Hi all. I had an excellent first experience using uShip to solicit a mover to ship a one bedroom sized amount of furniture and items from a storage unit in downtown Boston to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina during the month of June 2008. I had a number of heavy boxes of books, clothing, a mountain bike, old school 40 inch tube TV, solid oak book shelf, glass and metal TV stand, various lamps, dishes, pots and pans. I was making a move from a storage unit to an apartment and the difficulty for me was that my belongings needed to arrive BEFORE I did! Having never shipped items across state lines like this, uShip gave me the latitude to solicit bids and compare them to any number of alternatives I could have used. In the end, I used LEGAL TRANSPORTATION INC for my move and they were excellent! When I compared the cost to add my items to a shipment already heading to Florida they bid on my request for versus renting a UHaul or other truck or using another shipping company, I saved more than $400 on my overall expenses and was able to fly direct to my destination to meet my items there! The staff were great to work with and the only minor issue was a humidifier and vacuum that never made it to my final destination. All of my other items made it in great condition!
I would definitely use uShip again for my next move!
