Had been looking in Western Canada for a used boat since early Spring with little success, so I expanded my search to the US and found a great deal on a beautiful Glastron. The biggest problem then was how to get it shipped from California to Canada. I'd looked at Using UShip a few years ago, but never followed through (timing issues). This time I had a few weeks to play with, and as a result was able to get a match that fit both my budget and timing. I shipped the boat from LA to Spokane and drove down to get the boat from there. Since I was meeting the driver there, punctuality was important and George and Denes did not disappoint (1stClass4Less). George arrived right on time with my new purchase - (we arrived at the meeting point less than 5 minutes apart despite him driving from California and me from Calgary). Trip back through the border was simple (just some paperwork to fill out and GST to pay). Spent the rest of the week-end on the lake enjoying my new boat. I'm not sure how things could have gone smoother or easier. I'd recommend UShip to other Canadians who are having a tough time finding what they want in the local market.
