I had lined up a shipper through USHIP to pick up my boat (purchased from Ebay) from CA and deliver it to IL. The first shipper gave me a date 4 weeks after the sale. He eventually cancelled his bid and I had to find another in a hurry. I posted my request for new bids that evening, paid a little more for priority advertising and that's when Greg Marlow stepped in to help. I would have done this myself if Greg hadn't replied so quickly. He matched my bid perfectly and I ended up saving a few bucks (and he was able to deliver to me within the last part of the month when the other shipper SHOULD'VE delivered). AMAZING! The trailer was supposedly roadworthy but a bearing gave out. His MacGuyver instinct kicked in and got it trailerable again. He even looked out for all of my stuff (kept all broken parts, wheel etc). I would absolutely use this guy again. He goes all over the country so be sure to look for him on USHIP! A++++ Service!!! I cannot recommend USHIP enough to my friends and coworkers. Thank you Greg and USHIP!
