My daughter took a job in Northern California and had to move within two weeks to start. She had pretty much lived at home since finishing college, and while she didn't have a houseful of stuff to move, she did have some large items (bed, dresser) that wouldn't fit in either one of our cars. We looked in to renting a UHaul trailer, but the cost of putting a hitch on my SUV plus the cost of the rental was nearly $1000. Add the cost of gas from Los Angeles to the San Francisco Bay area, and it was going to cost a fortune to get her moved. Fortunately, while looking online for a reasonably priced mover, I found uship! Within an hour, I had two bids and before I could answer either of them, they were competing with each other. I chose the one who had the highest positive feedback and I could not have been more pleased with his service. Once I had accepted Mountain Transport's bid, they emailed me, then called, and we set up a date for them to pick the items up. Just a few days before, my daughter had still been unable to take possession of her apartment, but it was no problem for the movers! They readjusted the date for us, and stayed on top of it, calling me just ahead of the pick up. Mike and his wife were incredibly nice, had a great sense of humor, picked the items up on time (even a little early!) and delivered them with NO damage at all. He even set my daughters bed and frame up for her. They are awesome and I will definitely give them a call the next time I have something to move.
