I had bought 2 big and heavy pieces of furniture from a colleague and did not have much time to organise the shipment from their home to mine. I was originally not thrilled with using the online bid (not much confidence I would receive any bid, and how reliable would that be) but pressed by time I submitted my order. The site forces you to put the necessary details that would prevent unpleasant surprises (e.g. size and weight). Important info giving re. the fact that with pictures you attract more bids. Well I could not believe that within minutes I had several bids. I liked the fact that you can ask questions and receive answers from your bidders to clarify whether worth accepting. I am not sure that I really saved a lot (~30 US$), I did not take the lowest bidder but the one who answered very quickly and could do the job on the Saturday 2 days later (convenience was very important for me) and the friendliness of the bidder also played a role. Cody did a great job, taking good care of my furniture, being professional & friendly. Yes I would use uShip again
