I remember the record player that my great-grand father had in his living room during my childhood. This family heirloom had been passed down to my mother, and now to me. A 1920's Edison record player with extremely fragile, one-of-a-kind records that only work with the Edison. When it came time to ship the item from the NorthEast to Florida, I knew that I would need help, but I also wanted to be there in person to package the records and be sure everything would work out. My plan was to visit a client of mine in the region (to justify the cost of travel) and then meet the shipper at the exact time of pick-up. As you can imagine, coordinating a pick-up time with a "large box" shipper is nearly impossible; I was very concerned that the shipper I selected though uShip would show up according to their schedule and that my master plan would fall apart (I had to meet the client that afternoon, many hours away and I could not be late). "Shofar Gifts" met my needs with perfect timing at 7am... in fact, they were 30 minutes early! The perfect timing and excellent communication with Shofar made the entire experience a real pleasure, and I met with my client that afternoon, on time, and with 100% confidence that my cherished record player was properly prepared, well packaged, and on the way to its new home without injury. Perfect timing, perfect delivery.
