I was very apprehensive using U-SHIP. Not knowing the shipper or having references is scary. I was under the gun on a deadline to have the shipment moved. My biggest concern was whether they were going to show at all and how late! My shipment was large and odd size items. There were 23 pallets of store fixtures including 4 tier tables, chairs, benches, 96" shelving, and display racks. Most of the items were not able to be dismantled. I had researched renting a 26ft truck, hiring 2 day laborers and doing the move myself. With the cost of fuel the biggest factor, I decided to see what was out there for bids and who would be willing to move a shipment of this size. I went to the U-SHIP site, did some poking around and threw caution to the wind and went for it. I posted my shipment, along with {4} photos {there should be space for more photos}, and described the dimensions as accurately as I could. I started receiving questions about my shipment almost instantly. Then the bids started coming. I researched all the prospective movers and discovered that most will only MOVE the shipment from one destination to the next. I needed a mover that would actually move the items, you know, load and unload. I sent questions back and forth to several movers before being confident enough to accept the Larry Clark bid. I contacted him directly and conveyed my time frame concerns. He assured me he would be there. The move was scheduled for 8:00am 9/18/08. I was late due to traffic and when I arrived the warehouse did not know where my shipment was. They bounced me between two different locations. All this time I did not see my mover waiting for me. I was very worried. I called him and spoke to his wife who assured me he left VERY EARLY and also told me what kind of vehicle he had. When I finally figured out which building I needed to be at, I pulled up and saw him there. They were already packed. We proceeded to the delivery and it went off with OUTSTANDING FINESE. LARRY CLARK 4STARS!
