Pallet from Maine to Ontario - piece of cake!

Amazing experience and price shipping boxes!

We were shipping 8 boxes of personal effects from Jersey City NJ to Vancouver in Canada because we were temporarily moving there for school. We were quoted prices of approximately $1200 from other major providers. We were in Canada without any of our things and no where left to look. We found UShip and posted our shipment. Kevin from Dabent Transportation contacted us and gave us a different a ...

Jackie Dempere of Far and Wide Moving from Seattle rolled into our meeting place in North Dakota on time.

Great Experience Shipping New Appliances

Snow Ball Express did a great job shipping large, heavy kitchen appliances from Kalispell, MT to Calgary, AB. He picked up the appliances in Kalispell and provided on-time service to meet us at the Canadian / US Border (to clear Canadian customs) then he continued to transport the appliances and delivered them -- right into our home! He safely shipped the appliances in a new, enclosed auto ...

Finding a shipper for a very special one of a kind piece

I sold my cherished curved glass curio on Ebay. My buyer was is Canada and I live in Texas! What a challange; not only did I have to find a way to ship, there was also an issue with dealing with customs. I called UPS and FedEx ... well, their rates were enormous and I would have to creat the cabinet and bring it to them. My buyer would also have to pick it up at a local site. Impossible! As ...


I was shipping a fireplace that I bought off the internet to my cottage in PEI. I used uship to find someone to pick up the fireplace from the person I bought it from and take it to PEI. I didn't need to go all the way to Belleville just to ship it out east. Uship saved me a long trip for nothing and saved me a good deal of money. I'll use this service anytime I can. Thanks Erin

Found a very helpful lady trucker

My husband and I recently relocated to Canada. We had to have our personal goods shipped with very little notice or time to prepare and pack. I contacted several movers and had no response, but as soon as I placed an ad with uShip I had contact from a couple of truckers. We chose Far and Wide because Jackie, the proprietor, was willing to travel interstate to our remote rural location to pic ...

Antique Swedish Drafting Table from Canada to Texas

Jackie Dempere picked up my drafting table in Ottawa Canada, nursed it through customs, and delivered it to me in a timely fashion down in Texas. Great experience!

Kitchen Cabinets - US to Canada

We recently shipped a large set of kitchen cabinets from Ohio to Ontario through uShip. It was our first experience using uShip. Initially I was a little concerned about the difficulty of posting our shipment on the website but the site guided us through the process. The only fields that were a little tricky to fill in were those regarding weight of the combined cabinets. Within 48hrs we rece ...

Swim platform

I like u-ship. It's very easy and comfortable way to find shipper. I'll be use u-ship in future for sure. Thank's.

From Kentucky to Ontario

I had an opportunity to bid on a vintage 1920s Magic Chef gas stove on ebay. Only problem was trying to figure out how to ship from Louisville, KY to eastern Ontario, Canada. Seller suggested I try uship (too bad my email program sent her email to my junk mail box and I only read it a couple of hours before auction end). I frantically placed my shipping request on uship. Within a very short pe ...

shipment of 2 arcade cabinets

took my uship bid on the road for 2 arcade cabinets going from flordia to toronto. got here fast, helped me find a broker and everything was well wrapped in thick blackets. she had a cute dog with her, hehe.

Excellent Experience

She was a great lady to deal with. Highly efficient and professional service. She did both loading and unloading right on time highly professionally. Wrapped everything nicely. She went beyond extra mile in helping fixing our furniture as well. She became like a family to us. We definitely recommend her to others. Uship should give her more and more business. Best Wishes Fakhr & Rubab

Awesome handling of arcade machine.

Posted listing looking for a shipper from Oregon to Alberta. Got a response, and agreed to terms. Once item was in transit and before, there was constant communication, and the item arrived in good condition. Was overly pleased with service provided. Price was also below what I was planning to spend. Very happy overall.

