Looking Boat transport

Well...I did it...Bought another boat. A Rawson Pilothouse 30. It is currently in New York and I want to move it to Central California. The quotes I have received thus far vary immensely. Can anyone suggest a mover that is reasonable and safe?

I recently moved a Mariner 32 from Salt Lake City to San Juan Island, Wa. I was getting some pretty high quotes from the boat haulers and then I found uship.com.
Put in your info and the haulers start bidding against each other to get the job. Just make sure you get proof of insurance, licence etc. You can check their ratings, references and other info on the site. The guy I had haul my boat did a great job for a reasonable price.
Good luck,
Dan
