Having never used uShip before, I was a bit wary. And it's good to be wary on-line. There are more scams out there than one can imagine. But uShip and their highly-rated shippers are totally legit.
I was surprised by the high quote I got from UPS Freight, so I turned to Google and found uShip. It was the luck of my shipper's schedule that the custom furniture I built was picked up on a Thursday in Michigan, and delivered to my niece in Minneapolis THE NEXT DAY in perfect condition. At less than half the price quoted by UPS Freight. During the worst subzero weather in years.
My shipper - James Pries AKA caddypartz and Justcall2haul - stayed in constant contact with me about his schedule via text and the entire process was entirely on-schedule.
Beware of dealing with businesses you come across on-line. But be confident in dealing with uShips highly-rated shippers!
