Bringing two 20' boats on trailers home to me

The web pages on Uship were helpful in getting the bid out - the web pages did not accomodate the ability to pick up two items at two different address IE in Florida and then deliver to two different addresses in Ontario. So need to clarify this with the trucker after the bid was offered and accepted. This could be a problem with some truckers - but not for BOB. Bob ran into some problems whil ...


If you are moving a boat, then don't even think about working with anyone except Butch Haganland! He's a boat specialist, but even more importantly, he shows unparalleled flexibility and will be in constant touch with you during the inevitable delays at marinas in terms of getting boats out of the water and onto his trailer and dropping it at the other end. HIGHLY recommended!

this is awesome

simple, saved me 2 days of travel, saved me taking 2 days off work, saved me 400 $ of fuel and wear and tear on my truck. All for 970$. I couldn't justify doing it myself for that price. Thanks Uship!

porta bote

I had a portabote to transport from Sarnia to Quebec and i had no clue who to call so i saw uship on internet so i put my load on its site and got 4 bids the first hour.So i would recommend to anyone i know Uship

Finding inland transport

I was looking for a shipper to transport my boat from on place to the port. I dont live in US so searching and finding a shipper was little difficult as I will not be sure if they are real or fake. So uShip help me to feel save about my money.

Grady White 247 on a dual axle trailer

This was the first time I ever used uShip and I had no problems. I was very reluctant to put my new boat purchase into the hands of a driver I never meet, but everything worked out w/o a hitch (yes, that is a pun, but true).

Boat tow

I needed a small boat towed from Vancouver to Calgary. The first bid I accepted from Ironman towing turned into a gong show. His email did not work, only one of the phone numbers provided worked and it went to his voice mail every time. I spoke with him once and he said he would call me back the next day. 3 weeks later I still had not heard from him nor could I get in touch. I would recommend chec ...

great experience shipping my big boat across the border

I am from Canada and found a boat on the internet. I flew down and bought the boat but I had to somehome get the boat 1700 miles back to my house. The business I bought the boat from recommend I try I had never done this before and was skeptical but I trusted the person I bought the boat from so I went on line. I like how they would give you a range of how much your boat sfreight should ...

Nimble Voyager 26

Uship is a great service. Finding a good hauler in another state was a daunting task, until I heard about Uship. Worked out really well for us!

Tried twice before

I had tried to arrange shiping with two others from Uship but both guys turned out not showing up - Ron however was right on time - picking up and dropping off.

32 ft Carver Montego motor yacht

U-Ship allowed me to pick and choose from a variety of professional shippers, and their feedback process was a big help in assisting me in deciding who to go with. It wasn't the lowest price, but it was a good price and the service was outstanding. Very pleased.

Great to work with all around good company delivered and kept in constant contact throughout pick up and delivery and this was a tricky boat to load.

Trans-continental tow. 255 Pursuit OS

I live in Canada and purchased a boat in Alabama and my only concern was how I was going to get it back to Toronto. Uship solved that problem and the whole experience was easy and the shippers did an excellent job. I would use the service again in a heart beat.

Boat Transport

I urgently needed a boat to be transported the the Fens before the boatyard was too busy with its own fleet. Happily the provider was able to react quickly to the need and arrived promptly and carried out the journey without hitch and even assisted in the slipway launch. I was much impressed by the competent, personal service that was provided and the insistence on not leaving until not only the b ...

My shipment went well exept for Adam hit a pothole and damaged a rim and tire, He located a new rim and tire. I don't blame him for the damage it was just a road condition issue. Other than the tire all was good.

4.1 Metre Polycraft boat

UShip was an easy service to use, I had never heard of this type of service before, but everything from the time I signed up to the time my boat was delivered was very enjoyable. My shipper whom I chose from the people bidding on my transport request was fantastic to deal with and delivered my boat on time and was well taken care of. I would thoroughly recommend Tezza if anyone chooses to use his ...

Convoyage parfait, Saltskipper prend soin de votre bateau du début à la fin.

La période de convoyage de La rochelle au Cap d’Agde, n’était pas très favorable à la navigation, pourtant Saltskipper (Sylvie et Jean-Michel), a pris soin en permanence du voilier. Jean –Michel, professionnel hors pair avec 35 kg d’outillages, a réparé au fur et à mesure les petits soucis quotidiens que l’on peut avoir sur un voilier ; un coulisseau qui lâche, une bosse de ris qui casse , il ...

Ranger 29 Saiboat

Thank you UShip. and a special thanks to Ernst. If anyone needs anything hauled use Ernst, he is a man of integrity. He hauled our boat safely from Tampa to Corpus. UShip is the way to go.

Service from Maverick was excellent...however...

Maverick's service was excellent. The USHIP method and software is somewhat antiquated. One should be allowed to post phone numbers so as to offer clarity to a pickup/delivery if required. Instead, I was penalized for it as I inadvertantly left a phone number not knowing it was against the rules.

2004 Centurion T5

Surf and Turf hauled my boat up from Georgia in a timely, professional manner. Always in touch, their service was great. Price was right! I would use them again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Guys!

Move Colgate 26 to Florida

I just shiiped a sailboat from Maryland to Florida. I was a little leery of the idea at first, but uShip did all they promised and the boat hauler I hired through them was excellent. The delivery was on time and without any glitches. I am delighted!

Bob is a professional! He was on time and called daily to let me know how my load was going. What a great experience. Way to go Bob. My load was a custom boat and he got it to Michigan promptly and safely.

Boat transfer

We had a new boat transferred from the Gold Coast to Perth as this was the only boat of this sort left in Australia. U ship was easy to use and we had plenty of quotes to choose from. Website was easy to use. Service provider did a great job. Hope not to have to use uShip again but if the need came up, would definitely go straight to Uship

Very fast from initial posting of shipment to excepting a reasonable bid, to pick up and delivery in a matter of 5 days. Awesome!

Great Vehicle Transport

I got a boat towed from Brisbane to Adelaide. The service was 1st class and in timely manner. Highly recommend this service.

MC Scow

I saw this process done once before and it went so well that I when I needed it I tried it. I had accepted a first bid which unfortunately had to be cancelled, and this was the second bid. I felt comfortable with both individuals. This is well worth it.

Unknown fees charged

I paid an auction fee + an unknown fee to uShip. I was informed, out of the ~$450 total price that uShip took an ~$150 fee from the service provider.

2003 Seafox 237cc on trailer

Darrell @ Woodell Enterprise delivered my boat from Murrells Inlet, SC. Awesome to work with, took better care than I do myself!

Joe did a great job,I booked it last minute with a short delivery window. He got it done on time as promissed. i would use him again for sure .

1 Pallets

I cannot speak for a large shipment, but if you have one pallet you need picked up from your home, these folks are the ones to use. Fed-ex wanted 3 1/2 times as much for the same freight shipment.


Mike made transporting my kayak from Florida to Pennsylvania a snap! I never used a shipping company before but I had to find a way to get the kayak to my driveway. This was accomplished for half the price it would have cost me to do it myself. The whole transaction, from the time I logged onto uShip's site to the day it was delivered was only 5 days. Mike was great to work with, kept in communica ...

Swift40 and Winston Trucking did an excellent job of moving our boat from Texas to California. Best price and great service. Woulkd do business with them again.
