Great experience shipping my piano

Mountain Transport shipped my piano, quickly and efficiently.  The price was phenominal and the service outstanding.  I would use UShip again.  However, after my experience with Mountain Transport - I really don't need to look any further.  Thank you Mike for a job well done!

Great experience shipping e bay itam

I bought a spa capsule on e bay, I hate buying large things on there because it is so stressful to find a shipper and keep the price low. Then I found this page and it has saved me!!

GReat experience! Professional! Polite!

Don " TheToolman" provided great service! He was Polite and sensitive to our time restraints! He made every effort to accomodate our time sensitive delivery of a very large and heavy crate.  We would call Don again should the need arrive for another shipment.  He helped us move and complete a  sale item from MA. to TX. without batting an eye!  He had all the proper eq ...

Professional service with moving a Grandfather Clock.

Yesterday I recieved an antique Grandfather clock that I purchased online. Once I completed the purchase I then had to make the decision about how I would get the clock to my home. The seller was located about four and a half hours away, which was not too far away to drive and pick it up myself, but I just did not have the time. I found U ship and asked for some bids to transport the clock. Within ...

great move, Hot tub

On time, Great move, thank you Craig!

piano

My parents are moving out of their house into a retirement facility, and could not take their player piano with them.  The piano is the only thing left from my Grandmother, and I grew up playing it with my family, so I wanted my children to have the same experience.  However, my parents live in St. Louis and I live near New York City, and we had no way to get the piano her ...

Big TV

Jim shipped my 250 lb.  high-end tube television SAFELY at a fantastic price: about 400 dollars less than the closest competitor.  He also helped me situate it in house before departing.  

My 1st time....

First time using Uship the ebay seller suggested it  - the process went smoothly.  I like the way it used Ebay to pull up the listing and picture - so that way they would know what / where being shipped from / to.   plus they get a look at our Ebay feedback if they like to see if we are a customer that they would like to deal with too!

Good experience shipping old piano in Tampa

Big Boyz Moving Company did a good job moving an old piano from a friend's house in Seminole Heights to my home in New Tampa. They arrived early and were courteous and polite to my friend. Carried the piano so as not to damage the floor or the wheels. They phoned before they got to his house and phoned again to let me know they were on the way to my house. Were courteous and polite to me too and c ...

Antique Pump Organs

Mark and Steve are extremely courteous. They really do care for the items they are shipping as if they were there own. My shipment was five antique pump organs. Each one was wrapped with multiple furniture pads and plastic wrap. They were so careful as they unloaded each one. I would definately recommend them to anyone who needs a trustworthy shipper. They were right on time and we were alwa ...

Antique Cherry Secretary - from Wisconsin to North Carolina.

My mother in law passed away a while back and one of the pieces she left me was an Antique Cherry Secretary.  I shipped it to my son in North Carolina - upon receiving it he called and told me it brought back memories of his childhood - he could see it at Grandma's house!!  Thanks for handling childhood memories with care!

Tale of the Blues Brothers

My family wouldn't own the Blues Brothers today if not for uShip.  The seller of the items stated "Pick Up Only" in his ad.  The item was located in Murietta, CA and we live in Santa Maria, CA (400 miles to the North).  I had no way of getting to Murietta in a large enough vehicle to transport both statues, which stand 6' tall and weigh 50-75lbs.  However, the seller did agree ...

Fabulous Transaction!!

I am a Stay-at-Home Mom, but I still have to contribute some income to the household in order to continue staying at home with my two wonderful little boys!  I have been selling items on eBay to accomplish this goal.  I recently was able to acquire a new hot tub / spa cover from a store closing inventory liquidation that I sold on eBay.  These things aren't heavy at all, just bulky. ...

Tinman Sir Lancelot "slept" in the truck cab

Sir Lancelot is a large tin knight that was purchased in Florida while our friends, the Knights, were on vacation in 2005.  The original plans to get him to New Hampshire did not work out and he stayed on the porch for over a year.  He was too large to ship via the USPS, FedEx or UPS.  I finally found UShip and requested bids to get him home.  The first bids were much more ...

Womderful service delivering my Fathers dresser

Furniture Man was wonderful and carefully packed my Dad's antique dresser.  The dresser meant a lot to me as he recently  passed away and this was the only thing I wanted from his estate.  It belonged to my great Grandmother and Dad was 91 whe he died.  So transporting this was was an important issue.  And the price was great!! Tommy did a great job and I would highly recc ...