Excellent shipping experience

Jackie, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable which made this whole experience a very positive one. The goods I was importing had belonged to my father so they mean a lot from a sentimental perspective. I am very pleased and thankful that Jackie made it possible to have these items in my home. Using the UShip site was also easy and helped make this experience a very positive one. I would not he ...

i had my shipment from california to lethbridge alberta, canada. it was great to have bidders and be able to ask and clarify things, even sometimes got educated n moving terminologies!I saved a lot compared to having direct contacts with shipping company-my service provider was weshipamerica, they did an incredible job in communication, promt service and to my suprise had ups pick my things from c ...

The best way to ship a smaller load

I had just a few items (some furniture and a few boxes) to ship from Montreal to Calgary. I looked into all of the options - UHaul, renting a container, using a courier, the bus, etc. The cheapest way I could find was more than double what it cost me through UShip. Because I didn't have a full load - even though I was prepared to drive a truck across Canada, it was going to cost more than the s ...

Antique Stoves travel across the Country.

I needed two fragile, antique railroad pot belly stoves moved from Ontario to Calgary. uShip was what I chose and I'm glad I did, since I got to pick who actually brought them. There were several bidders, prices were roughly similar and based on feedbacks, I made my choice and the stoves arrived in fine shape! My shipper was flexible and accommodating when some scheduling details went awry, and ...

Bedroom furniture shipped to naples, Florida

The story started off on USHIP. we began the bid process, but I did not take the others as LOU for some reason had the best feedbacks. We negotiated back and forth I think three times and then I accepted the bid. Everything else was easy - an email, followed by a telephone call, arrangements as to when to pick up the goods - very punctual and professional - all the goods were wrapped with blank ...

Thanks, uShip!

I had a wonderful experience with uShip. I received a number of bids to ship my oddly-shaped, heavy, unpalletized item from Canada to Texas. Couldn't have been easier.

cabinet from Sweden via Vancouver

Did not know how to get the cabinet from Vancouver. Uship gave us a solution and probaly saved $1000.

I needed to ship a auction purchased snowblower from Grande Prairie,Ab to Kamloops,BC.It would have cost me way to much time and money to go get it myself.So I listed it on u-ship.The service provider (phanson) did a very excellent job for a very modest price.The web site worked very well for me with no problems.I would use u-ship again. Thanks

Toronto to Fort Myers - Miscellanous Household Goods

I had about 20 boxes worth of stuff, about 1000 pounds total, to ship from Toronto to Fort Myers, FL. I looked at UPS, FedEx, Greyhound...all sorts of shippers and it looked like it would be at least $2500 to ship all of my stuff - way more than I wanted to or could pay. Somehow, I found out about Uship, researched it, and decided to use it. After I created my account, took a few pictures ...

2 Quads

Had 2 quads to come from Calgary to Abbotsford and had a shipper lined up who didn't show in Calgary on morning booked to pick up shipment.He then emailed that he had changed the date and wanted more money.Very bad experience.Then went to Uship and received bid from Lee , booked it and everything went smooth as could be.

Niche service

John offers a unique service in that he will move things that are too big for couriers, but are the kind of one-off jobs that the big companies aren't really intetrested in taking on.

Successful move from toronto to pei

we shipped our household goods from Toronto to PEI (our new home). uShip was discovered while i was sourcing out quotations. I found uShip was easy to use and the accepted bid price was much less than what other movers were charging. i saved about $2000. John gave such excellent service, he arrived promptly and helped us move our stuff. he took the time to make sure everything was done ver ...

couch transport

This was our first time using uShip to find transportation for some furniture and it was a very positive experience. We will certainly use them again if the need arises and definitely will recommend them to friends.

Silver Lining in Cross Country Move

My partner and I were moving from Vancouver to Toronto for graduate school. We'd been living in Vancouver for six years. In that time, we'd managed to create for ourselves an expansive library and an otherwise comfortable little domestic space. We are quite attached to our belongings, so we began sourcing movers and cost estimates. Well, I very quickly became disenchanted, having read horror stori ...

