Expecting first grandchild, I wanted my daughter to have the baby cradle that my Grandfather, father, myself and my daughter had slept in each of our early lives. My daughter had accepted a promotion within her company and had relocated from Tampa,Florida to San Francisco prior to her pregnancy. I had no idea how I would be able to get our family heirloom to her house and was very apprehensive as to how it would be cared for in transit. After all, the cradle had been in my family for a century! Surfing the web seeking shipping options, I found uShip! The shipping offers started coming in, however most were cost prohibitive. As the days followed, a bid came in that was affordable. The shipper called and we made an appointment for the pick-up. He was very gracious and courteous as he carefully wrapped each component of the cradle in shipping blankets. However, my heart kind of skipped a beat as my cherished cradle was loaded for shipment. The service provider assured me he would care for the cradle and would have it delivered to my daughter within a matter of days. I suggested to him that he may want to arrange to meet my daughter at a nearby mall parking lot as my daughter lived in the city of San Francisco and the streets are narrow with parked cars and steep hills which may be difficult to navigate pulling a 53' semi trailer. My daughter called me this past Wednesday with such a tone of excitement in her voice. "It's here Mom!!! The cradle is here!! I asked where she met the truck. She replied, "He delivered it right to the door and even carried it up the steps for me!!" I can not say enough about the quality of service that was provided to me and my family. Thank you so very much!!
