We were moving from north Idaho to southeastern Idaho. I graduated from college in December and we had to be down by January for a new job. The day of the move it snowed 12 inches while we packed the truck. The movers were late getting there because they got stuck in the blowing snow and had to get towed out. We left Sunday afternoon and only made it 100 miles before we had to quit because the snow was so bad. The movers had to quit as well. We left early the next day but they had to find new chains because theirs broke. They ended up getting snowed in for another day in Spokane, WA. They finally left Spokane on Tuesday morning and a normal 6 to 7 hour drive took them almost 14 hours to get to southeast Idaho because of the snow. We also had to stop for an extra night in Montana because we could not see the road anymore. They were exhausted when they finally found our apartment after 10 P.M. on Tuesday. A normal 8 to 9 hour drive ended up taking 3 days. The movers ended up making it home at 12 A.M. December 24. Just in time for Christmas. It was a crazy move. The movers were great and nothing had even shifted. I will definitely use uShip and these movers again if they will accept another move from us one day.
