I needed my horse hauled from Portland to California in time to make a barge transportation to Hawaii. Service providers on the site reviewed my shipment listing and I began getting bids right away. It was easy to communicate with providers, and I was able to get text notifications to my phone with any important activity on my account -- which helped me to get the best bid possible for my needs. I found a great hauler (or should I say they found me), and my horse was hauled in time for hundreds less than what I would have had to pay with other companies! With uShip, haulers that are already making trips through where your shipment is located can find you on the site, and add you to their trip for less because you are helping to fill their shipment. It's a win-win! I will always come to uShip first from now on for any hauling needs I have. A great business concept and site that I will be recommending to others.
