It saved me a lot of time and phone calls trying to find a shipper that would haul from Canada to the states at a fair price. Great service.

Shipment of our John Deere Loader by ltsInc

Our shipper did an excellent job. We put severe time constraints on him because our equipment needed to be moved in less than a week (more like 3 days). He was able to pick it up when we needed. Also, the equipment had a bad tire. He stop and had it repaired. Then he got down the road less than 50 miles and another tire had a blow out. He had that one repaired and took it all in stride. He ...

Even though the specs of the macine as provided by Ritchie Bros Auctioneers were incorrect in 3 areas ultimately affecting the necessary permits required to transport our Hitachi ZX450LC-3, American Hauling was able to stay with the machine, making alternate arrangments as necessary to ensure my product was delivered. Cheers

Old Cat 12 Grader

The old Cat 12 sat on the side of a steep mountain for more than 20 years, was quite a job getting it down to the flattest spot we could find to load it up. I contacted several local trucking companies, but no one would give me a "set price" quote to haul it for me. I turned to U-ship. I immediately began receiving quotes. In a short time, I agreed to a reasonable quote from a most excellent t ...


I shipped a backhoe that I purchased in the US and had to deliver to Canada. The Uship site was very easy to navigate and was able to help me find a shipper immediately.

Overall we learned a lot about customs and how interesting things can get whe ...

I received bids/estimates for the cost to ship and this helped me to know whether to purchase the tractor or not ...

Shipping 416C backhoe St Louis, MO to Brighton, Ontario

Shipped a Cat backhoe from St Louis MO to Brighton, Ont. U-ship provided a convienient way to have a number of bids on the shipment. I found it frustrating as a one time customer to try to find a shipping company that had easy references to read. The whole system worked well for me. Abacus truckline got the bid and they were good to work with.
