I bought a Dutaillier rocker chair and rocker stool on ebay. It was a birthday present for my son-in-law - a soldier based in northern Scotland. I fetched the chair from Bath (200 miles each way) this cost me 2 days, stress of M5 & M4 traffic and road works, £75 in fuel and £100 in accommodation & food. Self-delivery 400 miles to Scotland would have been 2 times 9 hour days, £150 fuel plus overnight & food costs. Uship allowed me to put out a contract description in a very simple manner with the option of cancelling if I no longer wanted the job doing. I received numerous bids - many of which were far too expensive - £200-£300 etc. but then I got three bids from couriers who do regular trips up there and made realistic offers based on my items being a small part of their load. I could not have found these people without Uship. I made my final choice on positive feedback listings not the cheapest price and Karl of 2Collies Ltd was great to deal with. Overall the shipment cost me just over one third of my own fuel costs. I would unhesitatingly use uship again. Their booking fee (a percentage of contract price) was worth it.
