I had a great experience this past weekend having some relatively bulky furniture shipped from California to Chicago by Teamrio. My fiance's parents had graciously offered us a set of leather couch, chair, and ottoman during our recent visit to California. My fiance Jenny and I had just relocated from Seattle, and had a nice apartment with no living room furniture and limited money to furnish it! Jenny did a little Internet sleuthing and found UShip. Her bid was responded to within hours, and Teamrio blew everyone away with a great price. We couldn't pass up the opportunity, and since Robert of Teamrio was already making a delivery in California, Jenny was able to accept the bid and have the furniture picked up in California within 3 days of even finding the UShip site!
Robert arrived in Chicago 3 days after picking up the items, and called the morning of delivery to provide an estimated time. He arrived in the earlier portion on that time frame, and I was surprised to find that he brought Jonathan with him (I was expecting to help Robert carry the furniture up the short flight of stairs to our first floor apartment). The first thing Robert says to me when he arrives is how much he enjoyed meeting my future father-in-law! Very personable and friendly service. The two of them carefully unloaded the furniture, negotiated the doors (the bulky couch was a little tricky to get around the turn into our unit -- and they were exceptionally careful not to either (a) break anything or (b) tear any of the covering. Jonathan even helped me straighten the throw rug after they brought the furniture in.
To summarize, I have had a lot of experiences with movers, and usually hope to get through them with minimal headache. Teamrio stands out for me as the optimal moving experience -- inexpensive, careful, quick, and friendly. I would definitely use UShip and Teamrio again.
