My daughter graduated from college and was off to California to start her career search. She rented a room in a house with four other young ladies. The shared rooms were all furnished, but her bedroom was empty. We had a new mattress set that we bought her when she was a college senior. How to get it to California from Michigan? We found uShip and received several bids. Kravut gave us a reasonable bid, we accepted, and set up a pick-up date/time. The guys came, brought the mattress/box spring and frame up from my basement and carefully loaded. They noted that they had more room, did I need anything else shipped. I mentioned that I had a dresser and headboard for the bed. We agreed to a price--which was very reasonable--and they loaded those items as well--wrapping the dresser carefully. On the delivery side, they thought that they could get the items to my daughter by the weekend, but it actually was Monday, which was okay. We were in contact with the truck during the weekend, so we knew the status of the shipment. On Monday, they arrived at my daughter's house in LA, unloaded the furniture, and even carrred it up to the second floor bedroom, plus setting up the frame and the mattress. My daughter now has not only her bed, but her headboard and dresser. She's happy. I'm happy. Great job!
