I purchased the boat of my dreams in Grand Haven Michigan. I posted it on U-ship and accepted a bid from Shannon at XCOUNTRYEXPRESS. She is amazing. I was having major anxiety attacks from the minute she advised me that she had hooked up and was hittting the road. She kept me posted and up to date. Emails every nite and periodic phone calls. Well I get a call from Dillon Montana. Dave we have a problem. Everything is OK the boat is fine. But one wheel flew off down the hiway. OMG!!!!!! Being a tandem axle trailer she hoisted up the lame axle and blocked the good one to take the extra weight. Then travelled down side roads to the nearest town and sourced all the parts and a new tire. She had the rig back on the road the next day. Wow!!! She even sent me pics of all the repairs as they progressed. We met up in Port Angeles where she had arrived at 3:30 AM. But alas she had been to the carwash at this ungodly hour and washed my whole boat and trailer down. I hope she didnt get her halo wet. What an angel. I have never allowed anyone to handle things for me before and felt somewhat powerless through the whole process (ya your thinking it ...so am I .....CONTROL FREAK..haha) I could not have been in better hands and all my anxiety and worries were for nothing. I was in the hands of an amazing human being. Nice to know they are still out there and doing a great job. Dave Victoria, B.C. Canada pr
