the car (knowing that I hadn't actually seen the car). Called a couple more times to keep me informed of the trip here, and we set up delivery time. He arrived on time (actually early) and the car was very securely tied down. He took great care in unloading the car, especially considering it sits pretty low to the ground. He even transported an extra set of wheels and tires which I bought for the car as well. It was a very positive experience and I couldn't be happier with the service Darwin provided and the care he showed in getting the car here. A great experience from beginning to end, thanks Darwin (sureshottransport37) and uShip!
