Anyone have experience with this process? I am looking to buy a motorcycle in the California area (Rocklin) and have it shipped out to me in Oahu, Hawaii. I found the bike on Cycletrader and on their site they advertise a shipping company called "Uship" where you can make a bid and a shipper can accept it. I priced my bid slightly above the average at $800 to get a bid sooner but I'm not really sure how long the process can take. I looked at a more definite site called "motorcycleshippers" and their quote was $2600 so I definitely do not want to do that. Another question I have - The bike is coming from a private seller so I'm also not sure how the transaction would take place to make it even for both parties. I suggested paying him half at first and then the other half when I received the bike but he didn't like that idea. I definitely do not want to pay him the whole price in hopes he won't scam me so I was looking to see if there was any good third party websites to act as a middleman for the transaction. We both have Zelle and that was brought up but not sure if that would work for what I need. If anyone has any suggestions or done this before please let me know and thank you for the help!
