I bought a steelcase desk as a birthday gift for my girlfriend and then realized, "how am I ever going to get this beast from Santa Barbara to San Diego? It's going to cost a FORTUNE!" Then I found UShip. I plugged in the details... 30" high, 60" long, 150 lbs... YIKES! I submitted my shipment for bids, expecting the worst. The first bid confirmed my worst fear. I called my girlfriend... "You better get your buddy's pick-up and some bungy cords" More bids started hitting my mailbox. Fast. Each one beating out the one before. The price dropped and dropped and then dropped again. I started communicating with the bidders. The responses were clear and detailed. It was so easy and the prices kept dropping! In record time I had a winning bid that was so low, my jaw dropped. "Cancel the truck and the bungy cords, we're getting white-glove delivery!" The desk was delivered on time, in perfect condition and the experience couldn't have been any better. I will use UShip again in a heartbeat. FANTASTIC!
