My husband works out of state, and while visiting him, I bought an antique treadle sewing machine at a yard sale for $25. I was so excited to purchase it that I never really gave a thought to how I would get it from AZ to NC. I was flying home, so that created a small problem. I heard about u-ship and listed the shipment. Kristi was great, and her shipping rate was more than reasonable. The service and communication were excellent, too. So, it's not a $25 sewing machine anymore, but it's still worth the price!
