Quintrex 5.6m Marybourough to Sydney

Bought a boat over the net and work commitments prevented me picking it up in Marybourough from Sydney. A couple of minutes on the web identified uship, one day located a vendor who was backloading from Mackay in a suitable timeframe. A time and cost effective solution, which saved me 30 + hours in the car and hundreds of dollars in fuel. A quick & painless solution to a big logistics challe ...

Hassle free delivery

I bought a small boat at auction in Sydney somewhat by mistake wondering if I would have to drive down to get it. Placed a bid thru Uship and found Aquatic Boat Transport, cheap reliable and friendly. Delivered on time, minimum of fuss and in good condition. Friendly old fashioned service based on trust.

Boat transport

The service provider picked the item up on the date requested after a few unavoidable delays. I was always kept in the loop and the boat arrived in perfect condition. Excellent communication and price. AAA++ !!! Highly recommended.

From Perth to Melbourne with 3 days notice and so easy

I stumbled onto uShip and was hesitant at first being a US based site. Found a boat in Perth I wanted to buy online, but was concerned at the cost of shipping from Perth to Melbourne. Posted the boat and details on uShip, and within 16 hours had a very competitive quote. 3 days later, the truck pulled up at the vendor's house, loaded the boat on, helped the vendor with breaking their lock t ...

Moving a Bertram 23 1600 Kilometers

I didnt want to tow the boat 1600 k's due to fuel costs and if anything happened its very remote to find help, I was told about USHIP and posted, it took awhile to get a bid, accepted the bid and exchanged all the necessary details. At the last minute i had to move house early so i took the boat out to the crane yard ready to load and informed the provider of the pick up address change, not a pro ...

Jetski LA to Perth Australia

Received a quote for 30% less than the quotes I had received. Had my doubts about the level of service and hidden fees. - The service I received was first class and I now have a shipper "Allisonshipping" I will use EVERY time I buy from the states. THANK YOU USHIP James

What a blessing!

Hi, we live in a rather remote part of SA and trying to get someone to ship our boat back to NSW was proving quite a task. I found the Uship site on the web and within a couple of days there was a response. A perfect backload for a truck and of course as a back load the price was right! And the shipping company Newcastle caravan and boat transport even offered to store the boat until we arrive in ...

My experience with uship is undoubtly a positive experience,I found it a time saving which was great. Overall it a positive and easy way to have transport companies contacting you, who will deliver at a reasonable price.

Trailer Sailer transport Adelaide to Perth

I was very happy with the price and service that was provided. Thew boat turn up on time and was well cared for. It was stapped very securely on the tilt tray. Greg was very helpful and had to persevere with a difficult Marina in attaining the release of the boat. I am extremely grateful for his patience. I would use uShip again, and in particular would recommend Greg Young.

Great Vehicle Transport

I got a boat towed from Brisbane to Adelaide. The service was 1st class and in timely manner. Highly recommend this service.

Boat transfer

We had a new boat transferred from the Gold Coast to Perth as this was the only boat of this sort left in Australia. U ship was easy to use and we had plenty of quotes to choose from. Website was easy to use. Service provider did a great job. Hope not to have to use uShip again but if the need came up, would definitely go straight to Uship

4.1 Metre Polycraft boat

UShip was an easy service to use, I had never heard of this type of service before, but everything from the time I signed up to the time my boat was delivered was very enjoyable. My shipper whom I chose from the people bidding on my transport request was fantastic to deal with and delivered my boat on time and was well taken care of. I would thoroughly recommend Tezza if anyone chooses to use his ...

Kayak, Qld to NSW

Kayak from Sunshine Coast in Qld to Central Coast in NSW. Job well done. Very reasonable rates. Delivered on schedule and in good condition. I will be using uShip again.

Family heirlooms delivered.

After communicating with Tezza via the U-Ship question & response system, then accepting his competitive bid & being able to speak to him over the phone did not completely calm my anxiety re the transportation of my late Fathers' pride & joy. A boat named after his precious wife & a 1950 Morris Minor which was well known around Penrith. Arriving at my brother's address in Brisbane & seeing Terry's ...

Excellent service provided

Our 18ft Bayliner boat was picked up by Terry at Jindabyne and delivered to us at Stanthorpe. Terry provided excellent transport of our boat and showed how much he cared in what he transports. Uship has been an excellent website to use and informative in selecting the right transport company. I would definately use Uship again and Terry's transport service.

boat transport

Brian towed my five metre runabout from Brisbane to perth without a problem. Will recommend him and u ship totally.

485 Campion Bowrider

Transported boat from QLD to Adelaide, Picked up earlier than expected and arrived exactly as planned, Thanks Dianne and Kyle,

Some confusion

Two examples were: (1) When a couple of bids came in, right back at the start, they were then withdreawn for no apparent reason. One3 was then reinstated, and then withdrawn again, only to be replaced by a lower bid. I know this is bidders activity, but it was certainly confusing to a newby. (2)When I accepted a bid, I was suddenly cut off from uShip communications. There was no handover to the ...

Delivery from Melbourne to Bundaberg of a 22 ft Shark Cat

I could not speak highly enough of these guys. I was kept in the loop at all times and we did have a couple of little hiccups which were no fault of DK Interstate but they were handled with absolute professionalism. Thanks Dennis and Shareen, it has been a pleasure doing business with you.

Great experience in transporting my new boat

I found uShip on the internet whist waiting for the "big" companies to come back to me with quotes and time frames for delivery of our newly purchased boat. What a find! I am still waiting on a quote from 3 major companies a week down the track, and I have my boat ready to put on the water! I received several quotes from uShip really quickly, and decided to go with Driving4. Rodney was in const ...

Very Happy

Very satisfied with the overall experience right from booking the transport, through to communication during and up until delivery was made.

Boat Delivery

Transport boat from Airlie Beach Qld to Lake Macquarie, towed by 4x4.Service and delivery was excellent. Whole uShip experience was worthwhile both financially and service wise.

Worry Free Shipment

We purchased a high performance trailer/sailor that was located in Sydney. The seller offered to deliver the boat in Ceduna, SA. I needed to then have the boat collected in Ceduna and delivered to Perth. I posted the shipping requirement on UShip for either towed or flatbed. I had learned about UShip from the TV show in the USA. The bidding process was efficient and provided several cost effe ...


From reading hundreds of reviews online about the uShip website I was quite guarded about what to expect. Even when I started getting bids I had a sinking feeling that the quotes I was getting were too good to be true. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is an excellent website and I have no idea why there aren't thousands more like it for other products (airfares, buses, holidays, ANYTH ...

Boat transport Victoria to Perth

I was interested in buying a boat interstate but had never used a transport company before. A friend of mine told me about uShip so I went online and investigated. It turned out to be quite simple and would do it again. I would just be weary of service providers with good feedback as they think they can charge a lot more due to their reputation. I used a new transporter who was a lot more price co ...

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!

Boat Freight

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

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.

Great experiance
