Recently I had my mare shipped back from NC to IL and used a shipper,not thru Uship, that took my mare on what was the worst horse ownership nightmare I could have imagnied. I was promise a direct route, and even though the hauling rig had a gps tracking device for me to watch online, soon learned it meant nothing while I watched my mare travel from NC to KY back to the NY coast then to MI then to where she is now in IL, adding 1300 miles to her already 1100 mile haul. She arrived some 44 hours later, stiff, sore, sick and dehydrated to the point she required fulids in the days following her arrival in IL. Needless to say, hauling her yet again, for any distance, was the very last thing I wanted to do. So, hesitantly, I went to my Uship account, (where I posted the other times I had my mare hauled), and began sorting through bids. I emailed a few of them a couple different times, and while all I chatted with impressed me to no end, I chose Brian Featheringill to haul my mare another 2 1/2 hours, 2 months after the disaster that was hauling her back from NC. I cannot say enough about this service, nor about Mr. Featheringill. The feedback on Uship gives the honest truth in real life experiences and is second to none. I will be using Brian from now on, though should other shipping needs arise, Uship is my first stop without a doubt! Thank you so so much for your's truly second to none!!
