I started not to share my story, but then I said, why not. I'm almost ashamed to say that the Bob Timberlake Bed I had shipped I've wanted for 17 years -- no joke, literally 17 years. Seventeen years ago it wasn't quite as expensive, but it now retails for over $3,300. I saw it on ebay for $499 in Ohio, for local pickup only. I'm in Georgia. I talked with the seller and he was willng to work with me on shipping, so he held it until I could make arrangements. I searched the Internet and called several places and got quotes of anywhere from $550 to over $800 for shipping. I just knew there had to be some other resource of getting my bed for what I thought was a fair shipping price of no more than $300. So I informed the seller to hold on, that I'm still looking, we're going to do this. So I kept searching and found uShip. I listed my shipment and immediately got a couple bids. I was amazed. It was so simple. I communicated with a couple of the service providers that made bids and then decided on one and accepted the bid. My bed was picked up the next day and then delivered the next day. Three days, total, for this transaction -- you can't beat that. My service provider was a retired couple. They were very nice, kept in touch with me, and were very accommodating. They even helped carry my bed to my bedroom on the 3rd floor of my townhouse. I feel so happy and blessed to get the bed that I've desired for so long, and it was without a doubt made possible by using uShip. I would definitely use uShip again and would recommend it to anyone who needs this type of service. Thank you very much!!! Oh, and I saved about $300 to $500 using uShip. That's a lot of savings.
