We bought a very heavy oak dining table on ebay. The deal was a "pick up only" and the seller was based some 70 miles away from our place. We looked into renting a van which would have cost at least £38 plus diesel, plus time and effort.
So, within three days of putting up our shipment request we had plenty of quotes and ended up paying £37.80 in total (including the uShip fee) which saved us fuel costs, time, effort, and trouble.
The service provider was oldbeany/TFS Transport and he did an amazing job (please see our review - the first for him)! We could not fault him at all.
So, uShip is amazing - based on our first experience with this website (and the 5% commission is much better than the competition ;-) ).
We will therefore definitely use uShip again as it is an excellent concept/website/service.
We hope you will have a similar experience.
All the best, Rosie & Simon
