SSDrayline did an excellent job of shipping a treasured family heirloom from my hometown to Philadelphia. The Chippendale secretary desk has been in my family for about 90 years. When I was 10 years of age I was hoping it would someday become my own. When my mother entered a nursing home last month the desk was ready for me. I checked into various ways of shipping it. Most places wanted $600-$800. I researched Uship on line and decided to give it a try. Within a couple of weeks I received a bid of $200.00 from Drayline. I wanted to see his record and discovered that this would be his first cross country shipment. I again decided to give it a go. My sister was in Wisconsin and was very impressed with how Rodney took great care in packing and securing my treasure. Incidentally, there had been a snowstorm the night before and Rodney arrived early and could not get close to the loading door so he shoveled out the area to secure a clean area. He called me right after he left Wisconsin to let me know all systems were "go". He arrived as scheduled. Each piece of the the secretary desk was in perfect condition. It sits in the corner of my living room and has transformed the feeling of the room. Thanks to Rodney and Uship I have a piece of family history always present.
