I actually stumbled onto the uShip site when looking to find possible carriers for a boat and trailer from L.A., CA to Niagara Fall, NY (I'm Canadian). Before finding uShip, my initial investigation lead me to believe that the boat purchase would be cost-prohibitive because of the shipping distance. Not so, after finding uShip! Great site too - easy to use. I encourage others to try what you have not tried before. Do your research, and try to communicate with prospective carriers bidding on your shipment. Ask questions. Flexibility (if you can afford it) will help to save you $$ in the end. Real-time Device Tracking by Location Labs™ was great (although some minor "error" glitches could be improved upon), and more carriers should offer this. My carrier did, and it allowed me to see an issue arise immediately. With uShip I was able to purchase a slightly used boat 2600 miles away at half the new price in Canada.
I plan to enjoy this boat for the rest of my life. I would definitely use uShip again.
