My husband graduated and we had to move rather quickly from our home In Idaho to Houston Texas. We left EVERYTHING, but there are some things that you just can't leave... Like my horses. (for all you who don't have horses... your horses are family too) I was only able to fit four horses in my trailer leaving one of my horses left behind at my in-laws house in northern Utah. Problem after problem reared it's ugly head and I was unable to make the return trip to get my last horse! I had used Uship in the past to get a couple of dogs from North Carolina to Idaho, and was blown away that I was able to get two adult Dobermans shipped to me for less than half the price of flying them in (not to mention the dogs where spoiled and babied the whole trip, which was so much nicer than a stressful flight). So I tryed Uship again HOPING I could get a bid within reason to ship my beloved horse. I recieved SIX bids within 24 hours, every single one of them were well under the cost of a comercial horse shipper and they all provided one on one special care of the horse! I chose Agman93 (robert) for flexability reasons. My horse was here in Texas TWO DAYS after he was picked up in Utah! That is over 30 hours of driving! WOW. My Horse came healthy, happy, relaxed, and showed no signs of road fatigue. He was watered, fed, and the shipper was SO GREAT to work with! Thank you Robert. Thank you U-ship. Forget the big commercial over priced shippers, I am sold on U-ship now and forever. THANK YOU
