Shipping Cross country
I did a search but didn’t want to thread jack so?? Can anyone offer suggestions for shipping a prostar 205 2500 miles west. I would rather not “pull” the boat with me but do want to use it in our new home.

Know a good flatbed guy??? pa to id

If you dont wanna pull it, get a quote from uship

Well, seems we had the same idea at the same time. Lol

Cool! I was on Google trying to draw a 2,500 mile arc west of Cranberry Township. Best of luck with the move.

Can I have the Wolf Oven? :)

Beware, Uship is a bunch of amateurs looking to make a buck. They are often not properly insured and often not properly equipped to move the items they are moving. Watch one episode of Shipping Wars and you will see exactly what kind of yahoos Uship uses.

Check out actual boat movers. I drive by these guys fairly often and I've seen all manner and sizes of boats in their yard. They know what they are doing:

Other places around the US are similar to them and a google search should pop them right up. If you are not in a hurry and have some flexibility on time that can greatly reduce the cost. They can wait until they have a unit going one way and haul your boat back the other way.
