I had never used Uship before but i'm glad i did. I had hired a friend to ship my bike for me, but something came up and he couldn't do it. I did some research and found Uship. I thought it was pretty neat for someone to bid on my shipping needs. I set up my account, and listed my bike(which was very simple and easy). They have a Ship Now feature that is great. It's kind of like a buy it now option you would see on ebay. Less than 10 minutes had passed and i had 2 bids. While i was reviewing the bids i looked up at the status and it said booked. Someone had used the Ship Now feature and booked my shipping needs. Just minutes after that i received an email from the shipper with his name, number, and the date my bike would be delivered. I could hardly belive it could be that easy. So i called the number that was given to me and reached a man named Beck. I thought that this would be kind of complicated, but it was the exact opposite. All i had to do was give him the exact address of the pick up point, and the name and number of the person to contact when he got the the pick up point. All said and done it only took one week from the moment i set up my account with Uship to the day it was delivered in perfect shape. It turned out to be cheaper to use Uship than hire my friend. I highly recommend using Uship. I know i'll use them again. Thanks Uship and thanks again Beck!! I almost forgot, my bike showed up a day early from the date i was quoted. Very nice!
