I was shipping a set of paintings and prints I had lost in a divorce to my ex who was now moving to China and could not keep them anymore. (There is a God.) She wanted to get them out of her house which was up for sale ASAP. I was afraid it would prove too expensive to ship due to size and fragile nature of the pieces, but UShip came through with a provider who was affordable and in the area of Minneapolis during the winter. They accomodated me very quickly, picked up my artwork, and stored it until they could deliver to Macon, GA where I reside. There were several minor delays but I was in no hurry and they always called and let me know what was going on. Finally, my stuff arrived and my walls are full of great artwork that I never thought I would see again. They were professionally packed and unharmed to my surprise. (I was skeptical about what they would look like after so long a trip.) PLUS, there is still some cash left in my wallet. It would have cost me an arm and a leg to ship commercially. A great experience all around working with this group. Will use UShip again for sure.
