I needed a 16' Chapparal Fishing boat delivered from Lakeland, Florida to Waterford, NY. My uncle had sold me the boat and spent several months rebuiling the motor, putting, new seats, floor, and carpetting in the boat. I was very nervous about the shipping process and trying to get a reasonable price, insurance, and a shipper who could meet my schedule. After one shipper cancelling the order because he coudl not full it I relisted my boat and in a few days Silverfoxtrucking came in with a very competitive bid. I accepted the bid and was contacted immediately. I schedule the boat to be picked up in the afternoon and they showed up on time. During delivery the called to see what time late evening or early morning would work for the delivery. Due to traffic delays it was delivered in the AM. The boat arrived in great condition. The uship service allowed me to save my vacation time, wear and tear on my vehicle, and the hassle of traveling by proving an easy to use website and service. I would use Uship and Silverfox trucking in a heart beat.
