I had accepted a new job that required me to move from Miami to New York. I could not have been any happier until I discover that none of the big established carrier will deliver my 50" plasma TV. Now, I love this TV (my 8 yr old daughter draw a cartoon of me marrying the TV), and I talked to all the carriers, UPS, Fedex, TV specialty carriers, people who deliver fine art, and no one will touch a plasma. It was too delicate they said. Some will deliver it but without guarantees, and all recommended against it. I had already decide to sell it to my brother in law who offered me $1000 less than store price (the bum!)when I stumble into Uship. I placed my TV for a bid. I chose first match for the price that the art mover had asked (I was desperate)and Jim of I95transporter came along. My wife was skeptic. He'll ruin with the TV, she said. No, not Jim. For the first time I was right. I got my TV delivered in perfect conditions. But the story does not end here. I was in NY, my wife in Miami and I made the mistake of scheduling the delivery for mother's day weekend. Now, I had also arranged for a flight back home on Saturday to surprise my wife. Well I got hold of Jim on Thursday, he was on ther road, and explained the situation. No problem, he said, I can be there on Saturday. Well he did one better, on Friday he called, how today sounds? he asked. Well, he deliver the TV on Friday and I got to fly to Miami on Saturday to surprise my wife on mother's day. All's well that ends well...
