When planning a long distance move, I was searching for a shipping company to transport my horse and stumbled across 'uship.com' on a web search. I loved the fact that you could read other people's reviews which made the decision easier. I didn't have to 'run blindly into the abyss'. When dealing with animals, it is especially important to find people who are avid animal lovers and knowledgeable in their field. You are putting your animal's life in their hands...you worry as if they were your own child. But with uship, you are able to read other's reviews AND ask questions of the transporters ahead of time, in order to make the choice that is best for you.
While I didn't recieve dozens of bids, I knew the people who bid on our shipment were professionals in their field. I liked the way you could communicate with them up front in order to find out if they were really able to meet your needs. My shipper was already planning a route from Maine to Florida and we were able to fit my horse right into the plan. It worked out perfectly and everyone was happy, especially my horse.
A couple of nice things I noticed were that they asked me if he could have peppermints (as a treat), unfortunately we don't allow treats because then he would tend to want to bite when you approach him (always expecting a treat!), but I was happy that they asked first if it would be okay, and that they would have given him treats if he were allowed. Also when I told Sharon that he loved to 'paw' quite a bit in the trailer, she immediately gave him a hay bag that was enclosed so that he could not get his foot tangled in it! That was great thinking on her part!
I would definitely use the 'uship' service, as well as the services of GBF Enterprises, in the future!! Thanks Ben & Sharon for a great shipping experience for me and my horse!! And thanks 'uship' for the service you provide in helping people match with companies that truly fit their needs!!!
