Through the miracles of the internet, I bought a great 200 year old bed from a fabulous antique shop in Covesville, Va. The only problem is that I live in rural north central Wisconsin and had no idea how I was going to get the bed home. Then a friend told me about U-Ship.
Although my first winning bidder turned out to be a toad - not a prince charming in disguise - (he didn't show up and I cancelled the deal), the second winning bidder was more than a prince. He was the King! Fantastic!
He actually lived part time in the tiny, tiny town where the antique shop was found and happened to be coming to visit his parents who lived - drum roll - in Wisconsin! Just an hour from me!!! He took care of that antique as if it were his own and dropped it at my doorstep! All for hundreds of dollars less than a regular shipper would have charged.
Thank you so much. You have to be respondible and do your homework with the shippers. Check references and ask questions about insurance. I am so delighted with Uship and especially with my shipper. I would definitely recommend and use again.
