All my 14 year old daughter wanted for Christmas was a motorcycle. She started early asking for a bike (3 years now) after 2 years of being disappointed she tried a new tactic. She saved her own money for the motorcycle she wanted. She mowed yards to save the money and had $500.00 saved. This year she asked can she buy her own motorcycle for Christmas. Knowing we were losing the battle my wife and I decided to relent and try to get her a motorcycle. I inlisted the help of my father in Phoenix AZ. About a month ago dad calls he found a 30 year old Honda in great shape we could get for $250 From looking at the pictures it looked like my first motorcycle. We had to have it. So now we are the proud owners of a motorcycle but it’s in Phoenix we are in OKC. What do we do it’s too cold and the bike is too old to drive it here and we own no tow vehicles. I did a search for shipping on the web and came up with U-Ship. I was very skeptical but decided to try it. I placed my request for shipment around 10 pm central time and by midnight I had people contacting me via e-mail on shipping prices. I received an offer to ship the bike for $250 I could not drive round trip in a pick-up for that price so I went with it. I excepted the bid the bike was picked up and delivered on time the shippers took great care of it and the other bikes on there enclosed trailer. To make a long story short I shipped my motorcycle from Phoenix AZ to OKC Ok. They took better care of my bike than I could have (it was transported in a enclosed trailer). And the kicker is I paid less than I would have for the gas doing it myself. So my daughter will get to spend her hard earned money on th safety equipment she needs to wear instead of the bike.
