My co-author and I needed to ship 1,500 books from Colorado to our national book distributor in Ohio but wanted to save some money if possible (while still finding a top-notch shipping company to do the job). I found uShip on a Google Search and after investigating if this company would suit our needs, I posted the listing for our shipment. Within the hour I received an email from uShip acknowledging my listing and was asked if I needed any further assistance. That was very nice and appreciated as I was a first-time customer and this, to be honest, was all a new experience for me. Soon after posting my shipment needs I got a great quote from a company (48Freight) with a very nice ranking, really solid customer feedback, and after discussions with my co-author, we decided to ship with 48Freight and uShip. The shipping company and I exchanged emails, set up a precise pickup date and time, and the shipment was off to its destination. It easily arrived within the specified and promised date of delivery. This was a great first experience -- using uShip -- and a nice resource to have for future shipments. My co-author and I couldn't be happier with the entire transaction. What was I shipping: 1,500 books on 1 pallet. Why you were shipping your item: To get our books to our national distributor. Your experience using the uShip site: Easy to navigate; excellent. How much you saved using uShip: Approximately $200-$300 USD. Would you use uShip again? Most definitely.
