I wanted to ship a used sailboat 1400 miles but only after I inspected it and made a decision to purchase. uShip gave me an option to ship the boat over a long distance which I would not be able to do on my own. They also saved me money over what it would have cost me to do it my self. By my calculation I saved about $600. The shipping company worked with me with the understanding that the probable purchase might be cancelled if the boat was not acceptable as advertised. I did buy the boat and the shipper delivered as promised even though one of the tires blew out on the boat trailer which caused some worrisome moments for me. They contacted me as needed and kept me informed of the status of the tire situation. They were great and yes I would use uShip again. Great service but be sure to read the feedback and profiles when making your decision of who to accept. The information posted about each shipper helped me make the decision to use uShip. Thanks
