Ship the boat and equipment

Uship has been recommended to me from my friend. I will now try to use more service from Uship as it is easy and quick respond. Thanks. Vanvisut

urgent delivery needed

I had to get my boat gearbox from Cheshire to the midlands urgently.It was collected the following morning at 9.30am and delivered at 11.30am

boat engine collection

Having bought this engine on ebay the choice was drive down or find a delivery service at a reasonable cost, my first bid auction i messed up by transposing the collection and delivery addresses, but as soon as i listed it properly, within minutes I had an acceptable quote. Astra Move did the job on time and at the agreed price, can't fault them and will definitely use this service again.

Piece bateau

Very professionnal service with great and friendly communication. Road carrier really to recommand !

First time

Was my first experience with UShip. I was surprised at how quickly the responses came in. The outcome was great in all respects. I have passed the word that Uship is certainly to be considered for all important shipping needs.

90 hp yamaha outboard motor

I live in South-America, purchased the motor in maryland and it was moved by S3-Logistics to Miami within 3 days! Thank you Uship & S3Logistics. It's been a pleasure working with you.

used Outboard motor 25 hp Johnson welect Remote st

From start to finish..Dorrance was great. He was a great communicator. He delivered our motor on time and in the condition as promised. Thank you Dorrance!

Pleasurecraft 351 boxes

Just had an outstanding job done for me by Robert F. through uShip. Highly recommend Robert F. with Predator14!

Shipping Parker 2120

Shipping a boat (Parker 2120) a distance of 1400 kilometers half way across the country is fraught with stress for the shipper. In this case., Bill Belair gave the professionaism that only comes with years of experience and that old fashioned helping hand that cannot be denied. I would strongly reccommend his services and endorese his company.

transport d'un mat de bateau

La premiere date ne me convenait pas, je ne pouvais pas être là pour la livraison. Pas de probleme, une semaine plus tard une nouvelle date est proposé. Et c'est parti sans aucun problème du debut à la fin.

large box

Very fast from initial posting of shipment to excepting a reasonable bid, to pick up and delivery in a matter of 5 days. Awesome!

Unknown fees charged

I paid an auction fee + an unknown fee to uShip. I was informed, out of the ~$450 total price that uShip took an ~$150 fee from the service provider.

1 Pallets

I cannot speak for a large shipment, but if you have one pallet you need picked up from your home, these folks are the ones to use. Fed-ex wanted 3 1/2 times as much for the same freight shipment.

koop buitenboordmotor ebay

zeldzame buitenboordmotor gekocht ten oosten van Berlijn en via uship voor een prijs laten vervoeren waar ik de benzine al bijna niet had kunnen betalen. chauffeur heeft alles met verkoper geregeld wat een groot voordeel had omdat hij beter duits spreekt dan ik. super service!

Outboard Motor

Phenomenal service. It is the first time I have shipped freight and they walked me through every step. I will definitely use them again!

good experience !

i was very happy to see how this shipment goes smoothly as if i was present in USA, when i was just sitting in my house in yemen. everything went smooth in a timely manner. i never even called through phone. i was receiving emails updates from trucker. i'm very happy to use USHIP.

Boat Cradle

I sailed the Boat from Port Dover to Wiarton, Roland moved the Cradle. I took 20 days, Roland took less than a day.

outboard motor on pallet

Thought about picking the outboard up myself, but after seeing the bids on Uship, it didn't take long to rethink that idea. Great service-thank you, Uship.

2- 25' x 25" aluminum boat pontoons

We had an awkward shipment of 2 pontoon boat floats from WI to PA. UShip and Rob from RMStrucking made, what we thought was going to be a hardship, into an extremely flawless experience. I would recommend UShip and RMStrucking to absolutely everyone needing to have something shipped; they took all the pressure off of us.

1 Pallets (Non-standard)

u-Ship was great, many excellent and deserving shippers matched efficiently with items needing to be delivered far and near. I will use u-Ship again and will recommend it whenever possible. Thanks!

using Phillips Trucking

Shane Phillips called me shortly after notification he had won the bid to see what needs I had as far as receiving and timing. I explained what I needed and he followed through perfectly. Arranged to meet my schedule and timing. After pick up of my tri axle trailer he checked the grease in the wheels and tightend the lug nuts (trialer was new) did so again after first 100 miles per trailer instruc ...

Hafentrailer aus Dänematk

Nachdem das Boot seinen neuen Hafen auf dem Wasserwege gefunden hatte, fehlte noch der Hafentrailer für das Winterlager. Das Angebot war binnen 5 min bei uship eingestellt und nach wenigen Stunden hatte ich die ersten Angebote. Keine Telefonate, keine Rückrufe notwendig. Der Spediteur in allen Belangen Spitzenklasse. Termintreue, Qualität und Preis super. Jederzeit wieder bei uship, einfach ...

outboard Motor

I needed to have a vintage OB motor picked up in N. Calif and delivered to Port Townsend Washington. The PO of the motor was unable to palletize it as it is 60" long and won't fit a standard pallet. So this carrier picked up the motor mounted to an engine stand with wheels and delivered it for a reasonable price. The willingness of the carrier to do this made the deal possible.



