Excellent service

I am so pleased that I stumbled across this web site! Just as I was beginning to despair at the imminent house move that my elderly parents were making, up popped u ship! The company that moved Mum and Dad were excellent and could not have done any more to make what could have potentially been a difficult and emotional move very easy. Communications were great, and the web site was even ea ...

Small move

The lads were on time, and couldn't help more. As I had broken toes, I couldn't help with the shifting any stuff, but it wasn't a problem. All my items were moved promptly and I couldn't fault the service provided in any way. I'd strongly recommend the lads for any kind of move.

generally a good experience

double check what the bids promise as most quotes were actually for one man and a medium size van and only door to door; most people would expect room to room, two people and a big van: check the extra charges! Apart from that we got a good service

Double Mattress

I needed a double mattress to be moved. They came picked it up and transported the item to my brothers

Nervous but was completely happy

I was nervous about using a website I didnt know much about but I am delighted with the service received from BeeHire. Excellent communication and no hassle with the collection or delivery of the boxes. I thoroughly recommend BeeHire if you are looking for a professional low cost shipping company.

room contents removal

This is the first time I have used Uship and I am delighted with the service, communication and overall performance. I will definately use your services again. Keep the good work up. Regards mary Burnett

Removal of my and my husbands furniture

I needed a "man with a van who can" and hit gold when Mr David Horsfield bid for the job. He is courteous, efficient, and takes thultimate care of the goods with which he is entrusted. David is prompt, professional, and it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with him and his assistant, Paul. I would recommend the services of this gentleman to anybody needed a nationwide removal, large or smal ...

Just my pc... and desk... and clothes... and other stuff.

Moving to Bristol, i had to find someone willing to bring my personal belongings. Uship was great, taking the hassle out off looking through ads and so on. Found a member who gave a great price and could do it that weekend. Only thing was that the bidding system is slightly strange and not explained as fully as probably needed.

My move

Great move - easy transition from old place to the new. Couldn't have been happier (apart from maybe not having rain when loading the van!)

Gem of a service!!!!

Uship was a great help. Using this service saved me around 50% against all the quotes i had received over the telephone. Transport Europe (and Bryan) won the bid with they great price & even let me travel with him in the van which again saved me money. would 100% use uship and transport europe again.

Big Relief

We have moved 300 miles away and needed someone to shift all of our stuff. Decided to accept bid from Matt Sellers Transport and were very impressed with the price and level of service. Excellent communication, couldnt do enough to help. Turned up on time and loaded van. Turned up 300 miles later on perfect time and unloaded. It was a massive relief to deal with such a friendly and helpful person ...

Move from Milton Keynes to Manchester

Found Uship by accident on internet.. Thought would try.. Had some fabulous quotes and chose one from about the middle after talking to a few we selected first.. We got really lucky and found probably one of the best independents going.. Our move went without a hitch.. (well almost.. but that wasn't the fault of our movers.. and they even got around that).. Can recomend uship to anyone.. but ...

House move

I had sold my house and put my things into storage. Having had an astronomical quote from a relocation firm I decided to use self-store and move my things in gradually. We were going to hire a van and move the stuff down ourselves, until I read about uShip in a news article. I didn't quite believe that the system would work, but lo and behold the bids started coming in almost immediately. The good ...

International House Move

Booking a house move from England to Italy was easy, efficient and economical. Thanks.. Noah and his team of removal men did a great job.

Moving to a different city

My partner and I had our whole life packed away into David's van and we're able to ride in the front with him from Nottingham to Edinburgh. He had the experience and knowledge to get us there at precisely the right time. Furthermore, it looked like we were going to arrive early so he suggested we pop to the supermarket to pick up some basics for the flat! All the goods were in perfect condition ...

house move

I needed to move my stuff out of the family home, I had 5 delicate guitars, drums and all my personal belongings. within hrs of booking, i had a courtesy call to say thank you for booking with him and he will ring to sort out the delivery details nearer the time. i was contacted at various times before, and after collection/delivery and i had no problems with contacting him if i had a question. he ...

Very good website

I found uShip by accident and I am very pleased that I did. i found a company which helped me to move and I managed to save money.

Positive experience

Second time using the site but first time completeing the job. Shipping stuff from A to B is a new thing for me so fumbling through the site was a bit of a mess to start with but eventually it's all been good. Plenty of good communication via this site with service providers. Also got promt response from uShip help desk guys with a querie on my account. All good.

Moving home from the Scottish highlands to Surrey

Found process of listing delivery and reviewing bids easy to follow. Ability to message bidders made clarification of more complex points simple. Brett did a great job collecting and delivering exactly as we had agreed. Was a little wary of the website initially but will definitely use uShip again and would recommend Brett to anyone.

Great site

Big fan of U-ship. Used it three times now and the costs came in between 50% and 25% of regular quotes.

colllected and delivered range cooker

Dan was one of the first to give me a quote which i found to be so very competitive,but we couldnt get the dates to marry up,then i got more quotes so much higher than his,any way to cut the long story short,i re arranged another date and put it back on u ship and Dan saw it contacted me and we did the business. All i can say is that he was brilliant from the begining to the end, and i wont now u ...

great service

not much to tell needed to send table & 6 chairs back i brought of ebay. U ship was the best way to do it very cheap and would use again would be good if they had tracking numbers so you would know your items have been delivered

Moving day

My girlfriend and I were moving all our furniture and belongings from one end of London to the other.

Easy, great value and efficient

I recently moved from Berlin to London. I had 17 boxes to be moved from a storage facility. I decided to use uship because it was so easy and such great value. Other service operators would have charged me extortionate amounts. I got an excellent deal using uship. I was a little hesitant at first, but everything turned out brilliantly, and I will definitely use uship again in the future.

Great home removal

We moved from Spain to England, we are a family of 5 so we had LOTS of boxes. I googled home removals and got lots of companies, but all the quotes were very high. A friend told me about uship so I filled out the online form which was very easy to use and waited for responses, which were very fast to come in and quite varied. I saved over 1000 pounds using uship. Our service provider (Tomas Cisov ...

Moving Made Easy

With just about 60 miles of moving to do, uShip made my life a lot easier by helping me find the right movers, at the right price. I am sure to recommend uShip to my friends. Thanks, DH

Great house move from UK to Germany!

I needed to move my entire household from the UK to Germany, but regular removal companies were quoting exorbitant prices. I found uShip online and found a company that offered to do it for less than half the price most removers had quoted. They were very professional and I can only recommend uShip to everyone who is looking for a company with competitive pricing.

A la tercera va la vencida

Tras dos intentos fallidos de realizar mi envío con urgencia, sólo al tercero pudo ser satisfactorio. En esta página, desgraciadamente, hay algunas personas que no son honestas, pero a la tercera va la vencida, después de perder dinero que no sé si recuperaré. Aun así gracias por los servicios de Branston, que, sin duda, volveré a contratar, excelente en todo!

House Move

The guys were brilliant. Despite my house buyer stalling on me, creating delays, these shippers were excellent. I soon learnt that any stress caused by moving house was eased considerably by their patience, communication and understanding. They were early for both collection and delivery...when you consider they traveled 200 miles plus for each - that's impressive. Anyone wanting to move any g ...

Moving home

I moved home at very short notice and with a limited budget. The price I received as great and the service exceptional, no complaints what so ever. The Uship site was easy to use and saved me time, effort and money. This is the what I would use if I ever require a removal company again. The service provider could not have been more helpful and polite. The driver was very helpful and the vehi ...

Sehr gute Erfahrung mit dem Umzug meiner Möbel

Softps hat meine Möbel / Kisten wirklich sehr zuverlässig von München nach Aberdeen, Schottland transportiert. Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit seinem Service, seiner Erreichbarkeit bei Fragen und seinen Umgang mit meinen Sachen.

Brilliant experience moving house from UK to Germany

I'd had 3-4 quotes from mainstream shipping companies to move around 16CuM of household items from Glasgow to Bremen. Most of it was boxed, but there were some furniture items/white goods that needed professional packing. The best quote was £1850 +VAT (so over £2000 all in). I was going to go with that until I read some damning online reviews of that particular company (one even named the guy I ...

un déménagement vite fait bien fait

Définitivement le système fonctionne parfaitement! Plusieurs compagnies de déménagement m'ont contacté très rapidement( en quelques minutes) et au fur et à mesure que le temps passait les prix des devis diminués!j'ai je pense attendu vraiment la dernière limite pour faire mon choix et je n'ai pas été deçu!Un déménagement top et un prix défiant toute concurrence!entre 2 à 3 fois moins cher en comp ...

