The work bench is about 40years old, and handmade by my late father. My nephew who lives some 200 miles away was very keen to inherit it. A friend offered to take it but that didn't happen and I looked for suitable transport. The Uship experience was easy and very quickly I had 2 bids to choose from. I made my choice not based soley on price (although I saved a small fortune)but also on the ratings of other users. I contacted the service provider and we arranged a date and time for collection. They arrived on time and the bench was loaded into the van. What I didn't know at this stage was that I had given the wrong postcode and instead of delivering it to my nephew's home (whilst he was at work)it was delivered to the garden of another house about a mile away. However, all was saved when my nephew contacted the service provider to say it wasn't on his drive and they were able to tell him where it was. They also phoned me to let me know what had happened. My mistake entirely, fortunately my nephew saw the funny side! I would definitely use Uship again. Great service and at an affordable price.
