I shipped an antique, heirloom rocking chair from CT to NC so that it could be returned to a direct descendant of the original owner. Depsite being very nervous about sending this antique with a stranger, I had no other way to send it. After a few weeks of posting on Uship, D&K Services submitted a bid that was reasonable. The first attempt to arrange for a pick up wasn't successful, but the second attempt, a few weeks later was flawless. Mr. Klemm provided a direct telephone number to contact him at any time about the shipment, he made follow up calls to me to ensure that everything was set for the pick up and assured me that there would be no damage to the chair and that it would arrive safely. Although I agreed to no certain delivery date, I was tremendously imprseed that, after being unable to get in touch with me, the company passed up another job that would have changed the transport route to ensure that they met a reasonable delivery date. After arrival of the chair, the receipient stated that the delivery was flawless. She was totally enthralled with the personality and professionalism of the driver. There was no rushing of the delivery, he spent time talking about the shipping business, showed her the truck and some of the unique cargo, and helped her procure and peice of equipment that he had and she needed but couldn't locate. An absolute pleasant ending to this experience. I would definately use D&K Services again and, if this experience is anything like that of others, I would not hesitate to use Uship again.
