"Learned a lot about UShip and shipping"
shipping from Fairgrove, Michigan Port Angeles, Washington for $1,821.82
I bought a 25' SeaRay boat in Michigan and needed it shipped 2500 miles out to me to be picked up at the border in Blaine. After accepting a bid way back in Nov. 2009, my original shipper fell through after I had been VERY flexible with getting my boat out here. He basically bailed on me after 2 months of delaying when he said he could get it done.
So I listed it back on UShip and didn't have much success on getting bids. So I went into the Boat Shippers category and started requesting bids from shippers I liked and it worked out that I got a very competitive bid from a shipper with an excellent feedback score.
My advice would be to not always take the lowest bid but to also consider the shippers track record and check the feedbacks.
Thank you Uship!
