I believe this is the right place to post this, but you guys can move it if it's not.
I am considering buying my bike from ebay, as there are very few bikes available locally, and most of them are overpriced. Thus, if I find the right shipping company, it would be cheaper to bring from afar, and if it is a reliable company (the seller really looks legitimate and honest), there should be nothing to worry about.
However, therein lies the problem; or concern, rather. I wanted to ask you guys if you have any experience with an honest, reliable shipping company that would bring the bike safely, and at a reasonable price, from Michigan to Arizona.
I have set up an account and the listing in uShip, and for those of you not familiar with this (I just learned how it works), you basically create a listing of your shipment: description, origin, destination, etc., and shipping companies start bidding for the right to provide the service. Sounds pretty cool in theory, but I don't want to go just by the lowest price, as it could get more expensive, should something were to happen to the bike.
And that's where you guys and gals come in. Please post your experiences here, so I have some reference once the bids start coming.
Thanks! And don't be shy, speak up.
