My wife and I gave our beautiful Baldwin upright piano to our two young grandchildren. The only problem: the piano is EXTREMELY heavy, making it impossible to move it some 25 miles to my son's house. I needed professional help. So, first I tried checking with local movers, but they were either not interested in such a short, "small" move, or their costs were prohibitive. After two weeks of chasing leads, blindly calling yellow page listings, and trying to assemble a moving team, I turned to the Internet and started over. U Ship looked the most promising. So, I followed the web page instructions, placed and add on U Ship,and had a winning bid from 1stclass4less within the hour. I contacted the owner, Denes, who was out of state, and discussed the details. Throughout the move Denes stayed in contact and made sure everything went smoothly and as planned. The driver, Tim, arrived on time and worked non-stop to execute the move. Tim is a credit to the company and the move could not have been smother. After the move, Denes call again to ensure the move met my expectations -- it did! U Ship is a fantastic site; their on-site tools helped nail down how I wanted to solicit a bid and how to price the service. The results were great: I got my price (saving $$$) and the winning mover, 1stClass4Less, was great. I bookmarked U SHip and I am passing the word to family and friends: use U Ship and use 1stClass4Less! -- They earned my trust.
