Whether you're bringing your cattle to market, have already sold your livestock or need assistance transporting your animals to a show, uShip can help you find livestock shipping services quickly and cheaply. There are a few things you need to keep in mind when choosing a livestock transport company through uShip; be sure to detail the exact number, size and weight of your animals so that transporters can give you an accurate quote and determine if their trailers meet your needs. You’ll also need to indicate any special accommodations your animals will need during the journey. Such as a separate stall or regularly scheduled stops.
You should review each transporter's profile to see past shipments and read through customer reviews. Many livestock haulers will also post photos or videos of their trailer equipment. If a transporter does not provide any clear, visible information about their equipment be sure to ask them about it in the bid details. You may also want to inquire about each transporter’s experience with trailering animals. Upon arrival, do a brief visual inspection of the transporter’s trailer. Trailers will need to be clean, free of jagged edges and ideally have grooves in the floor for improved traction.
