I was selling a very large desk for a mixing console on eBay, and someone purchased it. I tried using the freight services provided by eBay but either the traditional freight carrier wouldn't take such a large item, or deem it "white glove", or other caveats, and I couldn't get a bid for any less than TWICE what the buyer actually paid for the item. Also, they wanted it crated, or palletized or boxed or something which I, as a lone individual, could not do. So, I found uShip on line, and requested bids from about a dozen smaller companies. Once of the companies that replied was a regional shipper that could pick up the item in the next 2 hours, deliver it to the buyer's address the next day, and for a terrific price. I wrapped the item in blankets, they picked it up, delivered on time, and my buyer was very happy. uShip makes available to you many smaller carriers who are willing and able to be flexible to ship your goods. The whole process of finding, comparing and approving a bid went flawlessly. For anyone who is not a large business with a palletizing machine in their backyard to ship their goods via traditional freight service, I would wholeheartedly recommend this service.
