I needed to ship an antique corner cupboard from my mother-in-law in the Washington DC area to my house in Kentucky. Most moving companies will not handle a single item, or else they will charge an arm and two legs.
With uShip, I was able to find the other companies that are able to consolidate multiple small shipments and thus spread their cost and reduce their price. In fact, one of them kept sending lower and lower bids as they accumulated more items for the trip! That could happen only with a service like uShip.
Having multiple positive reviews available gave me confidence that the service provider would be able to perform as advertised. And it turned that he did. My corner cupboard was picked up on time and delivered ahead of schedule with plenty of communication throughout the whole process.
I will definitely use uShip again and wish I had known about it for some of my past moves. I think this would be a great service for eBay-type shipments.
