My mom bought a rowing boat on Ebay for a birthday present for my father. The only issue; it was almost 500 miles from home. I tried contacting several shippers, but due to the unusual size I was unable to get an accurate quote. At this point it looked like I would be taking a road trip. Enter Uship. A first time user, I really didn't expect much when I listed the boat. Boy, was I wrong. I had several offers within hours and had a shipper lined up that day. Another unexpected surprise, the shipper handled all the arrangements including contacting the seller for pick up, finding the best way to haul the boat and delivering the boat in flawless condition exactly when he said he would. As easy as Uship is to use and with the amount of money I saved, I'm a dedicate Uship user from here on out.
