I bought a wrecked bike in New York and searched for a shipper to get it to me in Oklahoma. Prices varied a bit, but were all above $650.(plus loading/unloading/tolls, etc) I had just about decided to fly one-way($200.) and ride the thing 1680 miles home($200. in gas alone). With one night in a hotel, meals on the road, and 2-3 LONG days ride, I would be miserable and have over $500. invested PLUS my time. I happened across USHIP and decided to list the job. Within an hour I had several bids to choose from, most of which seemed like very competent transporters. I accepted a bid of $500. from BOSSMAN444 and by the next afternoon my bike was loaded up and on it's way. They only took 5 days getting it to me and I had email updates all along the way. As they got closer I got phone calls confirming arrival times and updates. They were very professional and courteous and provided receipts for payment as well. The computer and internet can fester a lot of scams these days, but on the other end of a USHIP bid are some real people providing a real service. Thanks for a job well done and thanks for earning my trust!!
