We are first time home owners and will be moving in shortly. We didn't have any appliances and with a home purchase you have to save money anywhere you can. My parents had just moved and their new home was complete with a refrigerator. They offered us their, practically brand new, side-by-side refrigerator. With one condition. We had to get it to our home 750 miles away. We don't have a truck and to travel up and back would have cost over $200 in fuel not to mention wear and tear on the vechicle. I found uShip on the internet while searching for "discount shippers" and signed up and put my details in my computer. Within a couple of days we were receiving bids for the shipping and we had it shipped for $230. We had a few hiccups with getting the pick up days sorted out but the trucker was understanding and worked with us and we received our "new" $1500 side-by-side refrigerator just a few days ago. All for just a few minutes on the internet and $230. That's less than the "used" refrigarators listed in the local newspaper. We saved time and lots of money. What more could you want in this day and age.
