Shipped a Sailboat from Iowa to Washington destined for BC, Canada

We had Witter shipping deliver our Hunter 260 which we bought used from a fellow in Iowa. We saved some cash buying out of the USA and were happy with the uShip experience. Some of our bids were as much as 3 times the price, so the money we saved allowed us to make a vacation out of meeting our shipper in Washington, over a 12 hour drive from the central interior of British Columbia, Canada. Joh ...

Boat @ Trailer

Bought a boat on line in Kingman AZ. Kids were back in school, so a road trip was out of the question. I thought if I could get it delivered with in a days drive for me I could leave work. I found a shipper that could meet my requirement to a tee. I went through with it and no issues at all. When all said and done it was a positive experience, and would do again.

Great experience.

All worked better than expected. Was cautious at first not having heard of U ship but the experience was a positive one. Would recommend our shipping people-Hinkerly Transport and we would use both U ship and Hinkerley Transport again.

uship has no department to speak to someone

Just a quick rant....people beware uship only gives a credit to you if your shipper is a no show.they don't refund only credit and no department to phone numbers ...Second shipper I found same price and uship charged me 278$more then first one to complain to get my money back...big scam

Everyhing went well ; very good communication between the partys.

I have a Wellcraft 35 feet that was leaving lake Magog to be delivered in Ile Aux Noix in the lake Champlain. I had a bit of problèmes with the Marina Merry Club at my departure , eventhough I was not present Dubois was there to communicate and arrange things so that the delivery would progress. UShip is an interesting tool and i would strongly recommand it !!


2 cancellations with no penalty to service provider. Had to wait 72 hours to get prepaid funds back from Uship when service provider did not show and would not return either my calls and emails or Uships calls or emails.

Boat moving at an affordable price

I purchased a tandem trailer to move my sailboat from Gananoque to Vernon B.C. After getting several quotes over $12,000 from boat hauling companies I put an auction up on the uShip website to see if I could actually afford to move the vessel. Tim offered me a quote that easily saved me $8000.00 and the timing was absolutely perfect for me. He let me know when he was setting out and arrived w ...

Easy process and got the job done.

Shipping a boat from the US to Canada and I didn't know how to go about it. Uship made transport available and the job was well done. Duboismarine did and excellent job and I would use uship again.

Seadoo boat

For me to get this boat from Kenora to St. Catharines would never happen for the low price I was quoted from Tim. Saved me time and money at the same time. Can't say that often. Would use him and uship again and again. Great for the customer and for the independent truckers out there.


Transporteur très sympa!,à l'écoute de son client, et le tient informé lorsque le chargement est effectué et sur la route. Mon bateau est arrivé a la date et heure prévues, très ponctuel!, bref, c'est un transporteur que je recommande vivement pour sa gentillesse, sa qualité de travail et son professionnalisme. Merci encore!.

Boat Freight

My Boat was freighted by Peter Neave and I have no problem recommending him to anyone..Nothing was a problem

Transport bateau

Bonjour, J'ai utilise uship pour trouver un transporteur pour déplacer mon bateau du port de lanton a celui d'anglet. Je suis très compétent de la prestation.


No sabia como enviar una tabla que excedía las medidas de la mayoría de las empresas dedicadas al envío de objetos, y gracias a uship logré realizar el envío a un buen precio. Mi transportista, SUPERVAN, genial, muy profesional en todo momento y puntual con la entrega, me mantuvo informado de todo el proceso en todo momento.

Remorquage de Bateau

Souhaitant transporter notre vedette fluviale sur sa propre remorque -poids total 2.500 Kg- de la Seine vers la Sarthe nous avons passé une demande sur uShip. Nous avons en moins d'une heure reçu une offre chiffrée tout a fait raisonnable et mis en contact avec le transporteur.

