I'm recovering from a severe illness and am looking forward to mowing my own yard this summer after several years of health struggles. Unfortunately, said health struggles have left me guarding every penny, and I have to be resourceful with every purchase. My Aunt and Uncle worked with my Mother to ship me a used riding mower that needed a good home, and I came to uShip via a recommendation from a friend to get it shipped economically. I was able to get this mower shipped almost 1,000 miles, cheaper than buying locally!!! This was my first experience with uShip and was a very positive one. Charles from Valtrans happened to be local to my Aunt and Uncle, and was great to work with. The kids and I cruised around the yard on the mower tonight before bed. Nothing more fun than a new toy! Tomorrow will mark my re-entry into the functioning world with a small victory- mowing my own yard for the first time in many years.
