This was a very heavy table that I purchased on Ebay, with a shipping weight of 290 pounds. The Ebayer seller was going to charge a rate that was almost double what I paid via U-ship. I was alittle leary in using the service at first, but it was an extremely smooth transaction, with great communication from the shipper, and the item arriving on time and in perfect condition. I could not be happier with the transsaction. I look forward to using U-ship again !!
