I was combing through craigslist looking for rare antiquities last week when I stumbled across a piece by one of my favorite furniture manufacturers. Unfortunately it was in Michigan and I was in Dallas and the fact that it was the size as an NFL linebacker meant it wouldn't be cheap to get it here. I went out on a limb and bought the piece not knowing how much I would have to end up paying for shipping. I just knew that I needed to secure the deal. My next great idea was to try U-Ship! Certainly there was someone out there already traveling this route that wanted to make a little extra road money. So I listed my shipment with what I felt was an honest man's target price and the very next morning I had a bid from "gibob". He picked up the shipment the following day and had it here in less than 48 hours. I would highly recommend "gibob" to anyone collecting antiques out there. He is a pro and save me well over 50% of what my normal carrier would have charged me. I will definitely use him again and I din't even have to pay extra for 2 day service!
