This was my first time getting something as huge as a display cabinet listed on eBay shipped to me. Would have been too much of a hassle, not to mention tremendous time, energy and fuel spent on a drive from Dallas, TX to Knoxville, TN and back. Searched online for shipping options, and somehow came across UShip. I linked UShip to my eBay account, and started accepting bids. Bids started coming in, some too high for my budget, but others were reasonable. Ended up picking Triple S because they offerred packaging and insurance at a reasonable price. Overall, took about a week from winning item to getting it in my hands. Item picked up 2 days after auction ended, but shipper did not notify me of pick up. I had to make numerous calls to the seller and shipper several times during this transaction just to be aware of what's going on. Eventually, was simply glad that my cabinet arrived. Upon closer examination after shipper had left, minor damage was found on cabinet. But overall, for the price I paid, I think service was at least acceptable. More proactive communication on the part of Triple S would have been deeply appreciated, but alas did not happen. Hope they do better next time with other customers. Depending on when I buy such a large item again, I might try UShip again.
