Unfortunately, online fraud does exist, and the transportation and moving industries are not immune. This considered, choose your Service Provider carefully. While uShip provides useful tools such as government compliance data, carrier profiles, past reviews and feedback scores (similar to eBay), you should employ the same level of due diligence as you would when selecting a Service Provider from another venue, such as the Yellow Pages or Craigslist. Use common sense, and if something doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t. Ask questions. Get any agreements in writing. Review carrier credentials, and always pay safely.
