2 Items for transport

My family was cleaning out our parents' home and the only things let were a piano and desk that belonged to me, 350 miles away. My brother told me about uShip after I reserved a rental truck. I promptly got bids on uShip and cancelled the truck. The move worked out beautifully. Ted Nachbar delivered both pieces to me within days of the bid, at the exact time scheduled, and for a very reasonabl ...

Great uShip Experience

I want to encourage the use of not only uShip, but the contact BUFFALOPACKANDSHIP and the driver that was used to transport an heirloom rug. The search overwhelmed me as to how I would get this accomplished - but thanks to a search and finding uShip I was able to accomplish my goal.

Every step was awesome and I got my rug shipped with expertise and in the most t ...

Great Driver -- Great Experience

At first I was reluctant to use this service, but let me tell you, if you are considering it........the driver who delivered my shipment from Stanfordville ...

First Time Use, Great Experience!

I purchased a watchmaker's bench, about a 100 lb piece of furniture from Palm Beach FL and had no idea how to get it to the Tampa area when I ran across uShip.  With in 2 hours after listing the item I had 3 contacts with a very low bid for transporting the item.  My experience with the shipper was great; quality shipping at a great price.  Thanks uShip.  George Mandalou

Worked for me!

I got a small, yet heavy, item shipped from Ohio to PA for my target price from a reliable shipper with good feedback. He was able to fill his delivery van with other items as well for the same trip, so hopefully, it was a successful endeavor on both ends. I'd use the service again!

Extremely pleased with an affordable shipping company called popeyeodell

Knight moves says the day

We were having a terrible time finding someone to bring our bed from GA to NM.  We made a match and then the people were not upholding there end of the deal which made it seem that we would never find someone who would actually bring us the bed.  We lost out on money to the first try due to them not wanting to keep contact or follow through.  Mr. Knight came in and bid and saved the ...

Great service shines with good problem recovery

Everything about the service seemed too good to be true ...the friendly communication, the price, the additional items included at the original price, the prompt pickup, the scheduled delivery. Then the delivery crew complained they needed an extra man to carry the sofa up the flight of stairs, resulting in a return delivery a week later and an extra charge. My son had to again cut out of work to ...

Good reliable job shipping

Shipper was easy to access, did everything he said he would, exactly when he said he would.  Furniture arrived in pristine condition.  Great job and headache-free.

Great experience

Moving our bookcases with Moving Solutions was a very pleasant experience. Greg Howard, the owner was in touch with us every step of the way, and despite some unforseen delays, was able to meet our deadline. We recommended him to a friend the day of our delivery.

What a Wonderful Service!

Bill and Bob, retired military, moved my houshold goods for me last week that had been in storage for over 4 years.   They were fast, efficiant, and did it for less then half what other shippers were quoting.  They even made the smart decision and left a couch behind that a rat had been living in!! We appreciated it, since we didn't really need a new family member at this time :)&nb ...

Shipping a storm shelter

My parents were hit hard by Hurricane Rita, had no insurance and generally got no help from FEMA or any agency even though they are elderly.  Rita is the forgotton storm overshadowed by the news coverage of New Orleans.  Anyway, we vowed not to be a victim ever again so I had been looking around for a storm shelter.  I found one that fit our needs in California but shipping to Texas ...

Cheaper than U Haul without the hassle.

Cheaper than U Haul, Ryder, Budget.

Love Seat Sofa

I easily found the uship website upon completing a google search for companies that ship large items.  I had a small loveseat that I wished to ship to a family member, weighing only about 40#.  I had called local trucking a ...

His word was good.

Delivering our tall clock from Indiana to Washington, his truck hit 2 deer in the dark roads, yet he managed to have his truck repaired and still worried about being on time. He called to say he would be one day late. We are just thrilled with this kind of honesty and character in a person. Clock arrived in perfect condition and he handled it as he would a gold plated one. thanks Tim.

Wonderfull experience!

I recommend this fellow.

Small job treated like a full-load customer

We were shipping a very small load - just a TV and dresser. Our shipper treated us like we were paying for an entire truck load. The msolutions person could not have been more helpful. He had another customer change an order on his trip, affecting his schedule, but he still accommodated us without a misstep. He made his pick-up right on schedule and arrived ahead of schedule at ...

This was my 2nd shipping experience with American Freight. Price was right both times.

I would use American Freight again.

