I recently sold a non-running vehicle on eBay. I'm in San Francisco and the buyer was in Illinois. When the auction ended the buyer asked if I could take the car to a local mechanic to get it running as all of the transport companies he had contacted would haul an operational vehicle. I got a quote from a local mechanic on getting the car running, but as it would undergo a complete restoration in Illinois it seemed crazy to spend the money. A quick Google search introduced me to uShip. I listed the shipment and within a day I had multiple offers from carriers willing to move a non-operational car for much less that the buyer had been quoted. One of the bidders (BK Transport - bkelly00) responded with a great price and a timeline that fit perfectly with my needs. I was skeptical that the process could be this easy and was hesitant to book the shipment - but Brian was great, explained the process and the service that uShip provides to him as an independent carrier. I booked the shipment and all went smoothly! I couldn't be happier with my experience, and I know I saved the buyer close to $1,000 in shipping fees and well over that in costs to get this car running. Thanks to both uShip and Brian Kelly for a great experience!
