shipping US to UK

Because of the dollar Sterling exchange (UK pound)I wanted to buy a rideon mower in the US. The big problem was shipping an item such as this which was only a part load, and the cost of shipping could negate any advantage of buying in the US. I then discovered Uship but did not immediately realise that it was also usable for shipping overseas, however I had the good sense to ask Uship and found ...

GREAT & Fast

MARK of International Transport was excellent. I plan to use him again. His prices were very competitive adn his service was super. I want to do business through USHIP.COM again because of the fast service and the quality of service.... http://stores.ebay.com/fastusa

Great job of taking care of my personal possessions

After recently moving back to the UK from Florida, we have been searching for months for a good deal on the shipping of 13 large boxes of personal belongings that were of sentimental value to us, the prices came in very high, and the ones that came in lower were very uneager to actually get the job done ! I got the quote for Desert Royal the same night as I requeted bids on UShip and within the ...

From the UK to UT

I shipped 4 pallets of boxes and 2 sofas from the UK to UT. I'd had them in storage in the UK, which was costing a lot every month - around $150. I contacted a shipper I had used before and they wanted $5400 to ship to UT! This was at the limit of making it not really worthwhile. The shipment was mainly books and a few personal items, so it wouldn't have been earth-shattering if I had to ditch ...

Fabulously easy to get my desk from ebay.

I bought a desk on ebay and then found out my family couldn't get it for me. I thought it was going to be a nightmare to organise delivery. I then found Uship on the internet put in what I wanted and before I knew it offers were flooding in. I found one gentleman that was offering to do it the next day. I accepted the offer and my desk arrived today. The gentleman even put it back together for me ...

Sofa Bed from Hexham to Milton Keynes

Within only a few hours of leaving my requirements, I had fixed a deal. The collection worked well. Delivery was delayed by vehicle breakdown. However the delivery men were very helpful in carrying this heavy and large item to an upstairs room. Thank you!

first experience - good experience

'Went online to look for carrier for Granny's chair. 'Noticed uShip and took a look. 'Gave it a try and got a response within minutes. Reasonable price - accepted. Luckily chair picked up next day and delivered the day after. One phone call, one e-mail - all done. Very satisfactory. A good service. JF

Good experience

Good service that takes the work out of finding transport for heavy or large goods. Have to be careful with the haulage company though as little histiory is generaly known and little feedback. Also, ensure haulage company understand the service they have registered for. I selected blanket transport but, although available on the van, blankets weren't used.

leather recliner chair

i wanted a chair collecting from glasgow and delivering to my home address in westyorkshire.i put the information in to uship and went with one of the bids.uship was easy to use and i got good competative prices in which i used.i would defininatley use uship again,thankyou.


Came across Uship after having bought an item on ebay and wanted it transported. Uship site is very user friendly and any questions I had to Uship or a Service Provider were promptly and professionally answered. There are no chatches. Totally legit site and the cost of transport was value for money. So glad I found this site and my first experience with Uship was better than I could have i ...

Great service getting my Sofas down to Buckinghamshire.

Sadly my sister who lived in Derby passed away earlier this year. My daughter wanted her sofas as they were really nice. I was going to hire a van and drive from Slough to Derby to collect them and then I found Uship. I filled in the details of the sofas etc and the bids came in. I liked the looked of Kevin (absabs) even though they weren't the cheapest so booked them. Am I glad I did. Brilliant s ...

Great experience using U Ship

We brought a beautiful Dresser on E Bay but had no way of getting it the 200 miles to our house. I found the UShip web site and things could not of been better. We got lots of bids for a lot less than I thought they would be. We had our dresser delivered in 2 days and could be happier with it. Great Service.

good experience getting my kitchen sink delivered to buyer in London

Very easy system to use, within a few hours I had a good offer from a local firm to deliver my parcel. Although I accepted an early bid I had 4 or 5 further offers over the next 48 hours. I had found it very difficult to find someone who would take a 32kg parcel to london for a reasonable price searching on the internet. U Ship made it very easy as they all came to me. A Kennedy

when service saves you time

after winning a bid on ebay, the trickiest was to come. how to get a piano 300 miles away and bring it back as safely as possible. quick check on googlemaps and enquiry around left me with one option: looking for delivery at an affordable price to avoid going from bargain to pain. I found uShip at the corner of google: it was quick, easy and reliable. and so was the bid, the transaction and the pr ...


Perfect in every way brilliant. Will use again & again. thanks for the service u provide. A**********

Child's wardrobe

Daughter's birthday, walnut veneer child's wardrobe on ebay, easy! Item won, now where was that again, oh that far mmmm. Entered details, received bids by email, no fuss, chose courier, confirmed price, delivery times & details. Wardrobe delivered on birthday, daughter very excited. Parents very happy. Job done.

Couriers are more expensive, except with Uship

I checked everywhere to get a price for my shipment, It looked like the best way was going to cost me an absolute fortune. Yet Uship got me a great price, by a great courier. Ill definately use Uship in the future. Compared to a carrier I was going to use, I saved £110.00! Definately worth the couple of minutes.

Very reliable and flexible service

I contacted this company for a fairly short notice transport of a bed and mattress from Essex to London. Not only was their price very reasonable, they arranged collection the next day and delivery - both at a time to suit me. Their service was reliable, punctual and friendly. I'm very pleased I used them and recommend them without reservation.

Great Wardrobe delivery

Everything went smoothly and arrived promptly-by two lovely guys-Glen and his sidekick. Many Thanks, would definitely reccommend.

shiping some furniture

no recomendation booking some one blind a bit daunting but the whole experiance was swift simple and would not hesitate to use this service again and again

Really positive

I have never used this kind of service before, and when my brother offered me some furniture, I thought about hiring a van. It's many years since I drove a van, and didn't fancy the driving or the loading, so used a search engine and came up with UShip. It was very easy to register and to list the items for transport, and I was pleased to receive the responses and quotes which were more reasonab ...

Great Experience shipping my sofa.

It was great service. I have a narrow staircase and in 3rd floor. Ash and his helper carried the sofa to my living room. Thanks.

Request for delivery

Never used Uship before so was a bit sceptical, a bit cumbersome to get through the first few stages, setting up your account and getting started, but after that all went smoothly. Would definately use Uship again.

Great Service

My first use of this service a Bathroom Suite not the easist of jobs, but made very easy by the uShip service. First class will definately use again.

I discovered Uship when reading a listing of another Ebay member. They had mentioned how good their experience had been - and included the website details. So, as I was wondering where to start with a collection from the other end of the country, I thought I'd give it a try. Within an hour or so of my listing I had received several 'bids' from companies offering to collect/deliver my items. I c ...

my cooker

Thanks to uship I was able to arrange the purchase of the cooker of my dreams, previously I had only looked at sales in my area with limited sucess. It was so easy even with my limited skills on the coputer. Well done.

Easy and friendly furniture shipping

I had three pieces of bedroom furniture that I needed moved from Edinburgh to Alnwick. It's only an hour's drive and not a big load, so it wasn't worth getting a formal removal done. I'd looked into getting quotes from some firms, but they were all wanting £100+ I came across uShip by accident and was able to look around and see what kind of things people were having moved and the kind of bids ...

Delivering her

It was a cold wintery night. The snow froze the children's lips as try tried to whistle a tune but for to warm themseleves up. How they, & I, longed to see her face, paint her cheeks with makup, feed at her shiny bosom. But she was stranded at the warehouse where we had last seen her. It was not safe to ride my motorcycle all the way to London - and more importantly it would have been dangerous f ...

Great experience shipping my ebay item.

Having spent lots of time previously looking up shippers individually, this has been a great find. It makes everything incredibly easy, and the price is excellent.

A great first experience, will definitely use again!

I was shipping a packaged up drafting machine that I had sold to someone in Wales through ebay. I had a tight budget to email it and it was annoyingly 8cm longer than the 150cm allowed by parcel force so both that and the standard couriers were out of the question due to their expensiveness. Whilst searching couriers on Google I came across uShip which seemed to solve all my problems. That it did, ...

Shipping of Oven.

Had problems finding a shipper with insurance for electrical goods in transit to transport an oven purchased on ebay from Manchester to Aberdeen.After loads of phone calls to various on line and yellow pages carriers I found uShip and gave it a go. What a relief, within minutes I was receiving quotes.I had a choice of about 10 and was delighted with how quickly things went after picking one.g1turb ...




We were at a loss as to how to have our new purchase delivered considering the weight of the item and the fact that it was as the other end of the country but when we found uship our worries were soon forgotten and it was a pleasant and easy experience to arrange our delivery. Thank you for your help

Really brilliant furniture move

During a medical emergency Barry took over full responsibilty for the whole job and I was able to leave it all confidently and safely in his hands. I never actually met him, but the unwrapped antique upholstered furniture was picked up and arrived on time in perfect condition while I was absent at hospital. No fuss, courteous, responsible, very efficient, keenly priced. Perfect. The central Ushi ...

Excellent Service.

Found uShip while searching for a courior to bring 7 items of furniture from Bournemouth to Hull. Never heard of them before but found the site and service very easy to use and the communication from them excellent. I will be using uShip again without doubt. The service provider (courior) was very helpful and the good value. I will be recommending uShip to all my friends and family for parcel d ...

Games pickup

I have used Royal Mail or one of the bigger courier service to collect anything that I buy that is at least 100 miles away from where I live and it is quite costly but also the service leaves a lot to be desired. I heard about UShip through the net and decided to give it a try and I am absolutely stunned with the results. I will never use another courier service ever again :) My goods were picked ...

Very cordial experience

I google Uship when I was looking for cheaper alternative to ebay for transporting flower vases I bought on ebay. Registering on Uship was straight forward and all bids above my quote were declined on my behalf and I chose SCdelivery because they were the 1st to quote my maximum bid and I saved £25.00 comparable to ebay. When I bidded for the flower vases I thought I was buying 120 boxes of flower ...


Two gentleman came and collected the bed on time and delivered the same day. worked like clock work and will use these carriers again and I would also recommend them to anyone. thanks for your great servive Nick

Great Job Shipping a Gas Cooker

I needed to get a gas cooker from my parents neighbour to my mother-in-law in Lincolnshire, didn't know how, the cooker was a bargain but that was going to be increased by getting it moved. I started by google couriers and came across U-Ship, seemed like a good idea so set an account up and away I went, bids came through in minutes, I received a really competative bid and decided to op for that, ...

great experience

WE bought a bed frame on ebay and needed to get it from one end of the country to the other! I had never used Uship before but found it very easy. I received 3 offers within 24hours and after checking out feedback I chose Beehire. The rate was excellent and the bed was delivered in excellent condition when it was promised. I was kept informed of the delivery time and the found the service very fri ...

Good experience shipping a sofa

I have never used uship before but found it very useful and a good way to transport goods. The only problem I had was contacting a company that I didn't use, as I had asked for a discount on the original quote, the company got back to me a bit too late so I didn't use them and found I could not apologise for wasting thier time. I would definately use this service again and will recommend to friend ...
