This was a BIG DEAL for my family. I was being reassigned by my employers and I had a boat that I was uncomfortable towing any sort of distance. It looked like selling it was the only thing that made sense. However, my daughters loved their boat, Girls' Ride. The thought of parting with it was really upsetting them. But as good troopers and for the good of the family they pretty much kept it to themselves. I wasn't too happy about letting her go either. In fact I dragged my feet for over a month before I started to take any action to sell it. Then, with less then a week to go before I had to leave, everyones' feelings on the matter came out. Now, I was scrambling to find a berth and a shipper to get it to our new home in Georgia. The berth seemed to fall right into my lap. I am retired from the US Army and the MWR facility happened to have slips on the local lake. Great price too! Now I had to get it there. That's where USHIP and SUPERBOB01 came in. With less then a week to get things happening, I was understandably concerned. How was I going to find a transporter that I trusted and at a price I could afford? I went online and searched on boat transporters. USHIP caught my eye right off. I checked it out and I liked what I saw so I posted my shipment and crossed my fingers. Within two days I had several inquerries and two solid bids from transporters with good reps and feedback. I picked SUPERBOB01 because his credentials were solid and he could meet my timelines. In fact, things looked so good, it almost seemed too good to be true. But, as it turned out, sometimes things DO happen exactly as planned. At least for me this time. Bob (SUPERBOB01) was right there when he said he would, dropped it off at her new home lake right when he said he would and things couldn't have worked out better. USHIP provides a great service and as long as you stick with solid providers like SUPERBOB01, it seems to me you can't go wrong. Thanks all!
