Bids were very expensive to ship my ebay won item cross country. I hadn't realized that a affordable shipper I had used on a previous Ebay item from the same state needed item brought TO them, and my seller was not able to do so. I had much more luck finding affordable local shippers, and went with the highest rated, though more expensive one, to move my item 1.25 hrs away to this cross-country shipper. Based on his rating I felt I could trust him. I sent him a money order and asked him to obtain a proof of delivery. He did a great job. Before Uship I received bids from $575-$675 minimum. One bid was $430 just to move it to the second shipper. This transaction cost me $360.
