Wow, did I find a great shipper! Paul from Executran actually exceeded my expectations. I had two valuable, hand-made tables that I purchased from an art gallery in North Carolina. I bought them without really considering what it would take to ship them to my home in Tampa. For two weeks I called shippers trying to find one to do the work. Most would not take the job, many took a day or two to return my calls, some gave me a ridiculous quote, and a few reacted like a cow looking at a new gate. What was the big deal? All I wanted was someone to pack and ship two tables and I was willing to pay a reasonable price for the service. And then I found uShip! What did I have to loose? I’d submit a listing and accept a bid only if I liked it. Within a day of submitting my listing I received a bid from Executran. It didn’t look right though - the bid was on the low end of what I considered reasonable. But Executran offered $100,000 cargo insurance for no additional charge, had a good profile, and great feedbacks. I accepted the bid. A few hours later I was contacted by Executran and spoke with Paul. I made sure he understood what he would be moving and asked if he might need to adjust his quote. No, the price was right he said and arranged days for pick-up and delivery. Paul contacted the gallery, showed up on time and packed and loaded my prize tables. As a matter of fact, the gallery called me just after Paul left and said he had done an outstanding job of packing and the items were sure to be delivered in good condition. He was right. Executran delivered and unpacked my tables which looked every bit as good as when I had left them in the gallery. Throughout the whole shipping experience, Paul called to let me know what was happening and where he was. Before it was done, Paul had become my friend. What a great was to do business! My hat’s off to you Paul, and to uShip for providing a valuable service and putting me in touch with such an excellent shipper. Thanks
