I shipped my 4 year old Spotted Draft Horse and a 4 wheeled carriage from Vermont to my winter home in Florida.  I searched Uship for a carrier who would ship them safely and within a certain time frame.  Tender Touch Transport were the very first bidders.  I was afraid to accept the first bid since I had no reference point or referral source for them. ; The feedback from other people who had shipped horses with them was positive.  They were persistent and answered my questions patiently, as though they knew my reservations about hiring a stranger with such precious cargo.  Through the question-answer period, I felt more and more at ease with their knowledge of horse shipping and of horses in general.  When I decided upon them and Duke and carriage were shipped and arrived safely, I felt as though we had known eachother for a long time. ; Thanks, Uship for introducing me to Tony and Candy!
