Muy buena experiencia enviando mis piezas artísticas

Todo correcto, transportista involucrado con su trabajo. Volvería a utilizar este método de transporte de mercancías.

worked as promised

This is my 1st experience w/ uShip. Shortly after accepting a bid from uShip, my daughter Googled uShip & read me a collection of horrific reviews that made me worry about whether or not my shipment would work out. With only a minor broken piece of my bronze planter, my experience was positive. I reside in Moscow, Russia & enjoy following & ocassionally bidding in online antique auctions. Sh ...

3 small framed paintings

If Kenny can deliver fragil oil paintings in perfect condition, he can deliver anything. Big, big thank you Kenny.

Cast Concrete Statue with separate base

OK, it wasn't life or death, but Richard Cass delivered a concrete statue of a little boy from Philadelphia to Boston, and treated it as his own. Even the recipients loved his delivery style and willingness to help with its placement. Thanks for a great job with a task I'd dreaded!

Art Michigan

If you are shipping paintings across country try put your job out for bids and you can quickly get a much better rate than any other services I have used.

Art boxed

After the 1st shipper backed out leaving me in a bit of a spot, the 2nd, Bubba from HiltonHead Shipping was excellent.


Spediteur war prima, leider wurden aber von uship die von mir eingesgebenen Infos zu Abholung und lieferung nicht an den Spediteur weitergegeben. Das bedeutete ärgerliche Mehrarbeit.

Large Fiberglas football sculptures

I had two giant art fiberglass footballs that needed to be delivered from New Orleans to Louisville, KY and it went GREAT! Great price and great shipper!

muy buena experiencia transporte España/Holanda

Contraté a Degligor, un transportista con excelente tratp y atención al cuidado que requería el envío. Todo llegó puntualmente y en perfecto estado.

two crates of framed artwork

I love watching shipping wars and when I found myself needing some heavy crates of artwork shipped, I thought of U-Ship. Glad I tried it. It was worth the small amount of work to set up the process. I had a great experience with Father and Son. They were on time and took great care of my items. I would use Father and Son again if I find myself in need of shipping again and I would use U-Ship a ...

Move Brooklyn, NY to Evansville, IN

Thank you to Cardoza Trucking! I can't thank Rachel and Augi enough! They made an extremely difficult time actually pleasurable! I was dealing with what felt like insurmountable challenges, including the deterioration of my heart condition. They were a powerhouse, moving art like my 9/10 ft mahogany doors! And in that, they lifted a great weight from me, so that I could focus on my health an ...

déplacer des tableaux

Je suis artiste. Mon atelier est dans le sud, mes galeries à Paris. Je dois faire des aller retours avec les tableaux pour des expos, il me fallait une solution autre que de le faire moi-même. Je suis ravie d'avoir trouvé UShip ! Service top !

Amazing experience shipping my artwork

I'm a Canadian Artist and for the first time I had been asked by a gallery in Phoenix, AZ to ship 9 pieces of my bas-relief paintings to their gallery. Great news, until I started investigating shipping options - what a nightmare! The prices were huge and the service unexceptional, I nearly gave up and almost called the gallery back to cancel, when I stumbled upon UShip. Within minutes I had my ...

large framed photo

gabriel was the best. Bought my first piece of art, then needed to figure how to get it safely home. Heard of Uship and I could not have been happier with the provider I chose.

Oil On Canvas Crucifixion of Christ Old World Pain

Uship Rocks! Timely delivered great communication reasonable transport and great packing. Nice folks do exist! Will do business again!

large painting

great service! James Conner, of Connershipping, is a gentleman and he is dependable. I trust him completely with my delivery needs. Uship is the way to go.

6 Ink Jet prints on canvas

I do high end fine art printing for artists and others and need someone to occasionally transport prints to a client. I find Fedex and UPS costly so discovering U-ship is a real find. I expect not only to use it again for transporting prints but perhaps for other kinds of items as well. It is a really excellent service.

Sunrise Framed Painting

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE USHIP -- and PROVISION --- they were the TOTAL BOMB -- 5 Star Communication, 5 Star Shipping, 5 Star Follow up! Go Doug!

