My wife and I have camped our entired married life. Our childern are grown and we were looking for a little easier camping routine. We decided to look at purchasing a teardrop trailer. We found the one we wanted, but the dealer was located in Missouri and we live in California. The first information concerning shipping costs came in at between $2000 to $3000. We even looked at driving back to Missouri and bringing it back with us. Then I found uShip on the internet and tried it out. It was easy to fill out the required information and post it on the site. Within a few days I a number of bids. I was concern about shipping my teardrop this way, but after reading the info on the drivers and their reviews by other customers, I felt better. I made a match with one and saved over $1000. It would cost my wife and myself much more to make the 3200 mile round trip then what we paid to have it shipped to our driveway. The dealer in Mossouri was impressed and is planning to use this service. He said he lost possible customers because of the high cost shipping. Our service provider was excellent. He worked very well with the dealer and myself. He picked up the trailer when he said he would and dropped it off at my house 2 1/2 days later. He took care to make sure that the trailer arrived in perfect condition. I have already recommened uShip and would definitly use it again.
