We are currently between homes as our home in Illinois sold, but the one in Colorado isn't quite done being built. For a variety of reasons, we had to leave one of our dogs behind in IL with friends while we made our way west to stay with family. Besides just missing Skip (a medium-sized German Shepherd mix), we knew that we were placing a burden on our friends who were caring for him. We wanted to have him with us again. We checked various options for getting Skip back to us - flying to IL and flying back with him, flying him by himself, driving both ways, and traditional pet shipment services. All of those options were complicated and expensive. By using uShip we not only saved money, but we also found a personable shipper who treated Skip as if he were part of the family rather than just another piece of cargo. uShip helped make this transition a bit more bearable. The family's excitement in seeing Skip again will only be surpassed by finally closing on our new house. :-) Thanks for a great service!
