I purchased a 28 foot Mako which had to be hauled through multiple states and two major metropolitan cities. The bid I accepted on uShip was hundreds of dollars lower than what I was quoted by service providers in the yellow pages. The uShip provider I worked with showed up to the boat yard with a hydraulic lift trailer just in case the yard wasn't able to lift the boat. Good thing, because the yard didn't have a lift available despite the fact they told me they would. Mike from uShip just backed in with his hydralauic trailer lifted up my new boat and was on his way. He helped me find a water launch site that would accomodate my new 28' Mako and made sure the delivery time coincided with high-tide. His guys even helped launch and secure the boat. You know you've found excellent service when someone bears the extra expense of towing a hydraulic trailer just in case! My hat's off to Mike and uShip.
