My original plan was to have 30 small to medium boxes shipped from Jersey City to Seattle, where I am relocating. Posting my shipment on Friday, receiving no bids on Saturday, I changed it Saturday night to: Jersey City to Newark. (I decided to ship via Amtrak Express from Newark Penn Station).
I received 3 bids and accepted the third. It helped that UShip showed the average bid for my type of shipment. My service provider, skibasprinter, responded immediately once I accepted the bid and answered the phone two more times when I had questions. I even had to change the pick up time by a day b/c a doctor's appointment left me too wiped out--and happily skibasprinter was able to reschedule.
I'm a DIY person, and would've rented a Uhaul van if that had been viable. Using Uship saved me that hassle and allowed me to give my business to an independent businessperson. The flexibility of Uship saved me $175 at least. Thank you UShip!
