I was needing to move my belongings 860 miles away to join my fiance-we had just bought a house. I happened to find uShip on the web, and decided to post my shipment, hoping to find someone to move it cheap enough that I wouldn't have to pull a uhaul trailer that far. I used Creative Moving, and Tony did an excellent job, the communication was superb, he treated my belongings as though they were his, and he's just a great guy. His pricing was excellent too-it only cost me a few dollars more to have him move it than it would have cost me for the rental of the trailer at uhaul, the wiring for the lights, the tow bar, the extra fuel, etc. Tony was the only one that actually bid on it, but 2 others sent questions with dollar amounts, and he was the cheapest. After his trailer was empty, we invited him to join us for lunch, we really emjoyed talking with him. I would love to say that I would use uShip again, but I would have to say that I would call Creative Moving first, and if they couldn't help me out, then I would post on uShip, but I sure hope it is a long,long time before I have to move again!
