I have used uShip a few times and have been very happy with the great quotes and service providers that I have hired. I ship paintings, which need special attention, but have always paid great prices. Saved hundreds of dollars.
I was shipping a 6' x 6' painting I created. Obviously, I was apprehensive and meticulous about who I selected. Based on positive feedback, I chose Lowell and Cary, aka "lakerats." The price was unbeatable and they helped load it onto the truck and move it into my apartment. I would definitely recommend using them.
