We decided to ship bikes from Chicago to L.A. California and go on a 2 week gypsy tour across America. Most shipping companies offered a price of $1000 and up per bike. U ship allowed us to find Seth, who happened to be going our way already. He was able to load the bikes in Chicago, thankfully we had a 1 week window prior to the beginning of our journey. We also had a relative in the L.A. area that was very flexible with his time to receive the bikes whenever they arrived. This allowed the delivery driver a few days to avoid a bad weather front. Weather is something that should be considered prior to shipping. Seth has shipped bikes in the past and brought a trailer that was suited for easy loading without a forklift or dock height, street level roll em up the ramp right into place. The price agreed upon was very fair and there were no unforeseen issues. I Recommend Seth for shipping.
