All I wanted was to ship my boat from Florida to Virginia. Easy you'd think? Wrong! After waiting days for unreturned calls, dealing with reluctant half promises to get back to me, and take it or leave it estimates over $6,000, I was getting worried and a little desperate. I stumbled onto Uship through a Google search. This was my first experiance with Uship and I was a little leary of yet another web site asking for my address and phone number, but I took a shot and I am very happy I did. Within 5 minutes of registering my shipping requirements on Uship, I had a bid for $2,5000. A savings of over $3,500 in 5 minutes! I ended up with 6 bids in one afternoon and selected Super B Transport in Florida. Bob called me to set the time and date, then called me daily until delivery with status updates, and called me again after delivery to thank me for the business. This was the best business transaction I've had in a very long time and the whole deal was set up with about 10 minutes of my time invested from start to finish. On time, at advertised cost, professional and courteous service. I wish this was something I ran into more often. Thanks Uship and thanks Super B Transport in Florida. This will be my first stop for shipping in the future.
