I had to ship a large sculpture that wouldn't fit in a car or a minivan. Delivery with a rented truck would have been too expensive and shipping through major companies like UPS and FedEx was impossible due to size, and building a crate would have tripled the weight as well. When I looked into uShip, I was amazed to find that I could select to ship un-packaged objects because that's what I would have done if I were to hand deliver the sculpture myself. I would place the piece on a blanket, lean it against the vehicle wall with a pillow stuffed between the wall and the piece, then strap some bungee cables around with pillows between them and my sculpture. That's exactly what John did for me and it worked great. It only cost me $300 where renting a truck would have cost $700 just for the truck itself.
