I started out looking to purchase a boat in February. I live in Southern California and had looked all over Southern, Northern, and even the Southwest looking for a boat at the right price. I finally found one that fit all my needs. The bad news was that it was located in Nebraska. After flying to Nebraska to see this boat in person, I knew it was the one I wanted. I started looking at boat transporting on Google and found Uship. I posted my shipment and waited for bids to come in. There were plenty of low bids but Autokraft was the lowest with putting my boat and trailer onto their 50ft trailer. It took me awhile to finalize the purchase, but Wayne (Autokraft) checked back to see if I was ready. We finally figured everything out and got a date set for pickup. I was very anxious to get the boat to California and in my hands. The weather in the midwest had already been pretty bad with many Tornados, rains, and rivers were flooding. I was getting nervous that something would happen before Wayne could pickup the boat. The day he was scheduled to make the pickup, the power had been knocked out from high winds. I was worried. Wayne kept in good contact with me the entire trip and that eased my tension. Wayne made it back to California and the boat was fine. Thanks Wayne for all your help and a great experience with Uship and Autokraft.
