My husband and I were forced to relocate to the mid west (where family lived) after job lay offs when the mortgage market crashed. At the time we had to put everything we owned in storage and could only bring a few limited items for the move since we were going to be living with family for a little while. Our hope was to afford to bring everything back with us asap but as funds were very limited, and adding the cost of expensive storage, we just couldn't save up enough to bring our belongings back when planned. For the last year we rented and lived on borrowed bits and pieces of furnitings and other household items. We finally had some $ saved up and family had offered to pay for part if we found a mover with in our budget. I seriously did not think we would ever find anyone to move our things with in that budget after gas prices had sky rocketed so much in the last year. We recieved a bid from sducky which is J & S moving and transport. These guys were awesome. The whole experience was simple, reliable and very affordable for us. I would highly recommend them to anyone who has items needing to be shipped whether long distance or short. Thanks again Uship and thank you ever so much J & S Moving and Transport.
