3. Creating Accurate Listings

Accuracy is key when creating listings on uShip. Providing precise dimensions, weights, and shipping details (pickup and delivery zip codes, timeframes, etc.) ensures that you receive accurate quotes and that carriers can adequately service the shipment. Ask your customer to double-check their measurements and descriptions before posting them. This attention to detail will save you time, prevent misunderstandings, and enhance your reputation on the platform. Accurate listings lead to smoother transactions and happier customers.

4. Finding the Right Carrier

Choosing the right carrier is crucial for successful big-item shipping. On uShip, you can easily review carrier profiles to find the best match for your needs. There you’ll find previous customer reviews, their certification and insurance info, plus a feedback score. Look for carriers with over 90% positive feedback score (4.5 to 5 stars) and a track record of completing 20-30 shipments in the category. These top-rated carriers are reliable and experienced, ensuring your customers’ items are handled with care and delivered on time. Take the time to read reviews and compare profiles to make informed decisions.
