This week, we posted our very first "How Much to $hip" contest on Facebook.
So, how much did it cost to ship this piano coast-to-coast using uShip?
... The answer is $1,002. Here's the completed shipment listing.
This piano shipment from Basking Ridge, NJ to Cupertino, CA had a route of almost 3,000 miles, so this represents a substantial savings for fragile item transport.
The transporter, Artisan Shipping Co. Inc., has been on the site since 2004 and has stellar all-time feedback. Artisan focuses on transport of fragile items including fine art, vintage cars and musical instruments.
Here are just a few great testimonials from shipping customers over the past week:
"One Old Cat" - Pet Transport from Toledo, OH to Houston, TX
"I used Furry Friends Pet Transport to send my daughter's elderly cat from Toledo, Ohio to Houston, Texas. It was too hot to ship her as cargo on an airplane in June. Natty-Cat was picked up at my home by a wonderful, caring gentleman. I was kept updated on Natty's trip by email during the trip, and Natty was promptly delivered in Houston, Texas. She traveled in an air conditioned van, and it was obvious that she was well cared for on the trip. I can't thank Kitty and Bill of Furry Friends Pet Transport enough for helping reunite Natty and my daughter. They are wonderful!"

"Golf Cart" - Auto Transport from Escondido, CA to Monmouth, OR
"This was my first time using UShip and I will have to say it was a very positive experience. The bidding process went well & booking the bid with Jade Auto went smoothly. My golf cart arrived as expected & the shipper kept me informed of pickup & delivery. I would use the UShip service again."

"Harley Davidson: VRSC" - Motorcycle Shipping from Brooksville, FL to Myerstown, PA
"Purchased a motorcycle in FL and needed it shipped to PA. Nick from TowMotoInc stated a time frame up front and since his bid was very reasonable I accepted. I was able to track the shipment via GPS tracking in uShip, which was great. I am very happy with Nick's service. Delivered as promised, in excellent shape! I would use TowMotoInc again."
