We are first time boat buyers and could not find what we wanted locally. It was somewhat nervewracking to buy a boat online -sight unseen and contract to have it shipped across several states. We found a perfect shipper -Jon Mar Transport who made the process easy and painless for us and without uship and their feedback we might have had an altogether different story. The first several responders to our listing all looked reasonably good, but Jon Mar had excellent feedback specificaloly shipping boats. They offered insured transportation and answered questions promptly. I felt very secure and confident entrusting our shipment to them and accepted their bid. Then Gary called me and I was blown away. He offered to check our boat out for us because he knew I was nervous. He went that day and gave us a full report. He told me to have the dealer wash it and that the manuals were not in it. Details and concern like that you just don't expect to find over the internet. When it came time to pick it up from the dealer, he checked that it had all the keys and sent the salesmen scrabling to find them all. He made sure before he left that I had arranged to get the title delivered via next day service. We set up a time for Gary to deliver it and he kept me posted about his progress. The boat, motor and trailer arrived the next morning in perfect condition. Gary appologised that they were damp as he had driven through rain to get here. He took at least 45 minutes to tell the kids and me all about the boat. He took care to position the boat just how I wanted it on the driveway. I could say more, but I think anyone would get the point by now. I began the process feeling like I was taking a big risk to buy a boat online. Jon Mar Transport and Gary not only alleyed my concern about transport, but gave me immesurable confidence in the whole buying experience. I feel like Gary partnered with us to buy a boat and then looked out for us every step of the way. Thank you Gary
