I've always wanted a boat but couldn't afford it. My sister and Brother in-law offered their boat so my 4 kids could enjoy a true family experience. Only problem was getting it from Denver to New York. They had moved to Florida and left the boat in storage. I didn’t think it could be cost effective to transport the boat such a distance, until I learned about Uship. I was very reluctant to commit to a shipper that I couldn’t first meet. But the prices were very attractive and affordable. I studied many provider’s feedback & profiles vs. bids, and finally choose Paul at Quickship2. What sold me on Paul was the feedback from a shipper where Paul used his own money to fix things for the shipper and get the boat delivered as promised. Little did I know how important that quality was to become to me. As soon as I made my selection, Paul was in immediate contact and put all my concerns at rest. He stayed in contact the entire trip calling me 3 & 4 times a day. Always advising me his progress or problem and asked permission 1st, before touching a thing. I had an Extremely positive Uship experience! Paul is completely professional, responsible, and thorough. 1800 miles away, the boat sat for yrs, no challenge was big enough for Paul to over come (incurred delays due to my trailer flats, broken hitch, he purchased tires & chains, secured boat) and delivered it a day early for the bid price, and in better condition then he found it. As Paul say’s “He treat the boat as his own until he hand it to me” and he means it! Great Job! I've recomand Uship to everyone who's asked my about my boat. Thanks to Uship and Paul, I’m a proud boat owner.
