I was moving from Ohio to Arizona and for various reasons did not want to send my dogs via air carrier. I found the UShip site and registered for a shipment. I received an immediate reply from a shipper and his fees were very reasonable. Had I shipped the animals via the airlines I probably would have paid $150 - $200 more and experienced greater anxiety about their travel. The shipper kept me informed daily about the progress they were making and the status of my 3 dogs. He was truly an animal person and I knew they were in excellent hands. If the need arises, I will definitely use UShip in the future.
