Following the death of my mom just before Christmas, my siblings and I had to empty her condo in a seniors building by the end of the month. None of us lived in the city so the items - all substantial antiques - had to be shipped. Both my sister and I used uShip and both of us had excellent experiences with people who were caring, accommodating, and prompt. This is the second time I have had to ship items from my mom's home and I expect it is not uncommon for individuals who have busy lives to find themselves coordinating the downsizing of a parent's home to an apartment or, following the sad reality of death, having to empty out a home or condo. We found both these times incredibly stressful because of our busy lives and the distances we lived from our parent's home. uShip made it possible for us to deal with the work of moving things so that we could deal with the work of lamenting the changes our parent was going through and, finally, grieving her loss. Thank you for the work you do. It meant the world to me to be able to hand the challenge over to you so that I could simply deal with other things. with sincere thanks, gretta
