I recently inherited a grandfather clock. The clock was located in San Antonio, TX and I live in Elk Grove, CA. I almost didn't take the clock because I thought it would be too costly to ship it to CA. I was referred to uShip and went online to place my request for a shipping bid. I accepted a bid from Express Piano and was still online when my phone rang. It was Drex, of Express Piano, saying his daughter had alerted him of my bid acceptance -- he was in Louisiana heading for Texas -- and could pick up my clock the next day!! I was thrilled he could do it so quick. My clock arrived today in perfect condition!! I recommend Express Piano wholeheartedly to anyone having a shipping need.
