Re: Truck delivery

I shipped mine from Palm Beach to NY 3 years ago. I used u-ship and called around. U-ship is not the cheapest. I ended up using someone else all together.
My BEST recommendation would be to call the big marinas in Florida and ask who they recommend. In addition; call the marinas in RI and Mass.
The big boys know who the good shippers are.
When cracker boy(fl) saw my shipper they groaned. Thankfully my boat came up in good shape. Thank god i was there to help place and pack.
The cheapest rates for moving a boat north are in the fall and vice versa for the spring. If you can afford to wait i would ship it north in mid october.
