Default Boat transport from Los Angeles to Iowa...

Any one know someone reliable and reasonably priced that could haul a 28' boat on trailer from Bakersfield CA to Des moines Iowa?

U-ship always makes me nervous. Thanks for any help in advance!

Chris, I have not... It always makes me nervous for some reason. I suppose hearing so many horror stories about people disappearing with other peoples stuff kinda ruins it for me.

You sure you dont want to deliver it and return the favor

I will be heading that way to pick up a boat I'm purchasing. Probably not until right after Xmas. I have a Freightliner Sport Chassis Pickup and have been trailering boats my whole life. PM me if you are intersted in setting something up.

Default Boat transport

Yes, on uship you will never know who bids on your transport. Is he insured is he reliable etc...

I recommend you to call All Coasts Transport, ask for Michael, you can deal with him. 818-924-2217 refer to Jay.
(allcoaststransport.com) .

Besides, you can learn good things from this boat transport guide: http://www.squidoo.com/boat-transport-dos-and-donts
