    The 10-episode series may not win any major awards, but it's well made and fun to watch.

    Though the fast paced editing scheme manages to keep the point and click bidding from feeling as droll as Internet auctions are in real life, the relentlessly quick hits of dialog and action make the proceedings feel like a teaser rather than the actual program.

    For now, Shipping Wars is mostly about the perfectly packed trunk and the ecstasy of having not an inch to spare.

    I can not believe they stoop to make a show about this.

    We actually had the opportunity of using uship.com when our grandmother passed away
    and needed to have our 5th generation hutch shipped across the country. We had heard great reviews about the uship as a viable solution for shipping. As it turned out, our truck driver was Roy Garber.

    First off the hutch was to be deliver Monday morning. He ended up showing at our place late Wednesday night. He started off by whining and complaining about all the delays he had encountered on our shipment. When he finally took a break from taking about all the hardships he had encountered, he did provide as little as possible help getting the unit off his unit. He was not at all interested in helping us bring the antique hutch in our house unless we 'compensated him' as he put it. When we looked over the hutch we notice a quite a few scratch and a couple of large dings on of the side and the front of the hutch. He claimed that the hutch 'was like that when he picked it up'. Funny this wasn't noted in the bill of lading.

    The next thing is he tried to negotiate to have us pay more for shipping than his original bid. He said that if he had known it was going to be 'that much hassle' that he would of bidd for more. When we ask about the penalty for being over 2 1/2 days late on our delivery, he said that he could knock 'a couple of hundred bucks off the bid price if we promised to give a favorable bid on uship in order to give him a favorable review. Then when this was all done he stood there with his hand out expecting a tip. He said 'wll you would tip the pizza delivery man wouldn't you'

    So when Roy Garber says 'you get what you far for' he is speaking from experience. Remember this and stick to the professionals and call ShipAlmostAnything.com

    Shows just how badly this country is going to hell. Thats it! Let the whole world into our world of transportation without any regulations or licensing. Sick of this! For better service without getting ripped off by Us**p, I highly recommend everyone use ShipAlmostAnything.com instead. At least they wont hit you with hidden fees Expand
