I recently won an auction of a 1954 chevrolet on Ebay. The next step was to find a shipping company that would ship it from Seatle Washington to Los Angeles for the best service and the least amount possible. A friend had told me about "uShip" transportation auction. So I looked into it. It was a very interesting and positive experience in getting my vehicle to Los Angeles. Ebay gave me some of the more larger auto transport companies and their estimates for the job. A nice and new feature that they offer but I still wondered if I could get the vehicle home cheaper? I looked into uShip and found that they were able to take items that you were watching on ebay, such as vehicles, and use these same pictures for transportation listings. I set a target price that I was hoping to met and listed the car. Bidders began to contact me with details and prices about moving the car to Los Angeles. uShip would even give me a percentage of how likely I am to be getting the best possible price. When I reached 85%, that was good enough for me, plus the fact that my car was coming on a large auto transport truck rather that a trailer or towed. I ended up paying close to three hundred less that what Ebay transport companies estimated. It was a great experience and the company that I used (Sktrucking) were great to work with and always availiable when I phoned. My vehicle was picked up on time from where I purchased it and arrived a day earlier. Overall, I had a great experience with uShip and I was very satisfied with the price that I paid to have the car shipped. Would I use them again? Yes. They are a great option when considering the transportation of a car. Thanks! RR
