We were shipping a 30' scarab from KY to CA. Universal Dynamics (chrisship)was our service provider. During the bid/shipment process there seemed to be little communication but somehow things fell together. On our way to the pickup location we noticed a boat that looked very much like the one we had just purchased. Sure enough, it was our boat! We flagged the driver down after speaking w/ the seller to verify that was indeed our boat. He pulled over and we were able to check out the boat (and the driver). We exchanged numbers in case something happened along the way. Nothing else was heard until the boat arrive a few days early! The delivery was VERY early in the morning (6AM). Thank goodness we have a 3 mo old son so we were up. The only thing I can say that was bad was that our jack stand was stolen somewhere btw KY and CA. Not the fault of the driver but still bad luck. uShip was fairly easy to use (posting the ad was easy, learning the bidding proess wasn't so intuitive). We had great prices and good competetion for service. We were able to ship our boat at significant savings. uShip made it easy to check up on the providers (MC numbers and other feedback).
