We bid on the boat and won the auction, then faced the challenge of getting our BIG BOAT from Las Vegas to Fresno! We listed our haul on uShip and were pleasantly surprised when the bids came in lower than we had expected. We didn't take the lowest bid but decided to go with Ralph who had more than 60 positive feedbacks on uShip. His experience and professionalism really paid off on this challenging wide load (10 1/2 feet wide by 29 feet long). Because of the oversized load, we had to secure permits for both Nevada and Calfornia and follow a specified route. This added extra miles and hours (and diesel!) to the trip but Ralph never complained. Then there were the bearings on our boat trailer that overheated and had to be changed in Barstow. Ralph was right there next to me at Autozone, searching for the right sized bearings, helping change the bearings in the parking lot and getting that Regal back on the road! Ralph faced every challenge with a calm, can-do attitude and never complained about the delays. A 6-7 hour haul turned into 12 hours yet Ralph remained positive and professional throughout. We're back in Fresno, working on the boat and getting it ready to launch. We'll give Ralph and call when we're ready to haul it to the Delta...and hopefully take him out on the river to catch a few fish before he heads back to Utah! uShip provides a great service by connecting people with a job to do with people who can get the job done! Thanks...
