I flew out on a saturday to look at and buy a boat some 2 states away. On my layover I posted my add on "Uship" and received numerous offers. Randy was friendly and I must admit I was nervous never having used a service like this, especially operating without any frame of reference. By the time my next flight was boarding, some 3 hours later, I had accepted Randys offer and provided him with the seller and my addresses. That very evening he called me and told me that he would be able to pick up the boat the very next day and take it directly to me. I was amazed. I thought that this seems way to easy. I flew home, showed my family a picture of the boat and come Tuesday afternoon Randy called me telling me that he was 1 hour away. In less than 3 days from having shaken hands with the seller for my boat it was delivered to my driveway. I had even considered making the drive myself to haul the boat back. that would have been a 2,200 mile trip requiring several nights in hotels. This saved me from having to spend 3 days on the road, it kept me from putting over 2,200 miles on my truck, no falling asleep at the wheel, none of that. And the fact that Randy was insured gave me the comfort I needed. I was so very glad I made the decision to accept Randys offer. He was great. He was friendly, he was on time, He was awesome. He even took the time to educate me on my new trailer showing me how it works. It was way too easy. I whole heartedly recommend Randy to anyone.
