First attempt in shipping. Have an old work truck w/blown engine. Old friend had motor 1,000 mi away. What to do? uShip! Spent a good deal of time on the site to get up to speed. Am detail oriented so wrote every agreement down and confirmed it with broker before accepting bid. Broker met consignee's price, bid was accepted. Carrier believed p/u was accessible, made a telephone call 1/2 hr before p/u to shipper and believed he's been misinformed. Broker sent another carrier who found p/u site entirely acceptable. Broker held to original bid. Consignee picked up shipment at final storage facility personally.
