We worried about finding a way to ship 90 small boxes from one residence to another at a reasonable price, but uShip made the experience very fast and easy. Compared to what it would have cost to ship these with a major carrier -- or renting a truck and travelling across country ourselves! -- the bids we got were very reasonable. The uShip system was unusually helpful in sharing information about our shipment (for example, posting photos) and its tools for reviewing bids and communicating with bidders about whether they could, etc. were invaluable. Obviously, uShip is used by quite a few people too, since bids came in quickly, so it was really one-stop shopping and competitive at that. Finally, integrating "feedback" into bidder information made us feel comfortable about accepting a bid. uShip made it easy for people like us, who weren't professional shippers, to get just a small, basic job done. I would definitely recommend uShip to anyone!
