I placed a bid on a washer and dryer combo,not really looking to win. But,as luck would have it, I WON!!!! Now I had to get it from Detroit to little ole Danville, Va. Now I get to use uship for the very first time.Put in a bid... no response. Put in a higher max bid...no response. Now I start sweating.Never used e-bay where I was responsable for the shipment; never used uship period. The seller wanted to know when I would pick the combo up. I could only tell him to be patient I had just listed the washer and dryer on U-ship;give it a few more days and if I didn't get any matches I would have to try something else. And I was open to suggestions. No sooner than all this happened the bids started coming. Not as low as I wanted,but the bids got lower and lower. I locked in on a bid that was $50 more than I wanted to spend. That was alright though , he could pick up that next day and have it at my house the following night. I was worried at first but was the ball got to rolling it went smooth. There was great communication, a professional driver and reasonable shipping. A LOT cheaper than I could do it; and I didn't have to leave the house. THANK YOU U-Ship
