moving small printing presses is a problem. They are often damaged in transit by common carrier due to the unique nature of their design and the lack of skill packagers among the amateur market. Through UShip, I was able to find an independent carrier who could - and did - offer the personalized service such a move requires - and at a price well within reason - and much less than the cost would have been to build an indestructible crate that would have survived the common-carrier handling. Thank you, UShip, for making this possible. It's a great service and I will check with UShip for all my future transport needs - large and small.
