One of the best steps you can take in deciding whether to hire a moving company like uShip is to learn about the experiences of other customers who have hired them. Today, online reviews make finding those firsthand experiences easy.
Before we get into how to use this information in your decision making process, let’s look at where you can find or leave uShip reviews online. Below is just a sampling of the many places you will find the comments of previous customers for this company.
This is a specialized review site for the auto transport industry which makes it easy for you to compare the reviews on similar companies. Its limitation when it comes to uShip reviews is, of course, the fact that it only has reviews from those who have used uShip to deliver vehicles.
This is one of the most well-known business review sites online. You can leave your comments and star rating for almost any type of business here. In addition to the written review and star rating, you also can mark reviews as ‘useful’ giving other readers a heads-up on which reviews provide the best information. You can also see info on the reviewer related to whether or not they are a frequent poster of reviews on Yelp or just occasional visitors to the site.
uShip has a page on its own website that is committed to reviews from its customers. These reviews provide some valuable information. In addition to the customers’ comments and star rating, each one has a photo of the items shipped, the number of miles required for the shipment, the number of bids that came in on that shipment request, the dollar amount paid by the customer and the date of the booking. “We are a feedback driven site,” says Alan LaFrance, SEO specialist at uShip. “And these reviews are vital for service providers to succeed on uShip.”
The Better Business Bureau is always a good choice when looking to avoid problem companies. If serious concerns about business practices arise, this is where many people go to report them. uShip has been a member of the BBB since 2005 and currently carriers an A+ rating, the highest rating available.
On this review site, when you search for a particular company, you are shown a page that provides you with a summary of the number of reviews posted and their average rating. Below that you can see the actual individual reviews. On the page you will also see the five top-rated companies for that business category on their site for easy comparison.
If you are looking for the site with the highest volume of reviews for uShip, you should take a look at TrustPilot. This site has over five thousand reviews on uShip. It is also a site that prides itself on providing a review service that weeds out fabricated reviews.
With any company there will be instances where a customer is unsatisfied with the service they received. Too often, it is the negative experiences that people are most likely to communicate. Always look for a high volume of reviews to get the best total picture of a company’s record. And remember to leave reviews yourself, both positive and negative, to help others make their decisions in the future.
