I wanted to ship a grandfather clock from GA to MN but the cost to do so were outragious, over a $1000. For that jprice you could have bought a new clock. The sentimentality of th clock being mine and pased on to my son who loved the clock would have been lost however. I went on line and U ship came up on the google search. I tried my hand at it and decided that I could build the crate for the clock. I inturn had the clock works taken out and shipped seperately at a cost that was much more affordable and insurable. I built the crate and ultimately shipped with uship and the American Group from AZ. I couldn't have been more pleased. I also made arrangements with a commercial business where the clock case was to be more easily picked up since I live in a mountainous area not accessable to Semi trucks for pick-up. I was vary pleased with the experience and would and will be much less intimidated to ship large items through freight lines in the future.
