Excellent service from Dave. Competitive quote, collected quickly and delivered the next day. Dave kept me informed at every stage and dealt with the awkward receiver well. All in all - great service.

Massive parrot cage from Oxford to liverpool through the snow.

This man drove through snow all day to get me my parrot cage. This is a massive cage and I would not have been able to get it without him. Him and his son were so polite, and I thank them so much. The poor man and his son deserve medals... Thanks again!.

First Timer

If ONLY I had known about u-Ship before. I used to give it to my secretary at work to sort out for me and it was always a nightmare and probably very environmentally unfriendly to send one van for one journey to fit in with an ebay seller for example. I am looking forward to buying things from further afield now and also selling things offering u-ship to my buyers to increase the selling price!

great service!

Very good service, Even tho there was a mix's up in communication at the pick up address ( due to us ) they still hung around to do the job, no problems at all and allways in contact with us to keep us updated. thanks again

Wonderful First Time with uShip

We had a rather large server case to ship, it wasn't brand new but we didn't want to waste it. Most other providers wanted the cost of a new case in order to ship. We then tried uship. the prices started off very high but soon came down to what we wanted to pay. we saved around £200 shipping with uShip. The shipper was first rate and provided a Professional and Friendly Service - they did exact ...

Two short planks

We design and build highly insulated garden offices and annexes using best quality UK materials. see www.iobuild.co.uk. On our latest job our wood supplier over enthusiastically sent us too much Scottish larch cladding. We are a small company that doesn't own any commercial vehicles and it would have been dreadful to have thrown the spare wood away. Uship came to the rescue and we managed to sh ...

Positive experience shipping a bulky fibreglass water treatment system

Offered bids on line to ship from UK to France as the item is not manufactured in France. Received good advice and a number of competing bids on Uship. Selected a bidder and discussed the details of delivery. They were extremely helpful and co-operative. The unit was delivered ahead of schedule and in perfect order. Payment by Pay Pal added to the ease of use of this service. I'll definitely use U ...

Excellent service delivering Aluminium extrusion

I needed to find someone fast to make a delivery from London to Devon. I didn't want to use a courier service as the goods needed to be handled with care. I was ideally looking for a small family firm to make the shipment. I wanted a dedicated vehicle. Someone who regularly made shipments down to Devon/Cornwall direction. U ship were able to put me in touch with many service providers. SC ...



first time uship-er

Used uship for the first time the other day after winning some antique doors on ebay. Found the service to be excellent and very easy to use. Resulted in a successful shipment at a very good price, in fact I couldn't have done it for less myself taking only the cost of fuel into account. My service provider - viper294 - was excellent with all aspects of the shipment from communication to packag ...

Great opportunity

Gives me the opportunity to get diverse quotes. The feedback is very helpful as well,enables one to evaluate the provider.

Uship collection and delivery.

First time I've used Uship and would recommend it to anyone. It worked very well for us when we needed to get 3 heavy rolls of material and some accessories across the country at fairly short notice.

Will never use any other website for shipping!

Uship.com is the top of the top for shipping rates. I mean, I found no better rates anywhere else online. This venue should be listed in Forbes, as a top 100 company in my opinion. I will never use any other method for shipping again. Great service, and very easy to use. Thank you uship.com, will recommend you to all my business partners. Mamhood Sameah, Cairo Leather, LTD

Doors Will Travel

7 Doors from Bristol to Plymouth ebay Purchase Good experience of using the site. Not sure how much I saved using uShip, but I was happy with the amount charged. ( Though you uShip seem to take a high commission 20 % approx for providing just the websit network ) The delivery by ' goldwing1969 ' a 2 man team was successfully & professionally completed within 3 days. I would use ...

Restrictive time slots met!

