My first time on uShip and I'm very happy with how my experience turned out. I was shipping a Baldwin upright piano from Seattle to Los Angeles. It was my childhood piano and was still at my parents home, just sitting there unused. Now my daughter is taking piano lessons and I wanted to see if I could get my old piano to my place for less than it would cost to buy another one. It took a little while to get a bid I was happy to accept (the range of bids was from $1400 to $399), but I'm glad that I was able to do my research on comparable jobs and wait for the right bid to come in. $399 was a terrific price and I was weary about accepting such a low bid, but Mountain Transport had wonderful feedback. And it's true - they did a fantastic job. My piano got delivered today and, as I type this, my daughter is practicing on it!
