I had a piano and bench (family heirloom)shipped from Ohio to AZ. The family member that had the piano, was moving and wouldn't have space for the piano. The service provider is AAA Piano Services. I had checked several providers on the internet and this was the best offer I found. I was contacted in a very timely period. We spoke on the telephone and was told about his business - he only ships pianos. This was a plus for me because I know that pianos take extra care in shipping. Stephen, the owner, is very personable and was very willing to answer any questions I had. He gave me the date he would be picking up the piano and called to let me know when he would be delivering it. Is his service good? You be the judge. Between PA. and OH. he had some engine trouble and thought he would be at least a day late for the pick up. He contacted the Ohio party to let them know. THEN he called back and said "if it isn't inconvenient for you we can pick the piano up in the late evening of the arranged date". They arrived, loaded the piano and was on their way. They must have made up some time on their way to AZ. as they delivered the piano a day early. I'm sure this isn't the norm, but they are "tops" in my book. I would use their services again and I would use uShip again also.
