Deliver mini digger

I purchased this machine over the internet so I had no idea what to expect and I was not familiar with the controls. Phil expertly unloaded the machine, drove on to my drive and explained the controls. First class service provider

Great Experience!

First time I used uShip, and it was worry-free. Wish all shippers were as good as the one I selected with uShip.

Great Services

The services were really good. The comunication were excellent. The transport delay a little bit but because of the weather, by the TALL TREES LOGISTICS everything goes really well. Stephane were very helpfull in all the process. Thanks for everything. Marlon Gomez Meneses.

Hitachi EX8 transport

Quote based on purchase. May bids $1000 to $5000 very confusing as a first time request. Received very helpful information from bidders, not uship. Was successful with a transport even though a different destination was established

John Deere 330C LC

Mike did an excellent job arranging everything and taking care of problems to get our excavator delivered!

Bobcat 323J

My husband purchased a mini-excavator from the Phoenix Ritchie Bros. auction, and needed to get it home soon. It took him a week to go through the contacts he'd had as far as shipping. RB Auction suggested UShip, so we then tried it for the first time. Tobias gave us a very reasonable bid for shipping, and once we accepted, he had the equipment to our front doorstep two days later. Great exper ...


The morning he arrived with the excavator it was a down right blizzard. After some harrowing moments making the tight corner he made it into the yard. The trailer is made to let down and drive eqipment off, but something in the air lines was frozen so had to drive the trackhoe carefully off the side, but it got the job done! The wind was ripping so it was a good feeling to see it on the gro ...

Excellent Excavator Experience

I purchased an excavator at Ritchie Bros, Nisku, posted the load at Uship that afternoon. I had 5 offers within an hour, selected the one with the most suitable price and equipment (removable gooseneck) that evening. It was picked up the next day, just after noon, the driver loaded it, and a bucket. It arrived safely, well secured, the next morning. The driver (Willy) was very professional, an ...

Komatsu Excavator Purchase Ritchie Bros Auction

We really liked the idea of U-Ship it made it easier to find a shipper by placing it out to bid without losts of phone calls our shipping experience with transporter had a few hurdles but not U-Ships fault we would use U-Ship again in the near future.

Got the job done

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

Shipping JD 200C LC Excavator

Purchased this machine from a auction in BC and had to get it shipped to Illinois. Heard about UShip, setup my account and found a reliable carrier to move my machine for a reasonable rate. This is a excellent service to have available and I will continue to use it.

Shipping problem solved

I purchased a mini excavator by bidding online at an action in Fort Worth, Texas. I needed the machine picked up and delivered 250 miles to my home in Rosenberg, Texas. The bid I received from uShip was a great price and the company that delivered the machine was on time and very professional. I could not have been more pleased with the overall outcome of this shipment and will use uShip next time ...


They were a long ways away, but treated me like I was in their office. Felt like I knew what was going on all the time.

Gradall delivery

My contact people were very good, as well as the driver that delivered the item. Everything seemed to go smooth.

uship experience

First time I used uship. It was easy and felt I had control of price and delivery dates. Would defintly use this service again.

First time user

This was the first time I used a service like this and now wish I had known about it sooner - it could have saved me a lot of money in my previous two shipments! Bob Harmon (6axlergn) did an excellent job and kept me informed all along the route to ensure all my needs were met. I had called two other trucking companies to move this long reach excavator before posting it on Uship and they wanted ...
