I shipped a Triumph motorcycle from Miami to Colorado. The overall experience was positive. Initially I received a bunch of auto-generated bids which were a) too high b) hard to delete from my shipment info and c) annoying. I recommend being specific in your requirements - if you can or don't want your item on a pallet say so, several shippers tried to cajole me into taking their bids cos they were low and had to be rebuffed several times. I would also specify that bids should only be received via formal bids - not via informal "questions" that other shippers don't see and circumvents the whole concept of market driven pricing for shipments. Once I had picked a shipper my transaction went smoothly and very satisfactorily. I would consider using UShip again for my shipping needs.
