I ended up buying a boat/trailer on a whim after having found a great deal on the internet. I was a little leery since I had no opportunity to see it in person or have it inspected. My biggest problem though was how to get it from Florida to California, as I have had some bad experiences with shipping cars in the past. A friend told me about uShip and I was lucky enough to have Bobby Long bid on my shipment. He helped me all the way through the process, fixed things on the trailer before and during his drive across country (the seller told me the brakes had been disconnected on the trailer when in fact there were none at all - not a good thing on a 26' boat weighing over 5000 pounds!), and could not have been any nicer. I have never met a retired gentleman with so much energy nor anyone who could handle the number of deliveries that Bobby does. This experience with Bobby and with uShip could not have been any better and both will remain high on my list of recommendations to others. Thanks again.
