My mother had my great grandmothers furniture in her possesion.  It is a loveseat, rocking chair, and a chair bought in the early 1800's.  I always liked the set while growing up and she told me I could have it someday.  Well my parents were ready to have me take the furniture, but I live in Utah and they live in Missouri.  We couldn't fit the pieces into our car and renting a truck and driving with the mileage costs and gas costs made getting this furniture practically impossible.  We had been trying to find some way of doing this for approximately 10 years.  One day I was surfing the net when I found the Uship site. ; It was a dream come true. ; I listed my furniture and waited a week with no results.  I then requested some bids from places that had good feedback and then I got results.   We accepted the bid from TransitSystems and they were simply wonderful to work with. ; They called within a week and I had to put them off a week because I wasn't ready to ship! ; They were fine with that and they called me back a week later just as they said they would.  The furniture was picked up in Missouri and 3 weeks later I had it here in Utah for an outstanding price.  TransitSystems did everything just as promised.  I would definately use them again and would work with Uship again if the need arises.
