I was having furniture shipped from my father in Texas to me in Colorado. I am a single woman so I needed the furniture unloaded and brought into the house, companies that advertized dropping the shipment off in a garage or covered area wouldn't work for me. Main Street Movers were extremely helpful and provided extra services. The driver removed my old couch and placed it in a storage shed in my back yard. He brought everything inside and then put my futon couch together which turned out to be complicated and took a long time. After all that he even loaded up my old dresser and took it to my ex-mother-in-law's house where he unloaded it and took it upstairs. When I looked into traditional shipping methods like UPS or driving a moving truck myself I would have spent $1000 or more. Most of the bids I received were around $650, and my total ended up being $500. If I ever need to ship something again this will be the place I look first!
