Nothing but trouble turns into joy

I needed to move a 20ft intermodal container about 20-miles. Because I did not know the exact weight of the container with its contents, I guessed that my forklift would easily lift it onto a trailer. Not even close! My forklift couldn't budge the container. Next, I went to the local rental yard and procured a boom truck with a 30-ton capacity, thinking that this will certainly do the trick. Fa ...

This service was an A+ transaction from top to bottom. Painless.

Shipping a variety of used goods to Florida

I accumulated close to a truck load of stuff that I intended to ship to a company in Florida which was going to ship it to my store in Haiti. The problem was that "I did not have a plan or a clue about how all that stuff was going to get to Florida". I requested quotes from a few companies. As far as I can remember, one quoted me $2969 (and some cents) and another quoted me over $4000. With USh ...

Outstanding experience shipping a large piece of machinery

I am just starting out in the metal fabrication business and bought this piece of equipment to help me get started. I admit I was nervous at first about using your service with so much at stake. My equipment was shipped on-time and without any problems, plus I saved a lot of money (65% off quoted price from broker). I would recommend this service to anyone. Thanks Uship.

Ecellent service

We needed to ship a dredge from California to Idaho. The machine was to tall to load on a lowboy and the only other choice was to have someone pull it with a truck. We used uShip for the first time for this shipment. We hired Duff trucking for this pull. We could not have been more satisfied with his service. Robert is a professional driver that ensures your shipment will deliver safe and on time. ...

Master Trucker and Kind Gentlemen

They moved my cargo container 1/2 across the U.S., hand unloaded and loaded every item in the container to put it where we wanted it, worked late into the night, took extra days to help us and were the most honest and kind gentlemen. Hire them for Any Hauling and you will be glad, they never give up and are 100% honest and do what they say they will. thanks

Shipping Container Shipment

I purchased a shipping container in Chicago. I needed it to be delivered to my mother-in-laws house in Indiana, so that we could load it with her household goods. I then wanted it to be transported to New Mexico where the entire container would be removed from the trailer. This was not exactly a standard shipment, but through this site I was able to get EXACTLY what I needed and for a FAIR PRIC ...

My shipment was of the upmost importance to arrive on time. It did so and the representative handling my shipment coordination assisted me with all issues. They were good at pricing and resolution of issues as needed.

Shipping my 113" Motorcycle Motor

After months of searching for the perfect motor for the custom motorcycle that I am building, I finally found it. The problem was that it was on Long Island, NY and I am in Houston, TX. After researching way to transport my purchase and realizing that it was going to cost me about $1,000, I turned to uShip. It was my first time, so I was unsure about how it all worked, but within hours I had 3 ...

Efficient shipping of 45000 lbs of pavers

I and some neighbors had the chance to take the pavers from a friends driveway about 70 miles away. We purchased pallets, and stacked the stones, and thenneeded to ship them. It was easier (I called multipled places and received bids), not to mention more cost effective, to find someone pretty quickly with the right equipment,and a good price. Were I to need to ship anything like this again, I wou ...

good job shipping my stone..

I broker all types of stone products @ wholesale prices. I used uship, because my former shipper dropped the ball to many times. I found a great shipper during this process and I appreciate the assistance I received from uship. Thank You..

Cheapest shipping I have ever heard of!

I purchased an engine on ebay for a car I just bought hoping to repair as a first car for my sister. I got the car dirt cheap and the engine even cheaper but I cant say the same about the shipping. I have never had to arrange shipping without having the merchandise in to ship myself. So I had to arrange this from a long distance. So I did some checking around and got a few prices from some of the ...

WOW!

If every trucker did business like Bob no one would go out of business!! 2 days from start to finish at a great price. I could not have asked for more.

Great experience using your site and shipper

Never heard of your site until I needed to find a shipper to haul some items from Texas to Calif. I was told about your service by a Tow Company that had heard about you folks from a trucker friend of his. So this was the first time that I used the service and have nothing but great things to tell anyone who will listen. I will recommend your site to anyone who needs to have something shipped a ...

