I'm a college student from Bowling Green state University in Bowling Green, OH. I live in Northwest Ohio and am out in Boulder, CO for an internship at a Local Graphic design studio. I unfortunately I did not have a dependable car to drive across the country and could not find someone to take me out and trailer my motorcycle out for a reasonable price. Once I got to boulder I borrowed a friends bicycle (since most boulderites ride bikes i figured what the hey). Unfortunately the studio that I was doing my internship at was almost 3 miles away from where I was living in North Boulder and I have been itching to ride my motorcycle up in the mountains. So a friend of mine and I started to look for used motorcycles (cheap) to purchase for the summer, he pays for half and I pay for half, I ride the summer, then he buys me out when I leave and its his. That was going to cost around 500-1000 depending on the motorcycle, the perk was I got to ride for the summer and get my money back, however we could not find one. I then talked to my boss and he said to ship it out...that Fed Ex couldnt be that much. I did not want to wait so I stumbled upon this website. I started reading other members expeirences and the cost to ship some of the items and I was impressed by all the positive feedback and in expensive shipping. I then proceeded to put an add for my beloved 2001 yamaha R6 motorcycle up at an astounding 250 dollars target price. I got my first bid fro around 1200...denied immediately, then received a couple questions, and finally received a question from a gentleman on here called mlp677 on here. He explained he could possibly help me out. After a second message he posted a bid for 257 dollars sunday night. I was ecstatic and accepted immediately. From then he was in contact with me immediately. He even went out of the way and brought my helmets and jackets out at NO ADDITIONAL COST! Very nice guy ,and I saved possibly around 500 dollars or more! Will use Uship again!
