This was my oldest child going from GA to WVA to start graduate school, leaving the nest. The car was a gift from her father, in Texas, and none of us was up to the long drive Texas to West Virginia. The child has never owned a car before,is financially on her own with a very limited budget. We checked out other solutions, such as shipping with a major company, too expensive...finding uShip was so good, several good bids, and the shipper we dealt with provided excellent service. Contacted us early on, we reset the move date several times, reassured that nervous father in Texas about insurance and reliability, handled the deposits and payment on site very professionally, met time agreements and kept in touch with us both (Mom at home in GA and Dad driving Ga. to W. VA.) while bringing the car up, re condition of the car, any problems with driving. So, the college child has her car in good shape and her budget survived and now all she has to do is drive safely in the ice and snow!
