My daughter and I love to go to the antique malls when she is home from college. She has loved antique shopping with me since she was young, and it is a special time for the two of us each time we go! We enjoy walking the aisles and talking about the items we see. Our special items of interest are old china pieces, glass and crystal and any table clothes, dolies and pillow cases that have been made by hand. During her fall break, we found a most wonderful old china breakfront. She fell in love with it immediately and my husband and I bought it for her as her Christmas present. We contacted UShip as we had previously had an excellent experience with UShip. John Horner and his crew from Kansas City worked with us to pick up the large item and carefully deliver it to my daughter. When John picked it up, I told him my daughter might be in class when it was delivered, but that she would have someone there to open the door. I asked them to please center the piece on the designated wall. When my daughter called me after class and had gotten back to her place to see her china closet, she said: "they must have used a ruler Mom, as it is perfectly centered on that wall and in perfect condition, just as it was when they picked it up." I highly recommend John Horner and his crew. They are very Christian, empathetic and care about what they are doing! Sincerely, Meredith
