I ordered a custom landscape trailer to be built from a manufacturer in Texas. I am currently working in Iraq and could not pick the trailer up and transport it back to my home in South Carolina. The trailer manufacturer recommended uShip for the delivery. I took the advice and within hours I received several good offers making it somewhat difficult to pick one transporter. When I made my selection it was based on the following factors. The transporter provided license and insurance information, had all positive feedbacks from previous clients, provided photos of his newer model truck and his payment terms were client friendly. Most transporters require 50% at pickup and balance due at delivery. With me being out of the country my wife was handling the transport transaction. Having a full time job with an inflexible schedule did not leave her with a lot of options to make arrangements for payment at the point of pick up where she could not be: make a separate trip to the bank for a cashiers check for payment at delivery. The transporter I selected required only one payment (at point of delivery) with multiple payment form options. The transporter was professional, delivered ahead of schedule and the condition of the trailer upon delivery was perfect. This was my first experience utilizing this type of service and uShip and the transporter made it pleasant and hassle free. I will recommend uShip to everyone I know needing transport service. Thank you uShip for the professional service you provided. Kevin South Carolina
