We started in the shipping business by accident. I own a business selling new Ram Leather interiors, and I bought an enclosed trailer to transport them all across the country to try and save my customers money on shipping. I started looking on USHIP to find items to bring back along my way so that I wouldn't return empty.
I then got into shipping campers and boats, and now it seems that I do more shipping than I do selling interiors. Being that we do so much shipping I carry commercial insurance that covers anything I carry up to $50,000.
We have shipped everything from surfboards to kittens and dogs (which we love to do). I have a truck that can pull just about any camper or boat up to around 10,000 pounds. I also pull my enclosed trailer, which is an 18 foot trailer with a 2 foot V in the front, making it 20 ft long overall and it is 7 ft. wide.
