I contacted NUMEROUS shipping companies, but they were very expensive and could not guarantee that my table would arrive in one piece. I fell into great luck when "uShip" appeared in my search. I posted my item and received a bid from Robert Benedict within an hour! Robert was so friendly and professional that any fear I had was put at ease. I was afraid to use a small company that wasn't well known. Well, I have never had easier communication with a KNOWN service provider! He answered all of my questions, & when I had a question after our phone conversation, he contacted me as soon as I left him a message. He assured me that he would pack up the item so it wouldn't break. He assured me that his moving truck was enclosed in case of foul weather. The pick-up was a bit of a potential problem in that the person worked and didn't want to sit home waiting for a pick-up. Robert solved the issue with ease. He called her at her office when he was near the location and she and he arrived within minutes of each other! No waiting time for either of them! He contacted me when he made the pick-up and again assured me that the table would arrive safely. He gave me a few days period in which I could expect the delivery and he called exactly on time. I never had to check in with him. I never had to wait for him to return calls. He was right on top of everything. I knew he would unpack the item, but never in my wildest dreams did I expect that he would actually set it up for me! He did that perfectly as well! He is so personable and responsible that I will be using him for any shipping I will ever need. When we were chatting as he was leaving, he told me the names of a few stores that had items similar to my taste. I really appreciated this, since I rarely find pieces that I like by just searching around. He even told me I could contact him if I needed something I couldn't find! What an amazing experience!!! I trust him with all my shipping needs! THE BEST!
