This is my first time using uShip. I needed to move an antique oak table, six chairs, and a matching buffet from my Aunt's house in Missouri to my home in Minnesota. I wasn't sure how we were going to do that with our busy schedules and then I found uShip while searching the internet. I was nervous about the idea, but decided to try since there wasn't any other practical way. I accepted a bid from bullridingbuster (Benji Jestice) that was lower than the other bids by almost $200 and could move the furniture within a few days, so I thought it was a good price and convenient. I asked Benji a number of questions before I accepted the bid and then felt comfortable. He was polite and hard working. There was a little damage to the table, but he fixed it and made it sturdier than before. I was impressed with his ingenuity and carpentry skills. I enjoyed talking with him as he worked on the table and found that although people can be from far away places, there is probably always something that you can find in common. It turns out that he and his brothers have lived in west central Minnesota before and have now moved back to Arkansas where he is moving back too at the end of the month. He seems to be a good person who didn't mind driving out of his way to deliver furniture to a stranger. I greatly appreciated the service and don't know how my aunt and I would have gotten that furniture moved without the uShip service. I would definitely use uShip again if the need ever arises. Thanks.
