To stock my new knitting shop in Carlisle, PA, I bought out a closed shop in California and shipped the contents. Semper Fi was the successful bidder on uShip, and I cannot speak highly enough of their service. They moved literally hundreds of bags and cartons of first quality hand-knitting yarns, thousands of patterns, and kits, buttons, needles -- in short all the wonderful things necessary to make our new shop go. I have left positive feedback about Semper Fi. They were not only affordable but professional, communicative, and accurate.
One of the tips from uShip to get more bids is to post a picture of the items to be shipped. We didn't have a picture of that, but... we DID have a pic of the destination. It is a pre-Civil War-era former church, Greek Revival Style, out in the country in rural Pennsylvania, taken on a lovely May day. I don't know if it helped, but we received many bids, so we are happy.
So glad I found uShip and Semper Fi! We will use the service again and again, and we will gladly tell our friends and colleagues about it.
