When I put the bid out there shipping my Honda Valkyrie I was pretty flexable on my time which saved me quite a bit of money in freight costs. So when Don from DM Trucking called and said he was on his way to Montana from Georgia via California with the bike, yeah thats right. But you got to go with the flo when your a truck driver (I've been there and done that too). He told me when he was going to be here and I was just getting ready to leave on a bow hunting trip in southwest Montana. We were hunting at elevations over 9000 feet and 50 miles from nearest town. But I figured we could work it out as I had a doctor's appointment I had to come back home for so I could meet Don and get the bike. Set it all up, then don't you know the doctor's office calls and re-schuleds my appointment for later in the month so that plan was jinxed. So I call Don and see what he had going and what highway he was going to be coming into Montana on. So to make a long story short I was able to meet Don down where I was hunting which saved Don 300 miles and stored the bike for a few days there and picked it up on the way home. I didn't get my elk but I came home with a beautiful bike. I was sure glad Don was easy going and had no problems with changing drop off point. I had no idea what was going to happen when I searched google for motorcyle shippers but I am sure glad uShip responded and we were able to put all together with Don Jenson at DM Trucking. I will definately us uShip again if needed and will tell my friends about them also because they are always looking at items on Ebay but don't bid because they don't know how much it will cost to get the items shipped. Thanks again, Lee.
