Needed to get my heavy boat hauled nearly 700 miles away (from South Carolina to New Jersey.) Called a couple shipping companies and the prices were unreal. Decided to try this Uship with a bit of worry and skepticism. Got several bids, the first one being a little high, then several more at acceptable prices. After careful reading of feedback from others, I decided on a Uship regular who turned out to be from my home state. Communication was there the whole time and the delivery driver showed up in a beautiful new truck. He carefully inspected the rig, tried out the lights, and hooked up. I got all his paperwork from him, made copies, and away he went. Again, I was worried but decided that I would not bother the driver on his cell and tried to forget about it. Got an update later in the day and the driver indicated where he was exactly. He went out of his way to take a safe route avoiding a known problem area. Feeling a little better I again waited. After another update the delivery took place and the driver thanked me for the business. After thinking it over, I would have been as worried with the delivery from the companies that I called. They could not have done a better job. I am now a bit more relieved about getting items shipped. Best of all, I saved over 2050 dollars and that will fill the 129 gallon gas tank on the boat a few times over! Will be using Uship again, hopefully to bring the boat back south for retirement in the future.
