I've been looking on Ebay for a birds eye maple dresser in good condition for over a year. I finally found one, but it was in Chicago, over 600 miles away. I checked with several shippers I found via googling "Mini Movers". All wanted $400+. I wasn't sure the total price would be worth it as the shipping was now more than the dresser. What a dilemma. I found the dresser I wanted, but I was agonizing over the cost to ship. Then I read about uShip.com. I was a bit skeptical at first. But the Better Business Bureau relationship made me feel comfortable. I signed up and posted. Within 2 hours I had a bid of $230! This made the dresser worth the purchase. I put an offer in, got the dresser and coordinated with Thomas Mazurkiewicz my shipper. Thomas picked it up that day. He documented the condition with the owner, called me to give an ETA and was off. He kept me informed yesterday and today and arrived this afternoon with my piece. He was nice, profesional and affordable! I told at least 4 people at work about uShip. Its a great concept. I will definitely use uShip again. Keep up the great work and Thanks! Kevin
