My parents are moving out of their house into a retirement facility, and could not take their player piano ;with them. ; The piano is the only thing left from my Grandmother, and I grew up playing it with my family, so I wanted my children to have the same experience.  However, my parents live in St. Louis and I live near New York City, and we had no way to get the piano here. ; My parents cannot do any lifting, so we needed someone who could do the entire job, door to door, on a limited budget.   I had called around to get quotes from movers a couple of years ago, but it was very time intensive to search on my own and I could not find anyone who would do the whole job for a price we could afford, and even then we would have to wait months to combine with other shipments.  Then I found UShip.  Within one week of placing a request for bids on the move, I had several offers for the job.   We accepted a provider that was wonderful, quick, and had our piano moved in two weeks.  Thank you UShip!
