I live in Spokane, Washington, and I purchased a larger-than-life bronze deer statue from a private party in Florida for a good price, but had a terrible time trying to line up a shipper to get it here. Most shipping/trucking companies did not want to deal with it because it was not crated or on a pallet, and the ones that were interested wanted a fortune. I found Uship online, listed my deer with them and found a shipper within a week. Withing hours of listing I started to get inquiries from potential shippers, but it was not until a few days later when I raised the bid price a little higher (but still barely half of the average bids I was getting from regular shippers) that Jackie Dempere bid on my statue as she was based in Washington and already headed to Florida. We struck the deal and she picked up my deer when she said she would and delivered it 10 days later in perfect condition. I could not be more pleased with Uship and with Jackie. Thanks Uship! I will certainly keep you in mind in the future and tell all my friends and business associates about Uship.
