My daughter wasn't using her scooter, but she hated to sell it. She and her husband looked into renting a truck and driving it from New York to Texas, but it simply wasn't feasible. Before we gave up, I searched on "move scooter cross-country", and the first link I tried was uShip. Though I was wary of putting in my info only to run into a sudden demand for money or some other scam, I did it. The charge for uShip itself turned out to be very modest, and soon I had a number of bids. I didn't realize in advance that most shippers would want to pick up pretty quickly--my daughter was to be out of town part of the next week, so we didn't have a lot of flexibility. If I had it to do again, I would make sure the next week or two after listing were available for pickup. Because of that, I couldn't accept the most attractive bid, but the shipper I went with was still a bargain compared to trying to do it ourselves. My interactions with the shipper were very pleasant, and they were easy to contact. If I ever again have any large object to move, I'll try uShip first thing, and I wouldn't hesitate to use the shipper I used this time.
