I was shipping a dining room set that my aunt who died had willed to me. I had no idea of the weight. Also, no one was living at her house. I got a bid back immediately, within a day, on the U ship site. The large moving companies didn't respond at all even to direct contact. The service provider asked good questions about his bid and about my timing. He needed to coordinate with my sister over the Memorial Day weekend and again with me when he arrived in town and I was in a meeting and didn't get his message until two hours later. I would definitely try U Ship. They meet a market need for small specialized shipments. I would use my provider again too. I am happy to have the dining set that my 93 year old aunt wanted me to have to remember her by.
