Transporte desde Holanda a España

El transporte se ha realizado con 2 días de retraso, aunque la mercancía ha llegado en buen estado. Ha sido imposible comunicarse con el transportista, se le ha llamado por telefono y enviado sms varias veces y no ha atendido al telefono ni ha contestado, lo que ha causado muchas preocupaciones. Por parte de Uship, tampoco hemos recibido el trato deseado. Solo se han relacionado con nosotros vía e ...

Roland shipped an antique china cabinet from Edmonton to Grande Prairie for me. He ran into horrible road conditions and his vehicle broke down on a Sunday in Fox Creek. The cabinet arrived in perfect condition at a very reasonable price, only 1 day late! I saved about $500.00 by using uShip.I would recommend Roland's service to anyone.

Sattley Engine

My engine arrived in good condition. Communication between service provider and myself was not so good. But it did get here and I thank them for delivering it safely. I believe uship is a good way to ship large items. The lowest bidder gets the job and the money saved is a lot because other bids were exceptionally high. I also know it is cheaper than driving 28 hours to go get it myself. With the ...

Anitque rocking chair

Our chair was shipped from North York Ontario and travelled out the west coast before arriving in central Alberta. Our carrier drove through bad weather, bad health and a short mechanical malfunction. He kept us informed the whole way. We knew where he was and what was going on. He was always pleasant and when our chair arrived safe and sound we couldn't have been more pleased. Hats off to Jo ...

Console Stereo

I live in a small city iNorthwestern Ontario Canada. A passion of mine of late has become antique stereo consoles. It is certainly not an easy go finding these in my little city. That's why UShip is so great! Not only can I find these majestic consoles, now I can afford to ship them to my home!

Antique Curved Glass China/Curio

UShip provided the solution to my shipping problem of a family antique. Other shipping options were proving too costly, but the thought of doing it myself with my elderly father in tow were overwhelming. Thank you for an excellent alternative at a reasonable cost.

Gute Resonanz auf Angebot

Es war das erste Mal, dass ich ein großes, antikes Möbelstück durch eine Sammelspedition transportieren lassen wollte. Diesen Auftrag stellte ich bei verschiedenen entsprechenden Foren ein. Die Resonanz, also die Menge der Angebote, war bei uShip weit höher als bei allen anderen Foren. Hier erhielt ich in kurzer Zeitspanne gleich mehrere interessante Meldungen von Transportunternehmen. Letzt ...

old cabinet radio

U-Ship is a valuable service that will save you tons of money. think of travelling states away when you can hire a person who carries other things and can carry yours too.

Seth Thomas Tower Clock

I bought a very heavy clock from a live auction in New Hampshire and I had to get it to Ohio. I had never used U-Ship before and I wanted to give it a try. Within 24 hours I had about 5 bids on my shipment. I booked one and my clock was delivered safe and sound.

1940's Custom Kay upright bass Psychobilly/Rockabi

Just had my 1949 upright bass shipped to Alameda with uShip and it was great. I save $300 in freight costs. Childs was a great shipper. He made my item a personal responsability and I never had a doubt. I recommend him to anyone shipping in Las Vegas, Az, and California.

Collection & delivery of an antique display cabinet

I'd seen an antique cabinet on ebay and as it was in Pickering I thought I'd never be able to get it. I then saw the uShip advert at the bottom of the page so set that up, accepted a quote and I now have my lovely cabinet. The Courier has been absolutely brilliant - really quick and efficient and nice to deal with. I couldn't be happier.

the service provider on arrival to collect the wardrobe and combined chest of drawers was told it had to be dismantled which he duly proceeded to do.this was a very large item and cannot praise landmark express enough for his attitude and devotion for the service he provided.

Furniture moved from Devon to Berkshire

I buy a fair bit of stuff on ebay and can't always get it myself.I found uShip a useful tool which I will use again.

The heaviest fireplace ever

According to my Service Provider, who's transported a few, this (an Art Nouveau cast iron fireplace) was the heaviest he's ever carried. I am renovating a late Victorian property and needed it shipped from North Yorks to Cambridge. A fantastic transaction from start to finish and the fireplace will look wonderful when installed.