Horse sculpture

Nice man, great service. I was unfamiliar with U-Ship until we attempted to ship a large sculpture to display at a hospital benefit. Steve is very efficient and this is a wonderful website and service. Thank you all! The children thank you.

shipping from uk to Greece

ebcargo were helpful and sorted out insurance for my artworks to be sent to Greece, this was good because original artworks are difficult to insure; looking at the details of the insurance policy I realized they had worked around this by insuring the package as Art prints, a clever work around which I will be employing myself in future to send my shipments direct with the courier which is of cours ...

shipment from LA to Denver

My brother was shipping precious cargo to me. Paintings by my deceased father. Rick is fabulous. He kept in contact and arrived right when he said he would. He carefully wrapped the paintings and there wasn't a scratch on anything. It's wonderful to know there is someone with his honestly and work ethic out there.

Great Experience

I needed to ship several large framed paintings back to the artist. My experience with uShip was great. I saved several hundred dollars using uShip and would highly recommend them. My service provider was prompt, courteous, and professional. I would use uShip exclusively in the future.

Shippng a crate with artwork to my galley in the US

I am a Canadian artist based in Toronto. Occasionally I need to ship my large scale oil paintings, framed, to my dealer in SF. I built this crate that was 88"x60"x16" to put 6 large painting inside. Through Uship I was able to accept a bid from Jones LTL who are brokers for several carriers. The carrier in this case was YRC inc. The driver who picked up the crate was very experienced, he was able ...

New to uShip

So far, our experience with uShip has been great. The bids we received were significantly lower than the quotes from many of our local shippers. We are in constant need to transport delicate antiques, so we are very cautious when it comes to shipping. The shipper we used was very efficient and fast and we will continue to use uShip in the future.

Shipping my artwork

I needed large delicate mosaics made of Plexiglas shipped from Ashland,Oregon to L.A. California after a show. Seattledriver gave me a great price, and "delivered" on all their committments (pun intended!). They're fair minded, eager to please, and seem to have quality at the forefront of their business. This is my first time using Uship, and I really like being able to post my shipping needs a ...

Very convenient for busy people

I had limited time to search for a shipper for getting some art pieces imported recently. The art pieces arrived at a warehouse and they were heavy. I found this site and listed my shipment and within minutes I got bid. The site texts promptly and I selected a provider who promptly and seamlessly completed the job. Who need yellow pages?

Mountain Transport art shipment

I searched & searched for an art-shipper reasonable rates to bring a piece from Mill Valley, CA to Seattle. Could not find one to fit my budget--even close to it! A friend steered me to uShip. It was easy to place my item up for bids & I got several. The reviews for Mike & Mountain Transport were overwhelming positive, his rates were excellent, and he thoroughly answered my several inquiries befo ...

painting shipment

i had a painting shipped from nc to ny and it was a super great experience!!! it arrived quickly and with special care. i couldn't be happier

Shipping a huge fragile painting

Local couriers quoted £180 and £160 plus VAT for this job. I was reluctant to use one of the big national carriers as the painting was extreemly fragile and needed very careful handling. Thanks to uShip I was able to find a specialist art/antique carrier to do the job for £74 including VAT and insurance. The painting arrived at its destination safely within 24 hours of collection. I would use uShi ...

Great experience, saved me time and money with personalized service

I had to ship a large sculpture that wouldn't fit in a car or a minivan. Delivery with a rented truck would have been too expensive and shipping through major companies like UPS and FedEx was impossible due to size, and building a crate would have tripled the weight as well. When I looked into uShip, I was amazed to find that I could select to ship un-packaged objects because that's what I would h ...

Custom signs shipped fast

Customer needed an interior sign package shipped in time for a TV shoot. Express Air come thru just in time

No problems with one of a kind art work

Jeff carefully delivered artwork from Denton, TX to Cleveland, OH as promised. One piece is multimedia on canvas and very sensitive to movement. The piece arrived EXACTLY as shipped from TX 4 days earlier. Jeff is great. Highly recommended!

Misleading "Deposit", Questions and Answers

One suggestion that we have is to make to Uship is that it should be clearer to the person accepting the bid that the "deposit" that Uship charges is NOT going to the shipper. This was not clear from the webpage on which the deposit is charged. This causes a misperception about how much the shipper is making on the shipment since the deposit seems to count towards the shipper's bid. It is fine if ...

U-Ship was perfect

I had been looking to ship a vespa from PA to FL and a large piece of art work from FL to PA. All the specialty shippers (motorcycles, art work) were expensive, not necessarily helpful, and every time we wanted to get a bit we had to go through the entire process of describing the items, their weight, size, etc. We had looked into shipping these items many times but always gave up due to frustra ...

