I recently shipped a motorcycle from AL to TX. My shipping experience was pretty good. I scaned over rge rules and regulations quickly not paying attention to the fees. I liked the bidding process and found it interesting. I do however think uship should make clearer their fees. Seems like many misunderstand. Not really sure why the provider should not pay the fees as comission fees. Not sure why the fees are so high. Not sure why for example a $500 dollar fee is not 9.9% but instead 12% for the first portion then 9.9% for the next portion. Awfully confusing and expensive. Cost more to get a shipping bid of $500 than to sell a $15000 product on e-bay. Go figure. Lande
