Mel of Custom Express Delivery did an exceptional job for me. He calculated the weight and height of my boat and gave me a competitive bid that was half of what my own company wanted to charge me for shipping my personal boat across the country. His bid wasn't the lowest, but close to it and several hundred dollars lower than some of the bids I received. The other bidders wanted either several weeks to deliver my boat or several hundred dollars more to tow it directly and quickly. He phoned me once or twice a day to let me know where he was and what the status of the boat was. He was very quick and very reasonable. He was honest, and I appreciated the ability to pay him using Pay Pal for the deposit. I hesitated to use shipping providers that wanted cash or the equivalent up front. I feel I now have a friend in the shipping business.
