I had been trying to find a company to ship a bookshelf from Wichita,KS to Seattle,WA. All the major shipping companies seemed quite cold, and extrememly pricey!! I started to "google" around and stumbled upon u-ship. I tend to be quite leary about online companies, especially one I hadn't heard about before. And I definitely have no prior knowledge about shipping. My husbands Father and Mother-in-law have recently passed and before they died wanted to make sure we would someday reclaim the bookshelf that my husband had made them as a gift 30 years ago. U-ship walked me right through the process, and to my surprise I got a bid about a day later! And it beat any other shipping company I had called by more than half. I was able to contact our Wichita relatives and get the ball rolling, on my terms. I loved the fact that I got to call all the shots, not the shipping company. Our service provider was so amazing. I had many fun phone calls with them, and felt a comfort level right away! A very special part of my husbands past was being shipped and our providers really put us at ease. I had total trust in them. Plus, paying on delivery made me feel at ease as well. Our service providers are from Iowa, and this happened to be where my husbands father was born. Just a little fact that we enjoyed. We would definitely use u-ship again, and I have told many others about it already!
