This was a big high-quality carpet, at 10 x 14' I would not have been able to transport it on my Subaru Outback. I checked out U-Haul and then checked uShip; the bids I got were more-or-less equal to or less than U-Haul would have been, plus I considered my time and trouble. The guy who won the bid got it not only because of his price but because he had an enclosed truck bed. He was friendly on the phone and ended up providing exactly the service I needed, in the timeframe promised. I only regret that he tweaked his back carrying in the carpet. I would use this service again in a heartbeat!
