We rarely need to send anything above 50 pounds so I expected to spend a lot of time calling for quotes to ship 3 pallets of cable (+/- 2500#) from our warehouse. Then I found UShip.com... Not knowing what to expect, I entered all of the information requested and pressed the submit button. Within minutes, I had 2 quotes for returning the goods to the manufacturer. It was almost too good to be true! And the prices were extremely competitive when compared against the company who had already given me a quote.
After checking out the businesses on the UShip pages and through Better Business Bureau (I was paranoid about being caught in a scam...), I awarded the bid to 1psi and events proceeded quickly. The pallets were picked up the next day (Friday the 13th!) and delivered the following Monday. I even learned a little about using PayPal! Altogether an easy, affordable, and stress-free transaction.
Whenever I need another shipment, I'll be back on UShip asking for bids. It's a wonderful website performing a valuable service. My thanks to everyone for your assistance and patience with my questions and concerns. UShip & 1psi are my Favorites! :)
