Was trying to find a way to ship a bike I was buying out of state, over 1,500 miles away. The seller said to try "uship", and never heard of them before. Well, I went and read up on it, understood the principle as I'm a long time ebayer. So I decided to list the job. Looked at some profiles, found one hauler who lived within 30 miles from me and with a perfect feedback rating. I was hoping he would bid the job. Within minutes, he did. and I accepted. In less than a week, I had the bike and at the price I wanted. I did check other carriers, so I knew ahead of time what the going rate was. This is the slickest idea I have ever seen. What an ingenious idea!
