We were in Austin for a combined vacation/conference/family visit and never imagined we would buy furniture. Well low and behold we stopped in on a great shop - Uncommon Goods on South Congress St. in Austin and found a great modern sideboard/bookcase for a very fair price. But we knew shipping costs would prove prohibitive. The shop owner agreed, but suggested that we try Uship.com. This was new to us - but we took photos of the item, signed up and posted it on Uship. We paid the small fee for featuring the posting which I think was a good option.After just a few days we had a shipping bid just a little above our ship it now price. Steve and the staff at Uncommon Goods were very helpful and met us early on the pick up day. The service provider, Steve of Stevo Moves was great to work with and the pick up and the delivery went smoothly. We really appreciate the care Steve used in wrapping the furniture to protect from the elements. We had OK'd leaving the items on our front porch. We are extremely happy with our experience with Stevo Moves and with Uship and highly recommend! We would not have our great unique book case/sideboard if not for Uship! The shipping costs would have been totally prohibitive! Thanks Stevo Moves and thanks Uship!
