I am a telecoms consultant and my work makes me move a lot from one state to another. And as much as possible, I want to bring my family with me everywhere my work brings me. It is a tough thing to have them tag along with me, especially when my daughter started school in Dallas in September '06. Another tough thing is building a home wherever we go. And doing that means gaining household stuff.
Which brings me to uShip.
After the Dallas project, which ended in March 2007, my family and I have been to Seattle, then California. It is always a big task to pack our stuff, especially with such short notice due to the nature of my job, but we could only carry enough stuff in our mid-size SUV. So we always had to sell some of our stuff as we leave a place, or leave them behind in friends' house, hoping that someday, we would be able to collect them back in one place.
And that is what we have just done. Our stuff in Seattle, California and Dallas are all in one place now - back where we started, in Alpharetta, GA.
Thanks to the Internet and uShip. All my wife's art stuff, my daughters' school projects and "can't sleep without" toys, and my DVD collection, are all together. As I move on with my job (and this time, I move to another state every month, which makes it impractical to have my family tag along), my wife and two little daughters are trying to settle again in Georgia.
And if we move again (hopefully not in the near future), I know that uShip would be there.
Many thanks to Terry Cogan-fastmove54-neversaynever man, for being the right guy for the job. He was able to fulfill my required pickup and delivery dates, at a reasonable price. I appreciate all the updates as he went through the task - upon pickup, during transport, and upon delivery. Talk about professionalism, flexibility and good service.
More power to all of you guys, keep up the good work!
