I found the sailboat that I like by internet, it was near Chicago and I was in Miami, so I Came to Uship site and I open an acount an ask for bids for the transport between those citys.And I recibe a lot of them, I have say than I will be contracting the first tan accept my price for the job. So I do with him traying to know the experiences of the persons who used his service before. He has a record of 16 jobs and only 1 wasn't satisfait with his service. I talk with him and acordding the details of our transport. I want to pay all cash when he delivered the boat in Miami, and I acept my terms and that give me more security. I have only a daubt, Did he obtain the permits for cross 5 states with a boat that has a wide of 10' 2" and need an special permit for do that? The permision plate he use was the old than exist in the trailer and it was out of date. ( Vencida en español) I didn't ask him.
