My husband died in January 2007. His passing at such a young age devastated us all. We moved from Idaho to Iowa 2 years ago when he was diagnosed, leaving most of our possessions stored in Idaho. Bit by bit we managed to get our things moved but not everything was here by the time he died. We learned about U-Ship too late. The last thing left was Mike's horse. I have already had to give up so much that belonged to him (including Mike himself) and thought I would also have to give up Milo. Then I learned about U-ship. Everyone who bid was kind. Patrick at Dotson Horse Transport gave us a good bid and the timing clicked. My daughter was in Boise on business and was returning on 8-17, the carrier said they could make it to Idaho on the 16th and connect with her for our boy before she had to fly out. They were patient with him as he has only ever been loaded twice in his 7 years. They took exceptional care of him enroute and stayed in close touch with us along the way. Mike Dotson notified us when he was an hour & a half away so that we had ample time to meet him at the pasture to unload. All in all, this was a wonderfull experience. I wish we had known about U-ship 2 years ago when I had to move us as I would surely have utilized your services. I have every intention of recommending you to everyone I know!
