Before finding uShip with my Yahoo Search Engine I called 5 different shippers to have my boat hauled from Cape May, NJ to Ft. Myers, FL. I had 1 response and the price was really high and the person was not really friendly. Then I found uShip on the net and put the details into the que boxes. I was astounded to have 3 responses the same day, and these companies were asking sensible questions like the length and beam and height of the boat. I also explained that the trailer had a flat tire and my son & I were going to fly in and fix the trailer and check the lights, brakes & bearings. I got a response back through uShip from a gentleman named Robert who suggested that I let him do the repairs and he would charge me for the parts and his time. I accepted his bid which was very resonable but I also based it on his communication skills and references supplies to me by uShip. At this point uShip gave me his contact info and bowed out of the picture. I must say that the end result was the very best business transaction I have ever experienced. The gentleman did what he said he'd do in the time frame we suggested and made all the repairs including replacing the lights on the trailer and charged us very fairly. And he was in constant contact with us. Because of uShip and Robert I saved 2 round trip airline tickets and room and meals not to mention the hassle...and cold. I can't emphasize enough this experience that was only made possible by uShip. If I hear of anyone needing items moved or shipped I will tell them about uShip. Dan Smedile
