I stumbled onto Uship when trying to find a company to move two boats I purchased across the country. I wasn’t expecting too much from the service and was apprehensive at first but within short order I found I was receiving feed back on what I thought was an odd shipment. All of the people that submitted bids seemed credible and it didn’t take long for me to put a deal together and have my two boats moved. It took a bit to get use to the low word counts permitted in the descriptions even when leaving feed back I had to tailor my response down to 500 characters and that just wasn’t enough room to leave the positive comments I wanted to. As the site expands I know Canada plays a much smaller role in the marketplace but it would be nice if Canadians could have their quotes from Canadian companies handled in Canadian Dollars. This would make it easier for us up here to piece together deals as the exchange rates mean that both shipping companies and shippers have to research all of the exchange rates and conditions before accepting and deals. It adds a level of confusion and slows the process down. All in all though I was still very impressed with the service. I’ve already recommended the Uship site to others.
