I was looking for a better alternative to FedEx and UPS for shipping large fine art prints on canvas, both of which are expensive and have size limitations. I went online and Googled "shipping" and found uShip, and decided to give it a try. Within a day I was surprised to receive a half dozen bids all from qualified small shippers, all at about half the cost of FedEx or UPS. I chose one experienced in handling antiques because I was shipping stretched art prints, and the shipper, Penn Antique, and Filip, responded immediately and we arranged shipment. The prints were picked up within a few days and transported to New York City where my client received them. My client and I both were very pleased with the service and will use this shipper again. Overall I am really pleased with the uShip marketplace and the very thorough info they provide on shippers on the web site, and would use uShip again in the future rather than ship with big name shippers.
