This is a first for me , that is to find an EASY solution to moving large items from england to europe. Hassle free cheap and prompt. I would highly reccomend uship to anyone wanting this sort of service. they put me in touch with a very friendly and professional service provider and i am now happily working away with my 3 ton digger. Easy as pie!

Transporting a 'Wood-Burning-Stove' from Ely to Wales.

The Stove was originally bought on Ebay from a small company - 'The-Boat-Yard' in Ely, Cambridgeshire: the other side of Christmas 09. I contacted 'Parcel-Monkey', on the Stove owners recommendation, as being one of the lowest priced transporters in the country. Their 'system', as highly computerised as they portrayed it, didn't work so well for me: in fact, it didn't work at all. Their 'system' e ...

Wheelchair lift shipping

Needed a second-hand wheelchair tail-lift for a van couriering from the sellers house to mine, following purchase on Ebay. I was shocked at how heavy the item was (over 200kg). I thought I would have trouble getting someone to do the job for me and that moving it would cost a fortune but, after looking at uShip found several companies willing to bid for the work at a good price. My eventual choice ...

Delivery of 4 self-erecting scaffold towers

I was let down by my first Uship provider who offered a great price but never actually communicated with me once I gave them the job. Uship refunded my deposit and I was more careful choosing a company with excellent feedback. Paul Jenkins not only communicated with me but also made arrangements with the person who he was collecting from. It was a very long haul from Devon to Carlisle and Paul m ...

motorcycle lift from hull to prestwick

my motorcycle lift was transported with goldwing and the service was excellent all went as planned and delivered on time. I would recogmend this company.

Efficient service

Bought another item on Ebay couldnt decide wether or not to collect my self, put details in Uship and the decision was made for me! Item was collected and delivered same day. Great service once again!

An excellent idea

I really like this idea for people finding couriers. I have described the service to friends who have never heard of you and you should definitely market your service - I think it could be the next big thing in goods shipping. I would be happy to market you myself!

Fantastic service

We had a piece of plant to be brought from Wrexham to Edinburgh. After completing the registration we received a bid within the day and arranged delivery quickly and without any problems. We will definitely consider this option in the future.

Delivery of Lawn Tractor

Lawn tractor was well secured and handled with care during transportation, delivery and hand over. Using the uShip site was a painless experience and would be used again when required.

Delivery of a medical hoist I bought on ebay

This is how it should always be a great service... The couriers (East Coast Couriers) took care of everything. Price was good, delivery was quickly set up and coordinated totally by the couriers. Everything was taken care of by without a hitch and with virtually no input from me. An excellent experience all round. I would definitely use this friendly family company again.

Tractor transport

Very well-designed site and service: good value and a surprisingly hassle-free - even enjoyable - way to get someone else to move a large lump of metal several hundred miles.

MF 375 tractor - Glasgow to Kent

My first experience - I have to admit I was somewhat sceptical on signing up but I soon realised this was a great way to network with hauliers, to find the most competitive who could thereby avoid expensive dog-legs to the job. Will def use again.

JCB delivery

I have been on the lookout, on eBay, for a reasonably priced JCB for some time and managed to find my ideal machine just west of Swansea. The only trouble i had was that I was in Glasgow and had no way of collecting it myself. I had used uShip in the recent past to arrange transport for parts for my Landrover but wasn't sure if there would be a haulier to move something as large as the digger. ...

great guy in moving dumper

I used qeustgo to move an old dumper I brought. I gave the job to Steve and found him very good at loading and unloading. He arrived when he said he was and loaded securely.

Garden tractor

This was an excellent transaction throughout UShip were excellent and the courier was exceptionally good and for a very reasonable price.

First time - but perfect application for the Internet

You know that companies must be delivering all around the country all the time so it's a case of how to find someone. I did a few searches and uShip came up. I had never used it before but I like the Name your Price option - which I used and a service provider met it within a couple of days. The service provider did a great job and I would definitely use again for another vehicle delivery.

Collection and Deliver

Needed urgent delivery to remote location, Sunday, getting a bit worried, goods had to be there Midday Monday, Man arrived North Midlans in the early hours and delivered to remote location on Kent Coast spot on time, deserves a British medal.

my jcb

starappeal was the only transporter company that actually did the job as promised.....will use starappeal again in the future

When the postman can't carry it

This is my first time using this service. Never knew it existed until I needed a large mower transported but I will certainly use it again.

Should I use uship?

I was unsure whether to bid on an eBay item which was an awkward shape, heavy and in Belfast. I won the item and then panic set in. No need to worry, the whole process was fast and easy, the service provider was super efficient and 3 days later I have it for less than quoted by a pallet shipper of the net. So easy and saved money!

all good

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

A weight off my mind

My wife wanted a great big kiln for glasswork and I bought one on EBay. However, it was in the North-East and I'm in the South, and the kiln weighs over 100Kg. I used a web address for a courier and was redirected to UShip who got a quote from QS logistics: I accepted it as it wasn't much more than it would have cost me in diesel to go there and back, and I didn't have a clue how I was going to ...

How on earth do you get a farm trailer from Somerset to Surrey?

My old muck trailer had rusted to pieces. Found a number of suitable trailers at dealers in Sussex but prices were in the £1500 to £2500 range. Found great trailer in Somerset for a bit over £1000 but how to transport it? Have never used USHIP before, found whole experience totally painless and transport charge of £170 seemed very reasonable. Major saving overall.

Speedy delivery

This is the first time I have used UShip and the service provider helped guide me through the steps. Excellent experience and would definitely use again

great site on which to find a good transporter

great site on which to find a good reputable transporter, easy to use site, very pleased with their service. found a great company who was punctual, polite, easy to get hold of and professional in the service that they offered. will definitely use this site again and have recommended to my friends and family

Moving 2 tractors to my house.

Its started with I needed 2 tractors moving from my late fathers house back to mine. I posted the job and Terry came in the lowest bidder, I checked out their feedback and seemed like a really good company to use. After I accepted they called me to discuss a day the job could be carried out, luckily the next available day they could do was my one day off work so great timing. The day of th ...
