Jim and his crew at I95 were amazingly accomodating, flexible, responsive and professional in meeting my job's somewhat complex and changing requirements, and really making everything as easy and efficient for me as possible. The job was for them to ship my waverunner to a boat lift on a canal in SW Fla. where it will be kept for the winner; the catch was that there is no practical way for them to get it from the front of the house to the back of the house so they had to drive to a boat ramp about 5 miles away and ride the pwc on the water back to the house, then do the necessary post-ride maintenance on the craft (flush the salt water out of the engine). They accomplished all this without any difficulties and were obviously experienced, knowledgeable and comfortable in boating and pwc's as well as their main business which is the shipment up and down the east coast. Jim was extremely responsive and communicative with me at every step along the way planning and executing the job. One big plus was that although originally the agreement was for me to drive my jetski and trailer to his base in Northern Jersey so that he could take it to Florida; eventually he went way out of his way, modifying his own plans on a dime as necessary, to be able to instead pick the 'ski and trailer up at MY HOUSE on Long Island (the first time he offered this I couldn't do it, and he was able to rearrange his other plans in order to push back the job by another week just to save me having to drive to Jersey and back, easily saving me a tank's worth of gas in my SUV and half a day of extra driving on my part). Even then I only had a narrow window of time when I would be able for him to show up at my house, and he modified his driver's schedule on a dime to accomodate my schedule. In short I only hope this feedback doesn't just blend in with the dozens or hundreds of other testimonials they have; I am planning to use I95 again to bring the pwc back to NY in March.
