I had the opportunity to purchase a collector quality dollhouse that was located in Algonquin, IL. I needed to have it shipped to my residence in Henderson, NV. Because of its very large size (nearly 6" long and its height 58") it could not be shipped using normal small package delivery. The value of this dollhouse is approx $4800.00. I found UShip online. I entered my perameters, and Randall Smith bid on my shipment. I did have several other bids, but they were all well over what I could afford to pay. Randy was able to work my shipment into his schedule and since I did not absolutely have to have it by any certain date, he was able to work it out so my cost was much more reasonable. He picked up the house, crated it, and took wonderful care of my shipment. He kept me totally informed all along his trip back West. My husband got sick, ended up in the hospital in Phoenix, and we had to delay delivery by nearly a week. Randy was wonderful to work with! He is truly a full-service provider. The entire experience I had was great. The UShip website was so easy to use. I will refer UShip and RL Smith to anyone that needs to have great shipping contacts. This was a five star experience for me. Thanks!!
