I had to move 6 X 1300 lb Butt Welders (18’ of truck) from up-upstate New York (You can throw a rock into Canada) to Southern CT. The welders were on casters and I could not afford to have them palletized. I had three trucking brokers looking for van and flatbed service both LTL and full truck load. It took over 2 weeks for one of the brokers to find a potential driver and they wanted $1,400 for a 380 mile trip. After a week on USHIP I saved $600 and had the best shipping experience in my 15 years of moving machinery around North America. This was my first experience with USHIP I am looking forward to my next opportunity to use them.
