I was worried about getting my horses shipped from New Mexico to Virginia--in January, no less--when I'd heard that my 24-year-old gelding was not eating well and was very thin. But this shipment went very well. Pickup was around 9:30 in the evening and delivery was at 3:30 a.m. thirty hours later. They walked off the van as though they were leaving their own personal limosine. The shippers called me, sent me pictures, reassured me on issues that they knew a horse owner would be particularly concerned about, responded very quickly when I called them, worked easily through a minor confusion about the delivery site, and were generally terrific. (And both the horses were just fine!) I was a little hesitant about using uShip--I didn't know what I'd be getting into. I was surprised at the number of responses I got right away, delighted at the ability to ask questions and get answers, and the note that came with one quote ("There is a 95% chance that this is the best price you'll get") really startled and pleased me. I'm definitely willing to give uShip another try if I ever need to ship anything else.
