I'd been debating how to move my new bike 250+ miles for a few weeks, and I'd presumed delivery would cost far too much. I stumbled across uShip and decided I'd got nothing to lose by putting it out to tender.
Firstly, I was amazed at how quickly I got offers. I expected it to take days and days, but within hours the offers were already well below what I'd anticipated and the feedback system makes things feel very transparent.
I decided to go with Howard as I'd seen he'd delivered a few bikes already, and his communication immediately put me at ease. Despite having never met, I never had a moment of doubt that the bike was going to be safe. We had a chat about dates and times and once everything was finalised, I put him in contact with the ex-owner.
And that was that! All I had to do was sit back, let Howard's updates roll in and wait for the delivery. It felt like Christmas when the van with my shiny new toy turned up and I really can't stress how impressed I am with the service. When I buy my next bike (Don't tell the other half) I'll know who to call.
