I have a second home in Florida and periodically send small shipments (like 30 boxes) there from my house in DC. I had been using people on Craig's List who were moving or had a truck with space, but one of these canceled on me at the last minute in November. After I objected to the rude behavior, the person suggested I try uShip. I had a load of similar boxes so it was easy to describe. I put the ad on uShip and had several offers within a few hours. And these were professional shippers, not someone with a truck. I've told several friends and hope it works as well when I need to send some items that are more varied in content.
