I had purchased a large two piece cupboard and a 19th century grandfather clock from a local antique house. Normally my husband and I would handle the moving ourselves, but I had foot surgery earlier in the week and was on crutches so we needed to outsource the pick up and delivery. The auction house requires pick up of any won items within 3 business days of the auction so I needed to find a shipper that could not only pick up and deliver within a tight timeframe, but also be experienced in transporting fragile antiques. I contacted the shipping company recommended by the auction house for a quote, but never received a response. I found uship on-line and posted my shipment. I received several offers within hours, all of which were competitive, and all of which were less than what I was quoted over the phone by the shipper recommended by the acution house. Although I could have continued to try to negotiate a lower price by allowing the shippers to continue to bid against each other, I decided to accept the offer by Professional Piano Movers ("PPM"). PPM had received a number of positive feedback comments from customers with similiar type shipments as mine and were very timely in their response. My items were delivered yesterday. David and creq