A co that was eager to please and could both collect and deliver in two limited time periods seperated by 6 days. Excellent

Well done

I bought a post driver (that works behind a tractor) from a company in scotland and when it was built ifound out delivery was not part of the deal,didnt fancy 800 mile round trip from kent to collect it so browsed the web for hauiers ,found uship entered details and bigal0772 won the bid. JOB SORTED

7 oak barrels shipped from UK to Ireland

I found U ship through google. I was very impressed with the service, the website was easy to use, the email updates were very helpful, the feedback on the shipping companies was excellent and gave me a confidence in choosing a shipping company

Exellent service

Placed details and not long after had 2 very reasonable bids. booked collection and the item arrived safe and sound within a week of booking. Uship takes the hassle out of buying things 'long distance' and the service providers are very competative even with the price of fuel being so high. I would recommend Uship to anyone considering buying unpostable or awkward items and tell them to stop at h ...

Good response for transporting pallets across Europe

First time I have used uShip excellent system I had arranged delivery within 30min of logging on ......Brilliant will use uShip from now on

Carriage of roller shutter door from Essex to Cornwall

I bought a roller shutter door online saving myself several hundred pounds when compared to local companies. However, the supplier couldnt offer a delivery service and quoted £350 from his usual courier to deliver from Essex to Cornwall. I tried half a dozen couriers, who either couldnt offer to deliver at all (the item was 4 metres long) or quoted prohibitive prices. I discovered Uship via a sear ...

collection of heavy sash window

bought a heavy sash window and arranged collection through uship (60.00) cheaper than any other courier. The courier called the seller and arranged the collection and delivered when he said he would.

First Time user

Introduced to the site by a neighbouring business. The offers came in quite quickley and most below our usual transport company. Will certainly be useing you again and reccomending to others.

Wonderful idea

Interesting, money and time saver impressed a must use clever site and I have recommended it and will be a regular customer

Delivery of Bean sticks

Very happy, put request up and had two responses very quickly and accepted one which was reasonable and delivery driver was great and one happy customer.

Delivery of Two large cupboards

Very Good Value and five star service. Collection made in difficult circumstances and items delivered as agreed out of hours. We appreciated the care and help in unloading and transporting the two cupbaords indoors.

First Time Customer

Came across uship.com by chance. What an excellent all round experience. Highly recommended for shippers and clients.

Chipper shipping

I bought a garden chiper on EBAY. I'd spoken to a transport company beforehand and thought everything was in place when I won the item. When I phoned to book the collection, the response was "It will be on a pallet, won't it?" Buying from EBAY, from a domestic property means that pallets and banding are out. I was left high and dry. Luckily I stumpled upon uShip, which very neatly integrates wi ...

Collection of bulky fence panels

I bought 10 3.5m fence panels on e-bay and was thinking of travelling about 150 miles round trip to collect them as none of my normal couriers wanted to know. I was not in any great hurry to receive these items and decided to give u ship a try. It worked well for me with a saving in time as well as money.There was a slight hickup when the courier had a cancellation of part of his load and let me k ...

Fantastic First uShip Experience

Needed a tractor-mounted chemical sprayer to spray the vile weed ragwort on my farm that if ingested by horses can ruin their liver. I had been searching and found one on eBay and the seller recommended uShip, which I'd never heard of. Wow! Now I've experienced uShip, won't use any other method! Easy-peasy! I saved at least £100. The Courier I used was The Best!

son moving

Pick-up of shop gondola, bought on ebay, picked up from Peterborough to Kent. A 5 STAR service, honesty, trustworthy, excellent communication, great customer services, a memorable experience, feels like doing business with an old friend! I will never ever use any other courier services again as this is the best service, I have had for a long time with transport/delivery and more. SIMPLY THE ...

Mountboard Cutter

First time user, for collection and delivery of a cutter bought on e-bay. Easy to use on-line process, quick response from auction bidders. Overall a pleasant experience and would use again.

