We had purchased two stallions that were 1300 miles from my residence in Grand Junction, CO. We had made a decision that these would be the last stallions that my husband and I would be purchasing after being the horse business for over 50 years. It was very important that the best of care be taken in the transportation and delivery of these stallions. A lot time and consideration had gone into the purchasing of these two young stallions and it was important that they arrive here in Colorado healthy and with no negative hauling experience as a result of the haul. I came across a uShip advertisement and decided to give them a try, hoping for a reasonably priced hauling quote. I know that hauling this time of year could be a nighmare and a very unpleasant experience. We really wanted a competent hauler. After receiving the bid from Linda all my contacts with her were professional and reassuring. Even after I had to change the pickup dates due to my husband's illness, Linda was just great and happily made the change. Linda's drivers stayed in touch with the pickup destinations and everything worked like clockwork. Arthur and Rick handled the horses wonderfully and really seemed to care abour them. They were patient and reassuring to the stallions. I have really enjoyed this experience and would like to thank uShip for this opportunity to work with Linda and now I will definitely have a hauler that I can contact and depend upon with any future business dealings for Cloud Chaser Quarter Horses. I would eagerly use uShip again with total confidence. Thank you uShip - Cindy (Wheeler) Clayton
