I was bidding on a double bass through eBay and understandably had no shipping options from the seller other than pick-up. Unfortunately the bass resided more than half way across the country. This particular bass was something I had been looking to purchase for over 3 years and I couldn't give up the deal. I had never heard of uShip at the time, and my friend came across the site doing his normal web search. I only had two days left before the auction and I needed to be sure I could get the bass across the country before bidding. I found it very easy and intuitive to enter my shipping description and requirements, and within hours Anita (the eventual shipper) responded and things starting falling in place. The automated phone alerts were awesome and informed my exactly when a correspondance was initiated from this potential shipper. Her husband is a musician and understood the proper ways to handle the instrument and the two gave me the utmost confidence they could deliver the bass with no hitches. I made sure I won the bid and Anita assisted with all the pickup and delivery details. The bass was picked up on Obama's Inauguration day and delivered safely not too long after. I am a satified customer of uShip and genuinely amazed of the processes and service this company provides. If needed I will definitely use uShip in the future as well as recommend it to friends and family.
