After more than six years of patiently biding my time I finally got to repair the blown engine in my beloved 27' Rinker Captiva. I have been missing boating for years and I am stoked about getting back on the water. We had moved from Seattle to Cleveland in 2008 and I wasn't interested in hauling a dead boat across country in the early spring. I had the new engine installed while visiting family in Washington this summer and was now motivated to get this monster to Ohio. I did the math and knew I would spend around $1100 to $1200 just in expenses alone to haul it myself so I looked to uShip as a tool to get competitive bids. They started high, as always, but eventually capitalism kicked in and they quickly came down to cost effective rates. I accepted a $1300 bid and received my boat three days before the day we agreed upon! Ron did a great job, delivered early, and saved me a serious headache. When you consider the time, stress, and wear and tear on your vehicle...this was money well spent! I trusted uShip because of the rating system available for each bidder and I appreciated how the system uses the bidding process to negotiate the rate you desire. The transaction went smoothly and I will definitely use this tool for future shipments!
