My husband and I had been thinking of buying a motorcycle that we could both enjoy for a while. One day, he found one. Only trouble was, it was all the way in Miami and we live in Minnesota. "Hey," I said, "Why don't we have it shipped to my aunt's house in Kissimmee and then when it gets warmer out we can fly down there and drive it home." My husband thought that was a great idea, it would give us a chance to explore the states and bond on the open road. It would also break me in, since I haven't been on a motorcycle since I was 8 (I'm almost 25 now). We checked in to shipping costs on the website where the bike was bought. They wanted almost $700! That's outrageous, considering how it was only a mere 3 hours away. My husband did some searching and came across the Uship website. Within 24 hours we had locked in a price of $175. What a deal! The winning bidder was very courteous and professional and the bike was delivered without a hitch. He even called the seller and my aunt to make the arrangements. I would definitely recommend Uship to anyone who has shipping needs! Thanks Uship!
