My husband surprised me with a rocking chair on the first night home with our first born over thirty years ago. The thing is, is that he left for a number of hours and I was mad at him for being gone. When he then showed up with the chair, which he had to go out of town to get. Of course I felt very stupid and realized he was a pretty terrific guy for going out of his way to get that special chair we had seen together months before but could not afford. I rocked all of my childeren in that same chair. My eldest daughter just gave birth to her first child and asked if she could have the chair. Of course I said yes but did not know how I would get it to her being so far away. Someone told me about U-Ship and I decided to give it a try. Rodney called me and gave me no reason to worry about my precious chair. When he arrived at my home he wrapped it very well, as we disused where it was going and why. He assured me there was nothing to worry about. He even was able to keep the secret from my daughter for me. (I had not told her it was coming) I had told him just to say he had a package to deliver if he needed to confirm anything with them for delivery. He was very respectful and prompt in his delivery across country. The chair arrived to the surprise of my daughter. Now my grandchild is being rocked in the same chair that I hope someday will be delivered to her door to her surprise. It is a wonderful tradition that we have started with the help of U-ship and Rodney. Thank You Rodney for your great care in delivering our package.
