So our story begins with a lazy Sunday night, watching TV and waiting for the week to begin. My husband is surfing e-bay, looking at boats - one of his obsessions - and decides with 20 seconds left to bid on a boat thinking that we would NEVER win, the deal was just TOO good to be true. Well, don't you know that he wins the boat! Yikes! Now we are the proud owners of a boat in Missouri, we live in Pennsylvania and enjoy boating in Maryanland. It's a 17 hour trip one way to get the boat and certainly much longer towing it home. My husbands time is so limited with work that we just didn't know what to do. After stumbling across Uship on Google I decide to post an add, not really knowing if this is what he wanted to do, but hey, someone has to start the ball rolling. After getting several bids and doing our research on potential shippers, I convinced my husband to GO FOR IT and hire a transporter. We chose JonMar Transport and couldn't be happier. Our driver, Gary, took excellent care of our 2004 260 Sundancer. It was strapped down tight on his trailer and anything and everything that might go flying was securred tightly. He kept us posted on his progress the entire way and was just an all around great guy when we met him at the marina. In a time span of 2 weeks we bought a new boat, surveyed it and got it to Maryland so smoothly that we are already looking towards the next boat and using Uship and JonMar Transport to get it to us!
