We were trying to figure out how to get a cradle to CA. All four of our children had slept in this cradle and we want all of our grandchildren to sleep in it as well. Our fist grandchild(grandson) will be born in March.We tried to send it UPS but it was going to be a fortune. So, Gregg's brother suggested uship. We were a little nervous about doing this but went ahead. Within 10 min we had a bid, accepted it, talked with the man transporting it. He touched base several times, picked it up when he said he would and had it delivered in the time frame he promised. We couldn't be any happier. We will certainly use uship again if needed!
