After my Dad passed we cleared his house to sell it and brought items we wanted to keep to our house. My daugther wanted a long wooden buffet but it would not fit in the back of her truck to take from Chicago to Kentucky.
I found uship online and the service was very intuitive. You put a description of your shipping item (+ weight, measurements), where you want it to go, where to pick up and how it is, or should be, packed. You add your "bid by" date or deadline (and maximum cost if you want to). The bid is placed to member shippers and you get the responses to select from. Shippers have histories with consumer feedback ratings that I particularly liked.
uship is the go-between for you and the shipper and charges a percentage. The service worked very well for me and I would recommend it. We found someone who just happened to be going in that direction with some extra space in the truck so we got a great deal. My daughter was thrilled and the service quality and communication we got from the shipper was excellent.
