Response: Dear Davefred I have no idea what this should cost give me a honest price and we are good to go. That 144 was a mistake obviously.4/27/2014Report a Violation
Response: Our bid would be for 2400.00. to tow your boat on your preferred dates. Thanks Davefred w/surfandturfshipping4/27/2014Report a Violation
Response: OK thanks let me go over this with my wife sounds fair.What would it cost to have it wrapped?4/27/2014Report a Violation

Response: Hi OK on wrap.Also just got accurate weights .tandem axle trailer is 890lbs andboat is 2100lbs. Registration current. FYI please let me know if $2400.00 is total tax included. Thnx4/28/2014Report a Violation
Response: Yes 2400 is all inclusive though I think Uship might charge you a charge on your end. Thanks Davefred4/28/2014Report a Violation
Response: How do I find Uship cost ? and how much deposit to get this going?4/28/2014Report a Violation
Response: You have to change to open bid or 2400.00 and then you can put down a deposit and then pay the balance when your boat arrives. Also, you could just pay it all through Uship and then they give you a code to release funds once your boat is delivered. Uship does not let us see what yur cost or the amount of the deposit. Thanks Davefred4/28/2014Not in Violation
Response: OK thanks after work today I will do it.5/1/2014Report a Violation

Rick: Your auction has an offer of $144.00 which I'm sure is a mistake. just to let you know when you use the offer tab, there is nowhere to place a bid . only to accept your offer of $144 you most likely won't have many takers at that price.Hello Dan here with Lakefront Enterprises LLC. out of Ft.

Response: I changed bid price honestly I have know idea what this will or should cost that's why Im here.Please Bid for me.4/27/2014Report a Violation
Response: Rick: Thanks for your response and bid request, I think you will see most of the transporters on this site are professionals and transport items for a living.with insurance at a premium and fuel at $4.09 a gallon average, a transporter needs to get around $1.25 a mile to make money . some charge more some less it just depends if they are looking for a back haul or if their just trying to get home for a few days. I hope this helps in your decision on choosing a transporter. I will place a bid for your consideration. Thanks again Dan4/28/2014Report a Violation
Response: OK4/28/2014Report a Violation
Response: Rick : The format you have chosen won't allow anyone to place a bid , they can only accept your offer of $1444. you might need to get with u-ship to change that. When it is changed send me a bid request and I will bid. There is no use in me putting it in the answer forum because you can't accept it there anyway. Thanks again Dan4/28/2014Report a Violation
Response: I am not sure what you are talking about. I put $1444.00 because I have no Idea what the real cost is if you want my business give me a bid on answer form and if I accept it we will go thru proper channel on invoice and such. Thanx for your time.4/28/2014Report a Violation
Question:

I have hauled many air boats and have a few questions, is this just a hull and trailer with no motor or a complete air boat? The weight seems rather light, also will the trailer have a current registration or temporary tags on it? Thanks from aiwironReport a Violation
Response: yes hello yeah you're right weight is. wrong the trailer is about 890 the boat is about 2100 its a tandem axle trailer and it is registered current. 4/28/2014Report a Violation
Response: Rick, Thanks for responding with a clarification on the configuration of your boat, with the engine and cage this causes a large drag on the pull vehicle. The cost of fuel alone would be more than your budget, I could offer a realistic bid but I believe it would be more than your budget.4/28/2014Report a Violation
Response: I understand. Lets get a fair bid so I can compare apples to apples. thanks4/28/2014Report a Violation
Response: No one can bid since it is listed as an offer.5/3/2014Report a Violation
Response: I got one bid so far.... and I cant change it from being an offer to WHAT? I don't get this Uship listing thing its getting frustrating. If you guys want my business send me your bid or except the offer I now have up I need to make a decision soon. Thanks.5/3/2014Report a Violation

Good morning. Are you flexible on your dates? If so I could probably save you a lot of money as I might be going that way within two weeks. I live not far from Inverness Fl and I can find some place to shrink wrap it for you. Report a Violation
Response: Yes what dates work for you,and how much can you deliver it for and do you have references? 5/1/2014Report a Violation
Response: Hi Rick, yes I do have other reffences you can have checked out. You can also read the feed back from customers on here. I am in the processe of trying to setup another part of the load for this trip. If everything works out I should be able to save you money. I will know more in a few days. 5/2/2014Report a Violation
Response: Hi Carguy, Let me know a price I can have the boat released sooner or later it is flexible I just uped the price to $1800.00. If you are anybody on this form can do it for that price I will be glad to send a deposit. So I don't have to shop around this. I looked into renting a truck and driving it back myself and that's not what I want to do.I have to work. I would prefer a pro transporter to do this.I need to make a decision soon. So far Ive received 1 bid here.5/3/2014Report a Violation
