U-Ship just happened to pop up on my computer one night when I was trying to find the time to go to Oregon and pick up my newly purchased North River jet boat. I decided to check into this a little farther, this would almost be a no brainer: do I drive 1400 miles round trip on a weekend to get the boat? Or have some people bid on the opportunity to deliver it to me for a price that would be close to what it would cost me to drive there and back. This just seemed to good to be true, but what the heck I'll give it a try. I put a price that I figured it would cost me to go there and back on the maximum bidding limit. It didn't take but a half an hour and I already had bids rolling in and they were close to what I was willing to pay, it didn't take long and I had a bid that fit the bill. I accepted the bid and set up a delivery date with the shipper. On the day that we had set as the delivery, my new boat showed up and I didn't have to leave the state. Thanks U-ship this is a great service!! I have told lots of my friends about this great idea!!
