Good value in shipping electronics manufacturing equipment

I purchased a used machine which is quite large from a previous owner. It was 10' long, and about 2000lbs, making it more difficult to transfer than just a skid. I was looking for a direct pickup and deliver by one carrier/one truck so it would not be handled, and thus need a $1000.00 crating charge. I was patient on the dates/schedule, but the shipper kept me informed of her location and progres ...

Shipping my Lathe

Jackie Dempere was my shipper to get my lathe from California to Ontario. This was my first time shipping an item. Jackie was very helpful and accomodating.

excellent shipping experience

Uship is a fantastic way to ship. Especially for small or new companies, where shipping costs are hurting the budgets. was excellent in quick pick up and reasonable price. saved a 150.00 I will use uship all the time. we ship water heaters light but bulky. This is the service for us.

Shipping my machine

the first truck cancelled out, but my shipper said they would still do it for the same price. The next ruck hauled it to the Canadian border, then was not allowd into Canada, so that company had to send a another driver, so it took a little longer to get here, but best of all is that it was all taken care of and I did not need to be chasing it around.

smooth transaction

I purchased a mixer from a canadian ebayer. According to the listing on ebay .The mixer weight 450lbs. I felt the weight was incorrect and added 300 extra pound to 700lbs.When the mixer was pick up,The shipping company scale read 1820lbs.I was way off and the canadian .The mixer was a better deal than expected.The glentleman that was the winning uship quote winner was on my side, trying to dispute ...

Shipped unusual equipment - they handled it fine!

Good service. Kept in touch so I always knew what was going on. Was able to work with me through customs, etc. Product arrived on time, trucker was friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend provider and use the service again.

Complex Shipment

This was my first use of U SHIP. I normally use Transport Brokers. This had a short fuse and a low area for service. The process worked great at a fair price and the shipment made it right where it needed to get to including a complicated border crossing. I will absolutely become a U Ship user in the future.

Auction sale

Went to the sale in my Jetta car. Bought two grapples. No room in car for grapples. How do you get grapples home? Get in my truck drive 15 hours or use uShip? Cost about the same as fuel for my truck! Saved me a day


I have used uShip a few times and have been very happy with the great quotes and service providers that I have hired. I ship paintings, which need special attention, but have always paid great prices. Saved hundreds of dollars.

3 Mowers

Agreed on price. Picked up on time loaded and secured well, called 2 hours our to confirm delivery. Excellent

Shipping of service body

My whole U-Ship experience was quite easy. I managed to find a transport service that made the whole thing even better. I was moving a removable service body from Arizona to Alberta and of course it was not a normal size pallet. Mark made things so easy. His attitude and service level is beyond reproach. I would have no issues with using U-Ship again. Jim W Alberta Canada

Cold days in Buffalo

I was on my way to deliver this fireplace insert myself to Mississauga,Canada and they wouldn't let me cross the boarder. Not having extra money for a room i slept 2 nights in my van in 15* weather and also the heat in the van didn't work .U- Ship gave me a way to resolve my problem and the agent was fast and efficient in finding me a carrier and the price didn't take too much from what my custom ...

uShip experience

It was a great pleasure doing business with you. Looking forword to do it again in the future! Thank you Jack

Worked great and saved me a very long drive and alot more expense

I bought a set of cultivators from 3300kms away from where I live and was able to get them home without too much expense

Large box delivered from AB to ON

A large box was delivered by the shipper as promised. No problems. They did exactly what was promised.

Shipment to Canada

They were the least expensive (they are shipping brokers). I had to do quite a bit of phoning to get updates and PRO numbers and other information pertaining to the transport of the shipment. I would consider using them again.

Pleasantly surprised with how easy this was

After seeing Shipping Wars on TV, I thought what the hell, let's try this. It works, and it works very well. How cool is that?

Sausage stuffer shipment

1st time using UShip. This is the best tool available that I have come across. Freight charges ended up being one quarter of the normal cost. Awsome

Great first time experience

When my regular freight broker quoted me a simple job between provinces I almost dropped my purchase. I had seen uShip on Shipping Wars so decided to try it. While I found that the sign-up process took a little while, I appreciated the detail they asked for in order to get a proper quote. The bidding was great and the communication was fantastic. Got an amazing price on the shipment and I couldn't ...

First time user

As a first time user I was a little skepticle, but that quickly changed to impressed. The whole process was easy and simple and enjoyed every part of it. I'd gladly recommend the service to anybody and will be using it again. I know that I saved money and the whole pickup and drop off was done within 24hrs of accepting a bid. The shipping company Tricor was also great...Thanks to everyone invo ...

Smooth Sailing

The booking was easy and everything went really smooth.It's nice to know that there are still great carrier out there.

Table saw on wedding day

I booked this shipment a little late on my part and worried that my shipment would show up in the middle of my wedding but Derek was on time for pickup and ahead of schedule on delivery. Saved my but from getting kicked by an unhappy bride for buying a table saw 2 days before my wedding thanks derek

John Deere 420 Tractor

I purchased a JD 420 Tractor from a gentlemen in Connecticut and only heard about UShip after I'd won the tractor on Ebay. My brother in law told me about it, I was reluctant actually but now that I've been through my first successful shipment, I am totally impressed by how easy and professional it was. My tractor arrived on time, and it was exactly how it looked when it left Connecticut. My ...

