My son got a job in Atlanta. He wanted the recliners that were in my living room, two dressers his grandmother gave him, a full size bed from his brother and I also wanted him to have most of his stuff out of my house.
He closed on his home on a Tuesday. My husband decided he was going to rent a u-haul. The u-haul was $900 plus gas and travel time. I went online to see if there was a way to ship the items to him. I found uship online. I put the furniture shipment online and immediately got responses. Some fit, some didn't. I could not have the items in Atlanta before the closing. Larry had the perfect timing. Picked up the items on Monday and was at the home on Tuesday right after the closing. My son could immediately start moving in. Good thing, the new bed that was supposed to be delivered didn't come til Wednesday. The best thing about the whole move is the fact that it cost $454. Less than half of what the u-haul would have cost and we did not have to make the 12 hour drive to Atlanta.