Large framed glazed picture

Head was bursting trying to figure out which Couriers would do a collect/wrap/deliver a large-ish picture that I'd bought on line from an auctioneer's site. Simply too big for an average car for personal collection. I resorted to a phone directory looking for courier services.... The first two I tried (well known names) fobbed me off, picture's too big for us, you are not on our route etc.. uS ...

unframed art

First try didn't work out well, 2nd time was the charm. It was frustrating trying to speak t a live person as there are no phone nummbers on the site, you have to comment first, then they get back to you. I would use the service again.

Shipping original fine art

I shipped a large painting that was destined for an important exhibition. The shipper helped me to ensure the safe pickup and delivery of the work. They were with me each step of the way and I really appreciated their support.

bupas painting

my father-in-law gifted us a second framed picture that was painted by his grandmother in the 1800s. after calling every shpping company and getting quotes of $2000. and up or refusing to ship original art, i found uship. my bidder was easy to contact and was very nice, even calling my relative and coordinating on their end. the painting arrived in perdect condition 1 day early. thankyou uship ...

Great experience shipping my boss' framed picture

My boss asked me to have his framed picture shipped to his Florida home from our Boston office. He spent about $1000 to have it framed and I was very nervous using a new shipper and a bidding service that I never used before. Several bids came through and based on times, prices, etc. I found "TEDSVTFL" and through correspondence, trusted that all would go well with them. My picture was wrapped car ...

Very good white glove service for my art.

The communication was good and the service was prompt. I required white glove service for very large and small wood and stone sculptures and they delivered it all in perfect condition. The cost of the shipping was very reasonable. I highly recommend this company.

Great experience shipping my art prints

I was looking for a better alternative to FedEx and UPS for shipping large fine art prints on canvas, both of which are expensive and have size limitations. I went online and Googled "shipping" and found uShip, and decided to give it a try. Within a day I was surprised to receive a half dozen bids all from qualified small shippers, all at about half the cost of FedEx or UPS. I chose one experience ...


These guys really have a great service. I was impressed from my first call through the delivery date!

antique painting

Careful attention to detail - they photographed at pick-up. communicated on a regular basis and pinpoint delivery time. Both pick-up and delivery in highly rural areas but facilitated addresses perfectly. Blanket and carton wrapped with no damage and no extra charge. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

excelelnt shippng of large original oil paintings

Needing to ship 5 large paintings from my gallery in California I discovered uship and was delighted to work with both uship and the shipper I chose. They were quick, worry free and efficient in every respect. Was the easiest shipping I have ever experienced. Paintings arrived in perfect condition and it was less expensive than if I had gone down to California to pick them up myself.

Great Alternative For Private Shippers-UShip saved the day

I do not own a business & sold a very large, delicate & expensive item on ebay but could not get any shippers because they all only dealt with businesses. And, the shippers that were willing to ship my package required me to deliver it to their terminal! And, the prices were just through the roof! Totally impractical for my purpose! As you can guess by now, Uship saved the day by finding a shipp ...

Art Shipment

I needed to send large paintings to a gallery in Las Vegas on a very tight budget. Traditional art shippers quoted way over budget. On a google search I found uShip. I got several bids to choose from and found a small personable truck-biz for an acceptable rate. uShip is the service of our IT age.

Excellent Delivery Services

David was excellent to work with. He kept in contact allowing me enough time to leave my job & meet him. The delivery was made with the same considerations. I would not hesitate to use him again.

I have found the secrest to shipping anything

I shopped around for weeks with ground shipping, even moving companies as I needed this very large painted canvas delivered by a certain date. My canvas was 6.5 ft tall by 4.5 wide and 3 deep so it was not a simple project. The other shipping services would, of course, need to "build" a box for this canvas and the cost became prohibitive. I "googled" alternative shipping and found Uship. ...

Great Price and Service on UShip

I shipped two large paintings from Portland, Oregon to my mother near Chicago. She was concerned about unpackaging the paintings and disposing of the packaging materials. The Movers not only gave an excellent price, they also performed "white glove service", unpackaged the paintings and brought them into my mom's home. The price I got from UShip was much less than other more conventional movers, ...

Great Experience Shipping Large Paintings

This was an awesome experience. I was a little wary as I had never heard of this service before. The uShip site was easier to use than any other shipping site and led me step by step through the process. I have never even used eBay so I am a novice doing this sort of thing and it was a piece of cake! I also loved the text notice of bidding and questions so I could deal with that even if I couldn't ...
