We shipped a Hallberg Rassy 38 from New Hampshire to Washington. At first we attempted to go with a shipping company our broker recommended in the Seattle area as they are usually trusted by most of the locals, however their communication was terrible and a week before the boat was supposed to be shipped, the company "erased us from their system" and didn't know when they could get a truck out there next. I put the bid out again in uShip and WeMoveBoats was able to get a truck out to the East Coast in 1.5 months, and even reduced the cost a little to help with the marina fees while the boat waited to be shipped. Couldn't have had better communication with WeMoveBoats. Very professional and the daily updates as the boat was moving across the country was a real treat that I got to share with all of my friends!
