Delivery of tractor

Duncan, with JS Transport, delivered exceptional service in a timely fashion. The equipment that was used was near new and the few minor requests that I had were well looked after. I would definitely recommend their service.


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 :)

They moved my loader and save me time.

Everthing worked out verygood, learned alot very quick. Glad it turned out so good Thanks everyone.

The Cat

I needed to ship a Cat 236B skidsteer from Chilliwack BC to Terrace BC a distance of 1300km the booking was done late Friday, machine was picked up on Saturday and delivered to my driveway at dinner time Sunday where the large amounts snow was waiting for the Cats arrival. Kevin fired it up and unloaded it and it went to work. Kevin and his wife where great. Hope you guys got some sleep? Harry ...

Shipment from Prince George to 100 mile house

Bought a trailer at the Richie Bros auction, Uship made it easy for me to get multiple quotes and choose a reliable shipper that delivered it on time and on budget. What a great experience, keep up the good work. Loved it, made my life easy.

Hauled 3 step decks from vegas

This was my first go at uship so I wasn't sure. Didn't get a lot of response and it seemed many guys would do it for astronomical rates. But, after my load sat for 3 weeks it seemed guys were keeping it as a backhaul option, and then the good prices started coming. Andy from dak seemed quite well connected and got me hooked up for a reasonable fee. Was nice to work with a guy who had tons o po ...


We had our Freightliner shipped from California to us in British Columbia, we had lots of bids and quite quickly. We are very impressed with USHIP's services.

Case ih 2388

Uship made it easy to arrange delivery of our combine. NOS Trucking replied with a competive bid and delivered in the time frame specified. I would recommend this provider and would use them again in the future.Job well done. Thank you

trailer shipped

i bought a trailer at Houston and needed it shipped to Dallas area, Uship got me in contact with some haulers that did a good job and very reasonable. thanks

Online auction

Purchased a pickup from an auction in Texas and had it delivered from the Texas auction yard to the Chicago auction yard. Much easier than flying to Texas and driving the truck home!

Moving backhoe from CA to OK

I purchased a Case 580SL at Richie Brothers Auction in Dunnigan, CA and I accepted a bid from Laurel Miller Trucking. I spoke with dispatcher Greg and he gave me a date that backhoe would be picked up. Greg called and emailed me 1 day ahead and said that truck would be picking equipment up the next day. Truck was right on time, driver was very professional. Driver took extra care in sucurring load ...

Ritchie Brothers Auction Equipment

Great way to get competitive bids on shipping. I will be a uShip customer for all my equipment shipping requirements.


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 ...

Helpful way to find a shipper

Needed to have our tractor delivered in a rural area on a gravel road. They had no problems getting it to us and following the directions to our ranch. Liked using uShip as it gave us several choices of shipping companies and we received a very competitive bid.

Made Shipping an 18000# Forklift a painless experience.

Shipped a 18000# Forklift that was purchased at Ritchie Bros Auctions. The ease of the uShip site made shipping a seamless and painless experience.Fast quotes with excellent communication. The shipper kept us informed and delivered what they promised. Shipping cost was 50% of what we had budgeted. We couldn't ask for a better experience. Definitely will use uShip for shipments in the future.

November 2010 winter storm

The driving conditions were interesting, first winter storm with snow and ice. Thanks for delivering my trailer safely

NPK 4X hydraulic hammer

We bought a piece of equipment at an auction in Phoenix, Ariz. We needed it to be delivered to Oxnard, CA. When we listed it on uship we began to receive bids for shipping within an hour. We were glad to be able to look at the reviews for the shippers that were offering their services. 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.

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 ...

excellent experience delivering my heavy equipment

I recently purchased two road graders at an auction in Montreal Quebec, and needed to deliver them to our province of New Brunswick.Owning our own Float, but only having permits and license for N.B.we started to get other quotes and found it was cheaper and less hassle for us to hire Fralex Express Inc.After a quick phone call and short notice our purchases were delivered on time without hassle, w ...

Heavy Equipment

Bid came in right after I sent the email and he was ready to pickup items that day but auction site was not open. He arrived at opening of business the next moring and completed the transport by 2pm. I could not have spend better money on a transport service! Thanks.

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 ...

good service with some delays

This shipment involved a boom truck from Atlanta, Ga to Ft.Lauderdale, Fl. Everything was running well, including coordination for pick-up at the auction site. Even after confirming that the equipment was loaded, we received a notification that the equipment dimensions were 6" higher and the price was increased about 30%. This situation delayed the shipment until payment was completed on the new ...

Graet experience shipping my equipment.

Buying equipment at am auction can be very stressful, especially when it comes to shipping. My uship ecperience made to whole experience painless. What a great job.

Heavy Equipment Shipment

Had 2 pieces of heavy equipment to move from Maryland to Canada. Was delivered promptly without a problem.

Skid steer delivery

Dustin went beyond my expectations. He treated my equipment as if it was his own. I would ship with him again anytime with confidence.

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 ...

Backhoe hauling

It is the first time I have used u-ship I was very pleased how things worked out and if I need to ship again I will use them. I had them haul a Backhoe from an auction to my farm

thanks for the delivery of my truck

i shipp a Ford 1991 Vaccum truck, at first in Arizona, the outside mechanic, told me that everything was ready , to send the truck, but when Greg arrived, the batteries that i paid for a new ones, were low in charge, so the mechanic do all the job again and the driver told him that the trouble was the alternator, and the mechanic said no, that is not the trouble, at the end Greg was right they hav ...

vegas to fontana

the trucker left one Item behind, but the Shipper preimbuirse the cost of trucking for the forgotten item


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.

Shipping CAT 246B

As with all 'first times' I was a little apprehensive at first. I have to admit that I didn't even know uship existed. In todays internet days and the possibilites of scams etc. I am always hesitant with new or unfamiliar ventures. After completing the transcation and making the arrangements, everything just fell into place. It couldn't have gone any smoother. Thanks a bunch I am very satisfi ...

Good experience

From the start to finish everything was awesome. They shipped a Terex TA 30 articulated off road truck. They hauled it here just a dat later than I had hoped, but it did'nt hurt anything. They saved me over 200 dollars in freight. The only thing I recommend is with Uship itself. I think that there shouldnt be a booking fee or pay up front. with other companies normally you pay all at dropp-off or ...
