Our sailboat has been in the family for more than 25 years. During that time, It has moved from one son to the next. It is not a small boat, and needs careful attention during transporting. When we moved it ourselves, from NY to NJ, we were full of doubts and nervous moments. But, we thought we were the only ones that would be extra careful. Several years ago it left Manasquan, NJ, and arrived in Portland, Maine on Christmas Eve, as a surprise for our youngest son. It was another nervous trip, in December on snowy Maine roads. When our youngest decided it was time to send the boat back home to be used by our grandchildren, no one was ready to make the trip to Chicago. When I checked on the price to have it shipped, it was beyond our means. I heard about USHIP, went on line and asked for a bid. Within an hour I received several bids. I carefully read feedback before I took the lowest bid. Feedback is key. I read about other shipments with similar care issues, and chose the shipper with the most experience, best feedback and good price. Oh, I wish we knew about USHIP 25 years ago. What peace of mind! We had confidence that the shipper we chose would handle our boat with the same care as a family member. And, we were right. CRLMOTORSPORTS, of INDIANA did a wonderful job. The Braun Family
