I had a relatively new couch that I needed to get rid of but did not want to throw it out, sell it, or give to charity (all hassles). My mom needed a new couch so the challenge was getting it across country for a price that wouldn't negate the savings of giving her the couch to begin with. I was flexible on timing; price was paramount. So I posted the couch on uship and waited for the right price. Luckily, I got what I was looking for plus great service to boot. I saved $200 by shipping the couch through uship.
