I had recently returned from a year of living abroad and within a month of trying to find a job I decided it was time for a major change. I decided to move to Washington, DC- having never been to the East Coast before. I needed a way to ship my items, all of which fit into a 5 x 4 storage unit stacked 6 feet high. I couldn't afford renting a truck and I couldn't attach a small hitch to my car. I went on UShip and recieved a bid of only $400 to ship all of my belongings from CO to DC. My mover even picked up my items at my storage unit when I wasn't there. The original quotes for car rental fees or a moving company were between $1500 and $2000! RIDICULOUS! I will ALWAYS use UShip in the future, it's the only way to move one item or the whole house.
