Shipping a boat with no trailer is a challenge. Finding a shipper in another state is impossible until I happened on uShip. Working with marinas on both end for the loading and unloading helped but finding a shipper who would work with me would have been impossible without the uShip connection. I found sending out bid requests rather than waiting for a bid was more productive. Being flexible on the date helps so the shipper can arrange return loads. Over all the whole experience was great.
