Great Job!

PEIBESTWAY carried my belongings across Canada. They packed carefully, which was a challenge because the boxes were all different sizes, and mostly rather small because I packed alone and could not lift big boxes on my own. This meant loading and unloading were very time-consuming. At the end, they helped me load everything carefully into a rented van, as I finished the ferry trips to the isla ...

2 bedroom house contents and vehicle.

My daughter and her husband moved to Exshaw AB. from La Salle ON. and left all their posessions behind until they solidified their jobs out there. A freind of mine shipped a boat from Florida to Detroit using Uship and was very satisfied with the transaction. So I decided to give it a try. My daughter saved a lot of money doing this move through Uship. The shipping conpany "PEIBESTWAY" were very ...

A Relieved Bride-to-be!

In addition to the hassles of planning a wedding, I had to find a way to ship my things and a beautiful bedroom suite built by my fiance's father from one end of the country to the other. PEI Bestway Movers more than met my expectations! Not only was the price affordable, the service was excellent. They arrived at the pick-up and delivery locations as promised, frequent contact was made and inf ...

Great experience with cross-country move

The shipper did an excellent job for us, getting all our personal belongings and our car across the country on a tight schedule. Service was very personal as well as professional, and it really seems like she cared. I would be willing to act as a reference for her for any job.

Great service with our home furniture!

We, because of financial problems, had to relocate from Alberta, Canada, all the way to Nova Scotia, Canada. When I listed the maximum bid of $3000, the only person to contact me was jdempere who asked why I put such a low bid on the move. When I explained our circumstances, she offered me that bid!!!!! She was fantastic! Our furniture was delivered in record time, and saved us an enormous ...

Awesome experience!

I heard about uship from a friend, he new I was in a dire situation and needed to move out of province with a very limited amount of money. Even though I was scepticle of uship I decided it couldn't hurt to list the shipment here and see what offers I would get. Needless to say I was more than happy with the offer, uship was so easy to use, the service provider was amazing, and the entire process ...

Highly recommend

I needed to ship personal belonging from Edmonton to Niagara Falls. Jeff was great, accomodating and very professional. Would highly recommend to all my friends and family for their shipping needs.

moved from Vancouver, BC CANADA to Columbus, Ohio

I am a Canadian who married an American and then decided to move. I moved from Vancouver British Columbia CANADA to Columbus Ohio. Yes, there was a lot of things to consider. First, there is a lot of paperwork to complete. A complete manifest of my things, the Customs forms, and then supporting documentation. Second, Immigration takes a lot of money and so I needed to find someone who was re ...

Cross-country move.

Previously residing in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, I decided to leave the prairies and relocate myself to Montreal, Quebec, which has always been my favorite city in Canada. Unfortunately this move looked like it was going to be a lot more expensive than I had anticipated. Luckily, I came across uShip, I placed a request and within days I had a bid that was over $300.00 CAD cheaper than the cheapest ...

Moving from Moncton NB

I'm a single guy and I wanted to move my stuff from the East Coast to Southern Ontario. After looking at various options (Uhaul, private movers, etc.) I realized that the cost was not only prohibitive but also wasteful. With the few things that I have I could not justify hiring an entire moving crew or spending a ridiculous amount of money on a rental vehicle; thus, I had a dilemma on my hands. ...

Great experience

Was sick of high quotes from movers, googled to see if move-bidding was available and voila! Happy to have found this site & been recommending it to friends.

Great Experience!

I'll admit that I was a little hesitant at first but I absolutely LOVED uship. I ended up saving a lot of money and the service was courteous and much easier for me in the long run since labor was included (and blanket wrap!). Thank you so much!


I needed to move from Ontario to New Brunswick and had to find as economical a means to do this as possible. Uship allowed my to entertain propositions from many truckers and choose the best for me. I had some concerns with communications with both uship and the trucker I chose, but overall was satisfied with both services.


What a fantastic and time saving experience from beginning to end. Will definitely use again - saved me a ton of money!!

West Coast to the Prairies....

Eoan was amazing and thourough and made this one of the best moving experiences ever....totally recommend ecmoving!

Entire home move Toronto to Calgary

A friend of mine recommended uShip and he was right. Great service and great experience. Mark and Peter were awesome. Onroute moved our home contents from Toronto to Calgary including our Mini Cooper in record time and with no damage to anything. If I every have to do a move back to Toronto I will call Mark and the Onroute team. Thanks.

Moving From NB to Alberta

I wasnt sure how my experience was going to go at first. I was shipping all my things from New Brunswick to Alberta... and I saved 1000+ dealing with UShip. The site was so easy to use and the people i personally dealt with were fantastic. I would recommend Uship to everyone and have already :)

Great service shipping my household goods

I was moving from London ON to Wymark SK. With not much planning I needed a reliable, feasible, and quick way of getting my things from there to here! I had a good handful of boxes, a two, two stand up speakers, and two smaller objects to ship. Everyone I had gone to for quotes was way over my price limit. A company told me to click the Uship link they had posted on their website that they refer p ...

My uShip experience

I'm a seasoned ebay-er and this was kind of on the same principal. I tentatively ventured into the whole bidding aspect, not certain what to expect, but was met with excellent dealings from all the parties who replied to my ad to ship my 2 bedroom household items from AB to BC. I had the good fortune to connect with Rob of DeWinton Transport who not only was deadheading to the Island from AB bu ...

Moving out of town

When I got a job and had to move, I didn't have a lot of time, only two weeks to organize everything. After doing a search, I found uShip, and thought I'd give it a try, thinking "what have I got to lose?" I received a quote from a moving company where I lived, and was quoted approximately $1,000. I really couldn't afford to spend that much, so thought I would see what kind of response I would ...

