Yacht transport in north-west France

We wanted to move our little (and new to us) sail boat from Brittany's north coast to the south. Going round Ushant didn't appeal (been there, done that) and the time and expenses of moving through the canal from St Malo to Arzal was looking unattractive too - outboard motor running for a week; feeding ashore etc etc...... Very pleased with the efficiency and economy of using professional trans ...

Best experience to ship my sailboat on a trailer to Florida

In 2009, we experienced the dream of bringing our sailboat from Quebec, Canada to Florida. We enjoy this very long trip. In 2014, we decide to use a truck moving to do so. We are very happy to say that it was a very good decision. The quality and professionnal work provided by WWBS transport was appreciate.

unser Boot

Wir waren sehr aufgeregt, weil unser neues Boot aus Dänemark kommen sollte und wir mit dem Landtransport auf dem Trailer keine Erfahrung hatten. Der Spediteur hat das sehr souverän gemeistert und alle unsere Fragen schnell geklärt und beantwortet. Gerne wieder.

Shipped a Sailboat from Iowa to Washington destined for BC, Canada

We had Witter shipping deliver our Hunter 260 which we bought used from a fellow in Iowa. We saved some cash buying out of the USA and were happy with the uShip experience. Some of our bids were as much as 3 times the price, so the money we saved allowed us to make a vacation out of meeting our shipper in Washington, over a 12 hour drive from the central interior of British Columbia, Canada. Joh ...

Boat moving at an affordable price

I purchased a tandem trailer to move my sailboat from Gananoque to Vernon B.C. After getting several quotes over $12,000 from boat hauling companies I put an auction up on the uShip website to see if I could actually afford to move the vessel. Tim offered me a quote that easily saved me $8000.00 and the timing was absolutely perfect for me. He let me know when he was setting out and arrived w ...


No sabia como enviar una tabla que excedía las medidas de la mayoría de las empresas dedicadas al envío de objetos, y gracias a uship logré realizar el envío a un buen precio. Mi transportista, SUPERVAN, genial, muy profesional en todo momento y puntual con la entrega, me mantuvo informado de todo el proceso en todo momento.

Shipped my boat

Shipped my sailboat from Toronto to Vancouver recently. Used uShip for the 1st time and very happy with the results. Ended up selecting Blake from Ushipwithpierce. Everything was as expected and the boat arrived early. Blake was professional and friendly. If I ever have to ship something again I would not hesitate to use both uship and Blake Pierce. Thanks

36 ft ketch

Dubois marine contracted to move our boat on january 21st 2014 for the move to take place april 15th at 9 am. At 2 pm april 15th they called and said they couldnt make it and didn t show up for 8 more days and as of this date may 30 2014 have not taken our boat any further than Quebec. They say as of now they wont load it and come down here until i pay the final 50% of the rate. After already payi ...

Très bonne expérience dans le transport de mon voilier

Habitant à côté d'ARCACHON, L'achat d'un voilier à PIRIAC SUR MER (44) m'a amené sur USHIP sur internet afin de trouver un transporteur, le bateau (7,80 m) étant trop grand et trop lourd pour mon véhicule. Le jour même, j'ai eu des propositions de devis et le prix a orienté mon choix. Dès ma réponse positive, j'ai été contacté par le transporteur qui s'est avéré super sympa et efficace. Nous av ...

Boat transport

It was through Uship that I found William Bird to deliver the boat that I purchased on ebay. Everything went well and I consider the overall cost excellent and the opportunity to meet Mr Bird the transport agent excellent. I will use Uship when I next have a delivery problem.

Excellent service!

I used uShip to ship a sailboat I bought in the internet. I received a few bids and selected one that matched my timing requirements. The service received was just a blast! I believe I saved over $1,000 by using uShip. Thank you!

Transport rapide

Bateau à récupérer sur Arcachon, pas de remorque donc appel à un transporteur. Excellent rapport qualité prix et relations humaines.

Worry Free Shipment

We purchased a high performance trailer/sailor that was located in Sydney. The seller offered to deliver the boat in Ceduna, SA. I needed to then have the boat collected in Ceduna and delivered to Perth. I posted the shipping requirement on UShip for either towed or flatbed. I had learned about UShip from the TV show in the USA. The bidding process was efficient and provided several cost effe ...

mein Transport eines 11m Stahlmotorseglers

meine 11m Stahlmotoryacht musste nach einer Havarie von Geesthacht nach Rosien transportiert werden. Leider hatte ich weder einen Hafentrailer noch ein vorbereitetes Winterlager für die Yacht. Ich habe gehofft über uship einen Spediteur zu finden, der mir beim lösen dieser Probleme, helfen könnte. Mit der Firma Bootscharter Malow habe ich genau den richtigen Partner gefunden. Der Transport wurde ...

Excelente experiencia enviando mi barco

Volveré a usar uShip cuando tenga que realizar otro transporte, el precio me pareció muy ajustado ya que pensaba que iba a costar bastante más caro y el transportista fue muy competente teniendo un trato mas que correcto y teniéndome informado en todo momento. El transporte era delicado porque yo no estaba presente en el momento de la carga del barco, de forma que fue cargado directamente por el t ...

Excelente servicio

Estaba teniendo dificultades para encontrar servicios de transporte de veleros por carretera y el único que me respondió me daba un presupuesto altísimo. La subasta de Uship te permite ver el precio real de tu transporte en el mercado y coordinar el envío en fechas con varias opciones asegurando la mayor conveniencia a un precio ajustado. La diferencia de precio frente al presupuesto directo ha ...

