We got a great deal on a sleek range for our kitchen renovation - the only catch was that it was at an outlet store 180 miles away that didn't offer delivery. We looked at renting a truck and picking it up ourselves, but for convenience we also decided to see what we could find using freight shipping.
We were very pleasantly surprised to find that a bid we received on U-Ship - the more convenient option - was more economical than hauling the item ourselves. And as the shipper was already traveling our route with another shipment, it made it a "greener" option for him to add our item onto his truck as he came our way than us making our own round trip.
Freight shipping saved us time and money, and the service was impeccable. We would use this option again and recommend it to others.
