Having purchased a cute antique couch on eBay I found to my horror that having it shipped from an obscure little town, thousands of miles across the plains & the CAN-USA border, to my place, was not going to be easy. I'm lucky I heard about UShip because none of the big shippers wanted to help. Some said they had no-antiques policies (?maybe because the risk of breakage is too high?) and others only take loads that are a lot bigger or a lot smaller. Many focus on big contracts with corporations, not individuals with one-time shipments. I could find nobody to even quote a price, til uShip! I would have been really stuck without you guys. I will spread the word about this great service.
