This was a great experience. I started out looking to adopt a horse that needed a good home on Petfinder.com. After a lot of research, I found the one I wanted, but she was hours away. I starting planning a trip to go get her, but I didn't have a trailer. With the cost of taking off work, paying for gas, a hotel, trailer rental, and not to mention the 10+ hours round trip on the road, it seemed daunting. As I was searching online for trailer rentals, an ad for Uship appeared, and I clicked on it around 8pm on Monday. I received a bid by 10pm, along with 2 or 3 more bids by 10am the next morning. I accepted a bid from Total Equine by midday, and received emailed instructions immediately. I called the driver, and he was very kind and courteous. He ALWAYS answered the phone when I called. I LOVE that! He arranged his schedule to meet my needs and the schedule of the sender. He picked her up a 6am on Wednesday in San Antonio. He made a couple of stops, let the horses out to walk around a bit, and fed/watered them. I called to check on her a couple of times, he was always courteous and detailed. My mare arrived around 6pm in Fort Worth. This whole experience was amazing. It saved me so much time and money, and best of all, he took great care of her. Thank you Kevin! You're awesome.... I will definately use Uship again. Now I can look in other cities to shop for horses, and not be limited to my town/state.
