Collection of wall tiles

My first experience with uShip as i normally use another provider...the fact that you can put the price in that you are prepared to pay is great. Simon agreed to my price and when i checked he had no feedback but never the less we all have to start somewhere and i am glad i did.He showed great communication and punctuality. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the company or Simon

Uship recommendation

For anyone unsure about whether to use Uship, all I can say is I've now done so three times. Each time I've been really impressed with the competitiveness of the quotes and the quality of the service I've received.

Delivered rabbit hutch

Excellent service and lovely people! Highly recommend! Can't fault anything! Kept in touch and delivered before the time too!

Excellent, a very safe and friendly service.

I am really pleased with my experience with Uship. I have now had 2 deliveries now and both have gone smoothly and both drivers have been very friendly and reliable. I can't fault either. Overall i am pretty impressed, I can now consider ebay items countrywide because I know that i can arrange collecting them when they were previously too far to consider myself. Out of interest, I was recommend ...

Delivery of vintage cooker genuine

The 1st service provider, with who I accepted a quote from was a new member and was not contactable, I believe that uship needs to verify that new members are contactable as I had to relist the job. However another member gave a competitive quote and provided a very good service. I shall certainly use this website in the future as I have saved money by doing so this time!

Using Uship

I have used UShip on many occasions and would not hesitate in recommending them. Great idea, great website!

Excellent Service

Shipped grandfather clocks from various locations, Mr. Pratt accommodated all sellers differences, requirements, modes ...etc to fulfill my needs Thank you

Toilet basin & cistern

Proved convenient, quick & less at risk of damage than a parcel service. Parcel service might cost less, but is not practical for fragile items. Personal collection (500 mile round trip) would be more costly than U-Ship. All in all, recommended. will use again.

Sofa Garnitur

√ersand (Ebay Verkauf) Unkompliziert Zügig Zuverlässig Günstig Schneller Liefertermin Zusage Akkurat Gerne wieder Vielen Dank

Plant bought on ebay.

None of the regular carriers wanted to move a plant. U ship put me in touch with Tony and it was an excellent experience. I would definately use again x

Collect and deliver fridge freezer bought on eBay

Buying large heavy or fragile items on eBay when it's a buyer collect item is always a worry. This was a great buy from a very nice seller and using uShip made the process of getting this large american fridge freezer 104 miles very simple and straight forward. The company we gave the job too could not have been more helpful, a couple of really lovely guys. We'll definately use both uShip and ...

Good service

The collection was fast, and he even packaged the item as the seller did not bother. It was delivered quickly and well and the driver is a very friendly nice person. Would definitely recommend this courier to anyone.

Range Cooker

Astra Move offer a fantastic professional service. Our range cooker was delivered in excellent condition and Astra Move went the extra mile to help us situate it. Fantastic !!

Below average service

My experience with Uship was terrible, the 1st courier wanted cash upfront, and refused to take paypal so my money was covered, then he cancelled the night before, meaning myself and the supplier both had wasted time, The next courier was the cheapest by £16 but communication was terrible and i was about to call the police about my delivery being stolen, i asked Uship to contact the courier who t ...

Stair lift

I used U ship to organize the shipment of a stairlift from Cornwall to Dorset. I found the web site very easy to use and received a good quote from a carrier within 1 hour on a Sunday evening. I had a good idea of what sort of price to accept as I have shipped heavy items before and the Uship price estimator was pretty well bang on. I accepted the quote and the goods were picked up next day and ...

A no problem delivery of a heavy kitchen range

I bought a kitchen range on EBay and wondered how on earth I would get it delivered.Fortunately a friend told me about uShip. From that moment onward everything went smoothly and I have but praise for the service given by Astramove. I will certainly use uShip again and recommend it. The only thing : if my friend had not told me about uShip, where was it advertised on EBay? how could I have known ...

Perfect delivery twice

Second time I've used us hip and this time was as good as the first. I had a scooter delivered and then a surfboard delivered. Both times the driver answered all,my calls and also rang me. Couldnt have been better service, thankyou

Heavy fire place

I had to hire a packing service to ferry across the state of Florida a vintage fireplace , which required a lot of care . I am very satisfied with the service.

full home sauna shipped

Very professional company, good communication from the start of bid placed. The driver Brian was very polite, friendly and helpful. Goods arrived on time and intact. Very happy with the service will definitely use again if needed. Recommend this company to anyone who needs to ship anything.


I was looking to arrange to collect an heavy item all the offer were very high With uship I had the item in 2 days and paid 3 time less I will use again for sure

Return of a faulty ebay item

Would recommend this site purely down to Tim and his company. I have had an awful experience with an ebayer, of which I had to return a large digital fruit machine. Nothing they said or did was acceptable and having to return was a pain and time consuming. Tim made this return, easy, effortless and genuinely easy. Top man, top company and a credit to have on uship. I will be using again and they ...


Very good contact by email and then by phone with me and the seller. Delivered goods ahead of time and safely up a steep path and steps to our property which is difficult to find !. Very good price for service and very pleasant/hard working blokes. Delighted with the whole process and hope to be using services again when needed. Many thanks indeed.


Ebay purchase but seller wouldn't post lawn mower so I used uship, entered details on site had a good quote within 8 hours was delivered 2 days later with no problems so easy to use


i would think its fair to be contacted for collection time - and we had no idea when the courier would turn up,,,, also delivery time was not explained and the driver turned up at 23.15 hrs which was quite late

Fantastic experience

Martin was a pleasure to do business with. Even though the day didn't pan out as he had hoped due to traffic delays. He kept both ends informed, and we cannot fault him at all. Even arriving at 11pm to deliver the item.

power plate

i had a power plate delivered from milton keynes to my house in kent the guy who done the job paul was very helpful and very friendly.