Punctual shipping from jobsite to yard.

I needed to have concrete pavers delivered to my yard. I contacted uShip and placed a bid request. I recieved bids immediately and settled on the best price. Contact was immediate and I set up the pick up and the delivery for the same day. They were at the pick up point when promised. They arrived at the delivery point as promised. The driver was experienced and manuevered the truckload so that ...

Moving Sea Container

I acquired a sea container but knew nothing about how to move it. I needed to move it 129 miles to our farm. So, I contacted several local moving companies and none could help me. Luckily, one of the guys at the moving company told me about uShip.com and thought that I might find what I needed there. I registered and logged on and had no idea it was so easy. It was a great experience and I fe ...

Uship saved the day and the bank.

I came across Uship when I bid on a very large trade show display lot that weighed 14,000lbs. I didn't think I would actually win the auction, but the seller didn't accurately describe the shipping terms which led to low bids. I ended up winning the auction for $1.00, and paid less than $1000 for handling, fork lifts and freight. End of the day I received a $24,000 custom trade show display for le ...

EXCELLENT SHIPPING FOR MY CLASSIC AUTO PARTS

NOT ONLY GREAT PRICING, BUT OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SUPPORT AND TRACKING CAPABILITIES. VERY ACCURATE AND FAST. I PURCHASED A CLASSIC CAR IN PIECES AND IN A CRATE, THEY OFFERED A LIFTGATE AND ENCLOSED TRAILER FOR THE COST OF MOST OTHER OPEN TRAILER QUOTATIONS. VERY PROFESSIONAL AND I WILL USE THEM AGAIN FOR ALL FUTURE SHIPMENTS.

Great experience on U-Ship

I needed a shipment picked up with short notice and thought I would try U-Ship. It worked out great. I received several bids and questions and accepted NBS Logistics. Jim was on time ,communicated very well and my load was delivered as promised. Excellent experience. Will use this site again.

This is an awesome means to finding the perfect shipper. The ability to save money via bidding. We would use uShip again.

Good positive experience

We were relocating from Southern California to Oklahoma. Had a large load (45 foot personally owned dry van) of personal items and household goods. Lots of tools and a small garden tractor with attachments. We ran into complications due to our new home not being ready and had to change the schedule several times. Fred was great and always was happy to make changes. We worked out his schedul ...

First experience

I came across Uship in a search to find a better and more economical freight service. My account representaive (Ken) went above and beyond to help with the issues that I had. My first booking did not show up after 3 days, and left negative feedback putting the blame on me. The second booking, increased the rate, and even after paying the extra, did not show when they said they would. On the third ...

I am pleased with uship. It is a good service at a reasonable price and provides many options when shipping.

Great experience

This was my first encounter with uShip. Not being an experienced shipper at all I was very leary. I found uShip easy to use. The reviews I was able to read and the profiles of the providers helped me to overcome my fears of using such a service. I saved 30% in frieght cost by using uShip instead of a common carrier. I knew EXACTLY when my shipment was to arrive. Not "24-36" hour notice. ...

uShip Rocks!

I used to rent a truck, hire a driver and send them from SF to LA to pickup my lockers. This was the cheapest and easiest way to do it, until I found uShip. A friend told me about it and I am hooked. I saved a ton of money, time and hassle.

UShip

We have had nothing but excellent service from UShip. They have handle any problem that may have arrive with courtesy and professionalism. We use Uship for all our shipments.

The Carters did an excellent job, the pricing was very reasonable. They were on time, kept constant communication with me. They were very cheerful even the job got tough. I surely recommend their services to anybody. FYI, I will surely use their services again, again & again. Thank you very much Ronnie, and Sonya.

one steel shipping container

We were having difficulty finding a service that would ship our steel cargo bay, but when I found Uship on the internet we had no problem finding a service provider. It was like a genie appeared to help us. We found a provider that was perfect for the unique situation that we had. Our cargo bay was stored at a friend's house in a canyon where the road was very narrow and not a lot of space for a l ...
