We were new to shipping with UShip and were a little more than skeptical but the boat we purchased did not have a trailer and it was more than 500 miles away. We tried to borrow or buy a used trailer but had no luck so a search on the internet brought up UShip. My husband really wanted to just have someone at the local marine go get the boat for us but when he saw the equipment used by the shippers on Uship (we used smithsboatsalvage) he decided our boat would be safer from damage and without any additional cost. We connected with a shipper that was already coming to our area for another shipment so it actually cost less. Our shipper communicated with us regularly and was very supportive. He even put a light in the engine well to ease our minds about the possiblity of freezing with night temps in the low 20's. We highly recommend Uship and their shippers. Our shipper only had 14 points, not sure what that really means but I saw a few others with quite a bit more but ours was GREAT!!
