We bought a large pontoon boat in NC and were going to transport it ourselves but for a number of reasons, decided against it. I decided to "price" uship and got immediate responses. One of the better prices came from Mike and after driving him nuts (remember, I was a newbie at this) with questions, all of them answered with good humor, we contracted him to move the boat. I am in Northern Ontario, about 6 hours north of the U.S. border and had bought a woodstove (another story) in Ithaca, NY so decided to attempt the impossible, have the boat transaction occur (i.e. buy and pay for) pick up the wood stove (me doing that part) and meeting Mike at the border. The only thing we did not factor was Mother Nature, and she did not disappoint. Despite that, everything came off without a hitch and I am really satisfied. Mike is a great guy, fun to work with and reliable. Could not give him a stronger recommendation, and I am fussy. Uship worked well once the website was figured out, and it's a great service as well.
