"or even a jar of pickles can do tremendous damage."
See, that's why assault pickles, defined in the US as any jar containing more than one quart or ten individual pickles, or pickle parts which are equal to ten individual pickles, are illegal to make, sell, carry, or possess in the US. And the exemption for fresh jalapeno peppers does not apply to the ones in any type of brine or vinegar, those are still pickles even if they're hotter than cucumbers.

No really, you can't make this stuff up....(WEG)

I find all the statements on this thread concerning uship offensive I got several shipments off that site its up to you the customer to research and ensure you are happy with the company you contract with one bit of advice is get a good insurance binder for the shipment if they hesitate to do that cancel and move to another shipper. Look me up my name there is the same as here. BTW I'm retired now

I have an article on my website on Getting Her Home with a few tips on the subject.

Mark ... wouldn't mind a critique from you on the article.

"I am definitely not asking "can this work" I am asking "will this work" "

Then you are asking the wrong forum. A common mistake, this looks JUST like the "Magic8Ball" forum.

But for an answer like that, you should ask over there, or download one of those apps to your smartphone.

And on USHIP, I wouldn't let them touch anything that I wanted to be able to use after the haul.

Catadmire, Why don't you simply sail it up the coast? Airfare from SeaTac to lax is cheap.

I'm looking at shipping a 27 footer from tejas to san diego. I am definitely not asking "can this work"

I am asking "will this work" cuz I like my boat.

WHy would anyone ask if its possible to achieve a positive outcome? wouldn't you rather know its likely, or possibly even guaranteed.

The first pg of this thread is awesome, great info. a couple of figures for what similar hauls have/ would cost, and a nice rundown of what goes on behind the curtain as well.

I have been in the transportation and logistics business for about 30 years and I would not use Uship to move a butterfly collection to the trash bin.

You want a bonded, insured, and fully licensed company that moves YACHTS every day. Google is your friend.

Thanks for all the input, time to move on from UShip

I think Dudley is the ship transport company I hear about most.
