I had been quoted a shipping price by UPS to ship a 46" TV from ST.Louis to Portland. I made arrangements to get my TV there. (I am single, female, drive a small convertible car) When I got there, the counter person said everything was ok, the gentlemen that brought my TV left. During the paperwork, they dropped the, "this isn't going to ship normal mail" bomb on me, told me my TV wasn't packed properly, they would have to repack. (My TV was in the original packing from the factory and packing materials in excellent shape) and that it would have to go freight. Base shipping quote for that service=$1500. $500 was packing. Now they quoted me $175 on the phone and I thought it would be more than that, so I brought $350 (All the money I had). When they told me, I cried. I had no way to get my TV back home, no place to store it etc and I had to leave to travel to Oregon for the new job. What a conundrum! I got on line, found UShip and placed a request for quote. 15 minutes later, I had many offers to choose from, but Jay from Evergreen Motorsports, gave me a quote within my budget. He picked up my TV. We scheduled a delivery date. He delivered and saved me and my TV! My TV arrived in perfect condition. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Jay!
