My mom bought an antique table for me in McKinney, Texas. I was horrified to find out what shipping was going to cost me, but was very excited to get the table before all my family came to town for my daughter's wedding which was less than 3 weeks later. I googled shippers and got several bids. Then I found uship. Within a day, I received an email/question from mrfishaholic. He was traveling my way and thought he could bring the table along. I asked him lots of questions and he patiently and professionally answered them all. I found that he had received 2 positive feedbacks on uship as a shipee, so I figured it was a legitimate offer. Also, when I found out he was in the armed services, I felt even better about his trustworthiness and capabilities. Finally, he put in a bid which was half the price of the others, and with a delivery date way faster than the others, possibly in time for the wedding. I told Ed about my hopes to get it on time and he even offered to hurry his trip which was partially at least, vacation. I felt guilty about that! He called to let me know when he picked it up, where he was along the way. Then, though we had agreed that I would pick it up from him, he ended up going out of his way to drop off the table at my house. My husband was here to meet him, and when I got home, my beautiful table was here!! I was sad that I did not get to meet Ed in person, I probably would have hugged him. My husband, who is not easy to please, spoke so highly of Ed and his wife. The packaging, delivery and communication could not have been better. I saved money, got my table on time for my mom to see my happy reaction when I saw it. Wow. This was so great. I loved uship and I love my shipper, mrfishaholic. Thanks so much!
