I originally thought I would ship the dining room set with a major mover, but the cost was $1200.00--I was able to use U-ship and it was only $500.00 to ship from KY to MA. It was picked up in a timely fashion and delivered a day ahead of schedule. There were no problems with damage or breakage. I would highly recommend using their services. As a matter of fact, I have already past the Uship website on to another friend.
