Question:
7/22/2014
Shay, Will the week of 8/17 work for you? I provide Licensed and Insured transport,The following info. is right from USHIPS Safe Shipping Guide "USHIP does not prequalify or validate the claims of transporters with respect to their license, insurance or other operating authority. USHIP does not and, in fact, cannot legally qualify movers on your behalf " That is your responsibility. My account is SaferWatch monitored. PLEASE NOTE THE SEAL ON MY COMPANY PROFILE. This is a 3rd party company that checks to see that I have proper MC & DOT numbers required for legal transportation as well as COMMERCIAL INSURANCE. This is the way you can tell for sure that I'm a legitimate company with insurance. You will receive a certificate of insurance prior to pick up. Your shipment will be covered up to $100,000.I offer proper transport to protect your investment. Call USHIP customer service with any questions on Licensed and Insured transport. ThanksReport a Violation
Response: I have checked with our people in FL and that week is a go. So as soon as you make the offer we will accept the bid. Shay. 7/22/2014Report a Violation
Response: Good Morning Shay, Do you still require transport? I was a little confused with one of your answers to another question. If so can you please provide me with the year,make and model of the boat. I would like an idea of the drag. If not please keep me in mind for any future shipments. Thank You, Capt. Greg Thomas Inc. Hudson, Fl.7/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: Yes we still meet he boat shipped and the date you specified works. Boat-1979 Monark fiberglass 15.6 length ---trailer-1978 Mona 18.6 length . Combine width 7'. Combine hight 5'. Total weight 1500 lbs(app). 7/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: Thanks for the info. To be perfectly honest with you the age of the trailer concerns me a bit. Have you personally inspected the trailer? Does the trailer have any rot, how are the springs, when were the bearings replaced and serviced and how old are the tires and is there a spare tire? Lights work as well? Sorry for all the questions, don't want any surprises. I know it's a small boat but it's a lot of miles. Thanks7/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: I understand. I last saw the trailer 1 1/2 years ago and it was in great condition. The boat and trailer belong to my husbands grandparents who take immaculate care of their things. They say it has no rot, springs are perfect, does not know how old tires are but they are in fine condition, 3 spares on trailer/in boat, bearings were regreased and re packed 6 months ago, lights and wires afe brand new 6 months ago. 7/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ok, tires typically look great but can be questionable. I'm close enough to the pick up location that I can pick up the boat and bring it back to my location and go through the trailer and check out the trailer. Again sorry for the concern, don't want to be broken down on the side of the hwy. I've calculated the miles and tolls and the best price I can offer you would be $1499. This price is all inclusive and includes $100,000 in commercial cargo insurance. I require no money up front, pay at delivery. Please let me know if this will work for you. 7/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: Shay, I provide Licensed and Insured transport as well, my required MC number is clearly posted on my company profile. If you click on the number it directs you to the federal website that monitors transport authority and insurance, you will see they are both active. You will also receive a Commercial Certificate of insurance when booked for your records, this will also act as proof of insurance. I hate to keep harping on this fact but I consider it extremely important to protect you investment. Thank You7/23/2014Report a Violation

Sorry you feel my 100% positive feed back with all five star service and zero cancelations is not sufficient we are fully licensed and insured with 1 million in liability and 250k in cargo insurance. Fully DOT compliant and Saferwatch verified. 10 years in business and zero claims with over 2 million miles. Good luck finding a more qualified transporter to handle this shipment.Not in Violation
Response: Wow! Our choice to search elsewhere was based on there only being 13 reviews of your services. We were looking for a wider array of customer reviews. But rest assured if I had any reservations about not using you before, the attitude portrayed in your question, which by the way wasn't a question at all, deffinantly reassured me that I made the right choice declining you. Good luck with your people skills in the service industry. After a closer review of your company's page, I find we were mistaken to have written you off for nothing more then the number of your reviews. I see that the reviews you do have are glowing. As someone new to uship that has only had one experience of a very last minute cancellation, I was tentitive to once again go with someone with few reviews. While I still feel that the correspondence was unprofessional, I concede that we should have done more research before dismissing you. Please contact again if you would like to discuss making this shipment happen.7/22/2014Report a Violation
Response: Take it how you want just said Sorry my high reviews and over qualification was not sufficient for you. 7/22/2014Not in Violation
Response: It's ok and I understand your skepticism and I did not mean to come off as rude. After reading my response I can see how you could have taken it but I assure you it was not intended that way. I have worked very hard for my reputation and I am very big on communication and customer service unfortunately we are new to uShip but certainly not the shipping industry. Unfortunately I have already booked that truck with a RV shall something change I will rebid. Thank You Tim W7/22/2014Report a Violation

1600, fully insured. Let me know if interested and I will place a bid. Thanks Report a Violation
Question:
7/23/2014
1,000 is kind of low don't you think? That will barely cover the fuel and tolls. Would love a NH run, but perhaps you would or will reconsider your offer price?Not in Violation

Hi Shipper, I can pick up your boat within your time frame and bring it right to you. Please click on my name and check out my Co. SURF N TURF SHIPPING and my over 410 100% positive boat feedbacks and pic's. I am the #1 boat transporter on Uship, and Uship's only Double Platinum Preferred Shipper. If this would work or if you have any questions, please let me know and I'll place a competitive bid. Thanks, Davefred w/>>SURFNTURFSHIPPING<<.. Report a Violation
Response: Yes please enter a bid. Sounds good. Go ahead and place your bid and we'll go from there.7/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: Thanks though your offer price is extremely low and that is why you are getting the newer shippers. Tolls alone are at least 150.00. Our price would be for 1600.00. Most qualified shippers get at least 1-1.50 a mile. Hope this helps and good luck. Thanks Davefred 7/23/2014Not in Violation

You're also new to uShip? My recent tow-away success with a Honda Civic, with my (even smaller) number of glowing feedback, demonstrates the wide variety of excellent people here. I expected your denial, frankly, but the speed was surprising. So, I'll transport a BBQ trailer today, and a 25' antique canoe (see new photo!) to Alabama this weekend. Good luck.Not in Violation
Response: The only reason we denied your id was your weight limit. I believe the boat to be aprox 1500-1800 lbs but am not 100% sure. I would hate to have you accept the shipment then have something not work out because the seller had the weight wrong. 7/23/2014Report a Violation

Hi. We could bring it up for $1250 around mid august. Please check out our company info and reviews and let us know if we can be of service.Report a Violation
Response: That price is doable for us. If you make the bid we will accept it. 7/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: Thats great!!! but before i can place a bid, you will need to change your offer price to $1250. I will be watching your listing and as soon as its changed i will place a bid.7/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: Price updated. Just reading over your insurance and making sure I understand correctly that you are covered for property and liability. Meaning if any accident were to happen our boat and others property would be covered? Or would we need to purchase additional insurance. Sorry for stupid questions. New to uship and just getting my feet wet.7/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: Yes, we carry $750,000 of commercial liability and $200,000 of cargo coverage. Your boat will be covered completely while in our possession. Please ask as many questions as you need to feel comfortable. 7/23/2014Report a Violation