Office Move

Scott was incredibly helpful and truly made our experience smooth and worry free. We will use this service and Scott again! Barbara W


Im certainly glad i found uship i got my household belongings delivered from calgary to toronto well below regular shipping price, since i was able to state what i can afford and bidders knew this from the offset. I got prompt and reliable service i would definitely recommend.

Moved from Ontario to Alberta

Wow, Great job guys! Communication and service was awesome. Helped move my funiture into my apartment.I would recommend using your company "Blue Sky" to everyone.. Thank you for everything..Cheers Alicia (=

Smoothest move ever!

Moving my stuff from Saint John to Hamilton was a breeze! About 45 boxes of assorted household things (tools, clothes, books, dishes, etc.) was all I needed moved, but I got a fair price ($400 less than my best Yellow Pages quote) and flawless service. uShip saved my butt, for sure. I had my first question regarding my shipment within minutes of creating the listing, and my first bid within two ho ...

House move

My family and I were originally going to move out east, then due to circumstance we ended up getting our 1st house up north. The mover that accepted our order had no problem adjusting to our needs. The mover Uship connected us to was fantastic, uship is a excellent resource.

GREAT JOB - furniture moving

GREAT JOB! My family and I have worked with this company before and would gladly do so again! Punctual, professional and friendly movers :) Moved a few big items from my house to my condo. No damage to my furniture and no damage to my new floors! Uship made the transaction easy and convenient. Second time using the website, would definitely use it again! and especially EmpireMoving ...

Shipping 5 large containers

Shipping 5 large plastic containers from Toronto to Vancouver. Containers were picked up and delivered door to door for very reasonable cost. Unfortunately one of the containers was damaged at some point but nothing was lost. I saved approximately $1200 and would use u-ship again

Shipment of Dining Table and Chairs

I had to ship a dining table that belonged to my Mother, who was moving into a condo and did not have room for it. She lives in Ottawa and I live in Calgary and I got three other estimates before using uShip. The mover was excellent to deal with and he kept in touch with me all through the move. I was able to ship the table and chairs for a reasonable cost, and they arrived in perfect condition ...


We had our goods moved by a fantastic contractor in a better than timely fashion. Our expectations were exceeded.

Moving a construction trailer

I had bought a Construction trailer in quebec and needed to move it about 3HRS away. I did a U-ship quote and promptly received a quote from Dubuc and Lefevbre. I accepted the quote and we spoke on the phone. They showed up at the pick up site on time and quickly had my trailer moving to the new site. When we arrived at the site, they spent alot of time helping me set it up and getting it ready ...

Great shipping experience

We had to move my Late Father`s condo furniture across country upon it`s sale. The goods were of great sentimental value and the shipment arrived on time and in great condition. We saved not only money but could find someone that could work within our strict time criteria which was all so important! We would definitely use u-ship again.

great experience

We encountered a few difficulties with our move and John was very helpful/ patient, and assisted in helping us find a solution even though it created a delay for him. He provided great service and our overall experience was excellent.

Pleasant Surprise

Uship came through big time and I approached the site with trepidation not sure if it would be good idea to go this route just to save some money. I am sure the end result depends on who you book, but I felt confident booking Sunshine Acres after reading their many positive reviews. The money savings was significant verses shipping the same number of boxes using Fed EX or Canada Post. 6 tightly p ...

Theft of goods

Items have gone missing in transit as we refused to pay them in full while on the road somewhere. Our contract was to pay COD once delivery completed.


Thank you to Rob (Dewintransport) for delivering our stuff. I know he had a few delays due to the weather and we where not able to get our stuff by Christmas as we first had hoped, but we did get it before New Years and even though I underestimated the number of boxes we had in storage, he still managed to get them all to us. Will definitely be using Rob again in the future. Happy New Year!!!

Wouldn't Hesitate to use Dewinton again.

Inherited an antique radio that was large, heavy and across the country. Dewinton picked up radio when they were in the area, and it was delivered within the week. Fast, friendly, professional, a great overall experience. A plug on the radio was damaged and Rob found a replacement, and offered to deliver it within the week. Excellent Service!

Great way to ship furniture

I needed to ship some office equipment from Winnipeg to Vancouver. I wasn't sure how to do it. I found uship online and tried it. It worked really well. I found somebody who was willing to ship within my budget, and they did an excellent job of delivery my goods. I was very happy with the overall experience.

Quebec to Alberta

My fiance is moving to Alberta from Montreal to be with me and we needed a cost effective way to move her personal belongings. Being a fan of Shipping Wars I decided to try uShip out. We saved at least $400 over conventional movers that we priced. A tip to share is we itemized everything (how many boxes etc) and weighed everything so we could post a total net weight and how many pieces we had to s ...

Build upon the trust

It's the first time I put information on uShip. I got a quick response from Dave. After a few short messages, I believe Dave very much. Dave did help in the way I was expecting. I appreciate it.

First Shipment on uShip

I had a bed i had to move to my place in Mississauga so decided to use the app I've seen on the A&E TV show "Shipping Wars". Robert @ Sauve Logistics won my bid and did an excellent job of communicating and completing the job at hand. I would recommend this site for anyone needing moving services especially college students or small apartment dwellers. I will be consulting uShip for al ...

great experience with my move across the country

saw the show shipping wars and thought of the site when i had to move across country. was skeptical at first but all worked out well. would definitely recommend. i saved quite a bit using uship and would recommend reading feedback on shippers

2 Bedroom Move

We were looking to move a small 2 bedroom move. We did not want to take large furniture and only needed to move our bedroom and other items from the house. Alex was the winning bid for our move. He called me within 1 hour to let me know that all was fine with the shipment and that he would be there. He showed up and we loaded the truck so that everything was ready to go. He placed care in making s ...
