hi John. did you mean to put in an offer of 1550? thanks and let me know if you have any questions, John Wright from Warwick, RI with WrightRI :-)Report a Violation
Response: Hi John. I did not want to put any offered price but, for some reason, USHIP mobile forced me to add the offered price. I complained to USHIP. I seek the best price balanced against fair delivery terms and timeframe. I hope I answered your question. John. 12/25/2013Report a Violation
Response: ok, I can understand that. if uShip doesn't get back to you then you might want to consider setting up another listing. if you do then you should use the full site to have full access and you'll be able to set it up correctly. what is your budget for the transport? I live in RI and can get it quickly. I'll get it to you in FL within your time frame. your trailer/boat will be treated with the utmost respect and you won't have to worry about it. you can see my reviews by clicking the number next to my ID where you'll see I provide excellent service and take very good care of the equipment entrusted to me. thanks and let me know if you have any questions, John Wright from Warwick, RI with WrightRI :-) 12/25/2013Not in Violation
Response: Hi John, Thanks for the message. My budget is a consideration of the transport collection date, transport time, transport method, insurance, and finally the price. I hope I answered your question. Now, please tell me your proposed collection date, transport time, transport method, insurance, and your best price. Thanks and merry Christmas, John. 12/25/2013Report a Violation
Response: I can be flexible on pick up/delivery. after giving your seller 2+ days notice, I'd like to pick it up by the 11th of January and deliver it by the 14th. your boat will be towed to you on it's own trailer. if needed I can grease the bearings and I carry aux lights in case the trailer lights don't work. if needed, I will provide the trailer plate and a spare tire. while in transit, your boat will be covered for any damage I cause. if this works for you, I can do your transport for 1,200. ty for your consideration, John Wright from Warwick, RI with WrightRI :-)12/26/2013Report a Violation
Response: Hi John. Thank you for your offer. Moving the boat on its own trailer is OK. What type of insurance do you offer? In other words, the risk of damage or theft is significantly higher pulling my boat rather than transporting in an enclosed trailer. Therefore my concern and question to you. Your timeframe works. Your price is a bit high. Can you do better? Thanks. Happy holidays. John. 12/26/2013Report a Violation
shipper you need to reset your auction so a bid can be placed.ill be up there first of feb and can haul her back down for 1200 dot legal insured transporter please review my profile and feedback thxReport a Violation
Response: Hi, Thanks for the mail. I hope I repaired the auction. I do want to have competitive bids in the shipment. Frankly, I am not a fan of the new USHIP site. I have been a customer for years and never had such problems listing a simple shipment such as my boat. All the best, and happy holidays. John. 12/26/2013Report a Violation
Response: still cant place a bid.12/27/2013Report a Violation
Response: Hi. I am so sorry. Thanks for telling me ( again ). When I get home late tonight from travelling, I will look at the listing on a PC and not on a little handheld device. Maybe then I can figure out what is wrong with the listing. Happy holidays. John. Hi, I have been told by USHIP to relist the boat. This will allow for bids. There is no other way to change the listing to a bid format. Please look for the relisted boat. Please make a bid. Thanks. John.12/27/2013Report a Violation
Hi John, I'm Tina with Doughboy Express. We would like to offer you our transport services for your boat. We will be in Boston on Wed, Jan 22 making a trailer delivery and then heading back down the east coast. We could tow-away for $1000. We dont carry insurance but Uship offers a great and economical transport insurance. Many of our previous clients have insured their items with Uship and were pleased with the coverage. Check our feedback, we have a 5-star rating. Pleaae consider our bid, thank you.Report a Violation
Response: Hi Tina. Thank you for your offer. Your offer is a bit high. But, let me check with the seller. A lot of my acceptance depends on the sellers availability. If the seller can meet you, and hopefully he can, then, with sown luck, we can make the dollars work for the both of us. Thanks. John. 1/20/2014Report a Violation
Response: Sounds good John. We can be flexible to the sellers meet date, just let us know. We make our delivery in Boston on Wed but may be able to layover if necessary to transport for you. Thank you, Tina1/20/2014Report a Violation