2006 boston whaler 205 conquest

I ship my boston whaler for wilmington NC to Port Hueneme, CA. I'm glad i used Uship ... I very happy using OneSourceLogisticsGroup LLC. Thank you Charles Alvarez

No hassle and no worry shipment

ED took great care and handling of my boat shipment. It was shipped and arrived on time. I would highly recommend HullonWheels any day!

Hobie Cat shipping

I used UShip to transport my Hobie Cat from Winnipeg to Nova Scotia. I am extremely satisfied with both the site and service provider. I would not consider shipping in any other manner in the future.


From bid acceptance to pick up and delivery of boat! The best service I have ever received! Unreal experience , thank you again Tim.

Great job with my boat

Jim took great care of the boat and was very thourough when handling it (noticed small details that others may have missed) so it arrived in great shape. I was also kept informed of the status which was important to me as I needed to schedule a crane to offload the boat. Thanks Jim.

First class boat delivery.

I needed my boat collected in Southbourne and delivered to Dumfries in Scotland by 8am the next day. Martyn did the job admirably, delivered my boat safely and on time. Kept in touch to keep me updated on his progress, absolutely first class service at a fraction of the cost of any other quote I had.

Great experience the second time....

I hired Mark from Legacy Boat Carriers and he was a complete no show. Really unfortunate that a big company like UShip, uses such an unreliable fellow. However I did hire Blake from Pierce Towing and had exceptional service and communication throughout the entire experience. Highly recommend Blake to anyone. Regards Andrew

Everything ended up turning positive

Phil had a breakdown which delayed delivery, but it was fixed and he came up immediately after, glad everything turned out the way it should of, I was kind of nervous being I'm new to this Thanks

Deliver 240 Sea Ray BC to NWT

I bought a 240 Sea Ray, and needed it shipped from BC to the NWT. I had heard about UShip, and decided to give it a try. The Uship site is a bit confusing, and once posted, very difficult to change (currency, locations). The deposit required by UShip seems a bit high for what they provide, which is basically a forum to connect shippers with service providers. The service providers, who were int ...

new boat

had just purchased my first boat. problem it was in Sydney. after a little worry on how to get it to Melbourne i found Uship. problem solved!

Transporte de Barco

El Barco ha llegado a destino como previsto, de Francia a España. Todo ha ido bien, con frecuentes llamadas para informar del avance del servicio, a un precio competitivo. Volvere a utilizar Uship y el transportista si necesario. Gracias

très satisfait du transport de mon bateau

Je recommande le transporteur Mr Joel TONCELLI pour son professionnalisme et le soins apporté lors du transport de mon bateau de Lége-cap-ferret a Port Camargue.


Hola, entiendo que uship me ha cobrado 30 € que no me había advertido previamente,`por lo que supongo habrá sido un error y me lo devolverán. Por lo demás todo correcto; el transportista muy bien- SAludos. Florencio

Lo recomiendo ampliamente !

En el envío de mi lancha de pesca desde carolina del sur hasta Arizona, John resolvio todas las inquietudes y dudas sobre la transportación, no hubo ningún contratiempo, la entrega fue en la fecha acordada Gracias John y Uship

Use this service!!

I wish all carriers would subscribe to this service to broaden the range of delivery services. Relying on FedEx or USPS, etc for international deliveries of even small items is is not my favorite thing.

Boat from Indiana

I live in Alberta, Canada. I bought a boat on Ebay in September of 2013 but because of weather concerns had the boat stored until this spring. In May, I contacted Uship and accepted a bid to transport the boat to Great Falls Montana where I planned to meet the shipper and transport the boat across the border. That shipper called a week before the scheduled delivery and said that he had a young rel ...

