The house I was renting long term was sold while living in it, so my Fiancée and I had to move, our furniture and belongings. We did the boxing, but both being working professionals we didn't know how we would get the move done.
I contacted moving companies and were getting insanely high quotes of over $3000 as the town we live in was about 3 hours from any moving company.
I've watched Shipping Wars, so I decided to check out uShip. The site is pretty user friendly, so I got on, created a profile and went to work making a shipment.
The auction process was interesting, hoping for bids and answering some questions. Unfortunately, some providers aren't the best of most professional to deal with, but the provider I did choose, was easy to communicate with, had no issues with answering my questions, and made me feel comfortable, so we made a choice on our mover.
Our shipper was awesome! We spoke a few times leading up to the shipment, made arrangements on arrival time, and when he and his crew showed up, they were ready and motivated to go to work. They had our belongings packed in there CLEAN unit and had us moved into our new house in under 2 HOURS!!!!!! Wow these people are awesome!!
If I need to ship anything again, I will checking out uShip in a heart beat, amazing experience all around.
