My daughter moved to Maine and left her apartment contents in storage in Florida. It was up to me to arrange pick up and delivery from central FL to northeastern ME. She and her husband have 1 child and, despite his new dream job, still earned below poverty level. Circumstances necessitated the very best price on moving this stuff 1650 miles. I posted to U-Ship and got what I thought was a fair offer (relative to movers' quotes). After I explained the situation to MRV Transport, they found a way to combine other shipments with my daughter's to give me an even better price. The caring contribution of these strangers to my daughter's move was indeed a burden lifted.
