Generally good. The problems I have had are systemic to this lowest price shipping model - shippers will accept a shipment in conjunction with others which makes the whole load economic. If one customer drops out then the shipper will often cancel the whole run meaning unbexpected delays or simply refuse to contact the customer any more. I have experienced both these problems. uShip and Shiply will refund thier booking fees, but the hassle caused by no-shows and let downs is not compensated for. I think that uShip should be much stricter with shippers over this and ban them if they do this. I would not now use any of these auction services for good which need to be delivered to a fixed schedule - it's just not worth the risk and worry.