My 1977 Zenith console TV

For over a year and a half I have been searching for a replacement for my 1977 Zenith console TV, which was nearing the loss of its last pixel.  It was a depressingly fruitless search, as the company discontinued the newest model in March 2005.  They were as scarce as hen's teeth as we farmers would say - chickens don't HAVE teeth.  I really dislike the new style ...

wow-i'm impressed

I bought a extra large pipe organ that stands over 8 ft tall and weighs over 400 pounds within a couple of hours after putting my request in uship.com---KNIGHT MOVES TRANSPORT-- quoted a price that was more than fair. Within 2 days it was at my house with the owner/operater of KNIGHT MOVES TRANSPORT helping carry this extreamly heavy antique in the house.As a first time user of uship i am exstream ...

Trustworthy and successful transportation of painting

I was shipping a 6' x 6' painting I created.  Obviously, I was apprehensive and meticulous about who I selected.  Based on positive feedback, I chose Lowell and Cary, aka "lakerats."  The price was unbeatable and they helped load it onto the truck and move it into my apartment.  I would definitely recommend using them. 

Great first-time shipping experience

I had a 400-500 lb piano to be moved from California to an upstairs apartment in Nevada. Best Deal Moving Co. offered to move it for $400 and worked diligently to work with my needs. My husband and I had set to meet them in CA, drop off some Christmas gifts to our family and get home to receive the piano in NV. Unfortunately, we ended up missing our flight. In the morning I called Best D ...

Great experience having antique sofa picked-up

This was an antique sofa with some damage that required very careful handling. There was great communications throughout. I felt I was in caring hands. The sofa arrive without any problem. I highly recommend.

Positive Experience.

Good guy.  Freakin' hilarious.  Great prices.

Antique chest

This was the second time I used U-Ship to send an antique chest.  Worked out well so far.

Telephone pole delivered....

Well, I use a little literary license in the title. The actual item I have been waiting to be moved the short 300 miles from Ft. Worth to Lubbock, is actually a painting of a telephone pole. A painting just large enough not to fit in any standard car or SUV and painted with thick acrylic paint that cant be rolled or removed from the frame without damage. Each trip I took to Ft Worth I would c ...

To AK in December!

Adamantine Spine Moving (The name has a story.) took my piano to my grandson in AK in Dec driving the Alcan!! Could stop the story there, it was so unique. Some delays due to weather, holiday and eq problems but a wonderful learning experience for them and me. I enjoyed the vicarious drive! The men could not have been nicer. Called me and family with updates. My AK family had banana bread an ...

Shipped a surfboard

The airlines are very difficult to use for taking surfboards on trips. Its expensive and they dammage them. In my case my lonboard was to big to put on a plane anyway. It was also too big for fedex or UPS. Its only 9'2" which isnt that big for a longboard. Uship enabled me to find a carrier who gave me personal service and a great price. The board was delivered in perfect condition with no hassles ...

Great experience shipping antique piano

My great grandmother willed her piano to me.  Although not in the greatest of shapes (the only surviving material item from a house fire, 2 household moves, and almost a decade in storage), it had sentimental meaning.  I could not bring myself to pay the $1200-2000 the commercial movers requested considering its poor condition but yet could not bring myself to part with it eith ...

Special handling for a beloved piano!

Bob Teague of Washburn Moving just transported my beloved Wurlitzer spinet piano from Virginia Beach to Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania. This treasured instrument was bought for me by my parents in 1948 and has been with me ever since--through ten moves to various states over 59 years. Because we are planning to downsize, we wanted our grandchildren to have the piano for their learning pleasure. ...

First Time with USHIP...Sam's the man! Gives USHIP a Good Name!

Great experience shipping with Sam and if the need arises, will do it again!  He's Flexible, sincere, willing to listen, fair, and understanding.  Very trustworthy, good communicator, takes pride in what he does, very dependable and reliable, a true professional....

Perfect carriers in every way for my piano.

I am so happy to have stumbled onto U-Ships web site.  My piano would have cost an arm & a leg, & would not have received the expert care & service I was given by Adamantine Spine Moving.  Because  they specialize in taking 1 or 2 items across the country, Canada, etc., for multiple shippers, they can beat the big trucking companies prices, or the little pickup ...