Moving my Bowflex

I bought a Bow-Flex machine from someone who lived only one state away so that I could save the money on shipping. BIG mistake. My husband and I drove up to pick the machine up, and while we were loading it (HEAVY) in our pick-up, the main unit slipped, knocked me off the truck, and I ended up in the Emergency Room (via ambulance) with 7 staples in my head and a broken rib. And a bill that is m ...

Great Carrier

I think I said it all in my feedback. This carrier is great. Adamantine Spine Moving from, Iowa City, IA did the finest job at th ...

antique reproduction kitchen range

Spine Moving: A pleasure to do business with!!!

Spine Moving did a fabulous job! I posted a bid request for moving an antique bed with U-ship on a very last minute basis. Spine Moving replied a mere 12 hours later and presented a very inexpensive bid including a thorough detailing of options available for the move. Not only did they come through on extremely short notice, they followed through with friendly commmunication. Did I mention the ...

Good job keeping me up to date with the goods being on its way

Outstanding delivery time. Appreciate the extra effort placed during bad weather in making the delivery on time.

Problem Solver

This was my first time using UShip. What a great problem solver it was. I had to clean out my parents house and ship the contents to my home. I estimated 20 or so boxes at 20-30 lbs ea. I had a very small window of time that this had to happen. At first, I had accepted a very good bid from a shipper and set up the dates. Unfortunately, that shipper called 3 days before the deadline and informed ...

Great experience shipping my piano and mattress

We had a great experience working with a U-Ship provider.  His price was half to one-third of anything else we found.  He was professional, timely, and everything arrived in perfect condition.

Best shippers in the US!

My Grandmother was recently moved out of the small-town Iowa home she'd been in for 63 years into a nursing home. As you can imagine, that house held not only thousands of wonder-filled memories for me & my entire family, but also tons of furniture. I left Iowa twenty (*cough*)-some years ago and just set down permanent roots in California.  Getting some of her pieces ...

Excellent price, service, and made an extra effort and would deal with Steve again.

My experience was Great!

I used UShip for the first time to resolve a problem. How to get my wife's Mother's China Cabinet from her sister's house in MD. to our house in FL. None of the over-the-road freight lines would touch it. It was too big to ship UPS or other package freight. I discovered UShip by Googling "Shipping". I'm so very glad I did. Our service provider handled the Cabinet as if it was his own, delive ...

Uship is a great find for us. We got our target price and were off to the races.

We had a loveseat and barstools we bought in IN and had to get them to CA.  We were afraid we werent going to be able to do it.  Then we found Uship and what a find.  Within a day we had a way to get our things.  Larry was great, he has a huge truck, so big that when he went to the sleepy little town in IN to pick up, his truck drew the neighbors and police.  He pulled his ...

Fourth time's the charm...

I found Uship online and thought it was a great idea!  People post what they need shipped and get bids from different companies.  My first experience with Uship was a very, shall we say, interesting, one, with a positive outcome in the end.  It all started when I found some furniture on Craigslist I wanted to buy.  The furniture was in San Francisco and I am in Portland. I post ...

Great experience shipping my sectional

My sectional couch and two ottomons were shipped from Los Angeles to Detroit.  The price beat competitors by hundreds of dollars.   When they say door to door they mean it.  They picked up my sectional from a fourth floor apartment in LA and delivered it directly to my great room in Michigan.  It was wrapped very well and it great condition.  The delivery gu ...

Got the Job Done

Todd, "the trucker guy" picked up a very expensive piece of furniture ($17,640.00) that I had borrowed for a designer show house to benefit the Audubon Society.  It needed to be returned to the NYC show room, and despite numerous problems (weather, engine failure, his daughters birthday plans) he got the job done within the time frame we had discussed.  He was professional, communicated ...

Our shipping experience was great!

Our shipping experience was great! On time, excellent movers, items perfect--no damage. Will definitely use again!

Furniture Shipment

LOWCOSTMOVES gave me the best price on several pieces of furniture I purchased in Georgia and needed to have shipped to Phoenix.  They delivered it four days after they picked it up.  Everything was well protected with pads and there was no damage.  I would definitely use them again.

Wonderful, stressfree shipping of fragile furniture items

There are furniture items that my husband inherited from his grandmother years ago (all antiques); and for years his sister has been keeping them because we have not had a way (that was not ridiculously expensive) to get them to our home.  My husband is in the military and we have never lived anywhere long enough or close e ...

