Six months ago, I bought an electric scooter so I would have some much needed transport. After spending most of my money, the machine I had bought did not run!I then spent the last six months tearing it apart, sending parts back and forth, watching it sit in my bedroom and crying myself to sleep. Finally two weeks ago the company agreed to replace the scooter (to bad they could'nt replace my summer on foot). All I had to do was simply ship the scooter back to them at my expense! That was when the real nightmare began! The offer would expire in 12 days and I FRANTICALLY began looking for how to mail something that weighed 225 or more lbs. Every price was from 989.00 all the way down to 485.00. Then I ran onto USHIP , signed up, and within minutes got a bid for another nine hundred something, I guess thats a popular range to ship a bike but, I did not even have 200.00. After deciding I might as well put the brand new millstone of a scooter outside with a for sale sign. I then got a bid from Tim Miller who delivered my bike to Iowa for only 130.00! Finally, I can get some real sleep and dream of riding my new scooter before it snows.Thank you USHIP and thank you Tim Miller wherever you are! Robin.
