I bought a pontoon boat in wisconsin, in the water,and had to have it prept for shippment to california. HighwaymanTrucking, Mike Metz was a very competitive bidder, but had no uship reference experience (I accepted his bid pending personal contact). After several conversations, I felt comfortable enough to use his services. Turns out he has years of experience in the trucking business, just not with uship. Mike's delivery service was perfect, he cared about even the littlest detail on the boat, did not get aggravated at the california border when they quarantined the boat for several hours (apparently the company I hired to prep the boat didn,t do as good a job as they should have), he simply called me, and then went to sleep. This was my first experience with Uship and it was better than ever expected. Thank you Mike Metz, and thanks to uship. The cost was about what I figured it would cost me to drive back and forth, with rooms and food, but it saved me 6-7 days of my time.