Great Experience

I've used U-Ship and other Freight Forwarder Service Providers in the past. My experience with U-Ship is better than Freight Forwarders, which in my experience are difficult to communicate with after a shipments are booked. This shipment required good coordination between the shipper and the pick-up location... which were difficult for me to communicate with personally. The shipper made it ...


EXCELLENT shipper every thing was in mint shape very easy to communicate with on time to the mint FRIST CLASS guy highly recommend him for shipping !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks very much James , Anthony

Uship is the best!

Using Uship it was easy to find a competent shipper at a very competitive price. While shippers bid on my shipment I reviewed their feedback and profile so I could choose the shipper I felt would do the best job. All while I watched the cost of my shipment drop as competitive bids came in. I have already recommended Uship to several friends.

I had three bids within 2 days regarding shipping my item from NY to FL. Accepted one bid and item delivered a day eariler than expected...excellent service. I am sold on USHIP all the way!!!!

First time using Uship

This was our first time using Uship. We had a very positive experience and would definitely use it again.

Sailboat steel cradle

I placed an add in January with Uship and did not realise I was too early for the delivery. My fist experience with UShip. I resend and got John quotation, which I accepted. I was very pleased to make a deal with a person who cares very much about his reputation. The pick-up and the delivery schedule were exactly as estimated and communicated by John ( Sunshine64 ) The trust and the communic ...

I checked the reviews of this company and the number of shipments they had made and decided to use them. I was very happy with the results. Everything went as promised.

air boat trailor

this gentlemen delivers ,he was at the location of pick-up right away ,he was always in contact with me ,great shipper .would use him for all my shipping goods thanks tom

The enchanted world of shipping.

As we considered the value of driving to Los Vegas and delivering our outboard motor directly, the thought of loosing all our profits and then some to those greedy casino owners stopped us in our tracks. So giving an oportunity to our previous shippers, who didn't read their emails quick enough we grabed the fastest, cheapest enclosed delivery service we could find. Fortunately they must have gone ...

50 hp Mercury outboard motor

The company kept in touch with me throughout the shipment of my motor and were very good at communicating and prompt with their services.

Good service

I had a pair of odd aircraft floats to ship from one out of the way address to another out of the way address all the way across the country. I did no crating, but they arrived in excellent condition. I and my customer were both very happy with the service. I am telling all my friends about Uship. CS

Boat Lift

I had to geta boat lift i bought at a great price here to NJ person i found here broght it to me at a great price and provided service outside the box where others would not.

Great delivery on sailboat mast.

I needed a new sailboat mast brought north for my boat. Craig bundled my delivery with another for a great price. He is a boatowner and sailor himself and so was very familiar with the requirements of transporting a flimsy 30' aluminum extrusion which he did in a well-supported and careful manner. When he got up to this area he communicated well and made a special trip well out of his way to ge ...



1958 Vintage outboard motor shipped from PA to IN

If you need a prompt and caring shipper - Jim's your man! He shipped my vintage outboard motor with care and was a very good communicator every step of the way! Thanks, Brad

Another satisfied customer.

I needed a 250lb marine diesel shipped from St. Petersburg, FL to Baltimore MD ASAP. Initial on-line quotes were nearly half the cost of the engine! Then I tried UShip; moved it for just under $1/lb and it arrived in perfect condition. I was apprehensive at first since I've never done anything like this and the downside (no engine, out $200+) was pretty steep. But I took the plunge and don't regre ...

First-time UShipper

Mildly apprehensive doing UShip for the first time; involved transporting sailboat gear over 1,000 miles, to a buyer I'd met over the Internet via a shipper I'd met via UShip. Everything worked out very smoothly.

great service

they are very accomidating, great to deal with, just a pleasure to do business with i would highly recommend them. Thanks for the service jimmy Strickland

These Guys Rock!

I had searched high and low for this exact boat motor and when I found one 1,144 miles away, I was nervous entrusting my engine to any random shipper; however Tropical Transport eased all my concerns! Excellent communication throughout the whole process enabled the delivery to go to through without a hitch. Thanks!

Professional Transport

The agreement called for Professional Transport to tow my newly purchased boat/trailer combination from Orange Beach, Alabama to Moorpark, California. The Seller swore oaths that the 4 wheel bearings had been serviced and the tires had 95% service life left in them. Well, 75 miles out Mike had a catastrophic failure of one trailer tire which he replaced with the spare. Then he noticed that the bea ...


I ordered a poling platform on craigslist in Ft. Myers, and I live in Key West. I sent the craigslist listing on uship and received a bid from Jim. I accepted the offer and Jim was quick to coordinate and within a couple hours of my accepting the bid, Jim was on the road with my platform for my boat. He arrived in Key West and record time and we met at my home. I have nothing but good things t ...

Uship Great service, Excellent Communication, Great Price, A++++++++++++

Thanks to Uship's easy and very convinient shipping auction we are now able to find companies which offer Great Service, Excellent Communication, and take good care of items,truly an A+++++++++++ auction. We used TropicalTransport in our very first shipment and due to their great c ...

Great experience

Glenn was a pleasure to do business with. He was punctual, courteous and kept me posted with the delivery and completion. I would certainly use him again

Sailboat equipment shipment

Advertised to have a 13' section of boom hauled from NC to IL. A complete success! I will use uShip again for similar type hauling needs. Very easy and the price was right.
