I purchased a tandem trailer to move my sailboat from Gananoque to Vernon B.C. After getting several quotes over $12,000 from boat hauling companies I put an auction up on the uShip website to see if I could actually afford to move the vessel. Tim offered me a quote that easily saved me $8000.00 and the timing was absolutely perfect for me. He let me know when he was setting out and arrived within an hour of what he said his GPS was predicting. I was delighted to see the boat and even more pleased to see that the contents were just as I had stowed them (my responsibility). Tim was great, super easy to deal with very professional and very nice. I will most certainly use his services again if I need anything transported and might even go sailing with him next time he's out in this part of the country. uShip provided a great way for me to find a shipper, without them I don't think I'd still have my boat. Thanks for that. L.F.
