Be careful what you wish for - you might get it! I've been looking at this type of scooter for a while and I placed a lowball bid on one in ebay. With about 12 hrs left I kept looking for someone to overbid me. I figured that I'd better start looking for shipping. The scooter was in Tampa, FL and I'm in Lansing, MI. As this scooter is rather large (~5ft tall) I did not know if I would receive any reasonable bids. Of course I received the "cost is no objection" bids and bids for covered and uncovered shipping. When I won the bid (big oops) I wondered How I would tell my wife. Anyway I chose NightRiderExpress as it was a covered service (and the price was reasonable). Once the communication by cell phone started it was fairly regular. I found that I enjoyed the contact as not only informative but also quite personable. When they delivered my scooter they even helped to roll it (after my flooding the engine) into my space. What a great couple of guys. This was the second item that I've listed and shipped through uShip. The process is smooth and easy and the results were quite satisfactory. Ron Oh, my wife wants to receive a motorcycle license now.
