eBay.com Motors have just added a new shipping partner. Now if you purchase a vehicle on eBay Motors you can choose to have is shipped to you via uShip.
In Q4 2010, 74 percent of vehicles sold on eBay Motors were interstate transactions, where the vehicles were delivered to buyers outside the state of the sellers. This means buyers either had to travel to collect their car, or arrange to have it shipped to their home from another State. With a car selling every 1.6 minutes on eBay.com that’s a lot of cars which need to be delivered or collected by the buyer.
When eBay Motors buyers request a custom vehicle shipping quote, they will receive an email allowing them to view upfront “Ship It Now” quotes from uShip’s top transporters and book their services instantly. They can also list their shipment in the uShip marketplace to get additional auction-style bids from uShip’s network of thousands of feedback-rated vehicle shipping companies.
uShip specialise in transporting large, unusual and heavy items, and their website connects people with customer-reviewed delivery companies that can move hard-to-ship items. Transporters place competing bids to win a customer’s business, which brings down delivery costs and makes transport more affordable and efficient.
Launched in 2004 uShip operates globally with local websites in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, European Union, Germany and Australia. eBay.com Motors now uShip’s “Shipping Price Estimator” as a vehicle shipping option for all of their U.S. vehicle, motorcycle and powersports listings.
As well as shipping vehicles you can also use uShip to source deliveries for items such as for items such as motorcycles, heavy equipment, household goods, boats and even horses.
