I couldn't be more pleased. I found some floating docks for sale on Ebay in NJ. I live in Annapolis, MD. My wife looked at me like "SO --> Good luck with your little car." She had a good point since there are 3 of them at over 1,500# each and since they are 6ft * 20ft and are 2ft tall each! Would have been a real interesting sight of me trying to figure out how to move those with a Volvo!
I found USHIP.COM and was able to list the potential shipment (for the yet unpurchased docks) and got 4 responses within 24 hours! All of the bids were well within my pricerange (yeah, I got a GREAT deal!). I was then good to go to buy the docks. (And feeling mighty proud of myself at that for "figuring out a way.")
So, bought the docks on Ebay from the marina in NJ and then accepted the bid from Service Provider "crabbelle" (guys name is Bobby) and it couldn't have been easier!
My Service Provider took care of EVERYTHING! I gave him the contact information and addresses for pickup and dropoff. He was SUPER responsive to every inquiry I had (hey, I don't do this for a living or anything, so lots of questions.) ABRACADABRA!
Next thing I know - the docks are delivered and I'm collecting the praises from all my friends (who were gonna have to pitch in to build'em if I hadn't bought them).
Oh, and my wife is ecstatic as well, because all of this including the shipping from USHIP.COM was at 1/3 of the cost of building the docks!
To celebrate, we put out some crabpots off the dock and 2 days later had dozen Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs. Life's good!
So, give it a shot -- it worked for me and I saved a boatload and didn't even break a sweat!
Definitely gonna use USHIP again.
