My friend Matt was moving from Minneapolis to Baltimore. He only had a small apartment to move, but the whole move was taking place on a limited budget. After checking with all the usual suspects on shipping/moving services, Matt was in despair about the cost. Searching for another option, I came across uShip and after poking around, I signed up and entered our needs - shipping a leather sofa and a few boxes. We thought we were just fishing and going to receive more of the same expensive offers. Then my e-mail box notified me that I had already (about 5 minutes later) received an e-mail from a guy name Chuck (pacecarnut) that could meet the price we targeted and better yet, could pick up the items within 24 hours. After completing the deal online, it was clear right away what a great guy Chuck was and he arrived to pick the sofa up as planned. He reassured us that he would be in constant contact and even offered to use his moving quilts to protect our leather sofa. Just as we were told, we were contacted again in advance of his arrival in Baltimore and arranged for delivery. Everything went exactly as planned. Chuck and UShip saved us hundreds of the prices we were quoted from major national moving companies - I'd recommend this service and Chuck especially to anyone in the future. Thanks!
