This shipping experience was as rare as they come. Usually when you ship an item with a National Chain you get the Royal Run Around. Normally when you ship a large item by freight lines the normal sequence of events is as follows. They give you a date to pick up, which is always between Monday and Friday so that you have to take a day off of work. Then without missing a beat that date always changes, because either the driver passed away on his way down or there was worst case of severe sunshine that the company has ever seen. Then the pickup date changes to the Next day "sometime" in the A.M., which means another day off. Then as A.M. turns into P.M. and sometimes it turns into the following day, the items are finally picked up with an estimated delivery time of "about 10 days".
Remember Tom Hanks in the movie Money Pit whenever he asked the Contractor for a date the work would be completed it was always, AHHHH...........2 Weeks!!
I won my auction for two pieces of furniture that were located in Portsmouth RI at 10:30 A.M. on Friday. Contacted the shipper and they picked up the items at 7:00 P.M. same day. They wrapped both items in blankets and rewrapped them a second time completely in plastic, included in the quote at no additional cost. Then the items arrived at my door on Monday (3 days later) at 7:45 A.M. at half the cost and three times less hassle, with no damage. It does not get any better!! The drivers name is Will, and he stayed in touch with me the whole time.
This is my first time going thru uShip, but it will not be the last. I have told all my friends about the promptness and cost savings I received. I really think the owners of this website have a winner on their hands and I can see it being a MONSTER Nationally in a short Period of time.
Thanks Again to Rob and Will for an Incredible Shipping Experience.
