A week ago, I was a first-time shipper who needed to get a 13' Boston Whaler Sport from MA to SC for the fall season. It was frustrating, confusing, and time-consuming to contact various types of transporters on my own -- so many variables and vague pricing structures. When I discovered uShip, I was amazed at how user friendly the site is and how much activity was immediately generated by my posting. I had lots of options and clarity about transporters and costs. Reviews of transporters and their detailed profiles helped make a decision from among the many bids I received. Questions I posted were answered promptly by all interested transporters.Notification of bids and responses by phone was very helpful.Within a few days of streamlined communication, our boat was picked up and safely delivered on time and in perfect condition. We were amazed to discover that the price for transport was less than the cost of winterizing and storing the boat in New England. uShip's fee was reasonable, and the rebate was a good bonus.We're talking up the site with our friends who are all surprised that we successfully sent our boat 1000 miles for such a great price.
