My shipment was a 500cc Honda motorcycle weighing about 450 lbs plus a large carton of spare parts, helmet, boots, and shop manuals. This was a present to my son who lives in San Francisco: a distance of 1,720 miles. I posted my proposal on uShip and within 48 hours was contacted by Edgar who agreed to begin the move within 48 hours. In other words, four days after I first posted my proposal at uShip my motorcycle was on its way cross country. Three days later it was unloaded at its destination. National movers cannot possibly do any better -- and probably provide not as good service at much higher costs. I know for sure that I saved up to 50% on the shipping cost by using uShip instead of one of the big national shippers. This was my first long distance move of a motorcycle. The national moving companies had wanted to charge a fortune for such a move -- I checked it. Edgar moved it for half the corporate rate and did so with the greatest communication, perfectly on time arrival at both ends, and very pleasant manner. Assuming mine was a typical uShip experience, I would certainly use it again and also recommend it to others.