A very good experience

u-ship made it simple and easy to ship goods across Canada. Will use this service again when needed. Barry

Moving Furniture across the Country

This is a great site! I needed to move a furniture set across the country as inexpensively as possible. I posted my request on U-Ship and had a few offers within the week.

RTA Cabinets

RTA cabinets from the King of Prussia in the US to Ontario, Canada. Great experience getting my cabinets quickly and at a great price.

Shipment of Student Desk

This is the first time I used this service and I found it to be quite easy to use and what a great idea. We had a small student desk that we wanted to ship and found this site and gave it a try. The company we chose was amazing, the gentleman was very friendly and he took good care of the desk. I would recommend him and I would definately use USHIP again.

arcade games a success

the shipper packed the games in the 24 foot cube very accuratly and fit everythingg in when i didnt think it would work. arcade games are a challenge to move and for first timers, they did fine.

Very pleasent transaction shipping my temperpedic bed!!

I was shipping a king size temperpedic from Kelowna, BC to Surrey, BC. I purchased the mattress from Sears as a cash, as is sale, and so I wasn't able to ship it with the company. I was initially a little reserved about the uship process, but shortly after posting my shipment I started recievinh bids and it very quickly landed on the right price. I think I saved up to a couple of hundred dolla ...

furniture delivery to Edmonton

Ralph Price and U-Ship provided great service - cost wise and on time. We very much appreciate the service and my daughter in Edmonton received our "family heirloom" furniture which had a fair bit of sentimental value.

Shipping cabinet across country

When my mom died in Ontario, I picked one item from her estate--a curved-front china cabinet. The challenge was getting it to to my home in Surrey BC without paying more than the piece is worth. I posted the shipment with uShip and within a week received a very reasonable bid from DPR Trucking. Less than a week after that, the cabinet was safely in my home. Using uShip has been a suprising ...

great service for small loads. The auction fee was a surprise but fair.

Pu the items on for a bid, recieved 3 bids in 2 days. selected the shipper after reading the feedback. all went well. I would use this service again.

Excellent service shipping an old generaL store counter

We ordered a counter from eBay. Jackie came in with a great bid, provided excellent communication and delivered on time and as advertised.

Shipper was the best!

Allen not only shipped with cooperation, service and efficiency, but he went beyond. The item had a broken piece that I know absolutely was done by seller, NOT shipper. Yet this shipper still offered to pay the cost of repair which I refused because I know seller was at fault. I got paypal involved to force seller to pay for damage since he refused at first. But I will not forget that Allen our sh ...

Shipped my apartment full of stuff across Canada

I moved from Ontario to BC to upgrade my Paramedic skills and after a year And a half i decided to stay in BC. I thought it would be impossible to ship my things, cost effectively but this company made it possible! My things were shipped the day before my birthday, what a fantastic birthday gift! The gentleman who shipped my things was sulking and considerate. Personable company's like this just d ...

Moving to Calgary

Thought it was going to be a huge headache and a tonne of dough. This worked out so well. Happy I found Uship.



You were my only hope!

Having purchased a cute antique couch on eBay I found to my horror that having it shipped from an obscure little town, thousands of miles across the plains & the CAN-USA border, to my place, was not going to be easy. I'm lucky I heard about UShip because none of the big shippers wanted to help. Some said they had no-antiques policies (?maybe because the risk of breakage is too high?) and others on ...

shipping across country

had to send a large amount of boxes economically from ontario to ab.several companies responded to my auction on uship. i picked the guy with the best ratings and communication. everything was picked up on time and efficiently, and delivered in good time. very satisfied.

Easy furniture shipping

We recently used UShip and Classic Transport to move a kitchen table with 5 chairs, a coat rack and a small antique end table from Calgary AB to Victoria BC. We were very impressed with the entire process. We would definitely use their services again and would be happy to recommend both Uship and Classic Transport as a reliable, affordable alternative to traditional shipping methods. Thank you!
