I needed to ship a piano from my grandparent's home in the SFO area to the PHX area. I have no idea the worth of the piano, but my grandparents know that my children take lessons, and wanted them to have it. I checked around to see what this was going to cost us. It was looking like it would be a waste- we don't even know the value of the piano, so didn't want to spend a lot of money on something that could turn out to be worthless. I came upon uShip and figured I'd give it a try. The first couple bids came in, but I was hesitant because the price was higher than I was willing to risk, yet much lower than the previous research I had done! When Mountain Transport's bid came it was about half of the other bids. I was so excited. I explained my situation to them. My grandparents are in the process of moving out of their home of 65 years, I did not want to cause any unnecessary stress, etc. Mike was very professional, very prompt and very creative- the front door of the home was not an easy way for the piano to get out, but it was better than the back door. When he arrived in Arizona he called me and let me know when he would be at my home to deliver. He was right on time, helped me move the other piano over and got me all set up. He even brought my grandma's piano music and a box of antique cups and saucers from my great grandmother for our daughter. The piano arrived this afternoon and it sounds a lot better than I was expecting, so it was carefully transported here. I will have it tuned next week and we will soon be enjoying beautiful music! Thank you for your kindness and professionalism Mike! From the highest price we were quoted to Mike's price, we saved over $1200.
