I live in Phoenix and sold an older sailboat to a gentleman on the coast of WA. We stewed over the transport issue-neither of us had the right vehicle nor the time to deal with it. Surfing the net I found uShip and posted the bid request. Of the 3 or 4 bids, my buyer and I agreed on "WHY"/Shane's services. This young man couldn't have been more professional and communicative. We were dealing with an odd schedule but he worked a transportation miracle! A tire company in Phoenix put new tires on for us and he was off on the road. About 40 miles NW of Las Vegas, a wheel fell off! The tire company hadn't torqued the lug nuts...but what was a potential disaster was minor. Shane got the boat towed back to Vegas - on the tire company's warranty, and handled the whole mess without complaint! He was on the road again the next day! After all's said and done, he honored our bid price but in retrospect I felt he deserved a lot more. He was truly a professional and the boat is now sitting in the backyard of the buyer...safe and sound! I can't thank him enough. Thank you, as well--for such a great service! Having this website is awesome! I'm already shopping for my next boat - who knows when and where I'll find it but I do know how I'll get it home!! uShip and WHY/Shane, if he's available!
