I recently bought a used boat and due to an error on my part I damaged one of the gearboxes. After spending $$$$$ on the boat (wife not convinced that it was the best idea) I broke the news to my wife....(now convinced IT WAS NOT the bset idea)! I managed to track one down on ebay and got a great deal saved $$$$ the problem I was now faced with was "how do I get this gearbox back to Ohio.....for reasonable fee"? I checked into Fedex, UPS et al and it was the same thing every time, as soon as I caculated the weight and dimensions it became freight and not a "regular" package. Their fees werectotally unacceptable almost $300. I even went so far as to try to get Fedex to take it and the driver refused it. I turned to uShip and my saviour appeared. The guy I hired to collect and deliver my freight was awesome! He gave me a great deal, comparable to Fedex Ground rates and no hassles at all! Not only that when there was a problem reaching the person I purchased my gearbox from in Baltimore he stuck around while I tried frantically to reach the guy. I called my carrier back who was already on the turnpike heading back to Ohio and told him I'd reached the guy in Baltimore without hesitating he told me he was turning around to get my gearbox (beat that service Fedex)! What more can I say, he saved the day, my boat and possibly my marriage too!!! Would I use uShip again.....my wife says Yes! Great service, great price, great idea!
