I bought a boat on EBAY and did not feel like making a trip to Florida from New Hampshire to go get it. I figured a trucker could do the job for less money. I signed up with U Ship and got several bids. I was looking for someone on their way home to share the cost and keep the price low. I had to wait for the boat to get its warranty parts and it came down to 2 shippers. I chose the one I chose because he had a big truck and a trailer plate which saved me a week's time so I did not have to deal with the US mail system. I got a fair price and the shipment was successful. The only thing that I did not count on was at the time you accept a bid, you get charged a fee on a credit card and the shipper gets the balance. I never knew what the shipper and USHIP were actually getting until the bid was accepted. Overall, a good experience and I would do it again. Considering I would have had to go down empty and come back with my boat in tow, I saved quite a bit of money. dieseltrx4 did a great job and I would use him again.
