I am a first time user of Uship, and had heard nothing but horror stories about moving from friends who had thier stuff stolen, damaged, or held for ransom by someone they had found online (not through Uship, though). I received several bids, and this one was the least money for the most services, including packing everything up for me. The communication was great with Mike, and he answered all of my anxiety based questions. I did what the moving scam sites suggested with checking license numbers and insurance, and Southern MD checked out beautifully.
My furniture and boxes were handled so gently; everything arrived in perfect condition, even the artwork that we had only bubble wrapped Robert wrapped up further in blankets. I was nervous when Robert first came, as it was in a rented truck which the scams sites say not to trust. I was so nervous from all the scary stuff I had read online that I almost backed out and paid more than twice my total to have a national company move it, but weeks later. I'm glad that I trusted my gut, and the reviews online about this company. I highly recommend them, and will use them again if they will accept my offer in a year or so to move up north. It was a wonderful experience, and I have nothing but great things to say about Southern Maryland Moving and Storage, Mike, Robert, and the gentlemen they had helping them move. Thanks guys!!
