Here's the story - I just got divorced and moved to Florida.  My ex was responsible for shipping my things and - what a surprise - he left out my favorite piece of furniture.  It was a mid-century modern credenza that I really loved and it looked great with my dining room set.  Well, rather than fight that battle, I decided to find a replacement piece and shopped Ebay until I found the right one.  I had carefully chosen one which would be in the same state, so shipping costs would be reasonable.  Well, I bid and won; however I didn't realize that the seller wanted $290 to ship it to me.  I thought "no problem - I will rent a van and go get it myself."  Then I had the horrible realization that I have no friends or family here to jump in a van and help me pick up this 6 foot long, extremely heavy piece of furniture.  What could I possibly do?  I did a Google search for "furniture shipping" and found Uship.  It was easy to put in my requirements and the next morning I had three bids, all within a very reasonable price range.  I read the feedback on all and chose one (they all seemed like good choices).  Bobby8591 did a great job for me.  I confirmed through the "Ask Question" feature with him that he was able to pick up my item within the seller's time frame.  I gave him the seller's contact info and took it from there.  What a relief to find Uship and Bobby8591!  Thanks to you both, I now have a new favorite piece of furniture!
