Our transporter, Dave Forrest transport was truly superb. They stepped in after another transport ...

If you need something transported, Robert and Tonya White who are Road Coyote do a great job. They can move anything but specialize in moving aircraft. They are very nice folks who do a professional job for a reasonable price. I highly recommend them. Thanks again!

Aircraft wing skeleton, spar, ribs, skin

I learned of uShip just before I started watching Shipping Wars. When I bought an airplane wing, I immediately thought this might be the way to go. My uShip crew (corndogg) did an incredible job. He brought my wing and parts back from Arizona faster, cheaper, and safer than I could have done it myself. Need something shipped? Check it out.

Cost- and price-effective

I needed to arrange shipment of a plasma cutter and kit airplane from Grand Bay to Miami, myself being located in Namibia.

Small airplane, big job

I couldn't have asked for more from Bill of Southeast Transport. I had a small, single-engine plane that needed to be picked up from a hangar on a private residence, transported across four states, and delivered to an airport hangar.

Great experience shipping my airplane

I posted an auction for an airplane fuselage to be picked up in Texas and shipped to Delaware. I received an offer within 1 day that was extremely reasonable.

Great experience shipping my airplane

Bought an airplane outside of Chicago and needed to get it to Atlanta. Using Uship allowed me to get a much better deal than going through a commercial shipping company, I saved at least 50% if not more and I was able to set my own terms with the shipper who was flexible and easy to work with. Will definitely use Uship again when shipping anything out of the ordinary.

UShip saved me 4000 miles and a week of my valuable time.

I had no idea how I would transport an aircraft from OshKosh to Phoenix, Arizona. LTL shipping using common carriers just wouldn't work and put my Aircraft at significant risk at every transfer point.

I was also ab ...
