I had a home gym that was in its original crate that I needed shipped from Pennsylvania to California. The crate weighed over 1100lbs. I called a bunch of shipping companies to get quotes and the cheapest I could find was $800 (and I still needed to rent my own pallet jack to get the crate from the truck to my garage). UPS Freight wanted to charge me $1300 which sounded ridiculous to me. I put my item up on UShip trying to come in at $700. The first bid was for $695 and I thought, "Wow, that's great!!". A few minutes later another bid came in for $675. I was shocked, but I figured why not wait and see if anyone would come in lower. To make a long story short, the bid I accepted was for $599 and they would bring the crate into my garage for no extra charge. They said it would take 5 to 7 business days from the time the item was picked up. Sure enough, five days after it was picked up they were calling to drop it off. But the best part was that it was UPS Freight that had shipped it. The shipping broker was able to save me over $700 on my shipment!!! I can't stop telling people about how great this has been. I saved a ton of money and was still able to have my item shipped by a reputable company!!! I would recommend UShip to anyone looking to ship anything anywhere. It has truly been a great experience!!!
