I officially love uShip. What a great idea.
I recently hired Gabriel Picardo to deliver furniture a relatively short distance away. Everything went really well. What a great guy to work with. The price for the job was good too. It was much better than renting a truck and trying to do it ourselves.
Last year, I used uShip to buy an antique dresser on eBay that was 1200 miles away, with the seller only offering local pickup. You know those eBay listings that have just what you've been looking for forever at an amazing bargain price, it's "For local pickup only" and it's, like, 3000 miles away? Just use uShip.
