<FONT size=2>My wife and I have been in desperate need of a new mattress. Our friend who recently moved to space prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />te w:st="on">Minnesota</st1:place>te> wanted to get rid of her Sterns and Foster queen-size Mattress that a wealthy X boyfriend had given her as a gift. She wanted to downsize to a smaller bed as this one was a real pain to move and took up too much space. This is a $2500 mattress that has hardly been used as it has been in storage for a while. She told us we could have it if we arranged to have it shipped to us. I figured we couldn't get a mattress of that quality for the cost of shipping it so I decided to pursue it. space prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />>
<FONT size=2>I called several freight companies and got some quotes and went with one company who provided a good price for what I understood would amount to residential indoor pickup and delivery. After a few weeks of trying to coordinate between the third party shipping company, the actual pick-up company and our friend we finally got everyone together only to find out that the truck driver would not assist with the loading of the mattress. We tried again, this time arranging for another friend to help load the item but this time the pick-up company was a no show. After <SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">1 monthN>> of trying to arrange the shipment I gave up on that company and decided to try UShip. If UShip did not come through we would just give up and buy a mattress locally.
N style="FONT-SIZE: 6pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana"><FONT size=2>I listed the Mattress on UShip first thing Monday morning, explicitly stating my requirement to have it picked up indoors and loaded by the freight company. Within an hour or so of listing my shipment I had 2 bids. One of the bidders hit my target price and I began to collaborate with them to ensure they could meet our friend's scheduling needs. After a few quick responses I signed up JAKEEF16 and made arrangements to have the Mattress picked up later that week. Though they missed the original date due to other pickup delays, they rescheduled directly with our friend and arranged another pick-up time. On TRONG>morning they picked up the mattress and less that a week later it is now at my house, and we will be sleeping sound tonight.:p></FONT>AN>

<FONT size=2>In my book that is amazing service the way companies should work. UShip allowed me to easily convey my needs to companies who could provide the service. Major shipping companies just cannot meet the needs of residential shippers. UShip put me in touch with companies that can and for that my wife and I are celebrating Christmas with a good night's sleep.>ONT>>