Excellent service

I bought goods from London (ebay) on Saturday and they have already been delivered on Monday morning safely. I was initially nervous and PaulAndrew hasn't got any reviews, but was reassured to accept the quote by the excellent communications. Communications remained excellent, the goods were carefully handled, he was also punctual and courteous. Full marks. I would use again myself, an ...

Pick up and delivery of american dryer from e-bay.

Decided to try U Ship after buying a large appliance some distance away from us. The courier I used took all the headache out of everything he arranged pick up and delivered also when arranged kept me up to date with the delivery throughout. Would recommend this service to anyone you might think you can save money by doing it all yourself but really you don't. Very pleased cu ...

fridge freezer

bought fridge freezer in London and had it delivered to Devon. No issues arose and the company were very good to deal with. Many thank's for a good service.


I had being trying the get the boiler 255kg moved for me but I came up against problems due to weight. Two couriers tried and failed!! Martin from astrmove took on the job , completed the move within hrs , excellent service throughout ..thanks Martin..


Needed it collected one day, but delivery the next, so he (stas) accommodated this and would use service again for both uship and also Stas.

My crystal lamps

I was a little anxious when I filled out the details because I was not familiar with uship at all. I had purchased 2 crystal bedside lamps on ebay and the seller would not pack them up for me so I was uncertain as to whether they would arrive safely. I found uship so easy to do, especially when I did not know anything about uship at all. The quotes came in and I chose the one that communicated wit ...

collected my trike

My first use of U-ship, I had only seen them in America on the Sky programme. The courier collected my trike (always wanted one!) from the e-bay seller and delivered it safely.

Easy garage door delivery

I was able to have the garage door delivered for much less than it would have cost me to hire a vehicle/trailer and collect it myself, and without taking up my time.

Ebay win delivery

Purchased a large item off Ebay and tries various other courier service providers for quotes but Uship lets you set your own price that you would like to pay and couriers then get back to you if willing to do the job at that price!!!! I don't know of any other place that offers this service!

My First Time Using Uship

I had never used this service before and was a bit apprehensive, it seems odd listing an item you were hoping to win off ebay and seeing others bid on collecting it but with the buggy being in Liverpool and weighing over 20kg and me being in the midlands it had to be worth a punt before a long drive with 2 small children. I had to relist the details three times as I didn't win the item as quick as ...

First Uship Order

I only used Uship as it seemed a more cost effective use of my time in avoiding a round trip of 5 hours. The whole process is pain free and I used the Iphone app to book the bid I was happy with. I don't think I went with the cheapest bid, it was the highest feedback in the lower bids that I chose. All in all, I will use uship again if I buy anything large/over 2 hours away as after calcula ...

Excelente experiencia

Se acabaron los problemas de tener un artículo a miles de kilómetros y querer transportarlo. Ya no hay que tratar con compañías, departamentos de recogida, de atención al cliente... uShip es la clave. Es un bien para la humanidad. El transportista que se encargó de mi envío ha sido muy profesional. Perfecto

Cooker from Yorkshire to North Scotland

All very positive. We got 3 quotes, found one who went the extra mile and our cooker arrived 2 days later. Had not used the service before but would definitely do so again.

Excellent service

The whole Uship experience was painless and efficient. defo recommend and use in the furuture if all couriers are as good as the guy I had.

First Experience

We got off to a bad start with our u ship experience as our first courier we booked let us down but after relisting we managed to get another courier who communicated with us and collected and delivered when he said he would so the experience was saved. Thank you Scottsrus.

Great experience

Uship is an Excellent Service. Had a USA Top Loading washing machine (heavy)delivered from Nottingham to Lancashire. Uship website was very easy to use. Not sure how much I saved compared to going outside Uship as I did not need to as it was that easy. Delivery guy was EXCELLENT!!! Uship will always be my stop when needing anything delivered.

Great experience shipping my pinball

Im so glad I watched the tv show or I would have never used this service. Great all around experience. Thank you


The moving of some musical instruments requires specialist handling. Scott knows how to do this and is one of the most careful couriers in UK. An excellent service provider in every way.


Ankündigung bei Lieferung; Telefon mit Ehefrau die vom Kauf ihres Mannes nichts wußte. Angekündigt wurde ein Sperrguttaxi, die Hausdame entgegnet "ich habe kein Taxi bestellt" usw. :-)....aber ihr Mann "der ist noch nicht da, ich habe kein Taxi bestellt"

Tandem bike

No problem receiving my bike from my chosen courier, Uship is a good way to make sure you get a reliable courier who has had provided a good service to other people. Regards Magswillow

transport tables et chaises

Je re décore l'appartement de ma mère et je n'ai pas de véhicule, vivant à Paris. Uship est une bonne solution pour ramener les differents objets que j'achète aux 4 coins de la région.

Great service

1st time using UShip and found everything very simple. Very impressed with the speed of service from the carrier we chose and happy that they took PayPal as we were unable to be at either collection or delivery address. Would use again and recommend.

Primer envio

Ha sido la primera ver que he utilizado este servicio y ha funcionado a la perfección. La conexión con ebay es perfecta para dar confianza y que tengan información completa del material a enviar.

Aga saga

I was very anxious about the delivery of my Aga and actually worried if the courier was a bit too cheap! But they answered all my questions and promised a blanket wrap service. As soon as I accepted bid they rang to arrange times, picked up and delivered on time and was extremely heavy. Unfortunately the Aga wasn't as described and is going back! But thankfully I didn't pay much for delivery! Grea ...
