PRACTICE SMART SHIPPING
While uShip is one of the safest ways to find shipping services online, one can never be too careful. Following these few basic guidelines will help ensure a smooth and safe shipping experience.
CHOOSING YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER
To help you make a wise, informed decision, we’ve created a public profile for each registered provider on uShip. It contains experience, customer reviews, ratings, full service history, pictures, and more. We recommend spending a few minutes looking over this information before committing to a provider you’re considering.
GET IT IN WRITING
After booking a shipment with a provider, you should outline the details of your agreement, and both sign it. This can come in very handy in case of any sort of dispute.
uShip Payments, major credit cards, and third-party payment systems such as PayPal are the safest ways to pay. uShip highly recommends—in fact, it’s against our policy—to use instant cash transfer systems like Western Union that don’t provide recourse in the case of a dispute or fraud.
To sum up: Ask questions, get it in writing, check credentials, pay safely, and always go with your gut. If something doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t.
