M35A3 Military Truck

I recently started a new hobby, and bought a surplus military M35A3 cargo truck off ebay. It had been released by the government and was in near new condition with only 5000 miles on it. I jumped on the chance to own this truck, not thinking how i would get it from West Virginia to California later...well I won the auction and the next step was to find a shipper. I searched the internet and came a ...

Riding mower

Any other method of shipment would have been way to expensive. Uship saved me a ton of money and time!

Tractor hauled in short order

Bought a tractor for my father, which turned out to be heavier than I could haul on my own equipment. Mike was able to help out quickly with the right equipment. When I couldn't get the thing started, he did both at pickup and delivery. He was able to haul the tractor in less than a week from when I started looking, and made it to a hard-to-find address on time.

Tractor shipping

I needed two tractors shipped from Lousianna to Texas. Put in the descriptions and destinations and the next day I had 4 bids. I picked a lower one with good feedback and had no issues. Thanks USHIP. I will definitely use your service again when needed.

First Time Shipper

I would have to say uship is a great way of finding shipping solutions. Prior to listing on uship I looked elsewhere (on the internet and local shippers) and found nothing but empty promises and unreturned phone calls! After listing on uship I had several quotes to choose from found one that was in my price range and the hauler it turned out is based about 45 minutes from my location and happend ...

great Work

Shipping Tractor from mount Airy NC to Ewing Va 240 Mi

His truck needed to stay in Idaho for a big repair, he latched on another one right away to to get our tractor here in N.Y. hor haying by Tuesday. What a trooper.He's ...

Shipping a tractor on implements

My in laws are moving from Michigan to Kentucky and my Father in Law has his dad's 1948 John Deere M farm tractor and implements. We were puzzled as to how we were economically going to get it there when one of my tractor blogs recommended uship.com. Posted the ad and in very short order had three bids. Actually my Mother in Law made all the arrangements and all went well. The tractor left Mic ...

Great experience shipping my tractor.

I was shipping a tractor out of Minnisota ... never done anything like this before for such a big ticket item ... normally the odd small item through ebay. Anyways, talked to the nice folks that had the tractor for a number of years.. I got a good feeling about them and the the tractor so I purchased it sight unseen. I put the tractor on uship ... I suggested that it be below a certain price and J ...

Great experience, no worry

For some reason my email response didn't go throurgh, David put great effort in seeing that this haul happened and went well. David delivered early and tractor was in great shape.

Great Service!

This is the first time I used USHIP. I shipped a large lawn tractor with an extra deck that I had stored in another city. The web site was informative and very easy to follow. The provider did an excellent job and my shipmnent arrived on time with no problems. Highly recommended!

Shipped John Deere model A

I had a John Deere model A to ship. I had called a number of well-known trucking companies to ship my tractor. All wanted a lot of money. So, I started searching the Internet. I found U-Ship. I needed to ship this old tractor from my uncle's farm to my house becasue I was going to restore it. It was tough for me to get the time off from work to do this myself, so I needed somebody to do it f ...

Armored Trucks in LA and Scottsdale

I was shipping used Armored trucks and they weigh 15,000 lbs each. Quotes were given from several brokers, I listed on uShip and had a match (several truckers) and gave the load within two days. I saved more than 25% and still paid a very good sum to the truckers. I plan on allways listing my loads here.

Entirely an Excellent Experience

Couldn't have been better...More than expected and if there were 10 stars we'd rate all 10...5 is not enough.

transport from Nc to Fl

that was the first time i use u ship and i was concern about hiring someone i did not know but finally the load came intact

No stress felt at all

No stress involed or felt when I had tractor delivered. I have had about 8 items thru uship with never a problem. They are the only carriers I use or ever will use.!!! Keep up the quality people you use and you will be no.1 in the U.S.A. SE ya

good experience

this is the first time i used Uship to find a service provider. i was able to moved my item very succesfully to the destination point. i w'll not hesitate to use again!