Shipping AC and Tires

Had a great experience with sourcing different vendors and getting a variety of bids. The reviews were really helpful in choosing not only the cheapest but the best person for the job. Will definitely use this service again in the future.

audio speakers

It was great working with Stephane..The whole process from start to finish was handled with care and responsibility..Will highly recommend..

Great Experience shipping our MGO Panels

UShip is a great resource for our Company to access competitive freight quotes for new destinations.


i bought a machine that needed to be shipped from florida to ontario, iwas recommended to uship by a friend,i not only saved roughly 50% on shipping but received great service as well, thanks

EASY trucking

i had a load in edmonton needed it to grande prairie fast and CHEAP tricor did the job great work!!!!

My first u-ship experience

I purchased a commercial vacuum on ebay. I had no idea how to get it from Calgary to Toronto. I remembered watching shipping wars and logged into u-ship. Overall I had a great experience and would recommend u-ship to others. My only advice to u-ship is this: when I logged in with my pc I had to lower my security settings to its lowest level to do business there. This was a cookie based problem ...

Antique Service Station Memorbilia

They were very prompt and thorough.Had a problem with shipment address what was my fault.Without even asking Mike called and with no hesitation fixed the issue.They were on time with great communication and all the product was in great shape.Thanks to Mike & Cora i would be happy to use their services again and highly ...

First time using Uship

Being this was the first time we had used uShip we were unclear as to how this would work out. Our service was great! We were well informed and the shipment arrived safe and sound. The shipper was very personable and honest with his bids. Thanks again for the service you provided. Would definitely use this service again.


Richard Shamblin is excellent to deal with. Very polite and quickly responds to any questions or concerns. Shipment arrived with no problems.


Shipping goods from an area that is unknown can be tough. UShip is a great way to link with shipping companies.

Tall Trees

My shipment was larger than the shipper indicated to me. Tall Trees Logististics were great through the entire experience. They made everything so easy for me.

Car front clip

Tall tree logistics put a bid on my shipment and after i verified with their feedback decided to go with them and very happy i did so , thank you tall trees logistics.

Good service

It's the second time I'm using USHIP, I thing the transportor should check more the description on the shipping before bitting. But I'll still using the service but with precaution. Thanks

last minute!!! No problem!!!

I requested a shipment and the same day he agreed on a time frame and price and by the next morning it was delivered on my door step great service!!!

International shipment from East to West

I purchased an attachment in Ohio and needed it brought to BC. I advertised under UShip for about one week until I found my price. Online confirmation and payment were easy. TLM worked it into a load and delivered to my door (instead of holding for pickup) voluntarily. Their pricing was very affordable. I would recommend this service to anyone with LTL freight. Thanx UShip and TLM! Until ne ...

Shipment from China

This is my second time using UShip I had a shipment was coming from china, had to get pricing from uship 2-3 months in advance. Dealing with the exporter from china information was very limited on dates of arrival. more like a 2 to 3 week window. Kieth who was my transport company here, was very patient in regards to my time table and was notified just days before product arrived in Mon ...

on time shipment

Carrier promised delivery within three days, and if will not be delivered within this period shipping will be free ... shipment came after three weeks, but there was no return of fees. However I'm really happy...the parcel reached me and it was in good condition! :o) I'm just sad because he promised me a pie in the sky. :o(

Storage tent

U ship is easy to use. Put my shipment up for auction had 5 bids and around my price range. Booked job and received product, shipping company was great to deal with and on time. I have used u ship 3 times so far and every time has been good.

6000lb tile from Toronto to cottage near Lakefield

Steve is a very nice, kind guy, easy to communicate with. We set a timetable and discussed some options. Steve was very punctual and pickup the tile load as discussed. The transport went very smooth, we got at the cottage site in time. Steve helped me unload the tile (he didn't have to). Wat else to say, exceptional service, highly recommended service provider.

Great service

After using uShip for the first time, I am impressed with the auction style of securing shipments. I have even recommended this method of securing freight to my brother in-law who has now used this service to move his vehicle from Ontario to Alberta. I would recommend this web site to anyone looking to get a good price on freight quotes.

Excellent web-page

at the beginning, I found unfriendly the web-page but with a little bit clicking here there I was able to understand how everything work. Thanks a lot

Great experience!

First time with Uship - and very happy! Shipper was fast, very great at communicating - and delivered the day after I first placed my shipment. Excellent.

Great experience

After being left high and dry by an auction company, I stumbled upon uShip. Things could not have gone better! I would not hesitate to use this system again.

Best experience ever for a shipment

Got this strapping machine that needed to be moved and i could not move it myself, so found a great reliable shipper on uship, got a good deal for my shipment and and found a good solid carrier for all my next shipments. If i found this great of a carrier so can you. dont underestimate beginners and don't just look out for the cheapest price.

Shipping Container with fuel tank inside

Had a great price, was able to deliver it on time, and I could always email or call him with any questions that arose. Would use jeragen again without any hesitation.

Great Experience

Only 2nd time using... but both have been perfect. Owner and Driver easy to get hold of, and I had no problems to report of any kind. Absolutely Perfect.

First time using overseas shipping

It's always a gamble when you buy stuff sight unseen, but we developed a trusting relationship with the seller and agreed on a fair price. Shipping was next, we didn't know anyone or have any contacts in that arena so we posted a bid for a shipper and the entire thing worked out great. Initially we were nervous but it all worked out well in the end. Thanks,
