I bought a wood stove for a price that I couldn't refuse, the only problem was that it was 300 miles away and weighed 500 pounds. And, did I mention that my wife and I had a baby 3 days prior and were moving into our new house in a week. I thought at first that I could pick it up myself but I really had no time. So, I looked at traditional carriers and the price for shipping far surpassed the price of the stove. As I panicked my cousin told me about uShip. Needless to say I was skeptical, but Wow what a great service! The stove was delivered to my door for a 1/8 of the cost I had expected. The shipper was great to deal with and I couldn't have done it without uShip.
