I purchased, as a surprise for my husband, his grandmother's 45th wedding anniversary grandfather clock. As she has recently passed her eldest son has traveled to her home in Arizona and is staying there in order to complete the necesary tasks such as having an estate sale, executing the will, etc. I had special requirements in contracting a shipper as I needed to get the clock and an additional dresser picked up prior to the estate sale which was esentially within 7 days of posting my request on uship. Larrbo transportation was the only shipper wiling to accomodate the quick pick up timeframe. They brought in a professional clock repair person to prep the clock for shipment and picked up both items sooner than expected! The delivery was also completed sooner than expected. Larry was very personalable and gladly accepted a check. Angi was his right hand gal and coordinated with me all tactical issues. The best part of the story is when my husband came home and saw the clock he thought he'd never see again in his own living room. He walks by it daily and says to me "I love that clock" and thanks me. I always mention that Larry and Angi actually coordinated the effort and got the heirloom to our home in mint condition. They will never understand what their efforts meant to my family.
