Re: Triumph Trident 1974Black with Gold FlameVIN: T150VHxxxxTexas Title Number 8887xxxxIssued 1/26/89

To The Pearland Police Department:

On May 22nd 2008 I contracted a shipment of one Triumph motorcycle to be delivered from Pearland Texas to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania through online shipping Broker UShip.A company identified as Baton Rouge Shipping Solutions, Inc. located at 21447 Highway 1032 Denham Springs Louisiana 70726 (225) 757-553 won the contract to deliver the motorcycle by July 12th 2008. After many failures to pick up the motorcycle it was finally picked up on July 11th 2008 at 1 AM. The driver who identified himself as John, brother of James Helmes owner of BRSS, loaded the motorcycle on to a 50’ gooseneck trailer. I asked Mr. Helmes for a bill of laden, and was informed he had run out. I signed an email generated by UShip to BRSS showing they were who they said they were. I retained a copy.

During the next week I spoke to James Helmes, who assured me the motorcycle would be delivered by the time I reached Pittsburgh, as I needed the motorcycle for 2 rallies I was to attend the week of July 20th 2008.

When I arrived in Pittsburgh, the motorcycle had not been delivered. I left numerous messages for Mr. Helmes. He finally called at 9:30 PM on July 20th 2008 and advised he would have the bike hotshotted to me by a different carrier. The bike never arrived. I continued to call Mr. Helmes during the week and blew off the 1st rally I was to attend in Tioga, Pa. When I finally reached Mr. Helmes I asked him where my motorcycle was and he could not answer. I returned back to Texas on July 21st 2008. Subsequently, I spoke to Mr. Helmes on July 29th 2008 and asked where my motorcycle was and was informed he “was traveling into a valley” and had to hang up and call me later. I raised a dispute on July 19th 2008 with UShip in an effort to find my motorcycle. James Helmes responded to its query stating” it is in transit”. As of this writing I suspect something has happened to my motorcycle as BRSS will not tell me where my motorcycle is. Helmes will not return my calls. A person has the right to know where his property is at any given time.I appreciate your help in locating my motorcycle; I will file charges if deemed necessary.

Fairpricedshipping seems to think that he has the best rates but if he stopped sucking up with uship and getting legal brokers kicked off uship (yes there are many) people would see that fairpricedshipping is more like overpricedshipping

uship scam bid

Bid won: $325.00 (hid the scammer rate in the bid details HERE of $130)

Fairpricedshipping rate: $455.00

Actual broker rate: $280.00

Fairpricedshipping scam amount? $175.00

Not very “fair priced shipping" more like “I'm gonna ***" shipping

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Another ship scam bid

Bid won: $299.00 (hid the scammer rate in the bid details HERE of $130)

Fairpricedshipping rate: $429.00

Actual broker rate: $140.00

Fairpricedshipping scam amount? $289.00

Not very “fair priced shipping" more like “I'm gonna ***" shipping

And this poor person was dumb enough to post this “I finally ran into a service provider that wasn't just a flim-flam artist. This guy is the real deal. " This is the perfect victim. One that says thank you for screwing me!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Another ship scam bid

Bid won: $508.00 (hid the scammer rate in the bid details HERE of $260)

Fairpricedshipping rate: $768.00

Actual broker rate: $360.00

Fairpricedshipping scam amount? $408.00

Not very “fair priced shipping" more like “I'm gonna ***" shipping

As you can see, Tyler Sheff is going to *** out of more money if you ship with him. I was taken advantage of and hopefully you will not be one of his victims. He has been reported to UTi Worldwide but they do nothing, I canceled my credit card charge and as I have seen online, Tyler likes to do his personal shopping on his victims credit cards. This did not happen to me but I would think twice on shipping with him on uship or anywhere else.

One last thing, for a home based business and lying about being one of the top logistic companies doing 200,000 shipments per year (laugh, laugh, sniffle) with the below comment from a unsuspecitng victim, that would be physically possible to talk to anyone.

….I spoke with Tyler on the phone. He spent a lot of time with me going over different options. Great customer service. You can tell this fellow has been doing this a while, has his act together and is ready to execute. I ship items on a regular basis and will use his services again. Thanks for a job well done.

Let's do the math. remember this is a person in a bedroom “and claims to be one of the top logistic companies handling 200,000 shipments per year"

200,000 shipments per year

16,666 shipments per month

3,846.15 shipments per week

769.23 shipments per day

96.15 per hour

1.6 per minute

Please explain how THAT is even remotely believeable? Someone? Bueller? Bueller? And still have time to slander his competition, explain the full details of shipping to a new client and even squeeze in time to bid and scam on uship?

FYI, I found your page here. I have noticed that in the last 10 shipments, they has 6 cancellations. Not very good odds. Maybe people are catching on to the scam?

I SEE TYLER DOING THIS IN THE BID DETAILS ALL THE TIME BUT USHIP DOES NOTHING TO HIM, RUMOR HAS IT THAT TYLER & MICKEY MILSAP ARE BEST OF FRIENDS AND TYLER GIVES MICKEY A KICKBACK OR A % OF ANYTHING HE SHIPS OFF OF USHIP IN RETURN HE CAN SAY OR DO WHATEVER HE WANTS. USHIP EVEN HAS REMOVED ALMOST ALL OF TYLERS NEGATIVE FEEDBACK SO HE LOOKS LIKE THE BROKER FROM HEAVEN. USHIP IS GOING TO LOOSE ALL THE GOOD CARRIERS BECAUSE OF GUYS LIKE TYLER TRYING TO RUN THE LEGAL CARRIERS OFF THE SITE. WAKE UP USHIP BEFORE ITS TO LATE

I heard this dirtbag even staged a robbery at a bar he worked at. I guess he stole the money and reported it as a robbery.

What a fine upstanding citizen he is. He is a piece of ***.

I know this dirtbag and would LOVE to see him get life as a habitual criminal because that's what he is!

I've got more fuel for the fire if you need it.

I'm sorry to hear what has happened to you though using u-ship can sometimes burn you as it has burnt many people over the years.it is a shame that they do not print all the bad experiences people have had with them,all they print are the good experiences yet there are many providers on the site with less then 80% satisfaction.next time you need a motorcycle shipped it may be wise to talk to your local dealer or go though ama for a responsible carrier.
