I fell in love at first sight-with an antique art nouveau armoire on E-bay! Had to have it but didn't have clue as to how to get it from GA to MD. I needed white glove service for this very special piece. I searched around on-line but didn't couldn't bear the thought my new aquisition being just another piece of frieght to some big van line and waiting-up to 2 weeks, maybe- to see my "new love" at the door. What's a poor girl to do? Desperate for a solution I went to antique listings and took note of recommended shippers-that's when I found uShip and after several bids- Johnny Express. As it turned out-a perfect match. They went Way above the call!!! They got an 18th century armoire up a 20th century skinny turnback staircase others would not have even attempted! They did so carefully and with creative thought, strength, willingness and sheer determination to not give up,they succeeded. And all in one day! There should be a category above positive just for 'Johnny Express'! So now my French armoire and I are living happily ever after!
