I was able to purchase a boat in NC and have it flatbed hauled to me in New England for less than it would have cost me to drive to NC and return (in gas, tolls, food, lodging), not counting the wear and tear on my truck and the boat & trailer (and me!). My Service Provider provided excellent service. My only problem with uShip was from one potential service provider who "Red Flagged" me for my mistakingly providing him my contact information as I was trying to figure out how to confirm his bid with him. I was a first-time uShip'er and didn't know I wasn't supposed to do that. He could have simply told me that what I did was wrong, and left it at that (and I had told him I was not familiar with uShip procedures) but instead he "Red Flagged" me and abandoned his proposal as if I was dirt and had committed a mortal sin and was now unworthy of his attention. That experience made me feel just awful. I am very pleased that I got another offer from another uShip provider that went very smoothly and redeemed what would have been a very bad first time experience with uShip.
