The problem was how to transfer a full service for 12, heirloom, vintage, complete set of 70 year old porcelain china from MN to CA. While not 'heavy', extremely, extremely fragile -- and unreplaceable. All conventional methods were a) unaffordable, b) risky, c) expensive, and d)unpredictable. Because I maintained flexibility in my desired pickup and delivery dates, LongEarLover's services and bid amount were exactly the service I needed. Without someone to handle this gently and respectful of it's fragile and sentimental value, it would have had to wait ( a long time...) till I could drive it to CA myself. Bob carried it in the personal space of the rig, and when alternative delivery arrangements had to be made gy the recipient, accommodated those changes easily and on time. Site was easy to use, process of listing my shipment and the turn-around from list date to booked date with this provider was just a couple of days! The China is now safe in my daughter's possession, Grandma is happy --and I'm happy, and appreciative of Robyn and Bob . Thank you, Bob and Robyn, so much! We'll be back!
