My wife asked me to build her a cedar chest for Christmas. Right! I did look into cost of materials and expected time to build. Would have invested over $500 in time/materials to get it done and probably ended up with something that looked like Bob the Builder's apprentice made it. So, I started looking for one at furniture dealers. Except for the junk that you put together yourself, the things cost plenty. I then turned to E-Bay. Turned out that all of the units I was interested in went for more than I was willing to spend until the week before Thanksgiving. I was successful bidding on an antique 1937 Lane Cedar Chest - winning it for $175 - a steal. Only problem, it was in Philadelphia, PA. I live in Bristol, IN. How was I going to get it home? I didn't want to drive all the way there to pick it up. A searched the net for shipping companies - saw the U-Ship site but didn't quite understand what it was all about so I called a few of the others. Cheapest price I could find was $140 but I had to have the unit packaged and loaded. That would have cost another 50 - 100. I was bummed!! That's when I went back to U-Ship. Followed the directions and created an account. Figured out how to list my shipment and then waited. I got two responses the next day. Price too high. Third one was out of sight - almost $500 - couldn't believe it!!! Then a day or so later, Michael Johnson submitted a bid for $125. This was a little higher than I wanted to pay but within reason. I accepted and the match was made. I was very pleased at how well the communications went between Mike and myself. We settled on a date to deliver and true to his word, Mike delivered!! He took great care of my cedar chest I couldn't be more pleased. And . . . I'm sure my wife will be surprised. Thanks, U-Ship!
