I found the boat I always wanted and couldn't afford new. But, I am on an Island in Lake Michigan and the boat was on the East Coast. I calculated the time and expense it would take me to get the boat myself, thought about taking it in water (but a bit too long a trip for a 26' boat with the water still so cold this time of year) and then found uship. A few bids came in at about half the price I found myself directly elsewhere. I was a bit apprehensive about booking a shipment so far online, but I chose vonWagner based on his experience with boats, and could not be happier. Communication was excellent and made it easy for me to schedule the pickup at the ideal time for the seller. And he delivered right on time (which was a bit complicated since I'm on an Island and the boat was to be shipped on a ferry so had the extra delivery step vs. to a home when he could have delivered any time) He let me know when he arrived on site, keep me updated on his progress, and arrived perfectly on schedule. A real pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend shipping whatever item you value with vonWagner and will definitely use uShip any time I ship anything in the future!
