I was selling a recumbent bicycle, one in which you sit kind of laid back on a chair-like seat with your feet high in the air. It's as long as a tandem bicycle and traditional shipping options were out of the question due to its dimensions.
I talked to my buyer and we reluctantly started considering a total disassembly into component parts which would then require him to reassemble it upon receipt.
When I found uShip.com it appeared a moving truck was a good option. After all, that is how the bike got here from New Jersey in 2006. I got a few bids and Joe came within the limit my buyer had set for shipping costs.
When he arrived he wrapped in in many moving blankets, then strapped it into place on a high shelf in his cargo trailer, ensuring that it would not move at all in transit. The buyer emailed this morning to say it arrived in great condition and he was pleased with it.
I would not hesitate to recommend Joe to anyone looking for a careful and reliable mover with very fair prices.
