Great experience shipping my boat

This was the first time I used uship.We had moved across the country and had to leave our boat behind. We had tried numerous boat transport companies but could never get it picked up and delivered. I couldn't believe how smoothly and quickly, from listing to receiving my boat, everything fell into place. The service provider did an outstanding job and kept me informed of his whereabouts during the ...

Shipping my boat

care and respect for customer and quality of service was very high, much better than some others I have dealt with, delivered on time with no problems at all, a very excellent service, Price was fair and they were very easy to communicate with if I had any questions etc. I would definitely use this firm again

Because of DPR Trucking, I was able to do some surf behind my new boat this weekend!!!

Well, first, I had to go to winnipeg to get my shipment ready, a 22' Wakeboard boat. When I got there I had to go for a test drive of the boat and when I got back, Paul, from DRP Truking was already there. No need to call him in here. We prepared the boat, all together, Paul helped without hesitation. But It was getting late and I had to go take the plane back to Montreal. So I let everything on ...

WizeGuyz Rulz!

I used the WizeGuyz to ship a 17' boat from South Lyon, Michigan to Sweetgrass, Montana. I was very happy with the service, price and communication that Todd and Angie provided. As much as I would like to hord the WizeGuyz service all to myself I think that I owe it to Todd and Angie to spread the word about how fantastic the product they provided was. I say product because what they provided was ...

Excellent provider delivering my sailboat

He was able to deliver the boat when promised and went the extra mile to get things done for me. He was always reachable by phone and gave updates on his delivery schedule for me so I knew where he was in the delivery process of my boat.

Shipping of my boat

Good a good price, great communication with Tom, and yes, would use this service again.


**** EXCELLENT SERVICE*** 10+++ Star rating for sure. It was more than I expected. There was great communication through out the entire process.

We were nervous who to choose to haul our boat and talking to this service provider via the internet on we took the leap and commit ...

Boat from Ontario to British Columbia

I purchased a boat in Kingston,Ontario Canada. I live in Vernon,British Columbia Canada. I initially received quotes from Canadian boat haulers. They were exceptionally high. A friend suggested I try uShip website. Mark Rinker (Mark Rinker Enterprises)accepted my bid (which was lower than any Canadian bid) being an American hauler, he spent days researching methods on how to transport my boat bet ...

Great boat shipping experience

After searching high and low for our dream boat, my wife and I found one in Missouri, which is 2500 miles from our home in Labrador, Canada. While looking for a transport company, we found UShip and gave it a try. Wouldn't you know it, we hooked up with a fantastic shipper who far exceeded our expectations. They stayed in daily contact by e-mail and telephone, taking pictures of the pick-up and dr ...

Catalina 30 Sailboat

A statutory Holiday made scheduling the transport difficult. Mark of Christine Transport made the conflicts disappear to the satisfaction of everyone. He prepositioned at the marina the night before my sailboat pickup and was ready to go at first light to meet the priorities of the pickup marina. He arrived at destination a day early and my sail boat was in great shape. There was never any pre ...

An easy move.

I had a 28 foot boat to move from Toronto to Kenora Ontario - but could not do it myself. I also could not be there at either end - so I had to find someone I could trust. I looked at MRE Marine's positive feedback history and was convinced that they could do it. He picked the boat up on schedule and delivered when promised. I was a bit worried about the process - however he kept me informed by p ...

First time shipping and everything went off without a hitch.

Wade was great to work with. I had a boat I needed brought up from California and within days of posting the shipment on Uship, I had a bid and had arranged for the deal to take place. I will definitely use Uship again and will make use of Wade's services if it works out.

Great Job

I recently had my 1930 Chris Craft runabout shipped from Alberta to Michigan. My shipper was Dealers Choice Transport ( Ian Anderson). He arrived and picked up the shipment, and dispite adverse weather conditions he delivered my boat on time and without damage. I would definitely use this service again.

Geat Experiance

I recently purchased a boat on Iowa. I found U-ship by mistake and decided to give it a try. I was surprized at the response i had from carriers. My shipment was picked up, and delivered on time for the price quoted. Great Job!!

Boat arrived in expected condition

I had my boat shipped by Kodiak Transport. The only reason that I bought this boat was because they said they could ship it if I bought it. I had the boat shipped from Dublin, Ohio to Creston, British Columbia. It took longer than expected to have the boat picked up, I was getting a bit worried about it, but weather delays are to be expected. The shipper had great communication and great knowlege ...

