After buying a 1968 ski boat in CA sight unseen I posted an ad for bids to ship it to NY. I got lots of good bids and chose a shipper based on feedback left by others with schedule and price next in priority. I was not disappointed, the feedback was 100% accurate and I always felt at ease with my decision, even when some problems arose with the 40 year old trailer's wheel bearings. Tradewinds Transportation did an excellent job and I would never have found them without Uship and the feedback left by others. Tony actually had to withdraw his first bid due to scheduling so I sent him a bid request after reading his feedback and he got the job based on that and his quick response to my request. (His price was one of the best I received as well and the timing worked out great.) I'm pleasantly surprised with how easy the whole "online" deal came together, from buying the boat to having it shipped - I found a boat I had been looking for for over 10 years and had it delivered to my door, and the whole process was easy and painless. I almost feel bad not using some of the other shippers since their feedback and communication was top notch as well; but I know I made a great choice and have options if Tony is ever not available when I need something else shipped!
