My grandmother is terminally ill and was recently moved into hospice care. Her apartment in Pittsburgh had to be emptied as soon as possible so that the money for the rent could be put toward her continued care. She had always promised some sentimental items to me - one of them being the hopechest my grandfather bought for her before they got married back in the 1920's. She was stressed and upset about having to leave her home, but even more so at the idea that her things wouldn't get passed down as she wished. I have three very small kids and live in Georgia. The logistics involved in me being able to drive to Pittsburgh and bring the things back myself were just daunting (and expensive). The prices at other sites were just ridiculously high and no one could move the items within the timeframe I needed (the following 2 days...) uShip really stepped up to the plate. It was fast, easy and amazingly pleasant. The shipper I wound up using was so friendly. He understood the sentimental value as well as the time crunch involved. He also understood that with three small kids we also had budgetary concerns. He gave me a super fair price and communicated every step of the way. (He was so great that a few other family members plan to utilize his services for other things) My items arrived when he said they would and they look great. I was so happy to see them and the memories that they invoke, that I almost cried right there. Thanks uShip for making a sad time in my life a little easier - and for helping me to honor my grandmother's wishes. You're great.
