I had a rocker that had sentimental (only) value to my mom. It had been her mother's rocker and when Nana died, my mom had intended to bring it back from New York to Ohio. Unfortunately, other family obligations and such prevented her from doing so. I live in Virginia, and hoped perhaps I could go get it, but my life with three kids and a full time teaching job makes it hard to get away AND I would have had to drive 16 hours to get it and then deliver it. I started searching aimlessly on the web, hoping I'd find a cheap alternative. I found U ship and although the first driver did not work out (had an accident), the second one was a miracle. He was SUCH a nice person and I really feel it was like having a trusted friend do you a favor! Not only did he pickup the rocker from my elderly great aunt's home and treat her and her things respectfully, but he delivered the rocker to my mom and even took some time to sit and visit with her a bit, which (along with the surprise of getting the rocker) brightened her day IMMENSELY. I was so happy with the whole experience, and I made a new friend too. What more could I ask??? I have now recommended this service to many people and wouldn't hesitate to use it again.
