J Navarro Logistics saved the day! I needed to ship my valuable violoncello back to the US from Mexico. Until I learned about UShip, I thought I was going to have to make a personal trip by car or air in order to get the cello to my luthier in California. Thank goodness for Juan Alberto Navarro. He came to my home in Morelia, Mexico, and spent nearly an hour with me reviewing the proper care and handling of the instrument and helping me complete paperwork for US Customs and insurance. He handled the instrument with kid gloves and accompanied it personally across the border at Laredo, where he turned it over to FedEx. It was delivered on time and in perfect condition. Not only did I not have to travel back to the US, but I could relax knowing my beloved cello was in good hands. And, I saved money. I would certainly use UShip and JNavarro again, and highly recommend this service without reservation. J. McKnight, Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico
