Before you hire a single service provider using uShip.com, keep in mind that they do NOT verify any information provided by its users. This means that using UShip you could actually hire a person who does not have insurance or a valid drivers license.
Before hiring a person or company, ask them to provide you the following information AND then verify this information is truthful and accurate.:
1. Ask for their 'Federal ID Number'; and
2. Ask for their 'State Registry Number'; and
3. Ask for their 'Commercial Drivers License' (CDL); and
4. Ask for a copy of their current 'business insurance policy'.
Contact the Better Business Bureau (http://www.bbb.org/) to find out if anyone has filed a complaint against them.
