"Difficulty in the Details"
shipping from Surrey, British Columbia, Canada Calgary, Alberta, Canada for $1,088.67
We heard about UShip through a friend of a friend and thought it was a great way to save some money moving from Vancouver to Calgary. The concept of UShip is great but when it comes down to the details we could have simply booked a moving company for the same price...i think.
We had only three weeks until our move and tried our very best to estimate all of our household items to move in order to get a 'Shipment' started for bidding. With a week and a half remaining we booked our company of choice and started to pack. The problem arose that we began to realize we had more items than first projected. Because we were only a week and a half away from moving we didn't feel comfortable starting a completely new bid. Therefore in the end the company charged us extra for our extra items (certainly fair) but difficult to navigate right down to moving day! In the end, I'm not sure we actually saved any money? If you have an exact amount of items and weight to ship I could see how this site is fantastic.