hello john, i live approximately 4 hours from your pickup location. i am available and flexible. i have insurance but wood recommend the additional uship coverage. for a small fee that offers peace of mind. also i wood ask if there is a valid license plate on the trailer for transport? i can make this happen (tow away) for $1000 all inclusive. this is a very toll expensive route as well at this point fuel is up. if this is in your ball park please request a bid from me when you set up your auction. thank you rob-fstboat1Report a Violation
Response: Hi Rob, I am trying to repair my listing so you can bid on the boat transport. I had this problem previously. I have reached out to USHIP customer service in the hope they can resolve the problem. Please stand by. Any minute! I hope. John. 1/21/2014Report a Violation
Nice looking boat. We had one of those when I was a kid! I hardly ever bid on USHIP Therefore I have no reviews , also when I do bid I get outbid or people cancel the bids and I have NEVER been successful on this site, Quite frankly your Offer is too low. The net amount to anyone accepting it is 462 dollars after uship fees. That would not even cover gas and tolls to Miami,I buy trailers in Ga and sell them on cape cod I go down about every six weeks and do not mind going the extra distance to FL. as long as its worth my while. Plus I would have to drive from the cape to Billerica to pick up the boat (2hours) I suggest you up the offer to at least $1000. Does that make sense? I am going down in about ten days and would be happy to haul it for that since I am going that way anyway. Report a Violation
Response: Hi, Thanks for the mail. I have been told to relist the boat allowing for bids. I did not intend for the auction to be a named price. Please look for my boat to be relisted. Please provide a bid. Thanks. John. 1/22/2014Report a Violation
Response: I am leaving within the next ten days. Are you going to relist this boat?1/23/2014Report a Violation
Hi john, do you still need this shipped? I can do this for your asking price. I can pick up asap. Please let me know. Thank you MikeReport a Violation
Response: Hi Mike. Thanks for the mail. I was going to rely at and saw your mail. It is very interesting. A few questions? What type of service are you offering? What type of equipment? Can you give me a timeframe for pick up and delivery? Do you have insurance? Thanks. John. 1/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: Thank you for the response. I will towing this behind truck or I will be placing your boat and trailer on my gooseneck trailer. this is a add on to my return trip. thats why I can do it at this price. yes I am insured. I can pick up any time in the next day or 21/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: Hi, I agree with your plan to move the boat. Please accept my offer. We can arrange a date and time with the seller for the pickup of the boat. The only logistical issue we have is the tag on the trailer. However, if you are using your gooseneck the wheels will not be on the road so a tag is not needed for the trailer. I have a valid tag in Miami for the trailer that can be with you or the seller via overnight courier. The only delay would be Sunday. As the overnight couriers do not typically delver on Sundays. Pleaseletme know your thoughts and I am excited about having my boat moving south to me. Last thing, please confirm your schedule (dates) both for pickup and delivery. All the best. John. 1/24/2014Report a Violation
Response: No worries I also Have Transport tag if needed. AS of right now I can pick up tomorrow after noon or first thing Sunday morning. Does this work for you 1/24/2014Report a Violation
Response: Hi. I think it does. I have to contact the seller and confirm his availability. When will you deliver to me? Thanks. John. 1/24/2014Report a Violation
Response: I have 2 stops along the way. If I get out of here this weekend you should have your boat by Friday.1/24/2014Report a Violation
Response: Hi, Perfect. Your stated timeframe for delivery works for me. The only delay that I see is the confirmation of the seller being able to meet you. I have mailed him and texted him. Next, I will call him! Standby please. I am calling the seller right now. Thanks. John. Hi, Just spoke to the seller. He is checking to make sure access is granted to the storage yard this weekend where the boat is located. Given access, the seller can meet you. I think this is going to happen. I'll be back to you with a confirmation as soon as I hear back from the seller. Hopefully, within a few minutes. All the best. John.1/24/2014Report a Violation
Response: OK I will stand by 1/24/2014Report a Violation

We can provide tow-away service at $1150 total. Full insurance, up to $300,000, is included, at no additional charge. Since we are a team-driver company (husband/wife), we rarely stop during this type of run. Additionally, we take precautions to ensure you vessel/trailer are secure during transport; we have specialized cables/locks for ensuring the trailer stays attached to our vehicle and that the boat stays on the trailer. Please see our reviews/profile (photo of 45ft boat we safely transported from SF to MA during the last snow storm). Let us know if we can be of service. LeighReport a Violation
