If you have just a large single item or two to ship, this is the way to go! By "piggybacking" with other customers/ shippers, you will save $$$. They picked up an antique table at my front door, wrapped it all up, and got it to my son's house halfway across the country. If your're specific in your instructions and understand the delivery times promised, it beats paying full vanline costs. Nice people to work with -- I'd deflinitely use uShip again!
