I used Uship to move my tractor from Arkansas to Virginia in 2006. When I had to relocate for another job in 2009, I again relied Uship to move the tractor from Virginia to Ohio based on my previous good experience. I plan to use Uship to move at least one of my cars. It's a little scary when trying Uship the first time since you really are experimenting with the service. But in the vein of ebay and amazon websites, this service is safe and reliable. It can make moving things around the US a very affordable option to selling them at a loss just to dispose of them. I wish I had Uship while I was in the military and I would not have left so many things behind move after move because of weight or cargo limitations. For shippers, have realistic expectations about timelines and expect drivers to be delayed by any number of highway conditions and you will avoid worry over pickup and delivery times/promises. If you have something that absolutely must be somewhere at a given time, state so in your solicitation for bids and make it a condition on the bidders. More often though, your shipment will be a backhaul move for a driver who is going to be in your area for a period of time and moving in the general direction of your intended recipient. Uship has work twice for me so far and I'd use it again as a first. choice.
