It's time for FOOTBALL. With the home season opener in Charlotte quickly approaching and a large party planed for the weekend my gas grill goes out dead as can be leaving me grill-less and scrambling for alternative plans I contact a friend in Tampa and she mentions that she is giving away her grill and I am welcome to if I can provide transport over the hundreds of miles that separate us. This is Monday the game is on Sunday Where on earth can I find affordable shipping on that short of a notice? I take to the internet and search everywhere get quotes ranging for $300-$500(the grill is only worth $600) finally, I stumble upon uShip.com a little hesitant at first, but I figure why not give it a try it's free to post a shipment request! as soon as I post bids came flooding in all of which beat previous quotes by a long shot and delivery time at least half that of which those quotes offered! Wednesday I accepted a bid from Jones & Sons(jay2003) and within minutes Jerry(the driver) is on phone arranging pick up and delivery of my grill that would arrive by friday night!! Jerry did a great job letting me know the progress of my shipment, I thought FedEx online tracing was great try being able to call the driver to find out the exact time your delivery is going to arrive! Not to mention Jerry had to travel through some of the worst weather of the summer!! Jerry was very friendly and took extra care unloading my shipment even in the pouring rain! Bottom line at kick-off tomorrow I will be grilling with my new grill and am sure to have very happy football fans at my house (Jerry you are welcome to come as long as you are a Panthers fan)! Thanks to Jerry and uShip.com. This will be the first place I look whenever I need anything shipped in the future. Once again Thank You uShip.com for providing a great site and a valuable service!!
