It all started when it hit -40. We started to plan for summer and the first order of business was buying a boat. We shopped around and found the right boat for the right price but it was 1600 miles away. We tried to price out the pick up but it just wasn't feasible. A friend had used Uship before and, "it was the greatest thing ever!". So we set a budget and posted the ad. The bids came in right on budget. After reading the detailed information on the various shippers we selected one with a good record (not the lowest priced mind you!). We made arrangements paid the deposit and thats when the fun started. Lets see: the wiring on the boat was non-functional, the axle was bent and the tires were in terrible condition! When I was told this over the phone I was thinking that I would have to go and repair the trailer and bring it back myself. NOT needed, the shipper bent over backwards to help me out! It was to much to ask but I didn't have to. A week before scheduled I had my boat! Through white out blizzards, blown tires, our shipper came through! Now we are looking forward to a summer of good times...all thanks to Uship and the good people who transported our boat!
