I was the buyer of an eBay item where the seller preferred local pickup. I was able to coordinate shipping through uShip. All in all it was a pretty good experience and I was able to find a private party shipper to load, transport, and unload the item for me for a price considerably better than larger companies. I will keep up to date with uShip to coordinate other shipping transactions in the future, as it connects a person with more than the typical Big 3 (or is it two now?) of parcel shipping.
