I intended to ship a leather chair from my home in Connecticut to my son in California. I had numerous bids right after I signed up with uShip. Some of the bidders never panned out. I remember one shipper was trying to sign me up right away but did not give a formal bid price when I asked for it. When PennAntiques(43) send their bid I tried again and to my surprise, they really did play by the rules and were extremely helpful throughout the whole process. I recommend them highly.
