In the fall of 2006 my uncle called me to tell me that my grandmotther's piano had been in storage since she passed away three years ago. He told me he wanted me to have it. I was so excited; I remember sitting next to my grandmother when I was a girl as she played her piano. The question was, "how was I going to get it from Tennessee to Ohio? My uncle and I checked many moving companies; all of them were too expensive. Then one day while I was surfing the web I found this website. I decided to give it a try. To my wonderful surprise a very nice person made a bid on shipping my piano that I could afford. He was a great person to negotiate with and when he wheeled my grandmother's piano into my living room my heart soared! Now I walk by my piano everyday and I remember my grandmother and I laughing and singing. My sons and I will take lessons soon. What a legacy for my boys! Thanks uShip!
