My parents moved to FL along with my brother's and sister's familes over 25 years ago leaving me behind! Now my mother is selling her house and there were two desks that I always remember being in my home as a kid that I wanted to have but getting them from FL to NJ was proving a monetary problem since they only held sentimental value. Having gone through several scenarios with my sister, including having both of us drive half-way, and having a shipping price from one company that would pay for a short vacation, I did one more internet search and found uShip. I did some searching around the site, liked the feedback I saw and decided to jump in listing my items. In less than 24 hours I had three bids that were all lower than the first shipper I had contacted. I chose a bidder that was not the lowest but was familiar with both locations. Within two weeks I95 transporter made contact with my sister in FL and found the desks at her home which was not the original address I had given them, since she moved the desks as I was accepting Jim's bid on-line. Within another 48 hours I95 made their way to my home with a phone call and no directions on my part. Now I'm happy to have my desks and at a great price and hardly any effort on my part. Now I just have to find a place to put them:)
