I posted my boat on Uship about a week before i ended up buying it. Then I found a transport company recommended by a marina that I thought was going to haul my boat. The price the other company quoted seemed reasonable and fair. When it came down to the day I purchased the other boat the outside shipping company never contacted me back. I realized after being slapped with a $20 a day fee where my boat was sitting waiting to be shipped that I was in trouble. Luckily I opened up my Uship account and found two transportation companies waiting to haul my boat. Within 12 hours I had a new shipping company from Uship lined up and for $350 LESS!!! I am sure I will stick with Uship to haul anything I need in the future.
