I shopped around looking to deliver a single dresser from Calgary to Vancouver. Hard to find anything less than $600. Renting a truck would have cost over a thousand bucks. My first offer from uShip was just under $300 which was close to my estimated gas expense if I drove out and picked it up myself. Then I had an awesome offer of $135 and accepted that (just $19 for the uShip fee). Nice to see there were no hidden fees anywhere. The shipper was arranging multiple small deliveries but only took a couple days to pick it up. It was delivered to my door (actually into my living room) the next day after pick up. The delivery person was very polite and clean. The owner I spoke to was very attentive and quick to communicate every step of the way. My wife was very wary of giving money to people we didn't know and having other people we didn't even meet to pick it up. But it all worked out perfectly. Thank you very much!!!
