Delivery to Italy

I needed a large 8.5m boat to be delivered to Salerno, Italy. This company quoted cheaply and were keen to pick the boat up within 2 days of booking. They came and collected the boat on our trailer, delivered it to Italy and brought the trailer back a day early. The uShip website was very useful as it provided me with several quotes, allowed me to find out what sort of vehicle the haulage firm wou ...

Bring a boat to Scotland...

uShip will remain my shipping auction site of choice henceforth! I'd used a similar site twice before, and both times boat transportation was involved. First time, I was let down by the boat broker - not a fault with the other site at all. The second time, the shipper procured through the other site let me down at the last possible moment. This time, all went well. The site lived up exact ...

Pick-up and deliver a kayak

This was my first experience with uShip. The process is straightforwrad and user friendly. Steve picked up the kayak from Oxford and delivered to Merseyside exactly as we had agreed. A kayak is not the easiest thing to transport and he took really good care of it. Steve is extremely professional and I will have no hesitation in using his service and u-Ship again. For this quality of service I wou ...

Arranged transfer of a wooden , nordic folkboat from Pinmill in Suffolk to Kip Marina in Scotland at relatively short notice. RMSTransport came in with a competitive price and an expertise in boat/yacht transfers judging by their own website case pictures. I was particularly pleased with their punctuality and level of communication throught the 2 days and their helpfulness on arrival. Would hap ...

I had not tried UShip before but found the site user friendly and the responses were excellent. I had to move my boat by road as the Thames was flooded and I needed to move it to its out-of-water winter mooring. I could not have been more impressed with the service provided and at an excellent price. Will definitely use UShip again.

move of fairline sunfury 28' from Greenock to South coast

Dean may only recently have registered on Uship but take it from me he is reliable, friendly to deal with, charges a competitive and realistic price for the services offered and has equipment very suitable for boats up to approx 6 tons. collection and delivery both occurred within 30 mins of etas. Dean had a fair amount if prep work to do on the boat to make it ready for moving 400 odd miles and ...

Boat Transport

I urgently needed a boat to be transported the the Fens before the boatyard was too busy with its own fleet. Happily the provider was able to react quickly to the need and arrived promptly and carried out the journey without hitch and even assisted in the slipway launch. I was much impressed by the competent, personal service that was provided and the insistence on not leaving until not only the b ...

Gary from Pro Drive Boat Transport

Traveled with Gary from Ford to Berkeley and picked up a 27' / 12' Python, then took it back to Shoreham-by-Sea. Gary was very helpful in loading unloading the boat and was good to chat to on the journey and professional through the duration of the job.


Sailing company based in London, with a boat and all our season equipment. Stuart was flexible, met us for the pick up, really helpful, arrived in Split - a long way - very reasonably priced and all round nice chap!

Boat delivered, and even launched!

I had heard about reverse auction sites from business books but haven't tried one, until now. I'm glad I found this site because I had my boat delivered from North Norfolk to Southampton for a really good price, and the guys who delivered it, a father and son team, were great. Many people would deliver the boat, and then it's job done so they'd just leave, not Bob and his son, they helped me launc ...

Transport of a speed boat from Scotland to plymouth

First Boat Delivery

Searching around for an economical transport company to deliver my boat from Lowestoft to Weston Super Mare. Uship quote came in at less than half of what some deliverers quoted me independently. Very polite and helpful transport company - with a personal touch to the whole event. As this was my first time in terms of boat delivery I was very impressed. Uship certainly delivered an excellent Eb ...

Double Kayak delivery from our supplier to our customer

We got a quick offer to our 'my price' option which meant we could get our delivery out swiftly. It was a large double kayak which our supplier was unable to find a regular courier to deliver it to north Wales so we were lacking in time. The site was easy to use and I didn't really understand the process, but the service providers communication made the whole thing clear. I would definetly use the ...

boat engine collection

Having bought this engine on ebay the choice was drive down or find a delivery service at a reasonable cost, my first bid auction i messed up by transposing the collection and delivery addresses, but as soon as i listed it properly, within minutes I had an acceptable quote. Astra Move did the job on time and at the agreed price, can't fault them and will definitely use this service again.

I listed the collection and delivery of a mayland fishing boat on a 16ft trailer from Portsmouth to Blackpool .This was my first use of the Uship service .The process was very easy to use and setup,by the time that the listing had ended I was in no doubt that it was uneconomical for me to make the journey from Blackpool to Portsmouth to collect the boat considering the amount of fuel and along w ...

Boat transport

It was through Uship that I found William Bird to deliver the boat that I purchased on ebay. Everything went well and I consider the overall cost excellent and the opportunity to meet Mr Bird the transport agent excellent. I will use Uship when I next have a delivery problem.

First class boat delivery.

I needed my boat collected in Southbourne and delivered to Dumfries in Scotland by 8am the next day. Martyn did the job admirably, delivered my boat safely and on time.
