We will be around your area Friday. If you could have trailer at marina we could get it all loaded on our trailer and shipped for you. I will put in a bid for your consideration. Thank you and God Bless. Report a Violation
Question:
10/27/2013
hi...can you tell me what the overall length of the boat on the trailer would be, from the tongue to the furthest point aft? If of legal length for me to tow I could pick up your trailer and then deliver your boat. I have 100% positive feedback on uShip, lots of experience with boats and hold a USCG Captain's License, and would tow with a 1 ton Dodge diesel dually truck. If interested please provide the desired info and let me know what price you feel would be fair (it would be a 1450 mile one way trip for me from my home in SE Iowa). Thanks. bryanReport a Violation
Response: The boat and trailer are about 35 ft long , easily a legal load . The two small outboards could even be removed to shorten the rear overhang if need be. I had hoped to get this done for $1000 but would pay 1500 . I can book this immediately if you able to pick up the trailer also . 10/27/2013Report a Violation
Response: thanks for your reply....I couldn't do it for less than $1900 inclusive of fees and tolls, and it looks like you have a better offer so will not place a bid. best of luck with the shipment. bryan10/28/2013Report a Violation

11/16/2013
Hi GFI, I am interested in helping you with this boat. Could you please update me on the details with trailer, loading the boat, and why the last shipper cancelled. Thanks Cindy w/ C&P TransportReport a Violation
Response: He showed up with a passenger van to haul this. It will take at least a 3/4 ton pickup to haul this boat. He made a lot of other excuses but the bottom line was, he bit off more than he could chew. The boat is loaded on the trailer and strapped down. A quick check with the marina yesterday says they have not gotten the license plate yet that was mailed over a week ago. It should be ready to go completely very soon. Im not in a major hurry and the marina is being very helpful in getting things ready. 11/16/2013Report a Violation
Response: GFI, I understand. I will have no problem transporting this for you, I transport with a 2013 Ram 3500 HD dually with all the latest hitch products on the market and engine brake on truck. so this could be picked up in iowa and shipped straight to texas ? I would be available to pick this up on the 25th and deliver within 32 hours for a total of $1100. Thanks once again ! Cindy with C&P11/16/2013Report a Violation
Question:
11/17/2013
As for my bid below (andrewngina), I would like to let you know that I have a 1ton GMC 4x4 diesel dually w/all 3 types of attachments available to me (see pics on profile.) I can meet your budget of $1000 w/PU on 11/22; DO direct. I HAVE hauled heavier and longer items recently so yours will not be easy in comparison. I would love to help you get this load to its destination. There is some flexibility on PU/DO as long as I can get some sleep. Please note that I do NOT leave a load unattended while in transit. I sleep in my crew cab instead. Let me know if you are interested. Andrew, Little Enterprises of Iola, Tx.Report a Violation
Question:
11/17/2013
I apologize. In my editing of the message, I missed removing the word "not" in the following phrase, "...so yours will not be easy in comparison" when changing it from "...so yours will not be a concern." I meant to write that it WILL be easy in comparison. Thank you for your understanding. Andrew, Little Enterprises of Iola, Tx.Report a Violation
Question:
11/22/2013
Please verify that the plate has arrived so that we may PU ~4-5p today. Karen will wait for us after 5p if we schedule it in advance. Otherwise, I will be traveling SSW instead of SE if this is not confirmed by noon. Thank you for your attention. Andrew, Little Enterprises of Iola, Tx.Report a Violation
