We used U Ship for the first time when we purchased a new 2009 Chaparral Sunesta 284. It is somewhat a large boat and heavy. Obviously this can be a daunting task for someone not used to shipping; however U Ship does a good job of walking a person through the steps as they did with us. We found the site to be somewhat easy to use and it did save us money. We were having the boat transported from Florida to Colorado and the bids outside of U Ship were between 3200-4000 dollars. U Ship bids came in as low as 1690.00 dollars. We paid 2000.00 dollars because of timing issues but were not disappointed. We were able to select shippers based on feedback, which is important when shipping such expensive items. I will use them again when the occasion arises.
