My service provider, or the guy who won the bid, was excellent. I was moving a heavy piano. His price was OK. His dolly looked inadequite at first, but proved to be just right. I was in a rush to find a mover and ran through the deposit part on Uship. I was very put out to find out that that deposit wasn't toward the payment for the service, rather that it was toward Uship. It was a $20 deposit and I only spent $120 to ship my piano. That is almost 20%. So my point is that $20 might have not even crossed my mind as to much if I was moving a house, but for Uship to take $20 for providing a place on the web for only a $120 deal seems a bit excessive to me. Anyway, I apreciate the service, I had an excellent mover, Uship is a needed service because it is so dang hard to find a good mover for a non-mindboggling price.
