After some deaths in the family, all anyone heard about was how Auntie wanted the china that her mom had used for her 'sweet 16' birthday. Unfortunately, the china was in Houston and she was in Jacksonville. Of course, there were several other items that held special memories, so the California clan gathered the growing list on their occasional trips to Houston so everything could get picked up when she was ready to get them shipped. Four years later, the items were still waiting. So, we got the bright idea to ship them to her for her 75th birthday, and brought on enthusiastic family members to help pay for it. But after calling moving vans, it was clear that no one was going to be able to cover the exorbitant quotes. That's when we checked into uship.com! The bidding process was easy, and generated several bids that just kept getting lower with each new offer. Olympian Movers had the best feedback, and matched our lowest bid. They were very flexible, especially considering that this was all being orchestrated by someone in California who was traveling to Houston, Rochester MN, Chicago, and Washington DC while making the final arrangements! They were professional and courteous, and picked up and delivered on the days agreed to. We would definitely recommend Olympian Movers and uship.com, and may use both again for any moves in the family. Thanks for the help - our auntie was very pleasantly surprised to find out she could use her china for her 75th birthday party, and everyone else is grateful that these precious items arrived in great shape!
