We are a small manufacturer and distributor of Point of Purchase Displays located in the Sullivan County Catskills of New York. We have limited resources here and have all our materials and supplies "imported" from the New York City Metro area. We have been diligently and unsuccessfully searching for a local trucking company for several years. On my last Google search for "local trucking companies 12776", the uShip web site appeared. In total desperation, I entered the requested information and posted my shipment. At that time we were also in the process of making arrangements to rent a truck and planning to lose a day of production. WOULD YOU BELIEVE!!! By the next morning, within 18 hours of posting, the questions from shippers started coming in. Before 20 hours from posting expired we had two bids, one at my target price which was immediately accepted. The uBid shipper that handled our shipment was nothing short of extraordinary. He picked up and delivered 9 pallets, 255 new wire newspaper distribution racks, in perfect condition, within a few hours. We actually had our goods in hand WITHIN 24 HOURS OF POSTING and saved over 75% of the regional trucking companies quotes! We will use the services of uShip for every shipping requirement in the future. We will strongly recommend the services of uShip to all our contacts, vendors, and suppliers.
