and then realized I had NO idea how I would transport it to my home in another state. I started researching UHaul vehicles and prices figuring I'd have to get helpers to take the long drive to pick up the bike, and then I chanced upon the UShip website. I admit I was reluctant to sign up and didn't expect anything to come of it, and within 12 hours my phone was ringing with messages stating "you have a bid". I not only found a great shipper at a great price, but I was enlightened to all of the details and concerns that must be taken into consideration when transporting items. More importantly, I had an instant sense of relief when I realized that arranging to self-transport this vehicle was no longer my headache. I have told many people, in conversation, about UShip because I truly find the service to be an amazing convenience, and think it may be one of the best uses of internet technology that I've seen in some time. Funny thing, I sound more excited telling people about the UShip experience than I do talking about my new scooter! Thats saying something! I am so glad I chanced upon UShip. For me, it was a hidden gem that I hope doesn't remain hidden!
