I couldn’t get my boat to a race in Long Beach soon enough to make registration due to being involved in some work that was out of state and falling seriously behind schedule. I thought I was going to have to cancel my plans to make the event which would have meant giving up some very important and much needed points to remain competitive in my class when someone mentioned USHIP. After thinking long and hard about it because the criticalness of the time line and how much I would have to trust a stranger to transport by boat I decided to take a risk and see how this process would work. Right off the bat I got a bid from Troy and Kevin that was alot less then my opening bid. I gambled and picked them very quickly due to the time I had to decide whether to cancel my trip or decide to ship it was running out fast and I didnt want to decide even faster on whether I trusted this shipper or not. What can I say it payed off, These guys called me right away after I accepted their bid, showed up to due an in person meeting and look over exactly what they would be transporting for me, then reassured me through the confidence that they had that my boat would be taken care of as if it were in my own possession. These guys did not exagerate a bit they even went the extra mile to find out the class I was running in and the location I would be in the pits and placed my boat perfectly in this area...WAY BEYOND ANYTHING I EXPECTED! If anyone who reads this is using it to decide whether or not to pick these guys to transport for them, let me tell you "choose them". There is no way you can go wrong with these guys, if they say they will do it..its as good as done. Troy and Kevin you guys are a dying breed and should be very proud of that fact. I just wish you guys had stayed a little longer so I could have personaly thanked you for the service and attention you gave me and my boat. I will definetly be useing you guys to transport for me (even if I dont need it) for our next race.
