This is the first time I have had to contract an outside company to ship a large item. Due to the inconvienence and freight charges I was being quoted elsewhere, I almost cancelled my transaction with the vendor. In the end, I guessed I liked it enough to give the hassel one last shot. This is when I tried UShip online. The process was not as complicated; it actually turned out to be a rewarding experience. I am happy to get my furniture at a reasonable cost, I am pleased with the shipper's overall service and I am glad I tried UShip. I would recommend and use their sevices again in the future.
