The uShip family was deeply saddened to hear of Roy Garber’s passing on January 17.
We’ve known Roy a long time, nearly 5 years since he joined uShip as a service provider in February 2009. In 2011, he was cast for Shipping Wars and in 2012, as the show premiered, Roy’s n0-BS attitude and tough-as-nails work ethic was seen by millions across America and eventually around the world as Shipping Wars became syndicated.
Roy was also a spokesperson for uShip. We had the pleasure of his frequent visits in our office. Roy’s riveting stories of wrestling with sharks, deep knowledge of how to read a ‘gator coming on shore, and knowledge of how to fix pretty much anything kept his audience glued.
We even made a series of videos with Roy to promote uShip, finding him in unexpected activities like providing empathetic customer service to a wayward fellow service provider and doing dishes in the uShip kitchen with Muffy, his cat.
As we remember Roy Garber, enjoy watching him in action at uShip:
