Shipping My Bike

I was on a search engine trying to get a price on shipping my bike and found the Uship website. Initally I wasn't sure but after I listed my shipment in a few hours time I received bids and very competitive offers. I have now completed my first shipment and already told a lot of people about Uship. This is excellent service and easy to use.

Very impressed by your service, it could not have been simpler and any more efficient. The transport was first class and at a very good price. Delighted by the service

Shipping of vehicle

SCDELIVERY were chosen to transport a vehicle from Cumbria to Lincolnshire and although the weather was atrocious(snow and ice) they pushed on delivering my bike.Very professional and a great service.Highly recommended and uShip made it so easy.Thanks

My Motorbike Delivery

I bought a Yamaha 600 in London and was a bit worried of riding it all the way back to Norwich. I found the Uship site and placed my request on it. I received bids straight away. I was unsure of who to use but as you can read feedback it made me feel a bit more confident. I chose Vangoes who gave me an excellent price and service. I will be using Uship regularly for my future ebay purchases. Thank ...

short distance

Had a broken bike that needed shipped 150 miles. These guys were in the area and added the short trip into their schedule at what was little more than petrol money for the trip..They were punctual and the bike was well secured and cared for in the van..Pretty painless and easy. Definately recommend them.


The company had to wait for about 5 weeks. i think the seller had the item locked up and couldnt find the keys . never mind it went ok in the end.

great service exactly in time

it is always a bit tricky when you buy things on ebay ,but it is nice when have bought it that you can rely on a good shipper,thanks Regards Pier

Got loads of responses

Bought a motorbike. Was looking for someone to transport it and found Uship. Filling in the forms was a little time consuming but worth it. Got loads of interest and found the right man. Had it transported 36 miles. No problems. Great website and much more efficient than a ring around. Would use Uship again.

Positive experience

I was shipping an electric wheelchair from cheshire to glasgow. It was an ebay purchase and a difficult item to arrange normal delivery as most mainstream carriers wont deliver. Uship was great, although i wasn't able to find an accurate category to list the item. The quotes came thick and fast and when an offer was accepted, the communication was terrific/instant. Probably saved £50-60. Serv ...

trouble free transaction

I needed to get a motorbike 250 miles without breaking the bank so decided to try uship....a first time for everything. The bids came in and I was pleasantly suprised at how competitive the prices were. When I accepted the bid I wanted I was contacted very quickly asking for more specific details, times were agreed and the courier did the rest. I was contacted when the bike was picked up and again ...

good price and shipping

Good result for my first time of useing i am just waiting for bids for my second time hope that goes as well thanks bigbaz57.

uShip virgin.

Nervous as a hamster in a cattery in using an unknown service and carrier for my ZX9.Roddy Taylor was great and saved me a good few quid as well. If all the uShip registered companies are as good as Rod, then it looks like the place to find a carrier. Cheers.

My Guzzi

Woops I seem to have bought a 1981 Guzzi on ebay. Wife not exactly overjoyed but as it was not too much money she was understood a middle aged mans desire to own his first dream bike. Still I could'nt pick it up. Found uShip, filled in simple form. Two days later I had a quote £20 less than budget and the bike delivered on time next day. So thank uShip and Peter from Transitvans. I would us yo ...


Vangoes are faultless, they were cheap, mabe not the cheapest but caring, polite, carefull with the goods and gave plenty of notice too, cant fault them i just wish i had more bikes to sell so i could use them again .

Great experience of this service

I stumbled across this service trying to figure out how to ship a scooter from Oxford to Edinburgh and hoping to save myself the journey. I decided to give it a go and within a day I had accepted a very good bid. Over the next couple of days two or three phone calls completed the arrangements and a few days later it appeared at my door. Excellent. I would certainly use the service again.

First use on USHIP will be back again !!!

Needed my Sachs XTC 125 Supersport collecting from the Midlands and delivering to the South West I was a little apprehensive about using this site and having somebody that I have never spoke to face to face collect my goods but I decided to take the plunge and go for it I had a few bids from USHIP people and decided to accept one from CIDI (even though he had the lowest amount of feedback) he reas ...

Roddy fits the bill!!

Having arranged to buy a bike from a dealer in Kings Lynn my next task was to arrange transport to Scotland. Having never done this before I was concerned about who I could trust with my new bike. After receiving a bid from Roddy & reading his feedback I decided to accept his bid. Best choice I have ever made!! Having booked, I spoke to Roddy directly & explained when my bike would be available fo ...

Very impressed shipping a bike for the first time

I have never had to buy a bike and had to orginise getting it shipped by my self ,so when I googled a courier to do it and came up with uship I was a bit unsure to start . That feeling soon went out the door as uship was so simple to register and the fact you can link direct to ebay just made it easier to describe the bike etc to the shipping bidders. The feed back helped me feel confident that I ...

Motorcycle courier delivery

The website was not clear. If you enter your maximum amount couriers bid down to it so you don't get any lower offers. I cancelled my ad and re-listed when I realised. Once listed again with a lower maximum I got a quote straight away and the service I received from 'vangoes' was excellent. I would definately use Uship again, and recommend the site. Cheers guys. Colin

Shipping of my Yamaha 600.

I placed my bike on Uship as it was difficult to get my bike home once I had bought it. Using UShip took the pressure off me dong all the contacting and after making my profile Uship did the rest. Fantastic site easy to use and I had daily updates to keep me informed about the progress of my shipment. The courier I chose made an extremely competitive quote to bring my bike from one of the cou ...

My Experience

It was really easy finding someone to transport my bike from the West Midlands to Devon. I only logged into the site to see what it was all about and within just a few minutes had registered, placed the job online and had my first two quotes. It was quite amazing, even more so when I consider that it was actually around 9pm on a Sunday evening! I'll recommend uShip to my friends.


I wanted my bike transported from newcastle to cornwall,I recieved many bids,the one that shone above the rest was transitvans,peter was not the cheapest and this proves it,the cheapest is not always the best,in fact he was the dearest,and I specificaly waited for him to bid as his feedback was 100% 5star and had the highest bike feedback on the site,he was on time,my bike was looked after as if i ...

Shipping motorcycle from Belfast to England

I need to ship my new pride and joy to the South of England. I found UShip on a Google search and decided to give it a try. I had a few bids and decided to go with the best feed back score, who also happened to be the cheapest. From the point of accepting the bid, the communication was very good both with me and the transporter and also the transporter and the vendor. The bike arrived on time and ...

Bike delivery

The site was very easy to follow, bids started to arrive within the hour with most making an offer.For me the best offer came from scdelivery, Steve gave a date for delivery a great price and even turned up at 08:40 in the morning so I would call him in the future for anything that I need delivered.

Husky shipment

I had a Husky motorcycle shipped from Milton Keynes to Co.Kerry in Ireland. I found USHIP very easy to use and it has saved me a fortune as there is no way i could have collected the bike myself for the shipment cost i was given. The company i used were outstanding and i will be using them again. I look forward to using USHIP again in the future. Thank!!

First time user

I purchased a bike on internet and needed transport from England to Scotland. Found uShip on the net by accident. It proved to be a very useful service and easy to use after I got the hang of it. I will definitely use this service again if needed.

Bike transpot from London to Newcastle

This job involved the transport of an Aprilia scooter from London to Newcastle, which was originaly on ebay but failed to sell and was bought privately. Using a transport company was more appealing than flying or getting the train to London and riding it (a 125cc scooter) 300 miles back! I was sceptical about the Uship concept at first but I had a some quotes of around £175 for the job and thought ...

Honda VFR800

I was having a bike I'd bought on e-bay shipped from Bradford, West Yorkshire to Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire. I found uship an excellent tool as it saved me £70 and the service I received by my transporter couldn't have been bettered by anone - certainly not by a more expensive company. My bike arrived promptly in perfect condition and only the day after I posted my ad, so really pleased with the ...

Delivery of Lambretta to be Restored.

I required a 1960 Lambretta to be restored by a dealer but cant find one north of scotland. I used Uship to transport my scooter to a dealer in London. The service was great and saved me time and money. Thanks.

Classic scooter transport

1966 Vespa transported carefully and economically from London to Preston. uShip is a great service. I will definitely be using this service again. People bid for your business !!! Great!!!!

shipping a motorbike

Uship was v useful: I got several quotes within 24 hours - helpful, as I had no idea what the going rate was. Biketrans (Hotwheels) offered the most competitive price, and absolutely first rate service - they weren't based in either the collection or delivery town, so I wouldn't have thought of trying them without uship.

motorbike shipped to spain

i was completely green to this site, i negotiated well and the outcome was exactly what i was looking for, i would use it again, the transport company i used had 0 feedback but i spoke to the owner which did give me some confidence, the vehicle was clean and tidy as was the driver, although 0 feedback may put some people off, i thought it could go 2 ways yes they could be bad but also they could t ...

great idea

i was looking at gbp 125 from a 'specialist' bike moving company then I spotted yours and a few minutes later the bids were coming in. A great idea that works fantastically well and saved me 40 quid in a matter of minutes. Will definitely use you in the future, I now feel that transporting stuff will not be such a headache in the future. Great idea and good luck.

Good Service

did what was expected, fitting in with the storage people in France and transporting the bike safely.


uShip proved to be reliable and trustworthy. I'd never heard of uShip before, but after delivering my mobility scooter for just £1, I wouldn't hesitate recomending them to anyone.
