I was trying to get a family heirloom delivered to a relative in Arizona. It was a Morris Chair that belonged to my great-grandparents. I contacted several 'pack and ship' places. At the time, I could save money by driving it to a midway point and handing it off to my relatives. Then gas prices jumped up some more. I really didn't want to make that long a drive, and decided I'd see what the Internet could offer. I found the uShip site, listed my item and had an offer in half a day. The chair was delivered nearly a week sooner than promised with no problems or damage, and I saved over $200 off the 'pack and ship' estimate. I will definitely use uShip again, if I have a similar need.
