I sold my cherished curved glass curio on Ebay. My buyer was is Canada and I live in Texas! What a challange; not only did I have to find a way to ship, there was also an issue with dealing with customs. I called UPS and FedEx ... well, their rates were enormous and I would have to creat the cabinet and bring it to them. My buyer would also have to pick it up at a local site. Impossible! As I was surfing the web, I found UShip. I had never heard of it, but posted my curio as needing to be shipped. Jackie made a bid. I was scared! What if I sent my money and I never saw the cabinet again? Jackie started corresponding with me concerning the packing and what was needed. I realized instantly that this person knew what they were doing! Once Jackie arrived, all of my fears disappeared, What a lovely woman! YES a woman! I can only describe her as the best shipper I have ever had. We moved our entire household 18 times over a period of 36 years and it was a nightmare every one of the 18 times (which is why I was so reluctant)! Any time I have something to ship, I will be calling on Jackie. Here is her info: Service Provider: jdempere (3425+ positive feedback) Thank you USHIP!!!
