I put a bid on Uship for a beautiful heirloom couch that my family has called the "pineapple couch" for years. I inherited it from my grandmother but have not had a place for it in my house, and so we decided my uncle should have it. The only hitch is that he lives in Indiana and we live in Montana. So the pineapple couch has been in various storage units for several years before I finally heard about Uship and decided to give it a try. We had a few bids, at least one of which was outside our price range and one that was good but I couldn't reach my uncle in time to confirm that half of the arrangements. I extended the listing, and immediately afterward Bobdelivers put in a very reasonable bid. I asked some questions that he answered very promptly, and I accepted the bid. Bob headed our way promptly, and arrived in timely fashion despite a very minor bit of truck trouble; he stayed in close touch the entire time so I never had to wonder where he was or when he was coming. He got into town and hit Main Street right as the Homecoming Parade was in full swing! He and my husband loaded the pineapple couch, got it protected and secured, and after a bit of friendly conversation, off they went. The couch arrived in Indianapolis right on schedule, in perfect condition. My aunt and uncle were pleased as can be to have it, and enjoyed visiting with Bob and his son. All in all, it was a great experience! A precious family item was in the hands of a regular guy that I could talk to and keep in touch with, and was delivered in great shape, on time, and at a very reasonable price.
