I would use Uship again, however forstewart was the star of this show! Words cannot express how great Tom is!!!! In my initial conversation with Tom, he told me, “ anyone can drive a truck with a boat behind; service is what makes the difference. “ I didn’t know how important that statement would be until the story started to unfold. Tom picked up our boat and trailer early the week of Christmas. The marina was closed for the year, but we had a guy meet him there to open it up to get the boat out. Despite being told the trailer was ready for a 2000 mile trip, one tire was low and the trailer lights did not work. The guy at the marina gave Tom limited time to get the boat hooked up and directed him to a nearby truck stop to get air in the tire. We found a trailer repair facility about 5 miles from the marina where we could have the lights fixed. On the way to the repair facility, one of the wheels started smoking. After a 3 day delay for repairs of the boat trailer, THE WEEK OF CHRISTMAS, Tom was able to get on the road. He followed a major weather system all the way across the country. Tom’s dedication to the delivery resulted in him missing Christmas with his family because of trailer repair delays and the extreme weather. What more service could you possibly ask for? Tom stayed with our boat when most would have left it behind. He treated our boat like it was his very own. I paid Tom slightly more than my lowest bid because of his feedback and experience, which proved to be the BEST MONEY I HAVE EVER SPENT!!!!! Thanks Tom!!!!!
