I moved my family from Washington to Florida. But my boat, a 1993 Aquasport 230 Explorer, was still sitting on a trailer on San Juan Island in Puget Sound, WA. And the trailer was shot, not worthy for long-distance travel. How could I move that boat from the most northwestern part of the U.S. to Key West, FL, the most southeastern point? Uship turned out to be the solution. It helped me find DonMonz13, a shipper with their own 3-axle adjustable aluminum trailer. They took the ferry from Anacortes to San Juan Island, loaded the boat and secured it and all equipment on board, took the ferry back to the mainland, and voila, 3300 miles and 4 days later, delivered my boat in perfect condition. An excellent business experience for me, and now I'm ready for fishing!
