I stumbled onto the uShip website when I was trying to decide how to get my piano to Phoenix from Sacramento. My daughter had been piano-sitting for me for about 8 years while I finished grad school and got a job. I posted a listing and got 8 bids--several quite competitive--less than half what it would have cost me to fly there, rent a Uhaul, load it and bring it myself. We chose the one that looked best based on prices, feedback and delivery schedule. The rest went like clockwork. the piano was picked up and delivered at the appointed time on the appointed day and appears no worse for the wear. Thanks Mountain Transport! It's like having a member of the family home again after a long absence. If I ever need to do this again this will be the first place I will look for a shipper.
