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.

Delivery of goods

Communication could have been better. All in all satisfied with the service provided Rate was really more than fair for my shippment Would use Lisa again for future shippments.

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.

All in good order

The process of feedback is a wee bit time consuming - it should be enough that we rate the services and not be required to write a story about it - we are all fare too busy for this.

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 ...

large farm equipment

Equipment was handled and imported just like we hoped it would be. Good way of finding a carrier with the right equipment. Thanks

2 pieces equiopment

all arrived in good shape uship is a very convenient way to have bigger items shipped will use again

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 ...

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


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!

No hassels importing large equipment

Bought large Frac Tank at a auction in Colorado. Transported 2300kms to Ontario. No problems and tank delivered as promised.



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

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.

Awesome experience

Would use this service again and would pass on the word that it is reliable, professional and reasonable. Thank you

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.

Great experience shipping my Equiptment

Jim got to us late in the evening a day early and it was perfect got it unloaded and he was on his way. Thanks Jim look forward to next time.

Great experience shipping my crates

Figured I would give it a shot, I normally transport everything myself. I was unsure at first, but with the no obligation auction I figured why not try it. It was too easy and the bids were reasonable, I will definitely be using Uship again in the future

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 ...

Great experience

Very nice people to deal with. Great service, good communication, very professional, would highly recommend.

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 ...

Back hoe shipment

We bought a backhoe at the Richie Bros auction in Edmonton. Being a first timer i wasnt really sure of the processes of shipping so we got onto uship. The process was awesome with shippers bidding on our job. I then recieved a call from a fellow in Texas i think, ( sorry I cant remember his name) and he walked me through the whole process as we were new to uship. He gave me tips on how to make it ...

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. My shippement was'nt a valuable one so it was a good time to ...

!947 Mercury 1/2 Ton Pickup

I bought a 1/2 ton at a farm auction in Minitonas MB. Not sure were that is but the Uship transportation supplier found the farm and then had to find the owner son 10k away to load the truck. The transportation company went out of their way to pick up the shipment . This is the first time using Uship and this shows the quality of the companies bidding on shipments. I will use this service again ...

Shipped combine header

I purchased header on an online auction six hours from my farm. I was to busy to go and get it. The auction Richie bros. suggested I try uShip. I did and I am very happy with the service I received. The trucking contractor J S Matheston delivered the item on time and in excellent condition. I will definitely use uShip again. Jim Range Turtleford Saskatchewan

shipment - uShip

My first experience with uShip from Houston TX to Windsor ON with a piece of used construction equipment was extremely easy and on time. The software is easy to navigate and intuitive. The carrier (Tricor Transportation Inc.) was on time for pickup and delivery and maintained excellent communications throughout the trip. I would definitely recommend uShip as well as use them again myself.

844J Loader

I shipped a 844J Loader. My experience with U Ship was good.Had to call in a few times and always got the answers I needed. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The provider picked up and delivered on time and kept in daily contact. Very professional. I would definitely use them again. Excellent service and communication. I would definitely use U Ship in the future.

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.
