We were getting a pair of Theo Koch Barber chairs (antiques valued at around $5K a piece) from my wifes parents in Denver. We live in Springfield, IL and the chairs are just over 300lbs a piece. They are very solid and made in the early 1900's. We had no idea how to get them here and were going to have fly out, rent a uhaul, and drive them here ourselves spending about $1100. I found UShip, got in touch with Rob of "The Moving Co." and had them packed, loaded, shipped, unpacked and placed in my basement in a couple of days for about $400! My wife is happy, my in-laws are happy, and therefore I am allowed to be happy. Thank you so much UShip, you saved me a ton of time, money, backache.