Shipped my boat

Shipped my sailboat from Toronto to Vancouver recently. Used uShip for the 1st time and very happy with the results. Ended up selecting Blake from Ushipwithpierce. Everything was as expected and the boat arrived early. Blake was professional and friendly. If I ever have to ship something again I would not hesitate to use both uship and Blake Pierce. Thanks

36 ft ketch

Dubois marine contracted to move our boat on january 21st 2014 for the move to take place april 15th at 9 am. At 2 pm april 15th they called and said they couldnt make it and didn t show up for 8 more days and as of this date may 30 2014 have not taken our boat any further than Quebec. They say as of now they wont load it and come down here until i pay the final 50% of the rate. After already payi ...

moving boat

First time using U-ship. Had a boat shipped to Boston from Michigan at a reasonable rate for me to drive down to Boston and return to Canada

Très bonne expérience dans le transport de mon voilier

Habitant à côté d'ARCACHON, L'achat d'un voilier à PIRIAC SUR MER (44) m'a amené sur USHIP sur internet afin de trouver un transporteur, le bateau (7,80 m) étant trop grand et trop lourd pour mon véhicule. Le jour même, j'ai eu des propositions de devis et le prix a orienté mon choix. Dès ma réponse positive, j'ai été contacté par le transporteur qui s'est avéré super sympa et efficace. Nous av ...

Boat transport

It was through Uship that I found William Bird to deliver the boat that I purchased on ebay. Everything went well and I consider the overall cost excellent and the opportunity to meet Mr Bird the transport agent excellent. I will use Uship when I next have a delivery problem.

Easiest part of my move

I had no idea where to start. Uship agent, Nick, was extremely helpful Even after the dates got moved around. Bids were exactly what I was after and I found the service I needed at an awesome price.

Excellent service!

I used uShip to ship a sailboat I bought in the internet. I received a few bids and selected one that matched my timing requirements. The service received was just a blast! I believe I saved over $1,000 by using uShip. Thank you!

collection of fishing boat on trailer

I listed the collection and delivery of a mayland fishing boat on a 16ft trailer from Portsmouth to Blackpool .This was my first use of the Uship service .The process was very easy to use and setup,by the time that the listing had ended I was in no doubt that it was uneconomical for me to make the journey from Blackpool to Portsmouth to collect the boat considering the amount of fuel and along w ...

Delivery of Malibu 2013 TXi

My initial transporter I had booked with UShip had cut ties and communication with me near the shipping date. After several attempts to contact them, I sent out an inquiry to UShip asking for support. Shortly after my inquiry, UShip called me informing me that the service provider had been taken off their vendor list due for reasons unknown to me. I would have appreciated notification of this ...

boat shipment

great experience shipping my boat imterstate

Dale was great. Very professional and really took care of my old 1970s savage 16ft half cab. He even got the mudguard mounts welded when they broke off halfway (due to an being an old rusty trailer). Would definitely use him again if I need to ship any trailer again!

First time, and amazed how smooth it went

After getting dozens of quotes from some of the nations biggest shipping companies, and getting no definite pick up or delivery times without first being told I needed to send the company 300 before they would even contract a shipper for me, and that i may have to wait up to a month, I decided to try u-ship. Within 3 days of posting my auction I ended it early because I had received an accepta ...

Great experience shipping my Sea Ray 220

Friendly and courteous, arrived early , very safety conscious. I knew my boat was safe in their hands!

1998 proline sportsman

Shipped a 1998 Proline Sportsman from NC to Maine. Tim did a great job at a reasonable price. Ahead of schedule. Highly recommend. Will use again soon!

boat shipping

It all worked out fine, but as a first time customer, it is uncomfortable entering a contract for shipping with a shipper I had never met, could not look up, and could not speak to on the phone. My service provider was good though, so it all worked out.

Needed assistance transporting a boat

I was let down by a guy who was supposed to transport a boat for me in Texas. I posted the request on Uship and within 45 mins I had a deal. The shipper was fantastic from start to fin. The boat was not ready for collection at the agreed time and the guy waited patiently for 2 hours.Once on the road he delivered and completed all the requested paperwork. Couldnt ask for a better communicator ...
