My wife and I raise and race thoroughbreds.We had found a filly in Magnolia , KY that we wanted to purchase. I had to take into consideration how much it would cost to bring her up to Nebraska. I decided to try U Ship as I had had some positive experiences in the past with them. I used the U Ship service to move all my families belongings from Florida to Nebraska 5 years ago. I put my add on U Ship and had bids right away. I knew I could drive down to KY and bring the filly back myself for around $800. I was willing to pay up to $1000. Well, Kevin was heading up this way anyway and I was lucky because I had a flexible schedule. I received a bid for $600 from Kevin. I was a little worried as I wondered if the cut rate would mean cut service... It did not ! He arrived on time and kept us updated all the way. He even made it through a thunderstorm and tornado watch. He has nice equipment and he was friendly and the filly looked awesome for what she had been through. You could tell she was well taken care of. What a service U Ship is!! I recommend them and Kevin to anyone !! Sincerely, Mike and Laurie.. Nebraska
