I purchased a boat in South Carolina, I live in Washington St. I had a shipper lined up until a week before it shipped. They had to cancel. They suggested I try Uship. Almost immeadiatly there were shippers asking questions and bidding on the job. I ended up picking Shipnewengland. They were flexable and able to make my short pick up window. I was very nervious about letting a stranger pick up my boat and deliver it for $2000. My dealer was more than happy to ship it for 3 times what I paid using Uship. By the time the boat was picked up I felt very comfortable with Karen. They are very professional and at the same time just nice caring people. This boat purchase was very stressful. The shipping was not. If Jim and Karen ever find some spare time in the northwest they are welcome at our home. Thanks again and Uship and shipnewengland are great. Jim
