I purchased a motorcycle on ebay, based on a friend telling me he would be able to help me get the bike from central Texas to California. Somewhere along the line, a friend of my friend couldn't follow through on a portion of shipping, so I started to look for alternatives.
I contacted another friend who is a trucker who told me about Uship. I checked into Uship and put up an auction to have the bike shipped. I got immediate response and within days made a deal with a private party.
The best part about the transaction is that it was negotiable.
