I had been searching all over the US for a 1997 Sun Tracker 32 Party Cruiser. I found one in Redding CA. OK, I'm in GA now what do I do. A friend of mine told me about U-Ship. He's in the shipping business so I knew it must be good. First time customer. I posted my Boat and waited for bids to come in. They started immediately. Along the way "OneUglyNerd" replied with an excellent bid. The name caught my eye. We communicated back and forth without breaking any of the rules, which are excellent by the way. I accepted his bid. Turned out he was taking delivery of a new Truck in Sacramento a Ford 550 that could easily pull my boat 2,700 miles. Whit flew out to Sacramento, picked up his truck and headed for Redding. He hooked up and started across the US. He decided to stop 90 miles into the trip to check the tires. They were running extremely HOT which concerned him. He called me and advised me to replace all 6 which I did. He also found out the electrical wiring on the trailer was not working. He made another stop at a trailer service company and got the trailer rewired. Whit drove all the way to Los Angeles before starting across the US because of his concerns for winter weather this time of year (February) Turned out to be the right choice because of winter weather along Hwy 40. In the future I will use U-Ship when I need to transport goods. Hopefully Whit will be in there bidding for my business. I'm 100% satisfied with my experience with U-Ship and OneUglyNerd, Whit Finks.
