When my beloved father passed away, I inherited some antique furniture. Living across the nation, I decided to keep it stored at my sisters. We just purchased a home, and I wanted to get the furniture out here in the east from the west coast. I used uShip, but was discouraged that usual price to ship such things across country was 3x what it was worth! I got a bid in a few weeks from Myers Trucking who had a douly pickup and trailer for a fraction of what others were bidding. I took a chance, and liked the fact it was a small business owner. I now have my sentimental piece from my father, and am very happy with the delivery. I am pleased that uShip brings bids from all kinds of shippers, not just the big commercial ones.
