My wife and I wanted to send her parents a huge 2 piece headboard for Christmas. Only one problem...We only had 5 days! So maybe we both sortof procrastinated until our last dieing second. We thought for sure it would never be shipped by then. I called local carriers and called some companies online. They were all expensive and one said "sure, we'll have it there by Christmas...2008! (the earliest was mid. January) I then found USHIP.com I was hesitant to fill in my info and set up an account. I wasn't very convinced since I had already basically concluded we wouldn't get our huge shipment from Vegas to Washington State by Christmas. I filled in my info anyway and we made plans to give my wife's parents a card that said "your present is coming in January". Hours later I got online and found an email from USHIP saying I had some offers. They had come in only minutes after I posted my ad. I replied instantly and got a really good price. A company called Mover's Unlimited showed up in Vegas, the owner himself loaded up our shipment, drove to Washington state and we had the boxes under the tree (ok,next to the tree, they are huge) 2 days BEFORE Christmas! USHIP has some good hook-ups! They got us connected instantly with a company we would have never found. We got crazy fast shipping at a price much less than anyone else was willing to do.
I still wake up every morning and do the "I love USHIP" dance, in my ninja undies.
