I live in Alberta, Canada. I bought a boat on Ebay in September of 2013 but because of weather concerns had the boat stored until this spring. In May, I contacted Uship and accepted a bid to transport the boat to Great Falls Montana where I planned to meet the shipper and transport the boat across the border. That shipper called a week before the scheduled delivery and said that he had a young relative die in a car crash and would have to delay delivery by about a week. That was the last I heard from him. After 10 days of attempting to contact him by phone and email, I contacted Uship who provided me with a credit and I re-advertised. I accepted a bid that was about $500 more than the previous bid because I did not wish to repeat the previous experience. I worked with the shipper to have the boat delivered to Montana on the weekend and was successful in bringing the boat home. Unfortunately the Ebay seller was less than truthful about the condition of the boat but given the time that elapsed between the purchase and the delivery, I guess I am without recourse. As the Romans said "Caveat Emptor." I will say that the shipping was trouble free and I would use Uship and this shipper again without hesitation.
