I had a wonderful experience shipping my 18 foot Boston Whaler with Doug Goss. I had been working various leads around the country trying to find a good fishing/family boat to share some quality time with my 18 year old son before he heads off to college. The boat I wanted was in high demand and there were only a few scattered around the country. Normal shipping prices made it unlikely that I could complete the deal, but I stumbled onto the Uship website and things starting looking up! My ultimate price for transportation was less than half the cost I was initially quoted by the standard carriers. But it wasn't all that easy. My first experience was with a person who NEVER contacted me after the match was completed. Turns out he had been pulled over and arrested for "outstanding warrants" on his last haul so he was unavailable to respond to our successful match. It took 5 days to resolve the problem, but my next match with Doug Goss was just the medicine to make it all better. Doug had a much higher rating and the comments were universally favorable. There were no excuses, just lots of confirmations of good experiences. I felt much better with this match from the beginning, but was still pleasantly surprised by the level of communication and professionalism demonstrated by this service provider. If the rating system is utilized results can be more predictable. Everyone can have a bad day, but the beauty of accumulating a bunch of positive reviews through the Uship community helped assure me that my second experience would have a happier ending. And we all enjoy a happy ending! Thanks, Doug Goss and thanks, Uship! Gary Brock Houston Texas
