We are moving abroad and a lot of our house was going to my brother n law. We needed to get these items to the Northwest. At the same time we had items in the NW that we wanted to take abroad. Hiring a van for ourselves was going take time we didn't have to spare. I went on a couple of "shipping" auctions and when I finally put our offer out on UShip I found Rico (RicoBlade). He was wonderful- wrote me, we discussed my requirements, timeframes, and costs. I would (and have) most definitely recommended UShip and Rico for anyone that needs this service. If we hadn't had this option, we would have spent 2-4 days sorting this out which we don't have to spare.
