We purchased a boat from a government auction. We could not take ownership until we passed a background check. Once they notified us that we passed we had ten days to move the boat or we would forfeit it and we had to give them two days notice for pick-up and they only provided a two-hour window for pick-up once it was scheduled!! On top of all of that - We live 769 miles away from the pick-up location! What a nightmare - thank goodness my friend told me about Uship - what a great company. I had to move fast and I was so worried and then I accepted the bid from Butch Smith of B&H Enterprises and everything was wonderful! He had promptly responded to all of my crazy-paranoid-woman emails and could meet the timeframe. I was so relieved. Then I spoke to him on the phone and I thought "Wow - can this guy really be as good as he sounds??" YES! A resounding YES! Butch was fantastic...professional, prompt, kind, he kept us updated during his drive through the night of high winds and rain...I even went to the local fudge shop this morning and got him a block of fudge as a surprise and I hadn't even met him and he hadn't even delivered the boat yet but that is how confident I was in Butch. Gees, once he arrived with the boat and everything was perfect I thought I should have gotten him some caramel corn and chocolates too! I just can't say enough great things about Butch and Uship.
