We had to move a one bedroom apartment from Miami to DC. Traditional shippers were quoting thousands of dollars based on $2.50 per mile for 1,000 miles. We looked at do-it-yourself with uHaul and Budget. We shipped some stuff via U.S. mail. uShip is the BEST OPTION. Dependable Movers had room on their truck; they were going from Ft. Lauderdale to DC anyway. They made some extra cash with their unused capacity. We saved a ton of money. Everybody was happy. uShip is a great concept and well executed. I'd like to buy stock in uShip. I'm sure eBay or Google will buy them out soon. This is one of the most intelligent uses of the Internet yet devised. MBA programs should study this business model.
