I used uShip for the first time last week and was overwhelmingly impressed with both the uShip concept and the service provider, Authorized Carrier/Gary Giaconi. I was shipping 9 pieces of family furniture (including a triple dresser and heavy iron pot belly stove) from the Chicago area to my daughter in Los Angeles who had just moved into her first home and finally had room for our family "treasures." Gary carefully wrapped and taped everything in blankets and boxed a fragile glass top for a triple dresser. Because his big truck could not make it down my narrow, curvy side street, he had to leave his truck parked on the shoulder of the main road. He then made 9 separate trips, walked each and every piece on a professional dolly from my garage down my street to where he left his truck, 1/2 mile, in the rain! It was truly service above and beyond. Plus he showed up and delivered on time. And he is a heck of a nice guy too. I saved $1,100 between what a major moving company quoted me and Gary's charge. uShip rocks!
