I was shipping odd pieces of gymnastics equipment, which the large shipping companies charge an arm and a leg for, not to mention, they frown on residential pick up. I got several bids, I got to read feedback from prior transactions, and picked a great shipper. He was reasonable, the booking fee was fair, and I got my stuff much faster than I expected.
I will use daveshippstransport again. David was very professional and maintained excellent communication.
I will definately use uship again, for local and cross country. I have already recommended it to three other people, and I only got my shipment today!
