I've had some furniture that had been willed to me, sitting in a garage in St. Louis, MO, for about 6 years. It was just too expensive to ship to California. An on-line acquaintance suggested "uShip" to me and I negotiated with one shipper who cancelled on me. Then I got an offer to ship for my cost and I grabbed it. I was very very happy to get the bedroom suite back together and happy with the whole transaction.
I would definitely use uShip again when I need a shipper!
