After months of looking for the perfect, dream pony for three little kids we found one on the internet. Perfect size, perfect temperment,perfect color and unbelievably the perfect price. Only one problem. We live in Texas and the Pony lived in eastern Virginia. 1500 miles not being insurmoutable for a Texan who had found the perfect pony, we checked with horse haulers. Opps, price was twice the cost of the pony to get him to Texas. I noticed the uship site and decided to give it a try before we turned down the "perfect pony". Within an hour of posting we got a bid from Woolverton Mtn. Transport. It was the "perfect bid". I love it when a plan comes together! The perfect pony arrived in Texas this afternoon in perfect condition delivered by the perfect haulers who took fabulous care of him and drove night and day to be sure the long trip was as easy as they could make it. UShip and Woolverton Mtn. Transport helped make it a perfect fall day in Texas for the "perfect pony" and three very excited if not so always "perfect" grandkids who were "perfectly excited". UShip is a great way to get things done efficiently. This seemingly almost impossible shipping cost problem was resolved in less than an hour. I highly recommend and boy do i hate hassel. The cost was less than half what we would have had to pay so uship sealed the deal for the perfect pony. We may just name him Obama because he is black, classy, smart and came from somewhere close to Washington DC.