John Deere 310SG Backhoe

The Uship bid works perfect. I put in my request, within a couple hours I had 3 bids. I took the company that had the best feedback... and they had my backhoe at the drop off quickly. They are such nice people to deal with, calling me often to let me know how the truck was doing and when to expect the driver. I met the driver at the port, he had the backhoe unloaded and was waiting for me. The wh ...

Hesitant at first

This was my first experience using an online booking for shipping. I was a little reluctant given all the scamming stories about using the internet for what we accept as traditionally a local transaction (eg shipping equipment). However, I experienced the exact opposite. My shipper was down to earth and a guy you'd hang out with. Uship is an excellent way for individuals to protect themselve ...


I was fortunate enough to be given my Grandfathers 1944 John Deere B tractor to use since I am the oldest grandson. I was afraid shipping costs would not make it possible to get the tractor to me (900 miles). I was afraid to get my hopes up on the idea of this tractor making to my home. When the bids starting coming in I was surprised they were in my budget. Now that it's here, I am sending pictur ...

Thanks to uShip

I would like to commend uShip for providing a service that made a difficult shipment easy. I was having a hard time getting a shipper for an large, heavy vehicle until I used uShip. Quick response and easy coordination with shipper was helpful. Your website does a good job of keeping up with a shipment from start 'til now! Eric

freightliner tractor

uship saved my life, i got tired of finding a honest driver with a reasonable rate till i found uship in google.it was easy to list your ad and in minutes i started reciving offerswith different rate tell i picked one and i was lucky i had Chris who did an unbelievable job.what i like in uship is the drivers you deal with are verified by uship so you communicate with them without being afraid of s ...

Tractor Shipment

I bought a tractor in Columbia, SC and needed it shipped to Clifton Forge, VA. I placed an add and recieved two bids. I chose the higher of the two bids based on profile and feedback. I was not sorry, Larry did an amazing job at delivering my tractor. He kept me informed the entire way and was right on time. The shipment was well secured and gave me a feeling that there are still good shipper ...


Received a $400 bid for drive-away service and a $620 bid by applog for flat bed service for a dump truck going 150mi. to the Port of Miami. Accepted the bid by applog for flatbed service. However, I was notified AFTER vehicle pick-up by the SELLER of this vehicle that the vehicle was driven away. If the seller never notified me I would have never known. Also, I provided applog with drop-off and c ...

First Experience - Kubota Tractor

Overall my experience was phenomenal. I had 3 bids to deliver my tractor 520 miles one way, and the winning bidder was nearly what my cost would have been to pick up the load myself - not including my 15 hours of round trip drive time and equipment wear. I posted my shipment on Wednesday, and had the tractor in my driveway on Saturday! The trailer the driver used was as nice as my house - my tra ...

Uship Great Service

I needed to get a CAT skidsteer back home and was looking for a deal in the transportation. I heard of Uship from another friend, so I tried them out. Got several Bids on the shipment and one carrier tried extra hard to win my business. The price bidding is a great deal. It gives the shipper a sit back and see for the best price. Got a better deal than I thought I would. Experience was perfe ...

2 Tractors

We needed to ship 2 large tractors from Oklahoma to Illnois. JBTruckin handled the shipment. JB was perfect. He was professional and made a point to communicate with us. He showed up on time and did the shipment in the time he said. No damage, no whining--he just did the job and did it well. The price was great for the service--we saved about $1200 from a quote from a local carrier. I w ...

made the move easy

I contacted several moving companies before I found uShip.com. I was either told that my shipment was too small or too large. uShip made it very easy and I found a terrific mover.

AWESOME Experiance Getting MY Monster Truck Moved

HoboTomPurdy moved my Ford F250 Superduty with 3 feet of lift and 49" tires from IDAHO to Atlanta. What a great guy. Best price on the internet and communication was outstanding! THANKS TOM

Cross country tractor purchase

I bought a tractor in Virginia and found a shipper to bring it to Oregon. I was nervous about the process but it worked out well--at about 2/3 of the cost of a freight company. I'd do it again, though I learned that checking out the DOT credentials and references of the shipper is important.


