I purchased a 1949 Chris Craft classic boat near Chicago and needed to get it to Phoenix. I found out about u-ship and visited the site. Since I could go get it myself, I was interested in finding someone coming this way with a light load that would give me a good deal. The early bids were high but after someone asked me to place my "ideal price" on the site, I did and quickly had two shippers willing to haul my load. The only glitch was after answering "questions" about my shippment on line, the site appears to have blocked information to the shipper. I now understand the site it trying to avoid you making direct contact with the shipper not through the site so you have to word responses with no numbers, names or contact info. I would definately use the site and the shipper again, thanks much
