We shipped a boat from Florida to Michigan. We chose Backhauler because of price and timing. At first, we were concerned that because he was new to the system, he had not established a track record. He had only had one previous match, but the feedback was very strong. After communicating with him, we felt that he had the necessary experience so we hired him. It was an exceptional experience! He communicated with us before and during the haul with status updates. He took great care with the boat. At one time, approximately 25% into the trip, he noticed that the dealer had not properly packaged the bimini top within the boat and a point on the bimini top was starting to create a small tear in the canvas cover. He wrapped the protrusion with a towel and duck tape to mitigate the problem and called us for additional direction. This clearly shows that he takes his haul very seriously; a true professional. (I'm sure many truckers would not have even noticed the whole!) I would use uShip again and backhauler would be our prefered hauler if there was a future match.