Great experience shipping my boat

I live in Canada and found a great deal on a used boat and trailer. I couldn't drive down to get it due to work. uShip matched me up with a great driver who got it to me at less cost than me driving it myself! Now I'm looking for a new truck and I'm probably going to have it shipped up to me as well.


Went as agreed

Canadian winter coast-to-coast.

After retiring from the Navy I used my final move to relocate from NS to BC. We did not want to leave our 38' Hughes sailboat behind, but found regional shippers both too expensive and unable to accomodate our tight schedule. Referred to uShip by a friend, I found the site very easy to use and quickly received an excellent offer. Our shipper was House of Boats from Texas. We have shipped in the pa ...

Shipped a Boston Whaler from Florida to Newfoundland Canada

My story is short. I had a friend of a friend give me a price of $5000 who subsequently was unable to to the job. I was very anxious about finding another person. Some of the commercial quotes I received were as high as $6800. The I came across USHIP after an internet search. I listed my job and in 24 hours I had 20 bids (WOW). I chose one and had the boat delivered for $3900. I saved a $1100 Not ...

How Do We Get Our New Boat Home?!?

Our family decided that we had outgrown our old boat and it was time to go bigger. Our three daughters, now teenagers, need a lot more room for all of their belongings and Dad needs a bit more space away from them! Long story short, we found a great deal on eBay and in no time were flying down to Florida from Toronto in January to inspect and do the final dealing on our new boat. We stored the ...

Boat Delivery

I was Learya bout using U-Ship at first, but will never feel this way again. Matt, from Wovlerine Transport delivered my boat from Stratford Connecticut to Toronto. Kept me informed every step of the way. Totally hassle free. As a matter of fact, he treated me as though I was family, reassuring me ever step of the way. Incredible Patience, outstanding communications, bottom line he cared, a ...


good experience, lots of bids, would use uship again.

U-ship made it easy! Shiped my 28'0 boat from Ft. Myers to Georgian Bay Ontario. Great experiance!

I purchased a 28'0 fishing boat in Ft. Myers Florida for use in Georgian Bay Ontario Canada. I was to busy to fly to Ft. Myers and arrange all the details for getting it home. I went on the internet and came across U-ship. As I looked further into the role U-ship plays in connecting a shipper to a service provider and bidding for the shipment, it all made sence to me. The experience was easy, from ...

Great experience shipping my pontoon boat.

Thank you Maplevalleyfarms for an excellent service. Picked up my boat on time just as he promised, delivered my pontoon boat to my house on time without any problems as he said he would do. Communicated with me during the drive. The driver was very curtious and very professional. But the best of all was his price very very reasonable. Thank you again to Maplevalleyfarms for a great job of delive ...

Boat shipped from California to Calgary

I bought a boat from Ebay. I got the e-mail saying that I was the winner. Oh oh, now how do I get it to Calgary? I found this site while searching for transport companies. I'm glad I did. It saved me a considerable amount of money. Federal Towing placed a very competative bid, which I accepted. We had a couple of small hiccups with scheduling a pick-up, but other than that everything was gr ...

Shipping my 22' Starcraft Islander from Ontario to the West Coast

The boat was beautiful and in pristine shape. Originally planned to ship by train but the dimensions were just outside tolerance without going to a full flat bed at a cost of $15,000. A friend of mine mentioned your web site and within days I had arranged to have the boat shipped by eastwest901. It was a flawless move with excellent communications on progress and arrived on time in great shape. ...

great experience shipping my boat

I was looking to ship a boat I purchased in Ontario to Saskatoon. I was having a very difficult time finding a company to do it for a reasonable price. My boss told me about Uship so I listed it and had a bid within a few days. The bid was very close to my target price and the boat was delivered within a week. Overall I am very happy with the experience and would use them again anytime.

Move Boat From Boca Raton FL to Manitoba Canada

Uship was the perfect way to do a very customized move to a remote location. I will definitely us Uship again. Using traditional shipping methods, I could not get the move done. I had to face too many logistical problems. With Uship my shipper was moving only my boat and on my terms.

2100 miles across the US/Canadian border.

