Question:
7/19/2014
Tim, I am entering my bid to transport your boat. Please look over my 39 reviews. Also - please note the bid expiration date. Thanks -- Jentlman7Report a Violation
Response: Hello Shipper, What insurance do you have? Will the boat be covered if it stolen or damaged? The boat is new from a private residents. The person I bought this boat from bought it and never used it so, yes it is new. It would need to be picked up from her house. If you decided to hall it upside down you would have to take the battery out first. Thanks, Tim7/21/2014Report a Violation
Response: Tim -- Hello, I will plan to first double wrap your Kayak and then secure it right side up with 6 hold down straps on my utility trailer. This has worked well with both river style and the longer sea kayaks. If you prefer I could also place it on the roof of my SUV and use the permanent roof rack as the anchor for the straps. This has worked fine also. RE: your insurance question-- As the carrier (driver) I am not eligible to sign up for trip insurance. However, as the Kayak owner you can arrange coverage with USHIP for the dollar value you want. I would probably be able to split the premium with you based on the amounts USHIP has quoted recently. That phone number is 800-698-7447 with ext. 847. You should mention to them that I am Marine Products Plus and that my completed trips have earned me VIP standing with USHIP. That should mean a lower insurance premium. Hope this answers your questions. Look forward to doing your transport. Jentlman7 AKA Paul7/21/2014Not in Violation
Response: Hello, Uship had me fix the description on the boat. Somehow I had it down as 34FT wide instead of 3.7FT wide. I included a picture as well. I would be OK with you shipping it on a utility trailer I'm just not sure how you are planning on propping up the electric motor. Please see the photo for reference. It looks like Uship cancels out all bids when you make a change to an add. Can you re-bid this shipment for the $468 you bid it for last? Thanks, Tim7/21/2014Report a Violation

Tim, Just want to point out that tow-away is not possible in your case since there is no trailer coming with your Kayak. Jentlman7Report a Violation

Tim, I just viewed the manufacturer's website for the ESCAPE 130. Very nice idea !!! Is yours a new one coming from a dealer?? Jentlman7Report a Violation

Tim, If you choose to have me do this transport your Kayak will be wrapped in 2 layers. First a quilted thick mover's blanket and then a waterproof tarp. Jentlman7 AKA PaulReport a Violation
Response: Hello, I was wondering if you received the last email I sent you. Your quote got canceled and I was wondering if you could re-send it so I could select your company for my shipping. Your price was $467.76 I believe. Thanks, Tim7/21/2014Report a Violation
Response: Tim, Not sure when or why my bid to you got cancelled but I will send the replacement at about 7:30 Tuesday morning when I am again at my home computer. Also I will repeat the info I sent you RE: trip insurance. Paul7/22/2014Report a Violation
