We did it with the Pathfinder without a single problem.... lol.. Just Kidding, someone here turned us on to USHIP.com and we got it to South Carolina for 2k. It was money well spent.
On the trip the transporter had a blowout just 3 or 400 mile into the trip, so we replace 4 tires. Other the rain, there were no other problems until the last 500 miles or so but then a hub nut came off a shredded 2 of the 4 new tires and the spindle!!!!!!!!!! He came the rest of the way on 5 wheels...... so now I think we have to get a new axel since a torsion bar.

Thanks for everyone’s help

When I bought my first Lavey in 2005, the owner of the boat business selling it drove it out from North Carolina to my house for no charge. The only condition was that if I ended up not buying the boat for some reason then I would have to give him 1500 for the trip out and back. I ended up buying it.. :D

There are extremely good detailed articles and "comments" about Uship at the links below. Actually, they are good for any shipping that a person is considering having done, especially through the intenet.

I think that the 1st and last links are the most educational.

Look at what the state of California has to say about UShip and the cautions that need to be exercised.

I did not look at the links but did you get pics of all the problems? I would suggest documented pics or video of the damages with odometer readings. This day and age it would not be too hard with you everday phones . Funny stuff tends to happen at the expense of others wallets.