The job was done perfectly

This was a flat move from Edinburgh to Argyll for a family member who was relocating. Brett the service provider could not be faulted and the peace of mind of using uShip made it so much easier. Any moves from anywhere I will defo be back on uShip :)


They were late for both removal and deliveries but mostly for reasons that were not their responsibility, such as delay to cross the Channel and because of traffic jams in Paris. They made sure that this would have the smallest impact anyway, and were genuinely helpful.

Fantastic Service

The original van we took to Spain while moving house was not big enough for all the items. Having around half a van full left to take we used uship to request quotes. We immediately started to get quotes and the price quickly came down to a fair level. In retrospect I would have used uship in the first place and not taken a van down ourselves ! Ultimately we did not go for the cheapest quot ...

Positiv überrascht

Ich war zu Beginn sehr skeptisch und wollte den Transport selbst organisieren. Nun bin ich absolut überzeugt und würde immer wieder über uship einen Transport abwickeln.

Moving home

Finding Uship was a fluke. I had not heard of it but was moving my personal items overseas. I had had some extortionate quotes from other removal firms but thought I would give UShip a try. I saved (or rather my employer) saved significant amounts on my relocation and the Service Provider, whose bid I chose was excellent. IEPTransport were brilliant - helpful, careful with the packing and t ...

Moved boxes from Manchester to Soho

I found USHIP on line and gave it a go as I was not happy with the rates I was getting from local providers. I received a great quote and emails with some questions and decided to accept the offer 5 days before the move. Everything went smooth which was surprising as the delivery was in Soho a truly difficauly place to park and unload and load etc etc. All good

Several smallish items from Surrey to Edinburgh.

Moving from Weybridge, Surrey to Edinburgh I needed a part-load consignment rather than a complete move, as I am storing a lot of stuff in Surrey. Using Uship made perfect sense and I was lucky to get a reasonable quote within my timescale, in spite of the first Service Provider having to pull out. All my things arrived intact and at the agreed time, so I am sure that I will be using the service ...

great experience would highly recomend

moving all our household goods from Barcelona spain to dorset uk marin was excellent helpful communication was great we had lots of expensive camera equipment all arrived safely and in perfect condition we would use marin again any time we cannot thank him enough we had glass units and all household wares all arrived speedily and in great condition cannot fault the price ...

Great experience moving house!

Very impressed with the service and reasonable price for a student moving back home. Without an opportunity UShip provide, students like me would not be able to avoid expensive removal services in UK. The company is great, even though they are just starting out, with the excellent services they rendered, no iota of doubt that they will not only succeed but will excel. I shall definitely recommend ...

House move

I used a great company who made moving a easy experence. Uship is great to get competitive quotes and choose who you want.

Cynic but converted!

You see these web comparison sites but don't quite believe the cost effective quotes will deliver like the more familiar (high-charging) high street names. Truth is there are plenty of hard-working people who are prepared to do a great job at half the price. Just check the feedback carefully.

Great experience and saved money on my house removal

I used rsracers service provider via uship. I got a very competitive price and a great professional service. The removal company was on time and took good care of everything. I think I saved around £150 using uship. Thanks uShip. I will be definitely telling my friends and family about you.

Good sevice

I've been frauded by another transporter in Uship, the new one has recovered completely the situation. Thanks a lot

Very good service

Due to relocating I needed my belongings shipped from London to Austria. I was dreading the cost and complications of it but this service provider did not only a good job with the shipping, it was also very good value. I wasn't there to oversee the pick and delivery, but was told that the drivers were very helpful and friendly. The only slightly negative point would be that there wasn't much notic ...

Gute Erfahrung

Ich habe einen Umzug von London nach Sachsen fahren lassen und bin ingesamt sehr zufrieden. Es gab ein paar Verwirrungen wann der Tranport ankommen soll, aber alles ist wohlbehalten angekommen und selbst hätte ich den Umzug nie so günstig fahren können. Allerdings hat es zwei Anläufe gebraucht, da der erste Spediteur nie zu erreichen war. Aber das Team von Uship war sehr hilfreich und meine Anzahl ...

Top notch experience transporting my household goods -- 3 bedroom house.

The company I finally chose was spot on and totally professional. Having said that, there were cheaper bids from other transporters but like anything else in life -- when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Therefore, I used my commonsense and chose a provider who had feedback and offered a realistic bid, and I stayed clear of transporters bids who I knew couldn't physically do th ...
