By connecting consumers directly with drivers we generate an opportunity for those consumers to obtain cheap motorcycle shipping.

CitizenShipper has enjoyed compelling growth in a number of shipping verticals consistently for 2013. One specific reason that CitizenShipper is attracting an abundance of visitors is cheap motorcycle shipping. "Motorcycles are fairly large and bulky, so are inherently difficult to ship" says CEO Richard Obousy. "CitizenShipper is almost custom made for people who are shipping difficult to move items and consumers are finding that they can get motorcycle shipping at a discounted rate on the site."

The capacity to save has played a non-trivial role in bringing customers to CitizenShipper' unique business model cuts out the 'middle-man' and connects those in need of shipping directly with transport providers who can ship the items for them. Transportation providers listed on CitizenShipper can generate revenue while charging much less than traditional shipping companies due to the streamlined approach to business.

"We're seeing motorcycles ship for 50 cents a mile, sometimes much lower" says Obousy. "By connecting consumers directly with drivers we generate an opportunity for those consumers to obtain cheap motorcycle shipping."

Founded in 2009, CitizenShipper has experienced rapid growth into a compelling marketplace where transporters intending on making a trip can leave quotes on some of the thousands of online shipments listed on the site. Payments for completed shipments range from as low as $20 for shipping jobs, to as much as $5,000 for cross country difficult to move items. Many hot shot drivers use the site to pick up extra shipments.

The company recently expanded into the eBay marketplace, and Obousy believes that this holds further possibilities for accelerated growth. "We're now certified eBay developers and we've built an application that allows eBay sellers to connect their buyers directly with our price estimation tool." Say's Obousy. "This allows buyers to get instant estimates on the shipping costs and holds huge potential for local pick-up only auctions."
