The new market for "below market rates"

Our company has been using USHIP for some time now. Due to the volume we ship we usually use a dedicated broker. Sometimes we will need to ship a commodity where the price doesn't come even close to what we have budgeted for the shipment. This is when we quickly turn to USHIP to solve our logistical nightmares. USHIP has never let us down and we recommend the service to everyone we know as wel ...


Was able to communicate back and forth until we had everything worked out so that the trucker was able to bid. GREAT WEBSITE

A Great Experience !!

I would like to thank your company for a great shipping experience. I have dealt with other companies and I have been very disapointed with them. thank you for a job well done!!!

Good experience on my first large shipment.

I had to ship 72 pallets of books plus heavy shelving and office equipment. As I found out, good help is hard to find (in regards to loading and unloading shipments). But the shippers that I booked with uShip were great! They were very understanding, patient, and lighthearted - despite my many blunders. They also were very experienced and helpful. Taught me how to work a forklift correctly ...

Trade show furniture

Needed my Vegas Trade show furniture back in my St. Louis Office. Itmes picked up at Nevada location and delivered this morning in perfect shape. The office has already re-assembled the chairs and they are now fighting over them.

Great experience shipping our empty 40' container.

We had a couple last minute changes with pick up & delivery dates & times but JSL Family Trucking remained professional and untroubled by our changes.

Excellent experience shipping my freight

Wow, wish I had known about UShip along time ago. Man I can't believe how Smooth and Fast a shipment this was and the cost was a real Bargain. Uship lined me up with several Excellent shippers all offering Great Rates. This is free enterprize at its best. If you need an item or freight shipped, this is the place to come and meet shippers and book a shipment. I'll use UShip everytime from now on wh ...

Great experience shipping security cameras

This is my first experience with uShip and it was terrific. I listed the cameras I needed picked up and delivered to me. The bids came in and I asked the two lowest bidders some questions and received prompt responses. I chose one and he had the shipment picked up earlier than I thought it would be (wonderful) and delivered two days later at my door ahead of my scheduled requirement for deliver ...

You are innovators

Thanks for starting this service, you are the definition of innovation and efficiency. Let the free market do it's thing and get out of the way. For a small business owner who is just starting off, saving money on shipping goes a long way to getting established and maybe someday hiring employees. Thanks again

Forklift Move from branch to branch location

Put my job up for bid and 18 hours later the job was done. Excellent service, reasonably priced and QUICK. Best thing about Uship is that the people are very professional and easy to work with!

too heavy for ups, uship changes everything,

I sell Blowers on ebay, my only source for shipping has been usps and ups, never fedex( too spendy), then i descouvered uship, I was looking for a trucking company thet would take a ltl load (less then load) I needed to ship 300 lb pallet back east, after signing up for uship I was able to list the load and receive bids for shipping and they where more then resonable. I chose the best deal out of ...

Fiberglass Horse arrived safe and sound!

This was a shipment of a life-size horse replica from AZ to IA. The horse was delivered to a nonprofit therapeutic horsemanship program, where it will be used to help kids with disabilities learn how to harness a horse (for carriage driving). Uship saved us over $600 compared to the quote we got from a major third-party logistics provider. On top of the cost savings, UShip provided outstanding se ...

Crane shipment

1st time user, shipped some cranes across the country. Rates were excellent. I am recomending this site to friends and business associates.

i bought a truck seat from a guy i lasvegas that i did'nt know,paid him upfront 500.00,listed it for transport to phoenix,had a few bids,accepeted one,from rchotshot,paid a booking fee and contacted rchotshot,got the run around for a month,listed it again and again rchotshot bid,thought no way,contacted him and he said oh yea i'm gonna get to that right away,i waited for another bid and got one ,a ...

Another great Uship experience!

Shipper picked up a huge, heavy safe (66" high x 60" wide x 50" deep) in Pennsylvania and delivered it to me in Atlanta Georgia. Price was excellent ($300!!!) and service was superb! He unloaded it in my warehouse and helped me get it on a pallet so I could move it easily. Even sent me a picture of it sitting on his trailer when he picked it up. Fourth time I have used uShip. All the ot ...

Shipped unusual equipment - they handled it fine!

Good service. Kept in touch so I always knew what was going on. Was able to work with me through customs, etc. Product arrived on time, trucker was friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend provider and use the service again.

