I've now shipped two motorcycles from the East Coast to Southern California using shippers I found on uShip. I'm a sailor stationed in Afghanistan, so 100% of each of these transactions were arranged completely online, sight unseen. In both cases, the bikes were delivered by independent shippers who did a fantastic job. These shipments would not have been possible using big commercial shippers because of all the hoops one has to jump through. Not only were each of my transactions simple and easy, the shippers beat the prices of the big companies by hundreds of dollars each. So let's see... easy, reliable, convenient and personable, OR, expensive, difficult, inconvenient service provided by cheap labor... It's a no-brainer: I'll stick with the little guys I find on uShip every time! Steve (PapoSteve) and Jett (jettcycleshop) both did great jobs at prices the big shippers couldn't come close to. uShip made it all possible. Thanks!
