I recently found myself in the positon of having to move. I was short on cash and I had to make arrangements to take a bus 1600 miles. At the time I booked my tickets, I wasn't sure if I could transport my cats on the bus. When I called to find out, I was heartborken because pets are not allowed to be transported this way. I have 2 young children and this move was going to be hard enough for them. And atthe thought of losing my cats, Tiger (9years old) and Blink (1 1/2years old), I was heartbroken. I looked on the internet to find if there was a company that shipped animals for people in our situation. I was shocked and dismayed to find that it would cost me alot more then I could afford. Then I found uShip. I saw that others like me were shipping their pets at a price that I could afford. I wasted no time in submitting my info to have the cats shipped. I still had a week or two to go before I moved, but wanted to waste no time. In one day, I had a bid to ship my pets! It was a little higher then I could afford, so I declined that bid as there was still time. I had a few questions from prospective shippers, and I answered them hoping to find a match. That same day, I recieved another bid to have my pets shipped for my target price. There were a few things to work out. So, throughout that day, I corresponded with my bidder, John. He was fantastic and went out of his way to accomodate every need I and my cats had. I am so grateful that I found uShip and John. I am able to move to North Dakota with my 2 childen and my cats. If I had to leave them behind, I would have lost a very special and valuable part of my family. Thank you uShip and John(jhndnfrth)!
