We recently moved to a new house in Tampa Florida and some of our old furniture did not fit or was not going to work out in our new space.  One piece in particular was a oak desk that had been hand crafted by my brother.  My new house had a built in desk and the piece was really too large to put into a bedroom, yet I couldn't bear to part with it.  I also couldn't bear to sell it since it truely belonged in the family.  While exporing on the internet, I came across the UShip website and decided to ask my other family members  if they had any interest in the desk. ; My sister in Washington, DC said she would love to have it so even though I was scared to death, I put it out to bid as well as a bedroom set that I also wanted to give to her.  I got several bids. ; Some did not work out timing wise. ; One did not work out because of loading/unloading issues.  But one worked out perfectly.  For a very reasonable fee, I was able to ship my treasures safely to their new home. ; It was very easy and secure.  I would use UShip again in an instant.  -Sue  (Tampa, FL)
