WE WERE IN DIRE NEED OF SOMEONE TO DELIVER A HEAVY (342 LBS.) MARBLE TOP BAR THAT WE PURCHASED FROM AMERICAN FURNITURE WAREHOUSE. DUE TO THE FACT THAT IT WAS A DISCONTINUED ITEM AND WAS ON THE AFW FLOOR THEY COULD NOT DELIVER IT FOR US. THE BAR WAS VERY HEAVY AND VERY FRAGILE. WE PURCHASED THIS ITEM AS IT WAS AT A VERY DISCOUNTED PRICE…BUT HOW WE WOULD GET IT HOME OR UP OUR STEPS TO OUR SECOND FLOOR MASTER SUITE WE DID NOT KNOW. WE REALIZED THAT IT WAS POSSIBLE THAT WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PUT IT WHERE WE WANTED IT FOR AN AFFORDABLE COST. I STARTED TO MAKE CALLS TO THE DIFFERENT MOVERS IN THE AREA AND THEN WHILE SEARCHING THE WEB I STUMBLED ACROSS “USHIP”. I LISTED MY ITEM WITH THEIR SERVICE AND RECEIVED 3 BIDS. I WAS SURPRISED THAT WE RECEIVED ANY DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE DELIVERY. THE ITEM NEEDED TO BE PICKED UP AT THE STORE…BROUGHT TO OUR HOME…AND CARRIED UP SOME “TRICKY” STEPS TO OUR MASTER SUITE. "USHIP" SAVED THE DAY FOR US. THE EXPERIENCE TOOK ALL OF THE WORRY OUT OF AN OTHERWISE TRYING TIME. IT COST US NOTHING TO LIST OUR REQUEST FOR A MOVING BID. THE WAY THAT THE MOVERS, MOUNTAIN MEN, WERE PORTRAYED ON THE "USHIP" WEBSITE IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY WERE. I WISH THAT I HAD KNOWN ABOUT "USHIP" BEFORE. WHEN I HAVE A SHIPPING OR MOVING PROBLEM IN THE FUTURE I WILL NOT CALL ANY MOVERS/SHIPPERS BUT WILL IMMEDIATELY LIST A REQUEST FOR BID WITH "USHIP". I INTEND TO TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THE WONDERFUL SERVICE THAT THEY OFFER. AS A MATTER OF FACT I HAVE ALREADY STARTED TO TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THEIR SERVICE. JUST ONE CALL TO THEM OR POSTING ON THEIR WEBSITE AND THEY TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING ELSE. THANKS TO THEM WE FINALLY HAD A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE WITH MOVERS.
