I purchased a 22 foot Boston Whaler via a online government auction. I am located in California and the boat was located in Florida. It was a leap of faith to spend a large amount of cash relying on only 4 pics of the boat. After the gut-wrenching auction was extended several times I was faced with the problem of transportation to California. Another big leap-of-faith. I searched the web and found USHIP. After our shipment was listed we received several bids. Selecting a shipper was not easy. Most had good reviews and some were a little suspect. One shipper even contacted us over the phone and solicited my job. I discovered that this was not an ethical USHIP move and broke of contact. I selected Mel of CustomExpressDelivery bassed on his feedback from previous customers, number of repeat customers, and price. Mel picked up the boat, inspected it for me, performed some minor maintenance, and picked a new spare tire. Four days later the boat was in California and in my possession. Mel made several phone calls updating the progress and condition of the trailer. I am very happy that I chose USHIP and Mel to transport my property. I recommend Mel and will be calling him in the future for my hauling needs.
