I had a 5 year old Thoroughbred gelding I needed shipped to Pennsylvania for the summer because I have an internship out there for the summer and he is going with me. The site was great to navigate and I always knew when a new bidder had offered to take him for me. The only concern I have is that it was not made very clear I would have to pay for part of the shipment once I accepted a bid, it was not really a problem, just caught me by surprise. It probably would not be a bad idea to make it a little more clear to people they have to pay a certain amount of money once they accept a bid. The service provider I accepted was Valentine Transport and they were FANTASTIC!! Great communication and they took perfect care of my horse. I think this site gave me an easier way of investigating into the shipping companies a little more and made the choice much easier and less stressful because I had an idea of what kind of transportation he would be getting from the pictures, website addresses, and descriptions given on the site. I will definitely be using uShip again and would definitely recommend this for anyone who needs to get something large (like a horse) shipped anywhere!
