Great way to handle shipments you cant pick up your self

Posted shipment we were looking at purchasing at an auction to get quote to ship to us so we had a more accurate cost of the item should we be successful at buying it. Saves our time of leaving our operation to pick up a purchase located out of province. Works out cost wise about same as it would have cost us to pick it up our selves. Definitely use service again for similar business.

Great way to get equipment shipped

This is great method of getting equipment shipped. Saved me from calling a number of carriers for prices. I did have trouble using the u-ship program. It could be on my end. When I called the office, they were very helpful.

Gran profesional

Entrega rápida, en la fecha acordada, gran profesional, excelente trato y amabilidad. Repetiría sin dudarlo.

Shipping scaffolding I bought at auction.

I bought some scaffolding at the Ritchie Bros auction in Maryland. Too good a deal to pass up. Now to get it. Shipping across the border is expensive, and the pieces are kind of hard to pack. Either go get it myself or get it shipped to the border and pick it up at a warehouse there. I've used uship before and never had a problem. I contracted with Fred at Jancar, and Dennis picked it up and deliv ...

logistics made easy through Ritchie Bros Auctioneers

Bought a machine in Quebec at Ritchie Bros Auction and had it shipped to Alberta. This was an easy and economical way to have it shipped. Saved a lot of time making logistic arrangements. Would recommend it for auction buyers.

Great Company!

Artie from Kos did a great job getting my stuff out to me despite some severe weather and long distance challenges.

Move 3 heavy Equip .attchments

After having been being fleeced and scammed by 2 uship service providers this past summer . One in Canada and one in the US. What a pleasure to have a reliable and honest trucking company . Excel95? Have their # on the wall .and your records. They do what they say !!

shipping USA to Australia

brought a Dozer rake at a RB auction site. RB's have a link to Uship. The interesting thing is that I thought there was a closer working relationship than there actually is. I assumed that the Link would provide all the item details to the winning transport company. This isn't the case. Initially the transport company didn't ask for a signed authorisation, with copy of my ID, as is ...

Delivered on time earlier actually great

Good communication and delivered before the due date which was great cuz we were on a tight time line

Excellent service, would ship again through this company

I had never used u- ship before and it was very easy to do. They made the shipping process do easy. Would definitely use their services again.

Uship is worth a LOOK!

If you are wanting to move something, then UShip is a very good option. Reasonable rates and lots of information on the website. I have used them twice, first time brought home 3/4 ton p/u, Cat skid steer and 14' dump trailer from Montreal to Winnipeg, everything went very well. Second time brought 4 skid steer attachments and concrete power trowel from Saskatoon. Again, everything went real we ...


Aunque la puja empezo algo elevada, al final el precio fue muy bueno y el servicio del transportista fue excelente.

Hauling Ditcher from Nisku to Ontario

uship helped me find a trucking company that would haul a partially disabled machine from Ritchie Bros in Nisku to ontario The trucking company did an amazing job am was right on time!!! thanks Scott and Craig!

Post pounder,

I bought a post driver from a farm sale in rural Alberta . The driver /shipper showed up only 3 days after sale . Nobody was there to load it for him . so he wrestled it on the trailer by hand. Some paper work was not finished at head office about payment confirmation etc . Driver was advised driver to load anyway . It got delivered and Jim from JS transport Alberta did a super job-Mike ;K

2054 John deere processor

Bought a machine at auction in Edmonton was a long haul u ship worked as we did not no what to expect on price . The bids came in real fast and where reasonable

servicio y uso

Me gusta la posibilidad de recibir ofertas de varias empresas. aunque no siempre logro encontrar quien transporte mi carga en uship. me ha funcionado varias veces.

Great service provider!

The service provider did a FANTASTIC job in getting our item delivered. Will definitely be using them again soon!


Shipping with u ship is great its got us out of a pinch more than once.If you ever break down far away and a towtruck is way to much ,witch they always are .you can go on uship and put your claim in ,it will blow you away how much you will save.

sea can delivery

Brad and Jim delivered two sea cans for us. There is a lot of snow, and they had a tight area to unload in. They were great about explaining what they needed from us for off loading. They also took extra time to help us position the cans where we wanted them. It was not part of their job, but we are very grateful for their help and experience. This is the second time we have used uShip. It's a g ...

I would never use this company again.

This guy made next to no attempt to contact me to let me know how things were going. I had to make first contact and after that no one answered the phone. Left messages and get 1 liner emails back. Even better was it was 1 week late, NOT delivered to my business, sub-contracted out to another company that I could have used to get it to me for 1/3 the price ON-TIME. Then I Had to arrange Truc ...

