Purchased a 28 ft boat in Marathon Fl and needed it delivered to Boston Ma over a 1600 mile trip. This is the first time I have conducted business this far from home and there was a lot of stess and agrivation dealing long distance with brokers, boat yards, marine surveyors and insurance companies. The transaction required 2 trips to Marathon which is only 50 miles from Key West. Two flights, two rental cars, 5 travel days and 3 nights lodging. When the deal was completed it was now my job get the boat transported back to Boston. I first posted the load on USHIP.com and also sought prices from the usual marine sources. I gathered over a dozen prices though some of the marine sources failed to respond. Overall the best and most consistant prices came through USHIP.com. I selected Freedom Boat Transport LLC. a new carrier on USHIP.com because of their reasonable price and the quality type equipment they use. The tranasction went very well. To our relief, from the moment we accepted the bid till the boat landed at our home boat yard, everything went smoothly. We will definetly use USHIP again.
