Our family cradle which is over 150 years old was shipped from Arlington, VA and Asheville, NC. The cradle cannot be disassembled because of its age so standard shipping was out of the question. I looked into renting a "POD" which would have cost me several hundred dollars!
I was pleasantly surprised with uShip and happened upon it by accident. "Dumbclub" delivered my cradle to me safe-and-sound and I will most definitely use his services again should I need to do so.
