We purchased a 22' Mastercraft boat in Arizona and needed it ship up to Michigan. Having never done this before we contacted a couple trucking companies for bids and then came across uship online. We entered our info and shipping need not expecting much response. Suprise suprise we had 1/2 dozen bids in a matter of days most less than the trucking companies bids. We chose Doug because of the great feedback he had, his price, and the time frame he could do it in. After booking the bid we hesitated, checked into uship a little more online to discover some bad press/experiences people had with transporters and were going to cancel our shipment. However, after talking to Doug he put our fears to rest and we went thru with the order. There may be some bad transporters using uship but Doug is not one of them. He kept in constant contact during the shipment. Informed us of issues with the boat that we may have not been aware of. (fortunately we were). Sent us pictures before and during the shipment. And arrived ahead of schedule. We would use him again in an instane. My personal opinion on uship is that they charge the transporters an excessive amount and don't allow anyway for the shipper to check references on the transporters until after the shipment is booked and uships fees paid. Sure you can read the transporters feedback but couldn't that be manipulated somehow? Having said that, without uship we would not have met Doug, and he did an awesome job for us. Book your shipment with Doug and have him give you our contact info if you want extra piece of mind. Thanks again Doug.
