I was searching eBay in hopes of finding some good buys on laboratory equipment. I couldn't believe my luck when I landed a lightly used Millipore water system at a fraction of it's original cost. Then I realized...oh-oh...how am I going to get it from a lab in Knoxville, TN to the northeast US? I tried a couple of traditional shippers, but they either didn't provide the service I need, or they were ridiculously expensive. I searched the internet for alternatives and came upon uShip. In a few minutes I had signed up, listed the shipment I was trying to arrange, and started looking at the profiles of shippers. I requested bids from a couple of providers. I had 4 or 5 bids within 24 hours! Believe it or not, I took the highest bidder, not the lowest...because his profile indicated he would understand the care this item needed. Wow, did that decision work out right! Leonard Stine of Shofar drove to Knoxville, dealt with an unavoidable but frustrating delay at the pick up location, packed things up just right and delivered the water system to my door two days later. He kept me informed all along the process, and was friendly and professional. This uShip approach is great...thanks for being there!
