This job involved the transport of an Aprilia scooter from London to Newcastle, which was originaly on ebay but failed to sell and was bought privately. Using a transport company was more appealing than flying or getting the train to London and riding it (a 125cc scooter) 300 miles back! I was sceptical about the Uship concept at first but I had a some quotes of around £175 for the job and thought that someone would do it cheaper. The listing was easy to make and bids came in within an hour. I was impressed. I exchanged emails and with a local transporter (transitvans) about timing, insurance etc and accepted the bid. As soon as the bid was accepted telephone contact was made and pick up arrangements etc agreed. I was very happy with the whole process and I also saved £50 for very little effort. I couldn't recommend this enough and would certainly use it again.
