I had a single piece of furniture to move that once belonged to my great grandparents. It was the very first piece of furniture they bought when they set up housekeeping, so it has a lot of sentimental value. The piece is an oak commode that is over one hundred years old. I had to move it from my sister's modern loft in DC to my one hundred year old colonial in Massachusetts, but I didn't know how to go about it. I was searching the internet and found Uship, and I thought I'd post my item to see if I'd get any bids. I received about half a dozen bids from which to choose. Uship We Haul wasn't the cheapest or the most expensive mover, but was the best fit for us. Mike did a great job staying in touch, and the piece arrived beautifully wrapped and in perfect shape. I would definitely use both Uship and Uship We Haul again.
