My friend moved up here to stay for a few months. She had 18 pet rats and a few boxes of personal belongings. They were all picked up the night before she left Texas and arrived the night after she arrived. All the animals made it and everything arrived in good order. Jim was very friendly, and was pretty accurate on the pick-up and delivbery times he gave us. I look forward to working with him in the future. I defintely plan on using uShip again. I don't have any idea how much it would be to transport 18 rats and several boxes commercially, but I'm sure it would have been a lot more than $800. Thanks uShip.
