We needed to get a queen bed, memory foam mattress, and nightstand from my sister's house in Texas to mine in Louisiana. We spent days investigating ways to get the furniture moved (FedEx, UPS, U-Haul) but everything was either too expensive or time-consuming. Then I stumbled upon uShip in a wiki article about how to move furniture. I created an account and posted a shipment bid request. Within minutes I had my first bid. I listed the bid for 7 days since we were very flexible about times - after all, this was guest room furniture. I eventually received the winning bid from Accurate Moves by Mike. Mike worked with me over email on a couple of questions we each had. I accepted his bid the night before the move. I was not to be disappointed. Mike picked up the furniture on-time, disassembled the pieces, packaged everything appropriately, delivered it to my house in Lousiana, and re-assembled the furniture without damage and exactly where we wanted it. While uShip was slightly more expensive than picking up the furniture myself, uShip saved my 7-months-pregnant wife and I from a 10-hour round trip trapped in a rented delivery truck or cargo van. We would have lost an entire weekend to making the drive over, disassembling the furniture, loading it up as best we could with limited supplies, driving back, and then having to reassemble the furniture - all on our own. And for saving me that hassle, I'll gladly pay just a little more. I would gladly use uShip again the next time I need moving services of any kind. Thanks to Accurate Moves by Mike for a great move and to uShip for putting us in contact with each other, Brandon
