I see all these complaints. Your right.
Uship makes it very easy for scammers, thieves and thugs to damage, abandon and steal you property. All while you are paying them to do it. But you did too. Did you pick the lowest price.
I'll bet 80% of you did. Uship has a good idea, but they need to make changes. Uship needs to make sure that all that have profiles on their site are legal and insured transporters. I am a legal and insured transporter.
From what I have seen I think 80% of the people that have profiles on Uship (as a transporter) are not legal transporters. Chances are, if you pick the lowest price that transporter is not legal. I can't compete with them. I pay $5000.00 a year to insure one pickup.
It's up to you to check them out. Everyone wants to save money. How much money did it save you? Look in the mirror people.
Put some of the blame on yourself. We live in a society now where everyone wants the other person to protect us. It doesn't work that way and never will. If you need something transported.
Do your homework. At a min. a legal transporter need USDOT numbers, MC numbers (if crossing state lines) and commercial insurance. Thats not that much to check out.
Call the insurance agent. Go online and check the DOT and NC numbers. Make sure all these things belong to the person your dealing with. These people are using numbers off of any truck going down the road.
I have given you some of the things you need to know. Use them to protect yourself. Nobody's going to do it for you. Most of us legal transporter's have websites.
Look us up.
It will be cheaper in the long run. Happy shipping to all of you.
