“I recommended you to a good friend Richard Roll a few years back when he needed to transport his newly acquired vessel from Florida to Seattle. I had been very happy with your service when you moved my vessel from New York to Seattle previously. Richard and his wife Lee are now happily cruising the South Pacific in the boat you moved for them. Richard was quite happy with your results and it is always good to know that people you recommend to friends come through with the service. Thank you for all of your help in the past I am looking forward to using you again in the future (like on that mast I am trying to buy) and it is good to know that I can recommend your services to friends with the confidence that you will not let me down.
Keep up the great work Bob!”

“In behalf of the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your drivers at Boats Express for a very professional job well done in transporting a number of boats across the country in the past year. It’s one thing to transport a boat, or a couple of boats, from point A to point B. It becomes a brave new adventure to transport a total of twenty seven boats in large groups from two locations in Virginia to two new locations, one in Arizona and one in Florida. And, to complicate things even more, the boats absolutely could not be damaged during transport…because they had already been crashed – on purpose. When I explained to you that all of these boats were all part of a staged collision project, and are now used to train police officers in how to investigate and reconstruct recreational boating accidents, your fully understood the need to maintain them in their newly-pristine condition throughout the move. You didn’t view this as a negative point; you viewed it as a challenge, as did your drivers.
To add to all this potential stress, the logistics of dealing with all the pieces of the puzzle from long distance was, to say the least, a monumental accomplishment on your part. With me in Illinois, the national organization in Kentucky, the pick-up locations in Virginia, and the delivery locations in Arizona and Florida, I was pleased (but not at all surprised) that the logistics were coordinated with the precision of a fine watch. I know you have probably already had you deep sigh of relief and you probably want to shred any evidence of having dealt with us. That said my sincere thanks for your patience, perseverance, and sense of humor throughout the whole ordeal.”

“Rich and all the folks at boats express. Thanks for the great service you provided in moving my boat from Key Largo, FL to San Diego, CA. You made the process a very simple and easy movement despite me coordinating the service from a combat zone. You were very supportive and efficient in all your business. I appreciate your prompt and effective service. The boat was moved in a timely manner according to my schedule.”
Again great job and thanks.

“Just a note of appreciation for the way you handled transport of my boat from Florida to Ohio. I was especially thankful you were able to arrange taking out of the water in Fl. and also launching in Ohio.
Everything went very smooth and the driver was especially courteous as well as timely. Pls feel free to use me as a reference.”

Real testimony!
“My wife and I needed to transport a 40 foot vessel with a wide beam from Racine, Wisconsin to St. Augustine, Florida.
After quoting with many boat transport companies we received a final one one from Boat Express. We received the best quote from Boat Express. We had to transfer a boat in the past and had nothing but headaches. Well, we have to say that when it comes to service oriented and fast safe delivery hassle free of your vessel there is no one better than Boat Express!! The service was impeccable and the delivery was amazingly on time with no delays or extra charges at the boat yards. The most amazing part is that they provided an excellent service while we were on the other side of the planet in China!!! Those guys even contacted us in the most awkward hours of the night to make sure that we were satisfied. The Boat Express team’s courtesy and professionalism is above the expectation!
I recommend and will use them again in the future for sure!

“The boat arrived this morning right on schedule (actually a bit
Earlier than his estimate). Everything looked fine. Don, the driver, had Even added straps to better secure the boat for the long haul. We unloaded With far less hassle than the load in Florida {grin} and the boat is now Sitting in my driveway, waiting for the shrink-wrap to be taken off and Parts to be reassembled. I paid Don in cash and he wrote “Paid” on the paperwork. There was some Question about the amount – your email and the wording at the top of the Form said $2890 but lower on the paperwork there was a higher figure that
Don believed was accurate. I gave him a little extra at the start and
Intended to give him a bit more at the end, so I just rounded up to $3000 Today. But for future shipments it might be nice to avoid the confusion. In my opinion, Don is a great driver. I recommend maintaining a Relationship with him. I would use him again without hesitation. Also, YOU folks are wonderful. Everything in your control went smoothly and As promised. I was especially thrilled that the two of you showed up in person last Friday… that was unnecessary but with the MarineMax hoist Problems it turned out to be a deal-saver. Imagine how things might have gone if the only two people standing there at MarineMax had been the boat Dealer and the truck driver. I suspect the entire shipment would have Unraveled and we’d still be trying to figure out a solution. Instead, a little delay and we were back on track. My heartfelt thanks! I know the importance of good references. Please be assured I’m ready to be A reference for you and your organization should that ever prove useful to you. You guys are the best.”
Thanks for everything!

Hi Rich,
“Steve was great. I was very pleased with how he handled the boat. It took him several tries to get it out of the marina in Hudson and he finally made it! I was worried he might not. But anyways…it’s in its new home and I’m still working on fixing it up. I’m sure I’ll use you guys again if I need to but as things are now everything is working out.”
Thanks again,

To Whom It May Concern:
“I would like to say that Bob Graviss with Boats Express was willing to take on moving my deceased father’s boat from Maine to Washington State. Getting it out of its location in Maine was a challenge, and they were helpful in working through the details. The truck driver, Tim, from Rockland, Maine, was a pleasure to work with – very good about keeping me informed along the way and took very good care of the boat in transit.”

“Thanks so much for organizing the safe arrival of our boat from Long Beach, California to Roblin, Manitoba, Canada, about as far from any ocean as you can get. Your advice, assistance and instructions made what seemed like an unimaginably impossible task for us, considerably easier. As this venture was well out of anything we had ever undertaken before, we found your expertise and conversations with us online and on the phone very helpful. Thanks again.”
