I found a great item on Ebay but it was in TAMPA and I live in Baton Rouge, LA! Even if I had a pick-up truck (which I don't), and the 12 hours each way it would take to drive there to get it, I knew the item could get rained on or broken (there were lots of glass windows in the piece.) But the price was perfect and I wanted it so much! So I listed it for bids on UShip and got two excellent bids. I took the lower of the two and ended up dealing with Lester and Sheila Liner of Mountain Home, AR, known as "just4pawstrans", and my experience was wonderful. Not only did the Liners keep me advised every step along the way, but they got the breakfront here in perfect shape. I cannot recommend them enough! In fact, the antique dealer from whom I bought the breakfront wanted to get their contact info so HE could use them, too. THANKS to the Liners and to UShip! I couldn't have done this without you (the price quoted by the shipper suggested by the seller, by the way, was DOUBLE what the Liners bid!)
