My parents had purchased their first home in mid-1959, and with the thought of hosting their first Thanksgiving family feast, they had antique cherry tables made into one large, drop-leaf table. It debuted at Thanksgiving dinner 1959. This table was recently bestowed to me from my mother. I needed to get this table, made from the two tables which now date over 100 years old, to my wonderful Colorado mountain home. Johnny Express gave me peace of mind with my family pieces. He also transported dining chairs and my mother's 50 year old cedar chest, all of which were passed to me. These heartwarming, nostalgic pieces are wonderful to see in my home, thanks to Johnny's tender, loving care. uShip enabled me to find a great match for my shipping needs and budget. In coming years, I will be taking possession of additional heirlooms as my mother passes them along. I will again use uShip and hope that Johnny's Express is available. I loved not having to entrust a few items to a driver of a large moving van, where they would be amidst whole households of furniture and items. John's cargo van is the perfect vehicle for small shipments.
