I found Professional Piano Movers (http://www.professionalpianomovers.com/) through the uShip bid process. They offered the best price (about half what one local company wanted) and were obviously experienced with my item, a Hammond organ -- they asked whether I would set the tie-down shipping bolts or wanted them to do it. I had just bought it from a friend of a friend and was anxious to start working with it. The move date got shifted a couple of times because of major snowstorms here in the Northeast, but David (of PPM) kept me informed of developments and they did deliver the instrument, without a scratch and in good working order. There were some idiosyncracies of packing that particular instrument (reverb unit needed to be disconnected and hand-carried) which fortunately David handled with aplomb. An excellent move, at a great price, which would not have been possible without uShip to match up PPM with my needs.
