I purchased a Honda CT-70 on e-bay.
This is a small trail bike,and a vintage vehicle (1970)
The seller was in Washington,North of Seattle.
I was in southern New Jersey.
Now, how to get it here!
The seller had gotten a shipping quote from a shipper that he had done business with in the past.
His price was in the $600.00 neighborhood.
I happened upon u-Ship and listed my shippment.
Used the "book it now" option asking if someone would ship my new toy for $300.00
Within 2 days I recieved a quote from Lear Shipping. I accepted their bid, and was quickly in phone contact with Terry Lear and we worked out all the details.
I listed my shippment on 3/25/07.I accepted the bid 0n 3/31.
The bike was picked up on Good Friday (4/6),and delivered on 4/12/07!
That was a pick up on the west coast,and a delivery on the east coast within 6 days!!!
Now when I listed the shippment, I stated that both the pick-up and the delivery dates were very flexible, but I never expected such quick service!
I had owned one of these fun little bikes when I was a kid, and always wanted to get another one someday.
When I found this little gem, I was exstatic.
But I was very apprehensive about shipping it with an unknowned (by Me) shipper.
I put my faith in the hands of u-Ship, and thus Lear Shipping.
I was rewarded with a very quick, curtious experience.
My new little gem arrived in perfect condition, and is now resting comfortably in my garage.
My thanks to Terry Lear, and his driver, Carson.
I guess you know that the next time I need something shipped,u-Ship is the first place I will go. And if you ever need such services, give Lear Shipping a call!
