I purchased a solid brass ans glass table from a store in PA on December 18th. The salesperson was going to have it shipped out to me at the end of January. I was really disapointed, I wanted my beautiful new table for the holidays. I decided to put it up for bid on USHIP to see what would happen. Being so close to the holidays I did not think I could get it here in time. The evening of 12/18, I put the listing up. The following morning I had three or four bids, one bidder stated he could pick it up and deliver it right away. I accepted his bid , within 12 hours I had my new table in my livingroom, I could not believe it. The shipper was so nice , did a great job and kept me up to date all day long!! Thanks to USHIP I have my table in time for Christmas!! I love this service!!