Voilier 8m sur remorque

Très bonne expérience, le rappatriement du bateau de Bordeaux à Laon m'a évité un aller retour. Merci à Eric pour son tres bon contact et professionnalisme Je recommande fortement

Bonne expérience

Transport d'un bateau entre l'Espagne et la cote Atlantique. Uship a permis de trouver un transporteur professionnel dans des conditions économiques deux fois inférieures.

Some confusion

Two examples were: (1) When a couple of bids came in, right back at the start, they were then withdreawn for no apparent reason. One3 was then reinstated, and then withdrawn again, only to be replaced by a lower bid. I know this is bidders activity, but it was certainly confusing to a newby. (2)When I accepted a bid, I was suddenly cut off from uShip communications. There was no handover to the ...

First Boat Delivery

Searching around for an economical transport company to deliver my boat from Lowestoft to Weston Super Mare. Uship quote came in at less than half of what some deliverers quoted me independently. Very polite and helpful transport company - with a personal touch to the whole event. As this was my first time in terms of boat delivery I was very impressed. Uship certainly delivered an excellent Eb ...

Montgomery 17 sailboat on trailer

I'm in TN and had a buyer for a boat in Hawaii. The buyer used most of his shipping budget for over water, and only had a certain amount for over land, so I thought I would have to take it halfway to get a good price. SemperFiLogistics was able to pick up in TN at a price that was very close to the amount and get it to LA in 3 days, saving me time and money. A container to Hawaii would have been p ...


Ich habe überraschend - fast spontan - ein Boot in Österreich gekauft. Das musste nach Kiel. Beim googeln nach ein Lösung für das daraus entstehende Transportproblem bin ich überrascht auf USHIP gestossen. Von Erstellen der Anfrage bis zum Erteilen des Auftrages war alles überraschend einfach und unkompliziert. Und nun steht zu meiner Überraschung das Boot schon vor der Tür.

Great experience shipping my boat

Had a great experience shipping a catamaran sail boat from Maryland MD to West Palm Florida.I searched the internet and found Uship and got various quotes and ended up with Thomas Trucking Company that did an amazing job. Paid for the trucking through Uship which gave me a code to give trucker when boat was delivered this made me very comfortable and easy way to get funds to trucking company. The ...

Boat delivered, and even launched!

I had heard about reverse auction sites from business books but haven't tried one, until now. I'm glad I found this site because I had my boat delivered from North Norfolk to Southampton for a really good price, and the guys who delivered it, a father and son team, were great. Many people would deliver the boat, and then it's job done so they'd just leave, not Bob and his son, they helped me launc ...

1 1981 Cape Dory 22 on trailer w/boat equipment

I do not use facebook to communicate- RC776 highly recommend. Be careful that any transporter has proper docs and you can verify. There are some shippers with Uship that are not who they say they are.

transport d'un misainier de 5 m

grutage à Bx et transport sur le fleuve charente. Excellente prestation du transporteur retenu. Professionnalisme, ponctualité, amabilité. En cas de nouveau chargement pas d'hésitation.

Great experiencing shipping my boat

I was shipping a 21 foot sailboat on its own trailer from San Francisco, CA to Vancouver, BC. I identified a price that I would immediately accept and received that bid on the second day. The shipper was exceptional and was wonderful to work with. He was flexible on when I wanted it delivered and was very helpful in every way possible. It was a great experience using uShip and I would defi ...


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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Second time I have arranged to have a boat transported using U-Ship. First time 1700 miles, second time 2000 miles. Both were great. Love U-Ship))

18 foot sailboat on trailer

This is a valuable and reliable way to find a quality shipper at a reasonable price. It is efficient and easy to work through.

Baot shipment from MO to ON (Canada)

This was a good experience, especially, comparing to my previous one. Initially, I booked transport with another provider. After 4 weeks of various delays and excuses I had to cancel; the season was getting close to the end. I re-listed my shipment and Ken's bid showed up. I am glad it did. Within two weeks the boat was in my marina, safe and sound. I got progress updates along the way, so I knew ...

Transfert oceanis 461

Entre Le Crouesty et Le Lavandou.Travail parfait.Très grand professionnel.Je recommande vivement Saltskipper.Satisfaction totale


We needed to move a boat within 2 days so we tried U-ship. We were contacted by a potential hauler the day we posted and had confirmation the following day. Everything went smoothly and I will recommend U-ship when asked by a friend. Thanks!

Cal 39 Boat delivery FL to VT

We bought a used Cal 39 sailboat in Florida and hired Ken Cox to skipper it up to Vermont with us. We had multiple unexpected mechanical problems due to contaminated fuel, fouled filters, and faulty wiring. Ken was nothing short of a magician! When the engine quit at sea he got it running again well enough to get us into Charleston City Marina. He worked 14 hrs/day for 2 days fixing things t ...

Sailboat on late model trailer VA to NM

Being able to track my boat by GPS while it was going cross country was very cool. All in all a very positive experience and next time I need to move the boat, I'll be back!

Sun Cat-Hwalpert

Bob Foster moved my Compac Sun Cat sailboat from Boca Raton Fl to Sharon MA. He did an excellent job. He picked the boat up when he said he would and delivered it when I requested. He is a true professional. I give him the highest ratings for efficiency, honesty and professionalism.
