I had sold my house and put my things into storage. Having had an astronomical quote from a relocation firm I decided to use self-store and move my things in gradually. We were going to hire a van and move the stuff down ourselves, until I read about uShip in a news article. I didn't quite believe that the system would work, but lo and behold the bids started coming in almost immediately. The good thing is that you can look at feedback from other users before you accept. The guys who moved my stuff were incredible. They packed the van and then drove 300 miles to my new home, unpacked and put everything in the relevent rooms, even putting my furniture together! I think I saved around £1500 and would definately use uShip again and also reccommend it to friends.
