I had to move my home from NY to Fla. I contacted large shippers and found their rates to be very high. So I started to investigate other possibilities to find shippers. I stumbled onto USHIP by accident in a web search and thought I would give it a try. I listed what I needed to move and received bids from several shippers. I picked my shipper and confirmed my bid. We agreed on a price and time and I was all set for my move. Of course my decision to ship this way was met with a little skepticism from my family and friends. They were concerned that I was being ripped off. They wanted to know who were these people and where were they from. I was not concerned at all I had bids from large well known shippers as well as smaller shippers I hadn't heard of before. So I felt confident that USHIP was legitmate and the shippers had as much to lose as I did. Because if they didn't hold up their end of the deal they would receive very bad reviews and would have plenty of trouble with their business. Well as you have guessed I did get to say I told you so to the skeptics. My shipper was wonderful (Ted) and everything went smoothly between us. He was even able to accomodate a delay that was not anticipated. I would highly recommend this site for finding a shipper, I was able to save a substantial amount of money and feel like I met a new friend in my shipper. Pat C Melbourne, Fla
