I have been trying to coonvince my wife to allow me to bring my 20' Mako CC up to our home in Connecticut for the past two years. She finally relented and I scheduled a shipment for this July. I chose JNJ Trucking in MS as my carrier as their bid was competitive and they had a good rating but they did have one unsatisfied customer b/c of a cancellation. I liked that b/c I feel like I could be getting duped by a service provider that simply hs all their family members log on and wrire positive reviews for them. John Rayford of JNJ Trucking was fantastic. He arrived a few hours late due to violent Florda storms. The whole time I was waiting I was nervous that I had made a mistake, however, once John arrived I knew I was in good hands. John stripped all of my poorly latched straps from the boat and showed me the proper way of working the ratchet straps I purchased. The trip took him a little less than two days to drive from Boynton Beach, FL to West Hartford, CT (1350 miles). He even had to drive the NJ Turnpike and NYC in weekday rush hour traffic. When he pulled in front of my house with the boat I had such a feeling of satisfaction and content that I had chosen the right man and company for the job. I like to know that there are people that believe greatly in their word being their bond and John Rayford is one of those people. Once our boat was put into his hands, he protected it and cared for it as if it were his own. I am very pleased with my service provider and with the UShip website for putting us together. I doubt I would have run into his company had it not been for the UShip website. DJ DiGiacomo
