U-Ship / Fraud and cheating
You should know that uship IS an electronic broker that is not a customer service oriented company. They do not qualify their Transportation Service Providers. Therefore the following facts are true: Many of the so called trucking firms are not DOT legal. Many of the same have NO Cargo coverage. when any Service provider says, "I have one million dollars coverage" You must ask what kind of coverage??
The million dollars is for liability. That is not CARGO Insurance. Always ask for the TSP's Insurance agent and call his agent and request a certificate of insurance. The lowest Bidders usually Cancel or just don't show, worse they are usually some guy or gal with a pick up truck and a light trailer and seldom posses a Commercial Drivers License [CDL].
The fee you pay to UShip ALL goes to them NOT the service provider. Their shipping estimate is bogus and is based on average of low bidders. NOT on overall bids. If you rely on it, this will put you in the "danger zone" everytime.
The bottom line is if you want to be safe on UShip only use your credit card so that you have recourse. Don't book until you have read the feed back on your TSP thoroughly and Verify their insurance.
Last, don't choose the lowest bidders, Automobile trucking has high operating cost and many of our rigs run over $200, 000 dollars each and they get 5 to 7 mpg average. So if for example you get a bid of $1000 to truck your Mustang across the country [2800 miles] You can bet that you will wait forever only to get canceled or your car not be insured. We
have been trucking for 15 years incident free and you will find us to be amongst the highest bidders with the best of feedbacks on uship.Mazzalupo Carriers our site is www.mazzalupocarriers.