Fast Table Shipment

Shipped drop leaf table and chairs from Phoenix to Pittsburgh.  Pick up done on time on a Saturday morning.  Did not know help would be needed, but all went well.  Items arrived Monday evening.  One chair scratched and one gouged.  Santiago handled issue very professionally.  Communicated consistently and followed through on what he said.  He should have done a b ...

I SAW A BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE STOVE ON EBAY AND THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO COST A FORTUNE TO SHIP IF I BID AND WON.NOT THE CASE,THANKS TO USHIP AND R+LCARRIERS.THANK YOU SO MUCH AND BEST REGARDS,EDMUND.

family heirlooms passed along

It was time for a couch and overstuffed chair to make their way to another sister. This furniture was our grandparents and has lived many different upholstered lives- in any incarnation- it shows up every year in Christmas photos: from my mothers childhood to eventually her grandsons'. I live in Seattle and I needed to get the items down to San Diego with about 10 days notice. I was new to USH ...

Happy all around!

Great experience shipping old family dining room furniture from NJ to FL w/ uShip's Oasis Transport.  That says it all!  Good price, nice people, timely and no damage to anything included in the load.  Can't beat it with a stick!!  We'll use this service again!

Drew finally has his bed!

My son moved to Myrtle Beach, SC from NY in May.  He could only take a few small items with him, so that meant NO BED!  I tried unsuccessfully two other times to ship his larger items down to him, but things didn't work out.  Either the shipper had vehicle trouble or they just didn't show up.  After communicating with Jessica from Uship, I decided to give it one more ...

Great experience shipping my couch

After a death in my family, my mover was very understanding and had no problem shipping at another time convenient fo me- how professional and curteous! "Erie3" aka Gary, had outstanding service, with constant phone calls prior to and at pick up location. Once he arrived in NYC with the couch, I still can't believe he was able to take that huge thing and move it up a narrow NYC apartment staircase ...

Shipping a loom turned out to be easy!

I have moved around the world at least three times, but shipping a single large item seemed more difficult.  Then, I found uship.  I entered a description of my item and within two weeks, the loom was in my possession half way across the country.  Professional movers made a prompt bid and then a prompt delivery, it was the easiest move I've ever had.

super job shipping my desk

Santiago did a wonderful job shipping my desk from Pennsylvania to Las Vegas!  I had been trying to get it shipped for a year.  He did it at my requested price and got it here fast and in great condition.  I would highly recommend him and I would use his services again. 

great shipper

eLeofiredtragon was an excellent shipper.  He kept me informed on when the lawnmower was pickup was, when he was in route, and when he would deliever, as well as when he delievered the mower to a friends business.  He bid my target price, which was lower than anyone else.  Would highly recommend this shipper again.  I would use uShip again.  I found with uShip, y ...

Shipping a Bike

The bike distributor I shipped to rejected Simon's delivery (my return), and was told to take it down the rd. a few towns away (which he did). He got the local retail store to sign for it, faxed back the proof of delivery next day, when I contacted the Distributor today, I received confirmation of my credit being processed today!!! Thank you Simon!!!     &nb ...

I was able to get my antique furniture thanks to UShip!

My mother had my great grandmothers furniture in her possesion.  It is a loveseat, rocking chair, and a chair bought in the early 1800's.  I always liked the set while growing up and she told me I could have it someday.  Well my parents were ready to have me take the furniture, but I live in Utah and they live in Missouri.  We couldn't fit the pieces into our car and renti ...

BGW47 kept his cool, even when the cops came.

I was having a dining room table and chairs delivered to Milwaukee from just outside of Cleveland. The whole experience went very smoothly. Except, when our deliverers, BGW47 got into town early, they called to see if I would like the table delivered that night, instead of waiting til the next morning, which I thought was sweet as they knew I was excited to get it. I was downtown and wou ...

Family Heirlooms

We recently moved to a new house in Tampa Florida and some of our old furniture did not fit or was not going to work out in our new space.  One piece in particular was a oak desk that had been hand crafted by my brother.  My new house had a built in desk and the piece was really too large to put into a bedroom, yet I couldn't bear to part with it.  I also couldn't bear to ...

uship is a great site

I am glad i found uship. everything has worked out great with these guys. the shipping company i found was awesome. they helped us ship servers from Phoenix to Los Angeles and then to San Jose. It worked out perfect for us. I got a great price from the shipper. I would recommend Uship to everybody.
