U-ship, where have you been all my life? I've spent the last 2 years trying to look for a reputable yet reasonable moving company to transport my goods from CA to GA. I planned on driving the 26'truck myself until the day after we were set to leave, I got a call saying that our house in GA was not ready (ouch!). We had already packed the truck, emptied out the condo and gave up the keys. The house wouldn't be ready until July. Now we have a filled truck, nowhere to live until July and a very strict budget. So we decided to unload the truck into a storage unit in CA and stay with my aunt and uncle who were gracious enough to let the 4 of us stay with them (23 days). Once we received word the house would be ready the last week of June, we drove my car cross country to GA. Everything we owned was still sitting in storage. We left CA 6/23 a.m and arrived in GA 6/26 a.m. and found that the house still wasn't ready. We spent about a week in a hotel. On 7/2 we moved into our house that was empty for the next 4 months as I tried to look for a reputable yet reasonable moving co. This became a nightmare with all of the scams. I began to procrastinate because I didn't want to deal with it so while on a business trip in CA October 2006, I decided to cancel my return ticket, rent a truck and move the stuff myself. Unfortunately, I could only get a 16' truck so 1/4 of the stuff in storage remained. I didn't want to make that trip again so once again I was on a mission to find a moving co. Still a nightmare, that stuff sat there for 19 more months until I was searching the net and found U-SHIP. U-SHIP does all the work and in a matter of hours reputable (based on U-SHIP required feedback) moving companies were bidding on my shipment. Gustav Trucking got my bid at a very reasonable rate and in a little over a week our stuff was here and in good condition. I can't help but think how much money I would've saved in storage fees-$370/mo. had I found U-SHIP 23 months ago...
