I had bought a horse that wasn't too far from me, but I don't have a truck or trailer to be able to go and get him myself. The owner said she would bring him down, but not for 5 weeks. I was too excited to wait, so I started to look for transporters that would transport him down sooner and for the same price that the owner would have transported him down for if I were to just have waited.
As soon as I posted on Uship, I had a few people give me bids over a span of 2 weeks, of which one of them had bid $125. It was $25 higher than what I was wanting to spend, but I was more than willing to accept the bid, and considered the $25 to be a sorta "rush delivery" fee equivilant.
I had a very positive experience with RLH Transport. They did everything they said they would and had very good communication as well as cooporation and understanding. They know horses very, very well on both handling and the understanding of their personalities and their needs, and they even gave me some good advice, which really helps me because I'm a first time full sized horse owner AND rider.
What I thought was really cool, is that they also train horses to become trail worthy/bomb proof/kid safe horses, which is exactly what I had been looking for, for another one of my horses that needed some training. They dropped my horse off and took my other horse with them for training. I just thought that was so awesome....right time at the right place. And their pricing is also very reasonable, especially with the gas prices the way they are. I will definitely transport with them in the future and even go to them for my training needs. Thanks RLH Transport!
And I will use Uship again if I need anything else shipped. So far it's the best place I have found that helped me to quickly find a shipper. It's better than searching all over the place and never finding anyone. Doing it here...the shippers come to you, and that's just awesome when you're in a rush to find someone. Thanks Uship!
