I was referred to uShip after purchasing a houseboat 500 miles from my home, which needed delivered. Although I received a number bids immediately, Jim Baum, whose bid I accepted, was not only reasonable cost wise, but the only one who asked about the serviceability of the trailer being used to make the move. As it turns out, the seller of the houseboat wan't honest in describing the trailer or size of the load! It ended up Jim was only able to travel 45 to 50 miles an hour, and in spite of a flat tire and a spare tire in poor condition, he never got flustered or mean-spirited. He made the move and uShip people I would gladly do business with in the future! No questions asked! He picked up on time and delivered on time, in spite of some adverse circumstances! Jim Baum and uShip came through with flying colors!!!
