My wife and I decided to buy a Nimble 24 sailboat. It's not a common boat and we concluded that we would buy one wherever it became available and have it moved to our home in Western Canada. We bought one in Florida. Next I checked with a could of local trucking companies but found their prices to be prohibitively high. I was going to make the 8000 km round trip myself when, after searching "boat movers" I stumbled upon uShip and, eventually, Alexander Yacht Movers. Phew. The $1300 I spent getting the boat half way home was totally worth it. It saved me at least four days on the road ad a lifetime of aggravation.
