Family members were going through a foreclosure on their home and offered us a beautiful set of furniture as a gift and to keep it in the family during a difficult transition. They informed us the items had to be moved within 3 weeks, and although we have a truck/trailer, we could not make the trip in that amount of time to secure the items. I posted the info on uship and within less than 24 hours, I had received a number of bids to ship the items, some as quickly as the next day! The prices were right in our range, too. The bids came in so quickly that we couldn't even plan the pick up time as fast as they were available! Once we had a date/time range, I emailed one of the bidders and got an immediate response--luckily, they could work around our timeframe, and I accepted the bid--they were in PA the next day, on time, and to my home in VA within 24 hours--much faster than we could have made it happen on our own! The shippers, ALB transportation, were amazing, very professional and polite, and just great all around.
When all was said and done, it cost us about the same, if not LESS, to use Uship as if we had done it ourselves, but it saved us a TON of time and headache on both ends. The other reason this is so important is that my relative has terminal cancer, and this allowed us to keep something important to him in the family during a very difficult time. Thanks for your service!