Outstanding experience shipping a large piece of machinery

I am just starting out in the metal fabrication business and bought this piece of equipment to help me get started. I admit I was nervous at first about using your service with so much at stake. My equipment was shipped on-time and without any problems, plus I saved a lot of money (65% off quoted price from broker). I would recommend this service to anyone. Thanks Uship.

Shipping a 20' Shipping Container

Great experience thanks to Jeff/Vicki, only had a little trouble when it started to snow. All worked out well.

The Shipping of an 800lb Shop Table

In my perusals of Ebay for the purpose of expanding my operations as a start up business, I discovered the perfect shop table. All other tables listed were feeble in comparison. This shop table is the definition of heavy duty, and fit all of my requirements for such a table, and additionally, can fit in my work space. I had to have this table. I called local fabrication shops to see if they co ...

Great service

Josh delivered a very arge load of natural stone for me which required the use of a soft wheel fork lift. His operating skill were great, his trailer was more than adequate and his $ value for service exceeded my expectations.

shipping my Leister hot air welder

I appreciate having a service such as uShip. I purchase a lot of items through auction sites like ebay. Often they may be large or bulky items from sellers that do not have the facilities, tools or knowledge to pack them for shipment by a traditional freight carrier who often requires that items be palletized. uShip allows me to find a service provider that can ship those items without those type ...

Box of scientific instruments .

Picked up freight on time...I thought it was located in a usual business warhouse commerical district....Turned out to be a barn at a ranch out of town...No problem, they got job done on time with excellent results.

Courteous, prompt, professional. Would definitely use them again.

Shipped a single pallat for a fraction of the cost of using UPS or US Mail. Very easy compared to going to post office or UPS.

Load discription

When the truck arrived on site for the shipper to load my purchased containers the trailer height was too tall for a normall load method. The trucking company and the shipper spend a great deal of time unloading and reloading until the got all the container loaded legal. Lesson learned. Make sure about ALL trailer information, and load information.

Car Chassis

This was a difficult load. A little to big for fork lifts, needed extra handling. Uship made it all possible.

Great experience using this service

I needed to ship a large quantity boxes from the west coast to the east coast. Decided to google the web for shipping companies. I came across uShip. It was fast, easy and the responses were good. I was able to get 3 bids in about 2 days. The company I picked was on several factors. Price, communication, and pickup date. This company met all my needs. I had all my boxes shipped out that sa ...

Excellent experience.

Bought items on eBay. Looked for shipper and called for pricing thru several national compainies. Got several quotes from companies that did not understand request. Used Uship to list and had good bids from knowledgeable shippers. This made it easy to choose a qualified shipper. Thanks

Uship solved our problem.

The service provider saved us a 1400 mile round trip in dangerous winter driving conditions. Our cost about $200. Our savings? .... go figure!!!!


I had a wide load that no one could accomodate in the time I needed, but lucky for me I bumped into uship and found a great company that handled all my needs and demands. From now on, this is the way to go when I have a crazy request!!

Bounce house fun

I bought 12 bounce houses for party rentals from all over the country. I had to get them delivered from 5 different states and Uship allowed me to get bids almost immediately from several companies. James picked up our jumps from MO and had them in NM within just a couple days. Now I just have to decide who I want to get the rest. What a great service. Now thousands of kids will be happy in A ...

First Time User

Company did a great job shipping my excavator from Oregon to Az, on time, dependable, they all sounded real business like, would use them again

Prompt shipping of Crates

I was looking for transport of crates. Within 2 business days I had a contract and within 72 hrs had my shipment.

Extremely helpful - WILL USE ALWAYS

I bought a 175 C dozer. This was a step-up from my Ford farm tractors. Of course, the item was used and without manuals. On top of that we live on a small country road and Rob, the trucker, was not going to be able to swing his 55 foot trailer into our drive. So, we unloaded it on the road and then had to chain lift a 2000lb Woodsman brush attachment and get it up a muddy, wet drive onto ...

Shipment of crated winch 210 lbs Portland Or to Dothan Al

I put an ad up with photo looking for someone to bid on shipping a crated winch for me. I included a photo along with dimensions and weight. I got 3 bids within the 1st day, all with good feedback. I asked questions to each bidder, and received answers from all. I selected a freight forwarder who was excellent and he set up the job with the trucking company. There were no issues. The broker was ex ...

