The shipping was great. even though the guy I bought the boat from said the triler was good to go. Duane picked my boat up last Tuesday heading to MI, little did he know that about 12 hours later on HWY 40 the tire would fly off due to the bearing giving out. Duane called me as soon as this happend and after I made sure he was ok I thought man more money. it was pretty pricey but Duane called around even though he was in the desert and found the best price for me and found a repair shop about 50 miles away. so he had to wait on the side of the road for an extra large tow truck seeing that my boat is 28ft long. he called and said they where on there way to the shop after my boat had been picked up. after the shop "which thoes guys where awsome" saved me some money since i needed a new tire and rim, 3 bearings and 2 new hubs. yeah the seller made this boat ready to go allright go off the side off a cliff maybe. After Duane got back on the road he called to let me know his status and that he would still be here on saturday and he showed up on time which was really great seeing the boat I bought needed to be winterized. thats pretty much my exciting story this is the second time I have used Uship being Active duty military it is hard to pick up stuff you buy around the country. I really think Uship is a great place for the small guys who are starting out or even the big guys. I found Uship after getting screwed over by a Broker service who already wanted to charge me and arm an leg to ship my car from California. I also like the personal experience you get from knowing who is handeling my stuff. Thank you to all the shippers out there.
