uShip and my shipper (Anne's Limo) came to my rescue after I made a purchase of a 24' Chris Craft in upper New York. I live in Sacramento and bought the Chris Craft for a good price on Ebay. The problem then became "How to get the boat across the country to Sacramento". I was lucky enough to find uShip and got a lot of great quotes (especially when compared to the regular vehicle shipping companies who wanted twice as much). During the bidding process, I found out from the seller that the boat trailer might not be road worthy. This caused me frustration and added another problem to the shipping problem. I was about to buy a new trailer for the boat at great expense when one of the bidders (Anne's Limo) asked if I was having any problems. I explained my trailer problem, and Robert offered to go visit the seller, examine the trailer, and upgrade it (if necessary). It turned out all it needed was new tires and a coupler adapter. Robert did this locally, and also acquired a trailer permit to drive it across the country. This saved me a ton of worry and money, and they had also submitted a very good bid on the transportation. The actual shipment was accomplished in four days, and Robert called along the way to update me on their progress. Thanks to uShip and Anne's Limo, I got my boat shipped across the country quickly, and with a minimum of worry.