Delivery from Runcorn, Cheshire to Keith Moray, Aberdeenshire

We used this service to find a courier willing to travel to Aberdeen from Cheshire to delivery a large roller garage door. The site was easy to use and we saved approx. £70 compared to all other quotes we had received. 2collies were excellent. Fast and efficient and punctual as well as friendly and informative. We highly recommend them and will be using them again. Uship is a great way t ...

Glass panels , doors and server cabinets

The goods were collected on time and deivered when agreed. Was kept up to date with the job at all times. Excellent service

juliette balcony

i bought the item off ebay, to far to go for it so i contacted uship and just waited for the quotes, picked one and the job was done.

Same day service

I needed goods delivering the same day. I used the uship service and received a spread of prices. It allows you to read all reviews about the courier before selecting. Eventually the price was as competitive as a pallet service - but safer, quicker, and less stressful. A great internet sefvice.


We have bought a cable pulling rod but the seller would not deliver so we needed to arrange a courier. This is the first time we have booked through uShip and it worked really well and was very good value for money. Service Provider Stays was very efficient and we would recommend him to other users of uShip. We do not use couriers that often but if we did need to in the future we would consider u ...

Excellent Service from Graham

Having purchased Rose Quartz Lampsin south Africa, I needed them brought back to the UK. The problem was with the supplier,I ordered these goods in South Africa in January for shipment end February, My supplier was 2 months late, and still tried to deliver on Easter Saturday! I finally got them yesterday. And the invoice was wrong! Graham was so patient, with me and the supplier. When the ...

Chipboard from Chippenham

Timber merchant wouldn't deliver oversized almost unliftable sheets of chipboard, Kev wasn't daunted, arrived only a short while after his ETA, helped offload and carry in the monstrous panels in exchange for a cup of tea.

As a first time user I was a bit dubious

I bought something off e-bay and couldn't pick it up for a few weeks so I contacted uShip and every thing just fell into place. No worries and hassle free. I tried to get other quotes of other couriers but just submitting the items I wanted transporting took an age and none of them came any near the cost I actually paid.


U ship provided a very fast quote from a courier who was excellent. Only criticism is fee charges of 30% of the delivery cost seemed excessive

Transporting disco Lights

From simply selecting the courier and receiving the goods was less than 8 hours and the travel was 3 hours alone. hey could not pick it up until 1630hrs so well done would really use them again

4 cwt Electric Pallett truck. E bay purchase.

I sourced the above equipment and it turned out to be some 190+ miles away from me. I then costed the job with suitable van hire time and fuel likely expenditure and soon decided the self collection in monetary terms was going to outweigh the equipments actual cost, not commercial sense. I then happened upon the U ship platform via google and duly placed my haulage /transfer request. My inbox w ...

Collection, Transport, Delivery Of Photocopier

Charity required the return of a photocopier on completion of lease period. Whilst seeking quotes, we stumbled on to U-Ship online and put a tender out. We got a few bids and eventually the bids came down to the cheapest option for us. The process was straightforward and the photocopier was delivered in one piece and according to instructions. Would definitely use U-Ship again.

Delivery of wood products.

We required to get to our customer in Cheshire Oak components for porches. We had given a specific date for delivery but did not relish making the trip from Kent ourselves. We enrolled on U-ship, specified the consignment and delivery date and had contact from a carrier very quickly. Further to accepting a very reasonable price, collection was made on the agreed day, (the carrier even assisted ...

Collecting a large diesel mixer

I love the fact that the transporting price, can be bided on, and the keenest professionals are looking for their jobs. It makes a change from having to try to get people to do collections for you. I also may transport locally and use the service from both sides. Awkward large objects locally are easy for us , but small or far away items are not , as we don't have part loads going multi direct ...

Office desks Bratislava to London city

I had to move office desks and equipment from Bratislava to London. We had an appointment at 9am in Bratislava with the driver. Eventually he arrived at 11am. Andy managed to keep me posted by SMS and email. The collection has been made very professionaly and the driver was very nice. I wasn't here for the delivery but from what I know everything is ok. Also, I have appreciated a little SMS from A ...
