I wanted to buy a Fridge on E-bay that was in Florida, and here I am in Oregon. The auction was for pick-up only. I needed to make sure I could afford to ship it before bidding. I contacted a shipper and the price was $850, almost three times what I was going to bid on the Fridge! Thankfully I found U-Ship and put it out to bid. The shipper that found me did it for $400, less than half the price of my first quote. 19Tbird64 was my shipper and they did a fabulous job. Once the auction ended, the seller had a tiny window when it could be picked up, due to a new fridge being delivered and them leaving town for a week. 19Tbird64 worked with the shipper and their schedule to arrange the picup time, etc., and communicated with me throughout. I got e-mails letting me know where they were as they crossed the country, and a phone call the day before delivery giving me the window of time when they'd be at my house. Overall everything went smoothly. Thanks to U-ship I've got my Antique Refridgerator and I stayed within budget. I'd definately use U-ship and 19TBird64 again!
