I purchased (actually stole) two pieces of furniture on ebay. Being new to both ebay and shipping, I felt a bit queezy when I realized I bought a bed and nightstand in a town 1800 miles away for a ridiculous amount WITHOUT thinking about how I was going to get it home! The sellers were not offering a shipper and I showed major signs of stress. I was not going to renig on the purchase so decided I would bite the bullet and do my best to figure out how to get it here, even considered renting a truck myself and heading out. The seller was wonderful! Realizing I was out of my league in thinking I could do it myself, she got online to friends and then suggested I contact UShip. What a truly remarkable company! The best thing since my Hooker bedroom set!!! Not only was I provided a list of shippers and quotes, the shipper I selected was so amicable to my distress, they too became part of my miracle!! I stole a bedroom set from a seller in Florida for my handicapped sister then found the ideal couple who loved it all the way home! THANKS SO MUCH for being available to us neophytes as well as ebay pros. By the way... I have a brother who is the safety and compliance officer for a truckline in Arkansas, he couldn't believe the prices and service I received. To be honest, he quoted me a price 3 times the amount I settled on, and that was a family discount! Will ONLY use this shipper for future shipments. In fact, my brother is willing to relocate!!
