I needed to get my cat from Arizona to north Texas. I stumbled across uShip.
I lucked out to find a great deal leaving the next day, so in less than a week and a half, my kitty is now happily living in my apartment with me.
I saved a little bit of money from shipping her freight on an airline (let alone not making her go through that axperience) and a LOT of time and money from having to drive or fly back to get her!
I've been telling everyone I talk to about this site and how wonderful it is. Thanks!
