Talk about Heaven on Earth. With U-ship I was able to arrange to have my small household with some unusual items (700cc motorcycle, porch swing, firepit, WOODPILE!) shipped 1800 miles from Minneapolis, MN to Portland, OR within just a few days, for $650-$1000 less than any of my other non-uShip options. (And the next cheapest option was doing it myself -- including gas & 3 motel nights & an awful, grueling drive. NOT a pretty thought.)
Getting my load entered into the system was a cinch, bidding and asking/answering questions was great, and Gene was ... absolutely perfect. Everything about working him went the best way possible.
I'll definitely use uShip again, and I can't possibly recommend Gene highly enough.
Thanks Gene, thanks uShip, and thanks DAVE of Arcata CA, for telling me about uShip in the first place!
