I found these great golf clubs on eBay. They are a BRAND NEW set of Wilson 1200 woods identical to the one's my father bought back in 1975. I had no way of shipping them to Australia (I moved to Australia from California last year)due to their size. I took a chance on uShip and within a day of listing I had an offer. Well, they arrived today..!!!! Without uShip, I know I would not have these clubs ...

I wasn't quite sure what to think at first. I have had terrible experiences shipping things in the past. I'm very pleased to say though that Uship is an excellent service.

I am not easy to please, and demand high quality ...

I had a preferred carrier in mind in Sydney and the bloke selling the car had his preferred carrier in mind in Brisbane.
