My family gave me a boat. This was a 14' Laser sailboat that I sailed with my grandfather when I was a kid. I wanted the boat, sure, but it was in New Hampshire and I now live in New Mexico. I priced having the boat shipped as freight, and it was way out of my price range. uShip allowed me to find someone who was willing to be creative in connecting two shipments so he could afford to charge me a rate I could pay. He towed the boat on it's trailer and took another load in his truck. Not only was it affordable, it happened fast. The boat made the 2000 mile transit to me within 14 days of my placing the ad. It's a great system.
