I was looking for a boat for two years. The right boat finally came along, and I bought it. The only problem is its in Florida and I'm in New York. The first shipping service provider I found, quoted me a price of $2800.00. The second quote was for $3000.00. I told that service provider I would drive to Florida and pick it up myself. Was telling this to some of the guys on my dart team one of them told me about uship. I'm sure glad he did. I filled out the forms recieved 5 bids within two days of listing. In asked each bidder a few questions to help me decide. Each bidder answered my questions promptly. I chose Tropical Transport LLC. because they best suited my schedule. their bid was below my target budget. with the money left I was able to talk the seller into bring trailer to shop for new bearings, wheels, and lights. Tropical Transport was great! They picked up and delived my boat as promied. Actually better I had a small problem with timing on my end.Tropical Transport was very accomodating making my boat tranport smoooooth! So to recap. 1] Saved $1800.00 2]New wheels,bearings and lights on trailer and still under target budget 3]Boat delivered with no problems 4]put uship on my list of favorites on computer 5] Will most definetly use uship next time I need to ship somthing. Well thats my story and im sticking to it...... Thanks for reading
