This is the first time I have used U ship. I think it is an excellent idea to help shippers and mover find each other and to bid on the job. However I found scheduling pick up and delivery a nightmare and wasted hours and hours on this due to Uships policy of not letting customers talk to shippers. To me pick up and deliver times are as important as shipping price. I think either the website needs to be changed so that potential delivery and pick up dates can be 'discussed'( put a calendar on where customer can say dates they can and can't do) or U ship needs to change their payment structure eg charging members a monthly fee or something. I nearly abandoned the job due to the difficulty of scheduling.
