I purchased a sailboat located in the Kansas City area and needed it shipped to South Florida. My friend had used uShip for the same type of delivery and suggested I check it out. Within a few hours of the time I created my bid, I received three offers. The offers came to my cell phone while I was running errands and I was able to make a decision very easily. Using PayPal made it even easier to complete the deal from my computer. Compared to taking off work, renting a truck with a hitch and driving back to Florida, I know I saved a ton with uShip. Truck rental alone was $100 more than I paid to use uShip. No question I would use uShip again if I had to transport something a long distance. Easy to set up a bid and easy to complete the transaction and I never left home!