Buying a sailboat sight unseen 2100 miles away can be an unnerving experience. Hiring a transportation company to deliver this only adds to the stress. The Uship method of finding someone to deliver your new purchase really helps to relieve some of this stress. Feedback from others who previously used the service provider is invaluable in helping to make a decision. To be able to compare provid ...

enjoyed using uship it made things alot easier

i needed a boat hauler very fast and did not no of anyone in the states but uship was very helpful and it helped me get my boat on time

Great experience shipping my boat

I didn't know about Uship until I had to ship a boat from California to British Columbia. I selected a shipper based on feedback and he did a great job at a fair price.

Super service with my boat shipment

I purchased a boat in the mid-west for delivery to the Montana - Alberta border. My shipper, Frank Hagwood - Hagwood Transport was super. I was called with an inspection at pick up and knew exactly where my boat was the entire trip. Frank certainly took alot of the worry out of this transaction for me. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Frank & Hagwood Transport.

Lund boat

uShip is an excellent tool for looking for a service provider. The feedback/ratings from different shippers on the service provider gives you an ideal on their reputation. You are able to pick and choose by pricing and feedback. I would definitely use uShip again.

Great Experience Shipping our Boat

We were shipping a 23 foot Yamaha Boat from Los Angeles CA, USA to Kelowna, BC Canada. All the terms of the bid were fullfilled and no changes were made. We feel we saved easily over $1,000.00 dollars in time and travel if we had to deliver the boat ourselves. Allan communicated very well and we will definitely recommend him to our friends.

Best experience anyone could ever have!!!

Long story short....I had won a boat on ebay and needed it shipped into Canada from New Orleans. I had talked to some larger companys, with way over charged rates and two-three week delivery time was no good for me because seller wanted boat gone ASAP, then I found this wonderful site put the boat up and met this great gentlemen who said could tow the boat up for the best price ever and on top of ...

Cruisers 3375 Shipment

This was my first experience shipping a boat from down south to my home in Canada. The U-ship web site made me feel like I was getting a fair deal, and I was exposed to a greater number of service providers. The lowest price was not necessarily the best deal, as my cargo was precious, and I was able to gage the level of service that corrisponded to the price that was offered. The feedback secti ...

Great service from UShip

After purchasing two seadoo's from Florida I was looking for a way to have them shipped 4500 Kms to Canada. UShip was very easy to find a service provider. The service was great very fast, the shipper Duffwill was great. I would use uSip for any shipment i ever needed. Thanks

A great experience in shipping

Hi there, If you ever get the experience to buy a boat or vehicle cross-border, do the following..... Use Goodin Boat carriers. He did a tremendous job bringing my boat from Southern California to the Washington/ Alberta border as I live in Alberta Canada. It was seamless! Easier then I thought it would be and for the price of transport, I couldn't drive down and back for the same price. (Maybe ...

Good expeerience shipping my boat.

Using USHIP was very efficient and quick. Communication is easy and quick with site. Very interactive, and proper info provided with service providers to help out with decision on selecting service provider.

26 Ft. Sailboat transportation.

It was a challenging transport job, from Bath ON, to Vernon River PEI. Which was handled to my full satisfaction, in a very fair price range. Karl.

Returning Boat & truck from Southern Florida to Hamilton ON.

Having never used this type of service before I was a little leery to say the least. The value of my boat is substancial and having someone other than me take care of my baby, was not easy. However everything worked out fabously and gave us another 4 days in the south which we would have spend driving back north with all the other snowbirds. Delivery was on time with NO BORDER issues at all.... ...

Great experience shipping my boat

My first time using U Ship so I was extremely cautious and wary especially trusting someone to haul my boat across the U.S. and into Canada. Dave was awesome from the first time we communicated and did absolutely everything he promised and the boat was at my dealership sooner than I anticipated.

Boat Shipment across Canada

USHIP gave me the confidence to purchase a boat online half way across Canada. The site was easy to navigate and I was reviewing bids in no time. The shipper I used was fantastic even as schedules changed. Process was very simple overall and I saved a bundle. I will definitely use USHIP again.

Yamaha SR 230

Wanted a bigger boat as my boat only seats a total of four and can't get me out of the water with four in the boat. I won't pay big money for a boat and in the US boats are much cheaper than Canada. The obstacle is shipping. Uship made getting a quote easy. I I have shipped up a van and and SUV prior to Uship and Uship was by far the better way to go. Uship really leverages the power of the i ...
