I recently purchased two recumbent bicycles on e-bay.Although I knew that I was to arrange shipping,I never dreamed that getting them shipped from Florida to Texarkana,Arkansas would be so difficult and expensive.I checked with UPS,Fedex,Mayflower, and Yellow Freight with no success.There was either a weight minimum of thousands of pounds (and very expensive)or the bikes had to be disassembled and packed.Even with this option,there were no boxes available for seven foot long bikes.My situation was quickly becoming a nightmare.I finally followed the recommendations of the person who sold the bikes to me.He suggested that I check out "uShip", a service I had never heard of and was a little nervous about.Since this was the only option left,other than personally driving to Florida for them,I gave uShip a try.Within a day, I recieved a call with a bid of 245.00,which was unbelievably low considering my other options.Bobs Delivery (Bob Beckker) called me for the details and within a few days my bikes were here safe-and-sound.He communicated with me from start to finish and was very professional and easy to get along with(very easy-going and laid-back guy).Overall this was a very pleasant experience!I highly recommend and will not hesitate to use "uShip" and "Bobs Delivery" in the future!
