My Mother had a cedar chest that she bought as a young woman. It has moved back and forth over the U.S. many times over the past 25 years. During Mom's last move to Reno, it was necessary to leave her chest with family in Minnesota, with the understanding that I was to receive it ASAP. That was seven years ago. Didn't happen! Unfortunately, my Mom died before I was able to get her chest back to her. Well, I finally decided to ship it myself. I found your company after an online search. I listed my chest and I received multiple bids. I chose a local MN shipper. I was concerned that the age of the chest(60 yrs+) would be a liability. Alan cared for the chest as though it was his. He had it wrapped in shipping blankets and carefully stowed it in his truck. Alan called me the day after delivery to make sure everything was OK with the chest. He and his wife were very helpful and informative. I was comfortable with them and very happy with the service. I would highly recommend this shipper--a very positive transaction. If I should have any item to be shipped, I would definitely use Alan's company again and I will definitely urge others to use uShip as well! What a great resource.
