I had to clean out my mother's home in another state and had a wooden chest I wished to keep shipped back to my home state. I found the USHIP site and entered a listing and immediately received inquiries and bids. One of the bidders was in my home state and the bid was as cheap as trying to box the chest up and ship it UPS but without all the hassle that comes with that.
Coors72 was my service provider and you couldn't ask for a better shipper. He maintained constant contact as to his location, time of arrival, etc. so I was never in the dark wondering if someone was going to show up. During the packing, I found a couple of other large items ( another blanket chest and a large table top) that I desired that would also require shipping and when the shipper arrived, he accepted the extra load at a very reasonable price. All items were blanket wrapped and stacked with care and arrived to my destination safely. These were items that had more sentimental than monetary value and I wanted them to be handled with care which they definitely were. Again, kudos to Coors72 for realizing that.
I would use USHIP and especially Coors72 again without hesitation and recommend to anyone reading this to do the same. It can be daunting trying to locate a dependable provider to move items across the state or the country at a fair price and I have found USHIP to far outweigh other venues on the internet for locating a 'tried and true' shipper. GO USHIP!!
