I had a very rare rowboat that I'd bought 50 years ago. When I moved off a lake, I left it behind, then discovered a new lake on the other side of the continent. The people who had purchased our house had never used it and willingly let me have it back. The only problem was how to get this unique boat to the West Coast. uShip was recommended by a local marina who agreed to do the first real maintenance the boat had ever had. When it came time for shipping, they sent me to uShip. My first bid was too high for my pocket, so I set a price I'd pay and got a shipper who accepted that. The whole transition worked smoothly on all sides. uShip was easy to deal with and the shipper, Ohioship, did exactly what he promised. AND it was for a price I was comfortable with. On arrival and meeting the shipper, he made it clear that his business is possible because of uShip which enables him to find loads he can handle and book things so he can carry goods both ways. My boat is here on Lake Donner. It will have an appreciative audience who have never seen a boat like it. It is a performance rowboat which is safe to let kids go out on their own in. Yes, I bought my boat for $ 250, but there is nothing equivalent on the market today for less than $ 5000 and even that isn't a good match.
