I was searching for the perfect mare to switch out with the gelding I had that just didn't fit my experience level, and I forgot that Alabama wasn't as close to Texas as I thought it was, and ended up finding my perfect riding horse in Alabama. At this point, I was concerned about the shipping because gas prices were high at the moment and I knew that a drive that distance was going to cost me at LEAST $600. I went ahead and booked the transportation I normally use, not on this site, and they quoted me $525 for Mid Decemeber delivery. I had enough for transportation, until I sold my gelding for less than I wanted, and was short about $400. $525 at that point was too much for me, but I didn't want to give up my dream mare, so I thought of uship. I came here and, knowing what my other transporter had quoted me, gave me a better price idea for bids. I ended up finding someone to transport her for $300, which is exactly what I was aiming for, and the transporter was even nicer because they worked with me on the price! They had originally quoted me higher, but then when I mentioned that I had been short changed on my gelding and just wouldn't have enough to pay them by the time they were to arrive the next week at the price they had quoted me, they asked me to name a price, and accepted MY offer of $300! I was surprised! I never thought I would find or meet someone that could be so nice and understanding!! And the best part is...she was delivered even sooner than mid Decemeber!!! I received her a whole month and a half earlier, and $225 cheaper, than my other transporter had quoted me!! I guarentee the next time I need a horse transported for me, I'll be re-using the same transporter from this site, if they have a slot available for me!! A++++++++++++++++++!!!
