Long distance moves can be stressful, but there's a better way. uShip allows you to list your household items and have moving companies bid on your listing in our reverse auction marketplace. Our unique process ensures you are not only getting a great moving experience, but that you aren't overpaying for it! So what do you need to do to ensure a painless long distance move? The first step is to take a complete and detailed inventory of the items you need shipped. Particularly the number of items, such as boxes, crates, dressers, etc. so that you can get the best possible bid. You also need to notate items that require special attention, such as a safe, piano, fine china, or other valuable or fragile items so that moving companies can give the most accurate quote and prepare themselves with any necessary speciality equipment. You also will need to provide your moving dates to ensure that providers will be available.
Once you get a few bids that fit your budget the next step is to do some research on the providers. Within our marketplace we provide feedback from shippers just like you on nearly all our active moving companies. Great movers are rewarded with 5 star ratings and solid testimonials from previous moves. Just another way that we help make your moving experience better.
