My father passed on in August of 2006, the desk that I had uShip move via Transit Systems, was given to him as a teenager, the desk is 60 years old. The communication between the pick up destination (Pennsylvania) and the drop of destination (Orange Park) with Transit Systmes was excellent. They notified us with the change in the pick up date and why they were changing the date, they were earlier than expected on the date that they said they would deliver. The price was a bit higher than UPS Freight, however, I received a service that I wouldn't have gotten from UPS Freight. They picked the desk up from the spot it was in PA, and when they delivered it to me in FL, they put it right where it was supposed to go. They removed the cardboard and the bubble wrap (as they couldn't tell which end was up) that my family put over the desk to protect it and then insured that where I had them put it, was where I wanted it to go. With UPS Freight, they would have dropped it off in the driveway and in 100 degree heat on a 60 year old desk it would have been the end of the desk. The difference in pricing was $90.00 and that additional $90.00 was well spent in attitude, care and commitment. I would most definately use uShip again and will recommend them to anyone else who plans on shipping any items. It's nice to have my father's desk in my home. I'm glad I used uShip.
