I needed to have a small folding weaving loom transported to me from CA. I am in NJ and was arranging the shipping from my end. At first, this proved to be very difficult. We needed the loom to be packed as well as transported - finding someone who would do this was frustrating.
I asked on several internet weaving lists for recommendations, and several people responded that I should try UShip. I was hesitant at first because my initial listing indicated that I would never find a shipper at the price I wanted to pay. So I immediately deleted the listing, only to find out that my other options were not as good as they first seemed. I put the listing back, and within minutes I received two bids that were within my price range.
Once I accepted a bid, everything went super smooth. My shipper (steveopa) was wonderful. The loom was picked up right on time in CA, survived the worst weather across the country that you can imagine, and was delivered in great shape. I am so glad that I decided to give UShip a try. I will now be the one recommending it to others.
