I purchased a boat in Annapolis MD without a trailer. I assumed that it would be no problem to ship across country to me in Washington state using a boat hauler. Because the boat is only 22 feet long this proved to be very difficult to do on a regular semi truck trailer. The challenge was cost and time because the load needed to be shared with another boat to be even remotely feasible economically. UShip came to the rescue by putting me in touch with a professional driver who helped buy a trailer for me and then loaded the boat and hauled it across country. This was cost effective and efficient. My boat arrived here, in perfect condition, in four days instead of the four weeks other shippers had quoted.
