When my grandmother moved to a smaller place, much of her furniture was sold or given to family members. I wanted a large bookcase that I remembered from childhood visits, but she lives 12 hours from me. Since I couldn't move the piece myself, I had to find someone who could move it. I didn't realize how expensive it is to have one piece of furniture moved. After getting several on-line bids from shipping companies, I found U-Ship, where I could get multiple bids in just one place. AND I could read reviews of the shippers. I loved the service and was able to find a price I could afford. The shippers were friendly and timely and took great care of the bookcase. Now my grandmother's bookcase is here where we can enjoy it.
