I listed it with UShip, and will wait to see what happens.
This was a great idea, I never heard of such a 'crowd-sourced' shipping service before.

> One option might be UShip. These are best transported laying down once the paper and tape spindles are removed and preferably, that shipping screws anchor down the chassis (though I have moved them without). With UShip, you set an asking price with parameters, such as blanket wrap, or covered shipping. Everyone from professionals to those with room to spare in their SUV can then ask questions, accept the terms, or counter-offer. They don't get paid until you've received the item and are satisfied. With items like this, I almost prefer a private individual rather than a professional (bulk) mover. -C
