Good experience.

The only issue I had was I was unable to find a phone number to actually speak with someone about payment questions. Being able to speak to an actual person at that moment would make the whole process much better.


communication good ,on time delivery. Unloading was a bit of learning curve, but for the next time now know what to do to unload quicker. The unexpected but appreciated part was the driver stayed and helped get the container completly on the ground before leaving . Would use again Liked the whole concept of UShip , worked well will definatly use in the future..

JS is 100%

Just to say Contact is easy, dealling is easier and all other parts its 100% Mr Duncan was a 200% helpfull and We really appreciate the business, Highly recomendent JS and I will do my best to refer you guys. Was a perfect job.

Entrega puntual sin problemas

T odo ok. Hubo algunos problemas en la descarga pero el transportista trato de solucionarlos lo mejor que pudo con las posibilidades que había. Tampoco puso problemas con el acceso al sitio de la descaga que estaba lejos del pueblo

Great reliable company

You cannot ask for a more smooth service. For all those terrible transportation companies out there learn from this company.Excellent Services will definately use again...

I have had a great experience using Uship and would recommend the concept to anybody....The web interface was a little frustrating with my iPhone however on the computer was great.


Bought this generator at a auction but was not sure how to get it half way across the country so i decided to put it up for bids. Many bids came in but decided to use Jim Matheson and what a pleasure, Jim was there to answer any questions I had and was accurate with his estamated times. I saved over $300.00 by using U-ship and would recomend Jim for any work. I use trucking companies on a regular ...

tree spade

We purchased a tree spade at Ritchie Bros. in Chilliwack, BC. and needed it shipped to Sask. This was our first time using uShip, and it was very easy to use and very convenient. The service provider we used did an excellent job and we will definitely use them again. We look forward to using uShip in the future.

First time using

Learning experience buying something quite far from home. Need to do more research on size and weights for shippers before using again. Don't think we could have gotten it ourselves for what we were charged. Will definitely use again!!

Hauling of a ripper attachment

Purchased ripper attachment at a Ritchie Bros. Auction in Montreal and needed it shipped to Edmonton. It was a easy and pleasant experience would definately use Uship and Tricor Transportation again.


moving backhoe and mini barn to new property getting ready to build new house in spring was easy to use uship

fast and easy to book and complete

I posted my shipment and got answers within 1 hour with reasonable prices. I selected the one I belived was more reliable and got my shipment delivered as expected. I have used Uship in the past and will continue using as my first choice for moving heavy and light loads within the US.

Ritchie Bros. Auction

I bought my item at a Auction, and needed it to come almost across the entire country.I had heard of u-ship, but never used before.I wasn't in a hurry for my item, and this made for a better deal, as the shipping Co. could then plan a bigger trip. all i KNOW IS i COULDN'T DRIVE A 1/4 OF 1 WAY for what I payed. I'm happy p.s I like the show too, but somebody's gotta kill that hippie :)

We chose HTS Company and they delivered the hydraulic hammer in just a few days for a reasonable cost. They ...

JD pan

Fast delivery when I hire a owner/operator. Agents and brokers NEVER workout with wide loads. They always underbid and ask for more money.

Deliver of purchased items from an auction

I purchased items online at an auction in Maryland, I live in So. Cal. In doing so I could not physically be there at the pickup. As you might have guessed, the items weren't quite properly packed. What might have been a dead end run for most was turned around to make this delivery possible. The situation was analysed, the problem was addressed, the problem was then solved by the dispatcher, and I ...

uShip experience

I was frankly nervous in putting my trust into an on-line service but was pleasantly surprised. I had a deadline; the rains in Houston were treacherous during load out. The trip was long and the commodities were bulky. All went well...thanks uShip Jerry Shedd

We needed an water tank / trailer combination delivered from Las Vegas to Bellevue, WA

Jerry was easy to work with and did exactly what he said he would do. To add to this, the trailer was purchased via the web, and we did not see or check it out, in person. Jerry pulled the 4 tires and checked out all the wheel bearings on the trailer; before bring it home, for us. He arrived on a busy Friday - coming all the way from Portland OR, to Belleuve WA on our crowded freeways; arriving on ...

New Uship in February 2010 and the information, the system is great. When you need support they give you the hand to get things run in a smooth way.

First time experience

Uship made it safer for someone like me to ship a large heavy piece of equipment accross the country, reading the feedback of shippers helped us decide who to hire.

Pick up compressor from MO. to La.

I was able to coordinate a pick up with Mr. Allen in MO. He was in transit near by and had no problem taking a detour and picking up my air compressor. Mr. Allen kept in touch and even transported the unit to our second yard 10 miles away from original destination without extra fees. Thanks Mr. Allan.

Shipping our sprayer

We had purchased a Wilmar high clearance sprayer in Kansas and had it shipped to Wanham, Alberta. This proved to be interesting as we were 2300 miles away from the machine. With some great help from Rithie Bros Auctions we got the dimensions together and some very interesting questions and quotes from the folks on uShip. Overall we learned a lot about customs and how interesting things can get whe ...

Auction Purchase Shipping

We purchased some construction equipment on an online auction in Arizona. We were able to use Uship and get the equipment delivered to our office in Minnesota with little time and no worries because we had great service from our hauler through Uship!

Great experience

I was hesitant at first using U-ship - was not sure what to expect. We could not have asked for anything better - savings all the way around. If we have an opportunity again to use U-Ship I would not hesitate at all and recommendations definitely!

Good job

Calvin was great to work with. He picked up the load when he said he was going to and delivered it on time. The cost was as quoted. I would not hesitate to use Calvin Cripps services again.

Drivers where helpful

Drivers seemed experianced. while everything went as agreed the communication system needs a little improvement. Good Guys.

Ease of use!

I am a construction operations manager in Hawaii and until I found uShip it was always a hassle for me to get my auction purchases to the port. I would have to spend at least another week on the mainland to get a delivery vehicle and move my purchases to the port for shipping to Hawaii. UShip has made this a no hassle experience for me and I would reccomend thier service to anyone. Brian M. Ope ...

Portable Generator

I was asked to get guotes on freight from NC to OK on this generator. All I had was a picture. I was unsure about the dimensions and weight. Mike, the driver, was wonderful. He was understanding when he picked up the freight and my dimensions and weight was totally wrong. He informed me the freight should be here within 6 days of pick up and it was. Very friendly and helpful on the phone whe ...
