On a weekend shopping trip, my wife purchased bedroom furniture from a market in Canton, TX. The vendor who sold us the furniture had successfully used major shipping companies for other clients, but shipping prices were way too high for our tastes. Because we live 4 hours from Canton in the greater Houston area, for us to pick up the furniture would have been expensive and a major hassle: 1) borrow or rent a vehicle capable of transferring the furniture. 2) 8 hours of round trip travel. 3) arrange for a day of childcare, etc... I decided to see what was available online and found uShip. I signed up, submitted my request, and quickly received and accepted a bid that far out-priced other shipping quotes and our own projected expenses had we chosen to pick it up ourselves. The people who shipped our furniture did so in a professional & timely manner. Because of uShip, we saved money and avoided hassle! We'd definitely use uShip again!
