I owned a sofa that I loved, but it was really too large for my current space. While the sofa was nearly 10 years old, it was still like brand new, I really wanted to find someone that would enjoy it. The style was a little "eclectic" and never meant for the mass market. I was recently sharing family photos with out of state family members, when my aunt commented on how much she liked the sofa. Knowing we had already ordered a replacement sofa, this seemed like the perfect oportunity to give the old sofa to someone that would appreciate it's "eclectic" style. How do you get a sofa 900 miles without spending more than the sofa is worth? I called a shipping company, but they wanted the sofa crated. What? That wasn't going to happen. I placed the shipment on uShip.com and the offers began to roll in. I was overwhelmed and didn't accept any of the offers initially, but after a few days I offered again, and Cardinal517 bid for the 2nd time. I immediately accepted, since the new sofa was on it's way and I had no idea what to do with the old sofa. When Mary arrived the following morning, there were "issues" to get the sofa into the shipping trailer, but Mary was willing to go beyond the call of duty to get that sofa into her trailer. Wow, what a beautiful, clean, plush trailer . . . try finding that with a furniture shipper. The sofa was gently placed, protected and secured in the trailer as Mary pulled away. I had contact with Mary both days she was in transit, and she kept me advised of her location and expected deliver day and time. The constant communication made it SO EASY to schedule the delivery on the other end. My aunt LOVES her new sofa, and I think Mary created the most wonderful shipping experience I could have imagined. Do not hesitate to use this shipper, the entire experience was amazing! Thank You for a trouble free shipping experience!
