I needed a vintage Leslie speaker shipped from Florida to a Hammond tech in New Jersey. As with anything Hammond, shipping is a deal breaker and most want to find something close to home. I'm overseas and needed a convenient, not so complicated reliable shipper who would carry the speaker to its special destination. As I have experiences with musical equipment arriving damaged in the hands of the popular international movers I was concerned that along with a large fee and many steps involved, would be an "iffy' shipping experience where these large companies leave things in the hands of their insurance adjusters.
uShip adds an alternative to the major shippers and provides shippers who are more conscientious about their delivery. The bid response is immediate and can be tailored to moving things when you need them to be moved and to where you need them moved. I would ship with uShip again as a result of my experience.
