Shipping a Donzi boat from Las Vegas to Buffalo NY? Have I lost my mind? My first experience with uShip was positive. A time saving way for me to conduct business. My shipper was on time and within budget. Not sure how he made any money, as the total transaction was $1100 or only $0.42 per mile, leaving about half that amount to cover depreciation, maintenance, driver's time and profit. My shipper's bid was less than one-half of the highest bid. I relied in-part on his positive feedback (26 positives and no negatives), his consistently good communication and agreement to schedule his time around my travel dates. Always be careful, ask a lot of questions and take any statement with a grain of salt. Carry your own insurance so as not to be reliant on the carrier's coverage. No system like this can be perfect, but my transaction clearly met my (high) expectations. And I'm now the owner of the boat I've wanted all my life. Winters in Buffalo NY are hard, but boy, are the summers ever great!
