I decided to ship my 6 month old 2007 Yamaha AR 230 H.O. jet drive boat (Shark Racer) from our home in Miami Beach to Sag Harbor, New York. I went online and Googled "how to ship my boat" and in one of the first few links I found uShip. After shortly looking around the site, it was clear that besides the obvious reverse concept of eBay, I became quite jealous of whomever thought up the idea for this Company! I was quickly able to enter my information; name, shipment details, locations, etc. and almost immediately I began to see prospective shippers begin to bid on the transport of my boat. It was easy to initially identify pricing discrepancies and evaluate feedback (it allowed me to quickly eliminate one shipper). The communication through uShip was flawless and timely. It allowed me to really understand how the transport would work with a number of shippers and focused me on choosing PD Shipping as my transporter. The payment through uShip (fee) was easy and quickly allowed me to finalize the transaction. All in all, my experience with uShip was amazing. For ANY shipping/transportation needs I have in the future I will definitely use both uShip and PD SHipping again. If there was a way to give ratings (scores) to the shippers it would be a great feature to then be able to sort them based upon user scores. Paul from PD SHipping would definitely get the highest score though!! Thank you again for an amazing service and the successful, safe transport of my boat! Best regards, Randall Kane
