Do you really want me to go over all that yet again? I'd rather be pecked to death by a duck! Like I said, it started out one way but, fortunately for me, ended on a better note. So, as for all of the background allow me to say only "blah, blah, blah" (you've heard it all before!) and bringing things up to speed, this shipper had to deal with some dreadful weather and one difficult personality on the pick up side of the equation. But he just performed with tremendous aplomb in spite of the obstacles. I'm very glad that he picked up my post. U-Ship is really an excellent option. On balance - I'm very happy (again) with the results. Remember I'd mentioned an old account with one shipment from Florida on it, but I could not remember my password info and so set up this account for this shipment. So, two times out of two, the merchandise arrived in perfect condition. Thank you.
