I found a great deal on a garden tiller attachment for my mower while surfing the web one day. The only problem was it was over 700 miles away. I had seen the uShip logo on a couple of other websites so I decided to research it. Since the site was so well laid out and easy to use, I decided to give it a try (I had previously missed out on another great buy because I couldn't figure out how to get it home). I posted a shipment request and got my first bid that evening! I think what I was most impressed with was the quality of the haulers - everyone that contacted me seemed genuinely interested in getting my shipment to me as quickly as possible and at fair prices. The rating system and profile page were also helpful in researching haulers. I decided to hold out for a couple of days to see just how good it could get. I ended up getting a great deal from a hauler that had already planned on making that very same trip (which I think is the true value of uShip - the ability to line up shipments with haulers already making similar trips). In fact, his shipping quotes were so good that I bought two attachments from that store! I'm no longer leery of making out-of-state purchases because I know uShip is there to help me ship my items home. Needless to say, I'm a very satisfied user - Thanks uShip!
