This was my first completed uShip experience and I couldn't be happier! My shipper, IRRL, totally exceeded my expectations. I posted a low ball "Book It Now" price and expected only bottom feeders ... Boy was I surprised! I also got a number of bids slightly above my BIN from some providers with great feedback. All were courteous professionals. The uShip format made the steps easy to follow, my only "hmmm" came when I booked with IRRL and then couldn't email the other bidders to thank them for their time. The feedback interface is similar to eBay except I really appreciate the extra character length to leave more details. I was a little surprised by the $6.99 uShip handling fee, somehow all I saw was the "Free Listing" and missed the fine print. Still, I was happy enough to pay it. Small change for arranging the deal. For sure I saved a bundle using uShip. Most dedicated motorcycle carriers wanted 3 to 4 times the amount to ship the bike as what I paid thanks to uShip. I felt like William Shatner should give me an "Atta Boy!" on a PriceLine commercial for posting such a low BIN price. :) uShip was an eye opener for me ... not just for motorcycles but for any heavy shipping. It's a perfect compliment to eBay and I look forward to using uShip again. Awesome!!
