Saint Mary's School, a 166 year old boarding and day school for high school girls in Raleigh, North Carolina, was looking for a large fire pit, and while I was visiting in Austin, Texas, I found a 60" diameter-steel one and I bought it. The hardware store could not ship it, so I went on-line and found uShip. Within a couple of days from having posted a listing, I had an acceptable bid. The shipper was professional and helped me through the process since I have never shipped anything across the country before. The fire pit was picked up in Austin and delivered to Raleigh within two weeks of the time I made my listing with uShip.
