We live in NYC but purchased a sofa in Tulsa, OK because it was on sale. Part of our purchase cost included the shipping charges, which we had agreed with a mover who we had used for a previous job. After we paid for the sofa the mover decided not to take on the job so we were stuck, because all of the larger moving firms we contacted wanted more money for the shipment than we could afford. Fortunately, we managed to find an excellent service at a reasonable cost through uship. Thanks!
