This was my first time using UShip. What a great problem solver it was. I had to clean out my parents house and ship the contents to my home. I estimated 20 or so boxes at 20-30 lbs ea. I had a very small window of time that this had to happen. At first, I had accepted a very good bid from a shipper and set up the dates. Unfortunately, that shipper called 3 days before the deadline and informed me that he had to pick up the next day or 2 weeks later. I could not do either and got very nervous being stuck like that. I had to reactivate a second bid that I originally rejected. Fortunately, they responded immediately. Dabent Transport gave me a good price for approx. 600 lbs. Ultimately, I ended up with 36 boxes at almost double the weight. They handled the change smoothly. They simply readjusted the cost, checked it out with me first and made delivery as planned. What a relief. Ultimately, the shipment cost me only 1/2 as much as any moving company or renting a Uhaul or similar vehicle. You guys saved my butt and I will use and reccommend you to anyone who needs to ship. Sincerely, Paul Pettitt
