I was well warned about UShip and their business practice....but did not listen. NEVER again.
I've read many reviews on how they give you a quote and when they have your possessions, jack up the price. Foolishly, I called UShip and address my concern, and the rep said that it is because customers "add more iteams" after getting a quote and therefor had to pay more because their shipment weight more. Like a fool, I believed. So I called the manufacture of my couch to get exact dimension and weight so I would not run into price jacking.
So they took my couch and quoted me for $1100.....a week later, they called and said the price was an estimate and now the real price was $400 more!?! I said to give me back my couch because I was aware of how they did business, and I was put on hold and a few minutes later, they came back saying best they could do was $1140. I bit my tongue and accepted my stupidity for not believing the reviews. Uship....how can you charge me more when I did not add even an ounce more to what I originally quoted.
And how did you suddenly charge $400 more than quoted and drop down to $40??? Surely it is NOT out of the kindness of your heart!!!!
