I was shipping a 1969 Triumph Show Chopper I had purchased in Michigan to my home in Portland Oregon for a distance of 2400miles. It was getting to be winter and I did not want the bike to be exposed to the elements. The shipper I finally used had zero feedback and I was nervous it was someone just making up the site so they could take off with my bike. But after doing some research they seemed to be legit so I went with them. My shipper blanket wrapped the bike and tied it in an enclosed trailer. The fishtail sweep pipes wouldn’t fit (the bike was 2” shy of being 10’ long) so the exhaust had to be removed. They picked it up on Sunday night and removed the exhaust for me and dropped it off on Wednesday morning replacing the exhaust. There was quite a crowd that gathered around to look at the bike as they replaced the exhaust. I got my feedback within a couple of hours of them leaving. If I had not used uShip I would have had to pay an additional $500 for the same service. This was my first time to use uShip. I could not believe I could just put out an ad and sit back and wait for shippers to come to me. It was so much easier (and fun) to have shippers looking for me rather than me looking for shippers. The interaction with multiple shippers within the site was very handy. It was easier than making phone calls back and forth with multiple shippers. Thanks to uShip I now have a great relationship with a shipping company that will serve me well again in the future. Incase our schedules do not line up for next time, I know uShip will be of great service again. Thank you.
