Just looping back 'cause it drives me nuts when we don't hear any reviews or follow-ups on facilitations, especially considering the OP in this thread hasn't updated the list since 2012.

@septacycles was instrumental in helping facilitate shipping on a recent score in Loveland, CO (north of Denver). I saw he hadn't logged in for a few months so PM'ed with my email address so he could avoid dealing with logins and other crap (which I think is good practice!)

Responded super fast! Was very willing to help me out, gave a selection of a couple shops in Loveland and Fort Collins to work with, both just north of Denver. Packing was above-par for other shops I've dealt with in the past. Bike arrived two days ahead of schedule and in the exact condition expected.

So, in the event any BF'ers are hunting in the north-Denver area, here's a glowing review for the white-glove treatment I received! Extra props also go to wrench monkeys at The Extra Mile in Loveland that boxed it up. Kris rocks! Thanks guys!

Hello, Anyone available to go a bit north of Charlotte North Carolina (Mooresville, NC) to pack & ship a bike?
I'll provide pre-paid shipping label, and no money needs to change hands at your end. Just the PITA of packing...

Cheers, Eric

Also looking for a facilitator for a potential purchase located in Rogersville, TN, (Knoxville, TN and Asheville, NC closest larger cities). Will need pick-up, pack, and ship by you and/or LBS.

As noted earlier, I am willing to facilitate (pick-up/pack/ship) for purchases in the Las Vegas, NV area.
