I'm a first time shipper and needed to ship a boat from Wisconsin to South Carolina, in early January no less. I picked a shipper, chuck524, based on his feedback and flexibility around shipping dates. I was wishy-washy about when exactly I wanted the boat shipped but chuck524 was patient and worked with me. Chuck524 communicated with me often as I wanted to make sure that we had all the details worked out around the pick-up. Chuck524 was proactive in helping me make sure that all the details were covered. Unfortunately, when it came time to ship, it was snowing from Chicago to South Carolina. I could tell when chuck524 arrived with the boat that he was very particular and paid attention to detail. You could tell by the way the cover was secured to the boat that he knew what he was doing and was very concerned about making sure that the boat arrived in great condition. Chuck524 communicated his status along the way and gave me a heads up before his arrival. This is a seasoned shipper that I would use again. Uship.com is a great tool that facilitated the connection between me and chuck524. Without uship.com, I would have had no easy way to find a shipper and negotiate a fair price. A great interface that I will use again. Thank you!
