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 416C backhoe St Louis, MO to Brighton, Ontario

Shipped a Cat backhoe from St Louis MO to Brighton, Ont. U-ship provided a convienient way to have a number of bids on the shipment. I found it frustrating as a one time customer to try to find a shipping company that had easy references to read. The whole system worked well for me. Abacus truckline got the bid and they were good to work with.

uShip provides excellent service

I found out about uShip on the Ritchie Bros. website. I signed up to their website and submitted a request for shipping quotes since I was considering purchasing a tractor from the Ritchie Bros Auction in Canada and needed to know the cost to transport the tractor to the United States. I received bids/estimates for the cost to ship and this helped me to know whether to purchase the tractor or not ...

Shipped Equip from Atlanta to Kansas

U-Ship was easy to use and got bids in a hurry. I figure I saved $400 by getting different bids and talking to the providers. Also found it useful to check out feedback on the shipper I used. Things went smoothly and equip arrived on time and in good shape.

My shipping Experience

I used u-ship Kevin bid on the job. He done exactly as we agreed. He picked up when he said he was and delivered on time. He kept me well informed. It was a pleasure working with him and his wife. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is need of heavy haul services. Thanks Robert

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.

Bobcat V638 from Florida to N.B. Canada

After winning the bid at the Ritchie Bros. sale it occurs to you, It's 2000 miles and an international border from home, how am I ever going to get this back. So as walk around the sale, I enter the Uship tent, from there it felt like the problem was not a problem anymore. They walked me through the posting of the item, I returned to Canada the next day, looked at the emailed bids, read the feedba ...

Easiest Way To Ship

I bought 4 scissor lifts at Ritchie Brothers Auction, didn't know how I was going to get them home. When I saw the U-Ship tent I went in not knowing exactly what it was all about. The guy walked me threw the process, in just a few minuets I had the accounts set up and the lifts listed. Within 24 hours I had 13 bids. I checked the feedback, made my choice, they called within the hour, got the lifts ...

No hassle delivery

Rick picked up my tractor from an auction in Bakersfield and transported to Sacramento for me. He gave me an accurate estimate of the pick up time. He was stopped at the inspection station which caused a delay, but he kept in touch the whole time so I knew what was happening. The tractor arrived in perfect condition and the whole experience was positive.

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 ...

I saved lots of $

The bidding for my shipment started at over $1,200 and my items were shipped for less than 1/2 of that. I loved the competitive bidding for my shipment!

My first time using uShip!

I purchased two big trenchers at auction in Illinois and needed them transported halfway across the country to Arizona. I listed my shipment needs on UShip and within a few minutes I started to receive quotes. The next morning I reviewed the profiles and feedback of the 7 or 8 bids I had received and then booked my shipment. My shipper (chopperman) then called me to finalize the pickup and deliver ...

VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER

I shipped a backhoe that I purchased in the US and had to deliver to Canada. The Uship site was very easy to navigate and was able to help me find a shipper immediately. As soon as I hit the button to confirm my shipper - Jerry @ Landstar was in contact with me right away and his service was prompt, timely and cost effective. I would definately recommend and use Uship again.

Excellent experience with shipping my Genie Z30 20N

I was shipping a Genie Z30 20N Boom lift. I need it ship, do to my trailer was ready, an I needed to use the lift. Uship is a great experience for me in using this site. The benefit of getting the best deal for your money, is a great concept. I would use Uship again for my next shipping

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.

John Deere Skid Steer

They were great, shipment arrived within 1/2 hr of scheduled delivery time, they called and told me that driver would be here on Monday, I started thinking that he only had 1 day's drive to get here, maybe he would just be sitting parked waiting for Monday to deliver, I called Bulldog and told them that someone would be on the property all day Sunday if driver wanted he could deliver on Sunday, dr ...

Shipped a F250 TO ME

uSHIP HELPED ME FIND SHIPPING FAST BUT I WAS SURPISED BY THE EXTRA CHARGE AT THE END (AUCTION FEE?). ALSO, I'M NOT SURE WHERE THEY GOT THE AVERAGE COST OF SIMILAR SHIPPING BECAUSE EVERYONE WAS QUOTING HIGHER PRICES. SOME WERE QUITE A BIT HIGHER BUT BY THAT TIME IT WAS TOO LATE BECAUSE i HAD ALREADY MADE THE PURCHASE. IN THE END EVERYTHING WORKED OUT WELL.

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!

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 ...

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.

Yes, we would definetley use uship again if the ...

No problems shipping my water truck.

I will admit I was a little nervous using U Ship, as I have always made shipping arrangements direct with a transport company. When I selected Bulldog to ship my water truck from Phoenix, AZ to Sweetgrass, MT, I was even more nervous that I paid for the shipment in advance. I called Bulldog many times(probably drove them crazy) but everything turned out excellent! On time, on budget, no damage, ni ...

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 ...

great experience

After purching trucks at online auctions for years, we always gritted our teeth when it was time to find someone to ship the trucks to us. This was so easy, and a pleasure. We will be shipping by uship in the future!

Better than having a private shipping fleet

Ever had "auction fever"? That curly thing in your stomach when you said 'why did I buy that?' Well, that was me at a recent heavy equipment auction in Texas. Heavy equipment doesn't fit in the back of my pickup and the next problem, 'where am I going to put that', is where uShip came to the rescue. uShip made the whole trucking thing simple and easy for a beginner to use. From registration to ...

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 ...
