Our daughter is going to have our first grandchild in Sept. We wanted to ship the crib she used as a baby to her in Phoenix. The crib had been built by her dad so it has sentimental value. Shipping is expensive, so she suggested Uship. We did and immediately connected with GWL Transport. While we were shipping the crib, we thought why not ship a couple of model railroad cars too? The cost to ship the crib and two 1-1/2" scale RR cars using GWL was less than half of what it would cost if we drove the stuff out there ourselves in our own pickup truck. Local movers wouldn't do it for less that $1000, and to rent a u-haul truck one way and fly home was even more than that. GWL gave a very reasonable bid and would be passing by right near us in a day or so. We acted quickly and accepted their bid. They arrived at the place of pick up in the time frame promised and delivered in the same manner. They were very courteous and polite, making sure we were very comfortable with their service. Everything was loaded and unloaded carefully and protected during the shipment. They formed a schedule at the onset and kept us informed of their progress throughout the entire movement. They made this shipment possible and affordable. They delivered the merchandise like they said they would. In a world that one has to be skeptical, I can assure you I never felt that way dealing with GWL. It was like the old days when a deal was sealed with a handshake. Both sides did their part. This was very refreshing. There is no question that the next time I need something moved I will use Uship. The funny thing about this is the crib didn't need to be there until September, but five days after learning about Uship and posting a shipment for bid the crib is already at its destination; a 1,200 mile trip. Pretty slick I'd say. Way to go. Life doesn't always have to be a hassle! This was easy street to be sure.
