Great Experience Despite Reservations

I was looking to purchase an excavator, but wanted an idea of shipping prior to purchase. A one day offer yielded several applicants.

Excavator shipment

I found it easy which is the best thing one can say. It was my first experience hiring my own truck and this site made it so easy. And I appeared to get quality bids. The one I selected gave me a great experience too and as it happened, was the lowest price too. And even more importantly for me, he was able to unload my excavator for me. I would easily use this site again if the need arose.

The morning he arrived with the excavator it was a down right blizzard. After some harrowing moments making the tight corner he made it into the yard. The trailer is made to let down and drive eqipment off, but something in the air lines was frozen so had to drive the trackhoe carefully off the side, but it got the job done! The wind was ripping so it was a good feeling to see it on the gro ...

UShip an excellent Service

This is the first time I am using Uship to move my Excavator. I have used other local shippers before, but occasionally with problems.

uShip Experience

uShip was a very effective method of moving an excavater from central florida to Little Rock Arkansas.I will certainly use them again as well as the service supplier....

Great satisfaction and confidence provided by U-Ship!

U-Ship is providing a great service for those of us who from time to time need all types of products transported from A to B. It is really nice to have some credentials on the company-person that you have entrusted to move your personal items whether it is your house hold items, vehicles or heavy construction equipment. It gives you a sense of security and the freedom to choose from a list of pr ...

Quick response to listing.

Had 5 good response bids for the shipping of my excavator within 8hrs. Very pleased with the quick response of all shippers and reasonable prices. Ended up using a shipper close to home. Company arrived early and delivered promptly. Thanks.

Got the job done

Even though the specs of the macine as provided by Ritchie Bros Auctioneers were incorrect in 3 areas ultimately affecting the necessary permits required to transport our Hitachi ZX450LC-3, American Hauling was able to stay with the machine, making alternate arrangments as necessary to ensure my product was delivered.

I purchased a mini excavator by bidding online at an action in Fort Worth, Texas. I needed the machine picked up and delivered 250 miles to my home in Rosenberg, Texas.

I could not have been more pleased with the overall outcome of this shipment and will use uShip next time ...

10 foot plow

Bought a 10 ft. Flink snowplow from the Town of Knoxville,Tenn. sight unseen just a photo. Contacted U Ship and was contacted by a few interested parties.Contracted with Rich and had my plow here north of Boston within two weeks for the amount agreed upon. No hassle or fuss.Couldn't have done it for less myself,nevermind the time that was required. I would use this service again.

Do Not Be Afraid to Use Uship

I needed a shipping Co. to ship my excavator to another state. Uship's bidding proccess keeps the costs down by creating a fair compition to all who want to participate. Get at least 3 bids , check up on there feedback, and make your selection... Its that simple...
