Testimonial from Pat
You guys are my haulers for life! When I recently needed to move Shaboom, a Westsail 32, from Florida to D.C., I contacted local haulers for quotes. Few fit my budget and time restraints. I went online and searched a bit more but what I found was that despite grand customer service advertising most had lots of fine print about scheduling, pickups, drop offs, etc. I’ve had boats moved long distances before and I knew it didn’t have to be that difficult. Through a stroke of luck I came across Lt.Col .Bob Queen and Boats Express/Specialty Shipping. Gone were the caveats that made me feel like I was doing the hauler a favor! Bob simply asked when I wanted it picked up and where I wanted it delivered! I waited for the other shoe to drop, but it never happened. I signed up and Bob made the arrangements. As the pickup date crept closer, there was a glitch in the hauler’s schedule that made the original haul date unworkable. The new date meant that I would be on the hook for additional storage costs in Florida. Instead of getting the expected shrug, Bob offered to rework the estimate to minimize the impact to my wallet. When Shaboom arrived at her new home she was just as I’d left her in Florida. The driver did a great job in transporting her up. I couldn’t help notice that the random bracket was taped on two of the four mounting bolts, which wasn’t the way I’d left it when I’d prepped the mast for shipping. Apparently, they had worked loose during the run. The driver told me he knew from experience that problems could arise if it had been left that way, so he took the time to remedy the situation. He could have just as easily carried the mast as it was with no thought to something as detailed as that. I highly recommend Boats Express for any hauling needs. And, if you’re fortunate enough to get the Colonel on the line, don’t let him go!
Testimonial from Dr. Larry
Dear Bob Graviss, I wanted to write you a quick note of appreciation for all that you did to get our 32’ Uniflite from Long Island to Stuart Florida. John, your driver, was very professional, and the boat came down here without any damage whatsoever. BoatsExpress was also the lowest price hauler, but even all that is not what makes you special. When I got dumped for no reason my another boat hauler on the day of travel because he re-routed a driver to an easier pick up the next day that did require a permit load, over height and a low rig, and all that, I thought I was sunk. But then you came up with another driver and were only one day off from the original haul date, I could not believe it! Today the boat is in our own slip at the Marriott marina here on Hutchinson Island, and we could not be happier you and Boats Express. Best regards,

Bob Queen: Just following up to say that the boat arrived safe and sound. No damage. I appreciate all your help coordinating all the details. You were very responsive, courteous and professional. Your price also was very competitive with other shippers. I will certainly give you a call the next time I need to ship my boat. Do you have a copy of the bill of lading? I need to send it to Florida for tax purposes. Thank you.
