We recently purchased a home in Florida. My wife wanted to move our Malibu to Florida but we didn't know how. I googled "ship boat" and up came Uship it. We got several bids but Alan's stated he was a retired auto mechanic. I thought this is the guy in case we had any problems with the trailor. Alan picked the boat up on time on Monday and drove it to Florida. We hooked up with him on Thursday, basically meeting at the launch. The boat had not been run for two years, so it would not start. He worked on the engine for sometime and diagonsed a faulty starter. He took us to a marina where we purchased a new starter. He is a retired mechanic and he installed it for us. In the process he tore his shorts. He drove the trailer back to our home only to find out our lift was not working. The breaker kept tripping so he worked on it for awhile and figured out that if you ran one side at a time, you could get it to work. We were able to finally land the boat. He spent the entire afternoon with us and was just a joy to work with. I can really say that I don't think in my 50 years, have I ever experienced such a level of customer service. Alan is a A+++++. Not sure if there is anyone like him.
