My mother-in-law suddenly passed away and we had one week to schedule her funeral, clean out her apartment and ship the items we were keeping across the country. As most people would, we panicked knowing we had such short time to get this accomplished. All we wanted to ship was a large cedar chest. We called two well-known trucking/moving companies. We were quoted between $1200-$1500 to move this one item and we were told they couldn't pick it up for 2 weeks. That just wouldn't work, so Google became my friend as I looked for other options. UShip showed up in my Google search and I thought "what the heck, let's give it a try" so I created an account and advertised by item. Within minutes I had several bids. The UShip system called me with an automated message to let me know I had bids so I didn't have to keep checking back. All the shippers quoting were incredibly responsive and one shipper (misterfigs) was able to give me a reasonable quote ($125), was able to pick it up within 2 days. He was an absolutely JOY to work with and made the UShip experience the highlight of our week. I will definitely use UShip again for anything large that I need to ship, and I will definitely use Gaetano (misterfigs) again. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
