My wife and I bought a brand new boat from a dealer out-of-state that was offering at firesale prices to clear out inventory. In comparison to now much money we saved on the boat, the shipping cost was quite small. We paid $675 to have it hauled, other services were asking $900 - $1100. I could have done it cheaper with other U-Ship providers, but we selected one with a long list of positive feedback and all the licenses and insurance that other sites warned us we'd not be able to find on U-Ship. Well, they were wrong and we're happy with our service.
