I have moved more times than I would like to remember and it has always been a nightmare. We had been postponing shipping a priceless family piano for years (7 to be exact). We needed to move an antique piano from Oklahoma City, OK to Georgetown, TX. This piano was handmade by the Omish and was my husband's Grandmothers prized possession. Six months ago we got serious about relocating the piano. I had been shopping around to find a safe way to move this thing without breaking the bank. We had received quotes from various "big name" moverd between $800 to $1100. This was TOO pricey and the movers didn't speacialize in pianos. We didn't much about pianos, but we knew that you could mess them up pretty quick if you didn't handle them correctly. Financially, we felt our only option was to make the 12 hour drive on our own, rent a trailer and hire piano movers to pack/unpack the piano at each location. Thank GOD I found uShip and AAA Piano Services!! I posted an add Friday night. The next morning, I woke up to a bid 1/4 the price I had been seeing. Steve with AAA Piano was professional and responsive. We had our family heirloom delivered to our front door less than 72 hours after I posted my request. Our Aunt added a few unexpected pieces to the shipment when Steve arrived to p/u the piano in Oklahoma City. Steve made room for them and didn't charge us extra. AAA Piano is a classy establishment that you can trust with a tricky move. I would definately use uShip again and no one will ever move this piano other than AAA Piano Movers. Michelle Bynum
