My parents had an oak rolltop desk that they were done using and were about to donate. I come from a family of 5 kids and I live the farthest from all the family. Normally when items go up for grabs, as our parents move on from old furniture and tools, I miss out because I live so far away. For once, I had dibs on an item, but I had no idea how to move it 2100 miles. I contacted standard move companies and was surprised by the price. I found uShip during my on-line search and quickly signed up and listed the roll top desk. I was very flexible with dates and had a budget dollar in mind. A shipper was able to find my shipment and match it with another load. He made a few extra dollars picking up an additional item and I got a GREAT deal! Now I sit at my new oak rolltop desk, a great reminder for myself and my kids of grandma's house and a wonderful addition to my home's decor. Thank you uShip for providing a great matching service. Now when dad is ready to pass on his power tools, I just list them on uShip and keep'em out of my brothers hands!
