I was shipping a fully equiped concession trailer for my new business. FISH and CHIPS. I found this superb trailer in Florida however i lived nearly 3000 miles away near Las Vegas. The purchase of this trailer is the making of a long time dream to start a fish and chips restaurant. So after purchase the manufacturer told me they could ship it for somewhere near $3200 Every penny counts when starting a business so i hoped to find a better price for shipping even if I had to go pick it up myself. Well someone soon after told me about uship, what agreat idea I thought. ebay in reverse. So i posted my shipment in haste immediatly recieving several offers, gun ho shippers ready to pick it up that day, much cheaper than my original price. I quickly realized i would have to deny all these bids and wait until the trailer actually had a completion date. When that day arrived i requested re-bids from several shippers, i recived several offers from many shippers but i didnt accept the cheapest offer. The great thing about uship is the feedback and ratings on the shippers and i chose hotshotexpress67 even though there were other cheaper bid i couldnt beat his price for the quality, and great feedback he had. I felt very confident with hotshotexpress67 especially after his prompt and frequent commuication. The process went very smoothly as the sghipper arranged directly witht he manufacturer for pickup, i had to do nothing. Even through delays at the manufacturer hotshotexpress67 was able to pick up, quickly ad safely delivery our new prized possession. Probably not unique in the items being shipped across the country but for us this was a first experience. It was a smooth and comfortable process. I would most definatly use uship for all my shipping needs, especially when I purchase the next concession trailer, i will use hotshotexpress67 on every occasion. Thanks, Brad
