The several bids were great to have. It really helped me make a decision on whether or not we could afford to buy THE boat we wanted. We saved over $1000 from previous independent shippers who were not using uShip.
Being able to communicate with the various shippers and ask questions, weeding out good from bad, giving an overall feeling of confidence. I have been bragging about uShip to my freinds contemplating purchasing an out-of-state boat themselves. Do it! Get the bids, ask the questions, get a good price and a competent shipper.
Our shipper was outstanding and professional. Our boat was delivered with dead batteries by the dealer. Our shipper stayed with us for 5 extra hours to help remedy the situation! He even insisted upon driving to the marine slip from the wet launch area to ensure a safe, secure hassle-free first night dock in our slip. That was very reassuring for first time boat owners like us!
The overall experience was positive and I would use uShip again and certainly am recommending it to others.
In fact, as I type this letter, my brother-in-law and another colleague are researching boats utilizing uShip in their formula for purchasing/pricing! I tell them, "Go for it"!
Wouldn't have bought this particular boat without uShip!
