My daughter had taken my very nice set of dining furniture to Utah when she moved to a large home there. When she moved again to a smaller home she rented a storage space for it. The quotes that I got from companies to ship the set back to California were about $1100. I saw the uShip site on Google and decided to try a listing. Within a day I had 2 service providers bidding on the shipment and both were ready to handle the job immediately. The uShip site allowed thorough communication with the bidders prior to selection. The provider that I selected adjusted their pick up and delivery dates to meet my needs and stayed in better communication than any national trucking line I have ever worked with. The price ended up being about 30% of the other quotes I had recieved, the quality was excellant, and the shipment arrived in perfect condition. The delivery guys even took off their shoes every time they came through my front door! They carefully set everything up and also carried some other furniture to my garage for me. The whole process from listing the shipment to delivery took less than a week. What a pleasant surprise this experience was, and I will certainly go back to uShip when I have something else to transport.
