I had looked all around the Salt Lake City area for a newer Cobalt 220 and had no luck. I started looking outsode the state for a boat and had found one in Lake Tahoe to buy. I had setteled on a price with the owner, and was in the process of booking a trip to Reno to inspect the boat, when I got a phone call form the owner who decided to reneg on our deal. So back to the drawing board I went. I found another Cobalt 220 in Wichita wich was twice the distance as Reno, but the price was right. I then turned to USHIP which I found using a Google search on boat transporters, set myself up as a user which was extremly easy. Placed the item that I needed transported and was recieving inquires within minutes. John quickly placed a bid which was very competitive so I accepted it and we set uo the pick up date on the boat. I booked John to haul the boat back, flew into Wichita and met him at the dealership. Despite a two hour delay John was very patient waiting for the boat while the final details were finished up. At 3:00 pm JOhn pulled out of Crestview Marine in Wichita for the 1,100 mile trip back to Salt Lake City. I flew home that evening back to SLC. John called me to let me know that everything was going okay. The following morning he emailed me to let me know he was back on the road. John pulled into the Salt Lake Valley on Sunday April 20th at 3:00 pm. Just 24 hours after he left Wichita with our boat. He was a great guy to deal with and represented himself and USHIP well. I will recommend USHIP and John to anyone who needs something hauled. Thanks, Chad Cox
