Thanks to all for a fantastic, successful shipment. I shipped a beautiful 130 year old, 600 pound antique German sideboard, 8 feet tall, 7 feet long. It's a family heirloom that I recently inherited from a parent. My parents lived in Houston, and I had to move it to my home in Virginia. I thank uShip for making it possible for me to find Legal Transportation Company. I simply cannot imagine any better service, and I think the shipping cost was a superb value. uShip made it easy for me to describe exactly what I needed in service and scheduling. Legal was extremely professional at all levels. I'm happy to endorse them. The crew that drove the truck and manually prepared the sideboard, loaded, unloaded, and reassembled the two components: Were as careful as if the sideboard were their own. It's oversized and heavy, and frankly I was amazed at the men's skill in doing everything right. They were imaginatively successful in figuring out every challenge. And above all I was impressed with their attention to details. Even a slight mistake would have resulted in serious damage. I was also impressed with their attention to their own personal safety. Finally, Legal's front office provided the most reliable liaison between the crew and me...with timely telephone and email communications throughout the process. BRAVO! I will use uShip (and Legal if they are available) in the future if the need arises.
