My husband is working at the refinery in Big Spring, TX and our home is in China, TX (about 600 miles apart). The situation arose that my husband needed to provide his own living accommodations ASAP. Since he is working 10-12 hour days, it was not practical for him to shop around for a travel trailer. So, I bought a 5th wheel RV for him to live in at a dealership in Beaumont. The problem arose on how to bring it up to him, since we did not have a pickup with the towing capacity to pull it. I had read about the uShip site and decided to try it out. I needed to find a shipper within 24 hours and so I marked my posting on the uShip site as "Urgent". I was surprised to get three shippers asking about my needs within minutes of my posting. The site was user friendly and is full of useful information about shipping. The shipper I ended up using, Doug (User Name: dg2000), was fantastic. He answered all of my questions and communicated to both my husband and I throughout the trip. He values safety and provides excellent service. The RV arrived in Big Spring in perfect condition on schedule. I would highly recommend Doug to anyone needed to haul anything. I ended up saving about $1000 using uShip and was able to have the RV hauled to my husband is less than 24 hours. I am very happy with the services uShip provides and have already recommended both Doug and uShip to several friends.
