I was interested in a moped--a relatively low value item located several states away. The seller didn't want to ship, but was happy to have the item picked up. Most shipping options cost way more than the item was worth. I did some research on a comparable item (a tandem bicycle) and set a price based on that. I got a couple of high bids, but then one that was right on target. The shipper I selected did a perfect job at the right price. Couldn't ask for better.
