I had about 6 pieces of furniture and 13 boxes of precious items from my mom's home to transport from St. Louis to New Mexico. My mom died last year, and these items are extremely important to me. It was a small load, but I wanted to be sure that it would be handled carefully. I had always assumed that I'd have to fly to St. Louis, rent a truck, load it myself, drive 950 miles to my home in NM, and hire someone to help me unload. Then I found uShip! I checked on the price of rental trucks, and discovered that it would cost me a lot to fly, pack, drive, unpack and return the truck - and I mean a LOT of money, way more than I'd expected. I got several bids, but when I got Rod's bid I knew I'd found my shipper. The bid was very reasonable -$831.00. Just the smallest rental truck would have cost that much or more. When I read his recommendations which were about 100% in every category, I felt comfortable accepting his bid. After accepting the bid, everything was so EASY. Rod did exactly what he'd committed to, and he and I had a great time on a gorgeous October Sunday morning in New Mexico unloading my things. I'd recommend his service to anyone, and I really appreciate uShip for connecting us. The uShip fee of $14 is one of the best $14s I've ever spent. Thanks!
