My experience with uShip and service provider APHauling was awsome! I recently purchased an '07 Yamaha Royal Star Tour Deluxe on eBay with the intentions of taking a one-way flight from SW Louisiana to Miami, FL to take possession and ride it back home 1,100 miles. Then I started considering all the facts:1. The bike only has 1,060 miles on it since purchased new October '08 with only 160 of the miles in the last riden in the last 4 months. All of the miles riden NONE were highway miles! Altho I felt sure the bike was road worthy, I had some conserns. 2. I had 60 hours to get to Miami, rent a car, drive to the upper Keys (20 miles below Key Largo) rent a room, meet the seller, inspect bike, make arrangements to return rental, head back to Louisiana with one more motel room in route. 3. All of step 2. would have cost a minimum of $500. So I checked out uShip, put the shippment up for bid with a max of $500. It was so easy following the menues. The bids started comming in all with a range all the way to $1,500. Read all of the feedback for all the bidders and chose APHauling saving me well over $100 and allowing me to catch up on projects during my 2 days off work and that is priceless! Arden delivered my 07 Yamaha Royal Star Tour Deluxe in perfect condition to my driveway 2 days before any other bidder would have picked it up from the seller! Arden was very polite and a pleasure to work with. He maintained communication through-out the trip and called to explain a slight delay as soon as he was aware of the problem. I was still able to ride my new purchase before dark that day. Thanks a bunch Arden Dan
