I purchased fixtures for my optical shop that were in Oregon, I am in Iowa. After getting quotes for shipping the large, bulky, and heavy items I was ready to give up. I placed the ad on the uShip site as my last hope. Sure enough, I got a bid. Not only a bid, a very reasonable bid. I was able to save over $6,000. Mike picked up the shipment that evening and had it ready to deliver ahead of schedule! I would use uShip again, very happily.