Shipping our WINCH wakeboard towers for UtahWaterToys

UtahWaterToys had a great experience with UShip worthy of high commendation. The driver was in constant contact with us regarding our shipment of custom WINCH brand wakeboard towers from California to Utah. Our shipment came out here quickly and they provided excellent service and it was less expensive than UPS or FedEx freight or any other freight carrier for that matter. Best of all our towers a ...

Trencher implement shipped A-okay

I bid on a trencher attachment for my tractor through eBay, but was concerned about getting it to me. I was skeptical to entrust any private party with this piece of equipment - not so much because it was so delicate, more that something would happen to it en route. Not ONLY did my shipper's bid come in nearly $600 less than the nearest commercial bid, but he was there to pick the trencher up fr ...

Walk in cooler with very cold results

Well to start I sold a walk-in cooler to a guy in IL. Set up the shiping thre Uship and then met Steve (dothemilez) well we got it loaded after about 4 hours. Steve heads to IL. gets there before schedule and then calls and tells me that this guy cant unload because of some all of a sudden broken ribs. Now this guy told me he mailed me a check on 2/6/09 and as of today 2/12/09 still have not recie ...

worked out just fine

worked as stated no issues some fine points could be better but the bottom line I got a fair deal so was most important issue. shipped faster than I expected

Great acre by carrier

Provider took great care in transporting the piece (an antique business machine), purchased on eBay. Communication with carrier was excellent.

Unload Bridgeport Mill

Went out of his way to assist in the unloading of a large Bridgeport Mill without the use of a forklift. Was very well prepared with great level of demonstrated experience in his work. Was confident in his ability and his communication was good. I will definitely offer any future jobs to him first prior to listing.

Control Room Delivery....Great Cooperation

U Ship provided us with timely bids and a vast selection of shippers.....and everything worked great. We built a customized Crusher control room in a 40ft high cube shipping container. We made arrangements for pick-up.....but found some problems with the computer system at the final check-out and testing......we needed to reschedule, in order to allow time to upgrade the computer, and make wiri ...

neither sleet nor snow...

I ordered some party rental equipment from a repo comapany and used Uship to get bids. Jimmy had positive reviews and a good price so I went with him. When he arrived for the pick up, unfortunately the repo company wasn't ready and was unwilling to help Jimmy get on his way. At his expense, Jimmy rearranged his schedule and hung in there while the repo company went on some weird power play. (yo ...

Shipping two warehouse rolling ladders

Quite honestly this is one of the best business transactions I have engaged in, in the last five years. From the bidding process all the way through to the point where I received the two very large rolling ladders at my door, the process was fantastic. Using UShip in conjunction with eBay, is a guaranteed money saving experience. I recommend UShip, completely.

Great experence shipping an ebay item

Bought 100 new computer cases on ebay. Being that the cases were 1100 miles away. And weighed 2000 lbs the cost of shipping almost out weighed the cost of the cases. Using uship I was able to post the load with them and take bids from many shippers. I got a lot of bids. Then after about 3 days. just before I was ready to commit to one of the 3 bids that were within my budget i received an offer f ...

First Time User

We found this site and it was very helpful to find shippers, evaluate bids, and ultimately saved a lot on freight costs. Being patient is important. Waiting a couple weeks saw dramatic reduction in bids. The first bids were 2-3 times higher than the later ones.

Pitching machine

Thanks Ken, great guy to work with.. day or night he delivers...Helped load and unload and after we came inside to finish business we sat down and had dinner..... thanks again DandDoDrive .. USHIP THUMBS UP

More control to the person buying

This site is great, it allows the person purchasing the freight to have more control on what they want to spend. Also everyone seems to commnuncate wonderfully, which is a plus when you have a freight item out there on the roads, you know when to be at your shop to expect delivery.

auction shipment

We had hoped to win more items on an internet auction, but just one pallet wasn't worth our hours on the road. Other than the first shipper backing out, this was a great way to find somebody to ship our small order.

great experience as usual

I've used uship 3 times with great success. The last shipment even arrived 2 days earlier than promissed. I will continue to use uship.com and will recomend to my friends. -Rob

Shipment went smoothly.

I was a little leary at first about using USHIP however it went very smoothly. Will use Uship again! The service providor Bob with Pacific Motor Service was great!