2 Knuckle boom cranes transport

I bought 2 Knuckle boom cranes to export from Canada to Mexico, these was my first shipment that I needed an Inbond Transit service, and Paulm help me everything were ok. Sure I will looking forward Paulm for another transportation from Canada.

First time user

This was the first time I used Uship to move a piece of equipment, the bidding process worked well & I got it moved for less than I probably would have otherwise paid. Easy to use, good experience. I like that I could see feedback from other customers on the providers bidding on move.

Todo correcto. Lo único atención con el tema IVA

Todo correcto lo único a destacar es que según el transportista el IVA no esta incluido en la puja, es por ello consultar y dejar claro este punto. Por el resto sin problema, trato cordial y buen servicio.

Virgin user!

It was my first time using Uship, I need to ship a old rusty 25 feet towing flatbeb to my hunting camp 250 km away from where I bought it. It was kind of triccky by the location, it's in f.... middle of no where, lest say it's far from any mid size canadian city! I was not hopping to receive many bids but I finally received few bids.

large tires shipped

This was the first time we used uship and are very pleased with how things worked out. We got connected with a very reliable carrier for a reasonable price,goods were delivered on time,thank you!

Richie Bros Auction

Shipped a backhoe arranged through uShip. Very simple and easy. Recieved multiple bids and am very happy with the service of my selected provider. I like the fact that I didn't release payment until the shipment was completed to my satisfaction. Pleasurable experience.

Quick and Professional

Tenacious Custom Carriers went out of their way to ensure our delivery arrived on the short time frame we requested!


J'utilise U-ship pour mes transports parceque c'est simple pour l'utilisation de la saisi des données. leur système est bien conçu pour facilité la description des items que nous voulons transporter et il nous permet d'avoir les meilleurs soumission pour nos transports. Bravo à l'équipe U-ship.Je vous recommande sans hésitation. Daniel!

hauling excavator

Barry did an excellent job of delivering equipment despite awful road conditions at the time. truck and trailer in very good working order.


Great first time experience with Uship. Easy to navigate website and easy to enter all necessary information to get quotes for items


I had never used a service like this before. It was overall a good experience and I would do it again.

Great Experience

We purchased 2 pieces of equipment at the RB Auction in Florida we live in Renfrew Ontario Canada and sometimes shipping that distance is a nightmare. But not this time USHIP got the job done. Thank you

Great experience shipping

I had a bucket that I purchased from ritchie bros in toronto and I needed it shiped to winnipeg. I called a few local companies and the best quoted price I recived was 1200$. I tried uship and within two days I got a quote for half the price. The service provider did an excelent job of picking up and delivering the bucket. I would use uship again.

Great experience shipping a heavy equipment attachment.

Purchased a Brush Grapple in the Toronto area and required shipping to Ottawa. I was going to drive down to get it but emergencies came up and made the trip unfeasable. Upon submitting the grapple for a shipping quote through Uship. Many bids were offered and I accepted Jiffyship. After a conversation, I concluded that Jiffyship would certainly take care of the grapple and would keep to their comm ...

Hauling items for from RB auction in Edmonton

When I used this carrier i was very pleased with how he conducts himself and his company, He was very polite and told me when he would be able to haul and it was agreed upon which was faster than i expected he was able to work it in time to when it was easiest for me to unload him also. I also saved money and lots of time by getting u-ship to do this, as I have got u-ship before and everytime i ha ...

u ship and their double fees

I initially thought this a great service, and it is. But the double dipping is not fair. my accepted bid was for 390.28, I put deposit of 20.48 plus a uship service fee of 18.00 to total 58.28. So you would think I owed the difference. 390.28-58.28=332.00......WRONG, they added another 18.00 and I had to pay upon delivery 350.00. so uship charged 18 twice. My shipper had no idea they charg ...

First, and good experience with Uship

This was my first time using Uship, and except for a strike (my misunderstanding on how to communicate) everything went extremely well.

Shipping heavy wheeled fire equipment.

Worked well, quick and convenient. Allows for quick communications with the shipper. Cost was very reasonable I will use the process again.

Ritchie Bros Auction Item from Florida to BC Canada

We purchased item from Ritchie Bros. and used U Ship to find a trucking comnpany that could get the item to us quickly and at a competitive rate. We selected Tricor as they allready had a truck in the area and we were able to research them on the internet. We gave them all the info we had from Ritchie Bros. and their driver was able to determine that there was more to our load than what Ritchie Br ...
