This is the first time I used Uship. I need to ship a bunk bed, a day bed, a desk, chairs, sofa, and miscellaneous household goods. Most of these are over 10 years old so I do not worry about minor dents and scratches. I just want to have the goods out of the pickup house on time and arrive safely at the destination. Timeliness and affordability are important to me.
I was very concerned about the payment process. I thought that Uship is an escrow service but it ends up that I have to pay in full up front at pickup. So if anything goes wrong, I will be out of goods and money. However, Uship with the detailed information and open question/answer and feedback structure allow me to see how each shipment went in the view of the shipper and the provider. That gives me confident in the system and help me to select the provider who can best meet my need. I appreciate that on Uship website, I can view the story of each shipment and I appreciate that each shipper actually takes time to comment and let us know how the shipment goes.
The move works out very well and I get to know a bit more about the provider, Steve Schneider. Now I have more choices and flexibility in shipping goods. I will definitely use uship for my shipping needs in the future.