Shipping my piano

My sister-in-law's piano had been in the family for years and was over 100 years old.  It has much sentimental value.  Robert Benedict (aka Stickman) provided the moving service for me.  He did a wonderful job and was so careful and professional.  His price was very reasonable.  I would use Stickman and uship again.  Thank you.

Shipping those heavy doors

I bought unique and very heavy round top doors off of E-bay for my old house.  The seller refused to help with the shipping or packing, and wanted them moved fast, so I was really stuck.  I found Chuck through uShip, and he wasted no time in picking up these incredibly heavy doors, crating them securely and getting them shipped to Hawaii from California.   It was a wonderful ex ...

Thank you! My items arrived safe and sound!

thank you for picking up the items  I didn't even know where Saratoga was    -  it was nice that you found the Ebay sellers location easily and mine!    I just want to leave short and sweet feedback   but I have 56 characters left  - so I'm thinking of what to type  lol    Dee was very nice and my daughter really enjoyed ta ...

Great job done under adverse conditions

Furniture arrived in good shape even though drivers caught in major ice/snow storm and delayed 32 hours.  They could have been proactive and informed me rather than me having to find out by making several calls, but all's well that ends well!   Extremely pleased with service and price overall.  Thanks Kimball Trucking!  Thanks U-Ship!

Piano move

We had an old upright Piano moved from Plainwell, MI to Tampa FL. Chad with CRL motorsports delivered it within a week....he did a fine job. His price was good too. I would use him again.

Top notch experience!

Our shipment of Nana's Stuff was very special because it included delicate antiques that are not only irreplacable but meant so much to us, the shippers, and our son, the recipient. The price and service were superb! We will ALWAYS use USHIP! Shipment travelled from the snow in PA to the beach of Miami, FL. Perfect!

I was more than pleased with Bradley shipping

I manufacture a cermic cigarette snuffer. I am making and selling so many in this market, I am destroying my molds. I flew to Arizona to make 22 additional molds (making my production capabilities three times times what it was). Since I flew, I needed to ship my molds home. Bradley responded to my request for quote, submitted an attractive price and we got together on an acceptable time frame. ...

KNIGHT MOVES TRANSPORT is the best!

Within hours of listing a shipping request on uship, I received an acceptable offer from Rick Knight of Knight Moves Transport. I had purchased an antique fire host cart from a gentleman in Pennsylvania (I live in Tennessee). Rick picked the cart up in PA the very next day and delivered it to me several days later (far quicker than I had ever expected). He telephoned me at least once each day givi ...

Perfect shipper!

I shipped an old toy pedal tractor that I had as a kid down to Tn. from Ohio. I didn't want to take it myself because of the investment in time and miney. I contacted U-Ship, and in a very short period of time, I had a bid from DavidNHecht. He had a very good offer for me, and his feedback from previous jobs was perfect. It still is perfect, because he did a wonderful job for me. He picked up my s ...

Great Experience

I had a great experience with UShip. I would use this service again in a heartbeat. I was able to easily find Mark. I received several bids and each one was better then the last. I needed my Grandmother's grand piano shipped from IL to OH. My Grandmother played that piano since before I was born. She left it to me in her will. You can imagine how important it was to me. It arrived in perfect shape ...

Great experience shipping my furniture and boxes

I had my grandmother's love seat, side table, and some boxes shipped from Illinois to Los Angeles. They had been in storage for several years and I was happy to have these things back again. Mark DeRaleigh was great! His price was very reasonable, and the best out there. I plan to use UShip and Mark again soon for the rest of my belongings back home.

Amazing piano movers...it was so easy.

My great grandmother's piano has been in our family since the 1940's. I can remember being a little girl and hearing my Dad playing it every Sunday morning before church. Recently, my parents said they were ready to pass it along to one of their daughters. I told my parents that I really wanted it, but I was discouraged when I was getting some ridiculous guotes on having it shipped the almost 3 ...

I LOVE AAA Piano Service

I was so impressed with AAA piano service. They were extremely curtious, affordable, and very dependable. I would definitely recommend them to any of my friends or family. Thanks again to Steve and his staff!

Excellent job shipping a 200 lb. Buffalo head

uShip made an easy task out of trying to find a shipping company when I didn't have a clue as to where to begin looking. I had to ship my husband's buffalo head from a remote area in the states to Europe where we are now living. Most shippers would only deal with a whole container. This was just one heavy, awkward crate. They guided me through the whole process and they were always there when I ha ...
