We were debating whether to drive 1100 miles from Houston to Florida to pick up our brand new boat, that was being replaced by our insurance company due to the loss inflicted by Hurricane IKE. We googled "boat transport" and UShip was one of the websites that came up. I found the site very easy to use and once I listed my shipment, the bids started to trickle in. We got competitive bids and to the last minute, the bid and the schedule we wanted to contract. We did review the feedback on UShip for the bidders we were interested in and it helped us make our decision easier. Although we were skeptical, it was not until we "accepted" the bid that we got to speak with the bidder and were very impressed with him and felt very comfortable contracting him for the job. In the end, it was a win-win for both of us in this shipment (price, timing, schedule, and communication). We were fortunate to find someone to bring our boat who had done this before and saved us a weekend of tiring travel. It was a great experience! We are enjoying our new boat now and are very greatful!
