I purchased a boat off EBay & I am actually the recipient. I signed up for uShip to receive bids for hauling the boat. I figured the savings of using uShip versus traveling to Dayton, Ohio from Lake Charles, LA & the savings were enormous so the bidding began. Time & money saved for me personally being a trucker & taking off from work, it was better to contract the load out. 3rdgentrucker(Mr. Harris) placed his bid on the run along with others, he wasn't the lowest nor the highest, I chose to accept his bid after figuring the numbers. I informed the service providers that I was the recipient & they worked with me, as if I was the shipper. After contacting 3rdgentrucker, the shipment began. He had very good communication skills, knowledgeable trucker skills, time frame, directions & move by move information of hauling the load to me. Once Mr. Harris was a few miles out, he called with an ETA & drove straight to my location. Mr. Harris arrived & I informed him I was going to take the boat to the boat yard & he offered to continue the journey & delivered the boat for me. I believe this is going above & beyond of having a satisfied customer. I will definitely use 3rdgentrucker for all my future shipping needs. I highly recommend Mr. Harris to anyone. Thanks Mr. Harris for a job well done!!! I will definitely use uShip again because it was cost & time effective due to me owning a trucking business.
