UShip is an excellent way to move items. This is the third time I have used their service. This last shipment had special meaning as it was my Mother's specialty fabric. She was an International Artist and her wish was to have her fabric sent to a monastery in MA upon her death. She passed away in Sep 2010. I used UShip to locate a company to ship this special shipment. The driver arrived on the scheduled day and delivered the fabric on the requested day, although he could have arrived earlier. The family wanted the fabric to arrive on my Mother's birthday which was two days later than the pick-up date. The monastery of cloistered nuns use the fabric to sew vestments and altar cloths. In addition, the fabric will be used to make clothes for poor, disadvantaged children in the community. The head seamstress was overwhelmed with the quantity of fabric and pleased with the donation for their vocation. The driver respected the arrival of the shipment during daylight hours to accomodate the nuns privacy. The driver was courteous and hardworking. He took special care of loading and unloading the fabric. I also felt secure paying the driver upfront in cash as I could not be on the other end of delivery. I will use this company on future shipments. As I am a repeat customer of UShip, I will continue to use their service. In the 3 shipments, I have never had a problem. They also accomodate unusual items for shipment. My first shipment was my new car. The second was a new washer and dryer and the third was the fabric. All items arrived safely at their destination. The drivers arrive on time and deliver as promised.
