I needed to ship 5 large pieces of furniture from LA to Portland. Going through referrals from friends/family, the lowest price I could find was $1000! I did a quick search on line and found uShip, and decided to try it out. Within a day I had three bids: two for $800 and one that let me name my own price. The moral of the story: I got my goods shipped up me for $650 safely and within the week.
I didn't know about uShip before, but wow...what a great service! I'm impressed and I will definitely be back next time I need something shipped.
