I had hoped to move my boat, (purchased in May)sometime in June or July. Mechancial problems, scheduling problems, and a summer full of foul waether seemed to push my move out, and I was forced to keep moving my requiested move date. During the months I waited for everything to come togther, I was traveling monthly to and from China, so there was little I could do to speed the process. uShip continued to provide quotes from an array of viable haulers, but I could not execute until my boat was finally hauled. However when I had the boat ready to ship, I revised and updated my listing, and received many excellent quotes. Amongst them my choice was clear, as the hauler I selected was absolutely excellent in providing clear communications, (via uShip messaging) while I was in China. We actually concluded our business by and large via messaging with the only calls to finailize payment.
In the beginning I tried contacting haulers directly, with very poor results. Then I found uShip, in retrospect, I can not imagine locating as professional a hauler as I found through uShip (actually that uShip found for me).
In future, if I am shipping again, I will certainly use uShip, and I have already recommended it to associates contemplating moving their boats.
