My mom left me a vintage Chinese chest. It had very detailed and intricate carvings on top and four sides. I needed to have it shipped from LA to my home in Northern Washington. I found another on-line shipping service, and booked it, but they could not tell me when they were coming to pick it up. This was very unsatisfactory due to our time line. I canceled that shipment and I found UShip using google. The transportation companies on UShip were all very responsive regarding my scheduling needs. The hard part was picking a service I would feel comfortable with. Based on the number of reviews and their specialty with packaging delicate objects, I accepted a from Winpackaging. I got to speak with Mark of Winpackaging right away, we scheduled the pick-up at a time that best suited my situation. Mark came on time. It was delivered to my home. The driver, Robert of RL trucking was great to work with to accommodate delivery times. My family heirloom weighing 300 lbs arrived in a wooden crate, which was more protection than some of the other bidders offered. This type of service could easily cost over $700. I only paid $450. UShip and Winpackaging made a potentially worrisome experience into a happy one. I would definitely go to UShip again for my shipping and moving needs. I could be more satisfied with the level of professional, courteous and friendly service.
