My 84-year-old mother recently moved into a retirement apartment and I had to figure out how to get the family furniture that she wanted me to have from Texas to Mississippi. I looked into moving companies, u-haul trucks, etc. and it was all too expensive. I stumbled onto "U-ship" while researching other avenues and thought I'd give it a try. I was surprised when I got a bid for about half of what it would have cost to ship the traditional ways. I was a little skeptical of entrusting irreplaceable items (including a box of antique sterling silver that had belonged to my great grandmother) to a stranger. But after looking at the feedback on-line about Oceans2Oceans, I decided to give it a try. Chris was so helpful. He called me almost every day to give me an update. When he arrived at my sister's home in Texas, she was taken by how polite and professional he was. She said she felt fine putting the items on that truck. He called me to let me know when he would be here and showed up when he said (actually, earlier)! I would recommend Oceans2Oceans to anyone who is looking for an easy way to ship items. I'm sure I'll need their services again between Texas and Mississippi and will not hesitate to call Chris. Thank you!
