I had to quickly make arrangements for shipment of the sofa and buffet to my home in Northern Virginia. My brother had been keeping them for me in his garage in San Antonio, TX, but needed the space. I was a bit discouraged because when I asked for estimates from large companies like Freight Center and Transit Systems, I felt their prices were too high. Then I stumbled across uShip and I am so glad I did! I was a little bit nervous about using an online shipping service, but once I started, I loved the ease of making arrangements. I am deaf and this was such a great way for me to handle everything without ever having to use the phone. I really liked that I was able to read reviews about each shipper that made a bid, and these reviews were a huge factor in my selection of Mr. Blake to pick up and deliver my furniture. He lived up to his glowing reviews. He was very nice and did an excellent job of wrapping my furniture and keeping it safe during the transit. I will use him again if I ever need to ship anything from Texas again. I will definitely use uShip again if I need to find a shipper in other locations. I saved $400 by using uShip. Thank you!
