I chose A & R Transport to pick-up and deliver my newly purchased boat from New Jersey to Florida. Charlie Rakes, the owner/operator was extremely pleasant and professional. He was willing to work around my schedule for both pick-up and delivery. He made arrangements with the previous owner of the boat for pick-up and called to notify me of the appointment time. He called me again after he arrived and as soon as he took delivery and was heading south with my boat. Charlie continued to keep in contact with me the entire trip, keeping me notified of his location. The boat arrived exactly when promised. This was my first boat purchase, therefore, I was extremely anxious to get my newly purchased 22' McKee Craft back to Florida. Having someone like Charlie to take care of my boat was wonderful and reassuring. It was great to know that the boat was going to make its way to Florida safely without me having to make the drive myself. I would certainly recommend A & R Transport and will not hesitate to contact them again.
