Bob my $7500 offer comes with insurance to cover your boat. You can click on my profile and you will see the "Safer" logo which is evidence of my legality and proof that I carry the required amount of insurance as per DOT regulations. Uship does not check or screen its transporters for insurance so you would need to do that yourself.Report a Violation
Question:
3/2/2014
Bob can do this at $5900 if you book now. Report a Violation
Response: I have a much lower offer with a transporter who has only a few reviews. I would prefer to have you do the move. Could you do it for $5500 ? If extending the delivery to May 1st helps, I could live with that. Thanks Bob 3/3/2014Report a Violation
Question:
3/2/2014
The avg cost to ship a boat this size is $3-$4 per mile. Your offering price is too low, that is why you don't have any bids. If you are serious about getting it shipped you would need to remove your low offering price so transporters can make formal bids based on the market rate. Good luck.Report a Violation
Question:
3/18/2014
Bob, I will be in Texas this Friday. I can do this haul for you for you, but about your asking price I feel it is pretty low. A boat of your size and weight not to mention the hills for transport will eat our gas. This size boat typically goes for a rate about $3 a mile. It's boat transporting season, so transports are more selective for the loads. I would like to help if you are able to increase your bid.Report a Violation
Response: I have made a contract with a shipper, thanks for your input. Bob3/19/2014Report a Violation

Question:
4/27/2014
Bob your offering price is way too low. I suspect that someone realized that and that is why your boat never got shipped. If you want an experience, well referenced transporter you need to remove that low offering price and allow experienced transporters to bid. Otherwise you will be on here forever trying to move this boat because nobody is going to take your low price.Report a Violation
Response: Hi Charlie I'm presently out of town, returning tomorrow. If you 'd allow me a day or two to get home and discuss this with the boss (my wife), I could make a dicision. Thanks, bob Hi again, The boat is a 1988 model and part of my issue, misguided as it might be, is paying almost half as much as I paid for the boat comes with trepidation. Bob4/27/2014Report a Violation
Response: Oh Bob no problem. I do understand about a "boss lady". I've got one. As for the transport, only size and distance affect transport cost. It doesn't matter what the value of the item. A new expensive boat or an old cheap boat would have the same transport cost if they were the same size and going the same distance. Holler at me when get in.4/27/2014Report a Violation
Response: Hi Charlie I have requested a cancellation of the previous provider. According to the uship rules I must give him a reasonable time to respond. I have tried to contact him on a daily basis since this past wenesday with no response so I seriously doubt he will respond. That being said--can you promise me to get the boat by 5/16? I have been getting a lot o pressure from the boat yard to get it the H out of there!!! Bob4/29/2014Report a Violation
Response: I have a boat to pick up on the 9th. I should have it delivered to Detroit by the 13th. I will need to drive back to Tx. I can get it by Friday the 16th or no later than that Monday the 19th. That following weekend is Memorial Day. There will be no wideload travel starting Friday until Tuesday. That would be right in the middle of our transport which means I would have to shut down on Thursday and I couldn't resume until Tuesday. I don't want to have to sit on the road that long so if you don't mind I can put it in my lot and delivery after the Holiday.4/29/2014Report a Violation
Response: I haven't a problem with that. My main concern is getting it out of the boatyard in Fulton. When you say you're ready to accept the bid, I will adjust it to the 7900. Bob4/29/2014Report a Violation
Response: I'm ready. I have an opening for you. Just remove the "offering restriction" and I will submit my bid for you. Accept the bid asap and then I will have my admin send you a contract with scheduling and billing info on it. Please act accordingly so she can slot you quickly. Let's get this done quickly and I will get that boat out of Fulton for you.4/29/2014Report a Violation
