I found the boat of my dreams in San Diego ( half price ! ) Now I needed to get it to Seattle. I had originally gotten bids from two other shipper`s ( not uShip ).On the web site that advertised the tug that I purchased I saw the the box to check to ship your purchase---WELL!! Now I am not to savey around computers but figured what do I have to loose.Click up pops uShip so I type 26 ft tug San Diego to Seattle. Soon Rob,of Robs Transport tells me he can move my boat & SAVE me $1,700 !!!!At first I was a little skeptical but after Talking to Rob I felt assured he could do the move & get the tug delivered safley. We both needed to be a little flexable in our shedules (Rob was trying to pick up a boat to deliver on his trip south & had to work around that owners schedule & the boat yards that do not haulout on weekends all the time I was trying to confirm a arrival date so I could get a lift time, marinas get Real busy in April as everyone gets their boat ready for summer) But we did work through all these set backs & the tug is now back to the Pacific Northwest were it was built Tere are only 172 of these 26 Nordic Tugs in the World , that is why it was such a precious cargo. UShip & there shipper did a great job& I would use them again& highly recommend them, even if you are skeptical give them a chance to bid on your move& if you use Rob you I know it will be a good move.
