Using uShip is extremely easy and straight forward. I was able to list my shipment and accept a bid from a provider within a day of listing. Unfortunately, shortly after picking up my ATV, the provider was in a traffic accident and unable to continue with the shipment. After that I re-listed accepted bids and and subsequently canceled with two other providers that were either non-responsive after being the successful bidder or just simply could not deliver on their promises. The fourth time was definitely a charm because I accepted a bide from Dream Ride Transport (dreamridertransport) who were all that they claimed to be. Even though I had lost 3 weeks with other providers, Dream Ride came through with flying colors and I received my ATV in great shape and at exactly the promised time. I will definitely use uShip again but there were a couple of lessons learned: 1. Make sure that the provider that you are booking with is one that runs their own vehicles and is not just a broker who will "try" to find a truck for you after you accept their bid. 2. Communicate lots before accepting a providers bid so that you get a good sense of comfort for their responsiveness and their ability to deliver on their promises.