Great Travels for an Antique Horse Drawn Sleigh

After winning the auction on an antique horse drawn sleigh, we faced the burden of getting it delivered from Ohio to Connecticut. The Seller suggested we try uShip. We listed the item and within the hour had several affordable shipping options to consider. The system allowed us to have dialogue with potential shippers and make our decision with ease. The entire system was user friendly and we ...

My shipping nightmare and rescue by USHIP and JDX

Working with USHIP and this company JDX was an extremely positive experience.I purchased an antique chest at auction then discovered I needed to find my own shipper to pick it up from New York to bring it to New Orleans! After a great deal of panic looking at websites and talking to shipping services and facing a major monetary loss and damage to my reputation with a fine auction house I found USh ...

Thanks PennAntique!

My experience with PennAntique was very positive. The owner was very prompt and courteous answering emails and phone calls. The two guys who made the delivery were great. They arrived within the timeframe as promised despite bad weather.They placed the cupboard and were back on the road in 30 minutes or less. I would happily reccomend PennAntique.

Heavy Mirrored sideboard

Henry is the BEST! He and his partner were in constant communication and took the time to explain the process and the item to me. They had my best interests at heart and even inspected the item for damage before they carefully blanket and shrink wrapped it for the safe and secure move. It was gingerly moved up and into my apartment without a scratch on it. I am so happy I had them help me out. The ...

Perfect Timing

I needed something to be picked up right away, and my service provider responded quickly with a very reasonable bid. Both pick-up and delivery timing worked out perfectly. I saved so much money--and time--over using a big name moving van lines to move furniture for just one room. I would definitely use uShip and my provider (freebird69) again.

1860 Rosewood Bed

Uship is a great way to find a reputable shipper at your convenience. I use "Feedback" ratings when choosing a shipper. If the shipper has any Negative Feedback or insufficient Feedback, I will move on to someone else that is squeaky clean....even at a higher price. I primarily ship antique furniture that is delicate and requires special care. This is the reason that Feedback ratings are so import ...

The sale and delivery of a pine hutch.

I had been searching for a way to get a piece of furniture from Tupelo, MS to Industry,TX at a reasonable price. After talking with several firms that wanted more than the customer paid for the piece to deliver it is when I began surfing the webb. When I came across uShip I gave them a try and rest is history. It was a smooth and seamless experience. Seller is happy and the customer is hap ...

Mike brought a table and chairs from San Antonio to Los Angeles for me. The pick-up person praised his reliability and everything arrived safe and sound. He was great. Thank you!!

No fees!

I tried uShip having had no success finding a courier who could deliver at the weekend through Shiply, a courier search website I had previously used. I managed to get a courier at very short notice (10pm on a Friday night before delivery on Saturday). The delivery service I received was very good and antique furniture arrived safe and on time, with good communication from the courier throughout ...

Shipping of an antique stained glass window

We won a very large and very old stained glass window on ebay from someone who lives in Ohio and wasn't able to ship it for us. The seller recommend uship to us. At first it was a little confusing because we started getting bids right away and weren't sure how long we should wait to accept a bid but after a few days we realized we pretty much received all the bids we were going to get for our jo ...

First rate service

Antique bed shipped from Essex to Inverness. Arrived well looked after with very friendly service. Definitely would recommend.

I needed an extremely fragile musical instrument shipped from Minnesota to Ohio. I was unaware of white glove service, but it helped me get my upright bass safely to my house with out a hitch, forklift, crate, pallet, loading dock, 18 wheeler, or a minute of lost sleep. Without uShip and their feedback system, I would have been unable to connect with and trust Steve Mulder, who delivered my bass ...

Antique sleigh base.

I was worried at first about shipping it and using uship. But now I am glad that I did. Shane Fitzpatrick was GREAT!!!!! Thanks, Cam

mecca for rehabber

Although I was highly motivated to complete this transaction on my own the last minute fix ups on my truck and the low gas milage could not have been beat by this UShip driver's low bid. He saved me from paying storage fees by his timely acceptance of my bid which would have barely covered my gas costs. Talking with the person who was getting angry with me for waiting so long before making the pic ...
