I was on the net seaching for a shipper to transport a bike I bought in Seattle and came across acouple of shipping companys. They gave me a bid and It was just way too much for what I wanted to spend. Then a friend told me about Uship, where as you get competive bids from multiple shippers out bidding each other for your business. It was great!!! I had profiles on the shippers and feedbacks I can check out before I finally chose one. Sometimes picking the lowest bid is not the best either. I picked the one who can work best for my schedule so I would'nt have to miss work. I think for the distance of travel, I got a fair bid and very happy with the overall outcome. Thanks Uship.
