My first try at uship started promising, I found a shipper that seemed perfect, unfortunaley our dates were incompatible. The came a bevy of shippers that seemingly had no concept of what a 450 lbs. pet pig was able to do... I had guys wanting to drive it in the back of a pick-up truck for 1100 miles to in their Winnebago, which clearly would've been a "reliced" Winnebago. Just a I was about to decide I would just rent a cargo van and deal with i myself I got contacted by Barbara from White Feather Junction and she clearly knew what she was talking about. Our dates lined up and I accepted her bid. Even though she is new to uship she offered references, and after I accepted her bid she came by to check out the loading area, and so I could meet her. She stayed in contact and communicated well what was needed to make the transport of my pig painless. I got all the supplies and on pick-up day loading her was very simple, took about 10 minutes. Barabara, kept me updated while on the road and dropped Lucy off the next evening in Malibu. I could not have had a better experience and highly recommend her.
