We held on to that piano for her while she went to college in Italy, moved to Louisiana, made it through Katrina, and finally was able to get her own home. Bids from movers in the usual manner were higher than the cost of the piano, but it was HER piano, that she had bought with her own money when she was 16. We saved over $600 with UShip; the final cost was less than half of the original quotes but the important thing is now she has her beloved piano with her on the other side of the country and we can put our car back in the garage! The movers, Landlift, were great - they understood our concerns, took great care of our shipment, and even though they had to push the piano 7 blocks through the narrow streets of New Orleans, they maintained an upbeat and courteous manner at all times. Thank you, Landlift, and uShip! I see no reason to ship any other way ever again!
