I matched up with Troy (flounderbait) to haul my newly purchased 9000lb, 32 foot high performance powerboat from Iowa to North Carolina, 1000 miles one way. Troy's bid was very competitive. He used a one ton duelly pick up to make the haul. Shortly after leaving Iowa with the load, he experienced a breakdown with one of the boat trailer's triple axle bearings. In the pouring rain, he removed the tire, allowing him to get off the highway and find parts. With his mechanical ability, Troy was able to repair the trailer and deliver it to me on time two days later. This was my first time using uShip. I will be using them again!
