I purchased a cargo truck from Government Liquidators. Needlesstosay, the suspense the Government keeps us in while they transact business at their own special pace, made it very difficult to pinpoint the shipping date. I listed my cargo truck for shippment with what I thought was conservative shipping dates. Those dates came and went without having my Government approval to pick up the vehicle. My Uship quotes began expiring as well. So, I waited several days and relisted only to have the new deadlines come and go with out my approval from the Government to pick up my cargo truck. Finaly, after several weeks of waiting and over a dozen expired quotes I was able to relist on Uship and was very happy to see that many of the same bidders stuck with me and requoted, many for the 3rd time. I got a bid that I was happy with and took the plunge and accepted it. Within a couple of minutes I was on the phone with the shipper making arrangements for the shipment. The shipper contacted the loading site and worked out a special deal to load my cargo despite the fact that the loader was planning on leaving early that day and push all loads off for a couple of more days. The shipper communicated to me what I could expect to happen and my cargo truck arrived right on time. I had a great experience with my first time using Uship. I look forward to booking all my shipping through Uship.