Put excavator on at Uship at 10:00AM had a company pickup the machine the same day at 5:30PM and I had machine Thursday Night at 7:00PM 1700 miles excellent service Good Rate!

USMC expandible van 5-ton truck

Very patient driver; Pickup at USMC Barstow California was most difficult due to lack of co-operation and bad attitude of Government Liquidation site personnel. Driver resisted temptation to react to unprofessional treatment from GL and achieved the mission. Kept in contact with us throughout transit period and arrived precisely at the appointed time in Lynden, Washington.

Great way to get products moved.

You can't find a better price for shipping than with uship. When people are bidding to move YOUR item you just cant beat it. This is a great service. You don't have to go looking for someone to ship, they come to you. Love it!

Shipping my Unimog.

Well lets see where to start. First truck showed up and the person sell it couldn't load it and it may have been too tall, second truck showed up and the person selling provided a new update weight that was too heavy for the truck. Doh. 3rd truck was the charm. Only issue I had was somewhere between Ohio and Seattle someone siphoned off my fuel. :(

SwiftTransport was on time, excellent communication at all times,picked up when he said he would,delivered quickly and on time!excellence all around,recommend his service to anyone! I am amazed at the ease and fast response to my advertisement for a shipping service needed.will use again as needed!

I had a great experience with Jeff

RetiredJeff was the best uShip experience I had, it was the mirror opposite of the initial experience I had with a uShip member that I met through uShip. While my experience with Jeff was a very good one as he went above and beyond what I expected, this doesn't change my thoughts that uShip needs to to do a better job in the process collecting information and validating the service providers on h ...

Upfront Mower delivery

Have used UShip one other time to deliver a mower deck---both providers I have used were very reasonable, with speedy service and great communication. Thanks again UShip and your great providers Herman Davis Joan Parente

Nice Job

Transporter did a nice job of delivering my truck within the time frame specified and kept me informed of the status of the shipment from pick up point to the delivery point.

What a great concept!

Going directly to the big shipping companies was turning out to be a very expensive ordeal. I searched on the internet and contacted many freight companies, forwarders, even the rail road. They all wanted an extreme amount of money to ship my tractor. I was about to give up and drive my own truck and trailer from Texas to Colorado and back when I discovered uShip, and boy am I glad I did. I ...

Tractor with loader and backhoe

I purchased a tractor on an ebay auction. The tractor was located around 600 miles away. I used uship to check prices on having the tractor that has a loader and backhoe on it delivered. I recieved some bids and accepted one that had a good price and great feedback. The deal was made and the shipping crew went to get the tractor. While trying to load the tractor, the tractor was having problem ...

Honda Tractor

Made my first purchase on eBay. Purchased a Honda Tractor Mower in PA and I live in GA. Seller suggested uShip and I used them. Cost effective and professional. Will use the next time for sure.

Tractor from there to here

Fast, accurate and complete. I saved about 40% off other prices qouted. I received shipment within two days of posting the job. I would use the service again.

Moving a tractor

With the price of gas what it is today it was very important for me to get the tractor as close to my location as possible. Del was able to get it to my driveway. Thanks Lou



excellent service by shipping provider

I contracted with Matt Jorstad to move my backhoe. He was reasonable, on time and kept in constant contact with me before, during and after the transport and made my delivery on time and in perfect condition. I felt at ease with his professionalism. His equipment was in beautiful new conditon. You won't be sorry if you use his service. I couldn't have moved it more reasonably myself. I will be us ...

From Fla. to La...no worrys

Drove 11 hours in the rain, dealing with a uncooperative seller, securing load properly and delivering it earlier than expected.. a VERY pleasant deal...U-SHIP can be proud to have him on their team....

96 F-450

I tried to have my 16 foot rollback shipped for several weeks with no luck. received a quote through u-ship, made contact with the shipper and everything went flawless thereafter. If it weren't for u-ship, I'm not sure I would have found someone to ship a truck this size on my own.

Blue knight

This guy deserves an A plus. He communicated with me at all times and I never worried about the delivery at any point.
