NEEDED TO BRING PONTOON BOAT FROM TEXAS TO GEORGIA BECAUSE MY DAUGHTER ACQUIRED IT AS PART OF A HOME SHE BOUGHT ON A LAKE. SHE ALREADY HAD A BOAT SO GAVE IT TO ME. I LOOKED INTO MOVING THE BOAT AND FOUND USHIP THROUGH IBOATS.COM SERVICES. I FILLED OUT THE BID FORM BUT DID NOT COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND THE CATEGORIES SO MISTAKINGLY ENTERED IT AS "OTHER" INSTEAD OF "BOATS AND TRAILERS" THIS BOAT DID NOT HAVE A TRAILER. LUCKILY, BOAT MOVERS INC LOOKED AT THIS CATEGORY AND GAVE ME A BID. THIS WAS THE ONLY BID I RECEIVED BUT THE PRICE WAS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF WHAT I EXPECTED TO PAY SO I ACCEPTED IT. SINCE I HAD SOME TIME, I WAS ABLE TOPAY IN ADVANCE AND SCHEDULE THE PICK UP DATE WHICH WAS NECESSARY TO ACCOMODATE MY DAUGHTERS WORK SCHEDULE. THE BOAT WAS PICKED UP AND DELIVERED IN PERFECT CONDITION. ALL INVOLVED WERE VERY FREINDLY AND EVEN THOUGH IT WAS NOT NECESSSARY I'M SURE THEY WOULD HAVE ACCOMODATED MOST COMMON PROBLEMS THAT MAY HAVE ARISEN. THANKS
