My first experience with USHIP has been fantastic. Jon from EnglishMovers was wonderful. We had purchased an antique wooden ice box (in April 2007) while visiting my mom in California, (we live in New Jersey), we figured we would figure out a way to get it home later. We went on line and found USHIP and decided to try it, we received a few bids and about 5 months later Jon from EnglishMovers put in a bid, we accepted it and waited to hear from him. I was making a trip to California in October and it happened that Jon was also going to be there and pick up the Ice Box, now up to this point nothing unusal was happening until the fires broke out in San Diego. The day Jon was to pick up my item he couldn't get out due to the fires and all the major roads being blocked, he was stuck for two days, when they finally were letting some of the vehicles on the road Jon unhooked his trailer left it at the hotel and just drove his truck to come and pick up my item, he was determined to pick it up for me and start back east. We weren't as concerned about him picking up our item as we were for him getting out of the fires and on the road to safety. Well I can tell you he made it out just fine. Yesterday (Friday, 9 November 2007) we received our ice box, Jon, truck, trailer and ice box ALL safe and sound! Thank you USHIP for providing this service and for having wonderful people working for you. I would recommend this service to anyone! JOB WELL DONE, Dennis & Brenda M.
