Great experience moving my piano

I have a 10 year old son, who has been playing piano for the last 4 years. My mother, who took lessons for 12 years helps him practice and learn to read music between lessons. He was using a large keyboard to practice, until I found an add on craigslist for a free piano. I went to see it, and it looked brand new. It also went great with my home decor, as I just purchased a new house in June. ...

Baby Grand road trip to Oregon...

My parents had a baby grand piano that I grew up with that they wanted to give to my family. We had to ship it from San Diego, CA up to Roseburg, Oregon. After doing a search on the internet, I found this site (uShip) and thought I'd give it a try. I was amazed by the quick response from Bald Eagle Movers, and also at the reasonable quote they provided. I booked the job, which they completed perfe ...

18th Century Grandfather Clock

This was a great experience! The price was wonderful, the shipper was excellent - I would highly recommend USHIP to anyone! The item I had shipped was an 18th century English tall case clock. The shipper had never moved one before but with just a few instructions the team did an excellent job! I was well pleased. The price - Excellent!

A happy ending to a great beginning!

I love a shipping company that really takes pride in what they do! Don set everything up for me with ease! Delivery with a simle :o) This is what I got from David and Freddy, two great guys that know how to pack and move things right the first time! Truly a great experience! I give them thanks for all they have done in delivering my 1937 Mills Studio Jukebox!


This was our first experience with USHIP, and unfortunately, we got off to a bad start with our first try. We needed a small piano moved across the country and, since it was for a nonprofit group, we needed it shipped cheaply. The first shipper we chose turned out to be a total flake. After months of excuses and putting us off, they finally "went out of business." I decided to give USHIP o ...

Car parts shipping.

I was having a hard time trying to ship this items. The shipper used UPS freight and all the paper work was emailed to me. Item was picked up the next day and delivered a few days after. Thank you.

Great service

Uship is a great service .I only wish I learned about it sooner .I am recommending Uship to all my Ebay trading partners .I can only hope Uship can keep going strong .

The trek of the rose quartz boulder

We shipped a 3000 pound rose quartz boulder from Lubbock to Boerne (over 300 miles)because my parents had gone into assisted living and their house was being sold. My parents bought this boulder in Canyon City, Colorado on a vacation in 1966, for $150. It sat in our yard for decades, the centerpiece of one of my mother's gardens. The value of it today would be about $10,000, but of course it was ...

Moving a piano

Contractor bid the max I was willing to pay. I didn't want to pay too much for moving an old piano but I know pianos are trickier to move than most things. They were very friendly and kept up communication until we could make the arrangements. There was some difficulties with the move - also not a big surprise with a piano - they got it done and that was what was most important to me. Professional ...

great job!

it was a great first experience using uship. i will tell all my friends about you service and will use you for many of my future shipments. thanks guys

My Grandparents' piano

I was very nervous about sending this "keepsake" piano from our home to our daughter's home. But Congressional Movers contacted me and did exactly what I wanted. Their price was very good and I was in contact with them as to the time they would pick up and deliver. I am just sorry they arrived in Louisiana too late for crawfish season--if I had only known!

Excellent way to ship

I have never had to ship anything so big so when I found uShip where people would bid for the job I was instantly impressed. My uncle wanted to send me an old (in new condition) cedar chest and I agreed to pay to have it sent. I had NO idea how I was going to do that and not really sure how to start. So, I went to the internet and looked for shipping companies and was directed to this sight. I wil ...

Shipped an antique pool table

I shipped an antique table and the guys who came were so smart about pool tables and did it in a timely manner.. I was so worried but they took it right to its destination and went the extra mile.. It arrived safe and sound and I am very pleased with the whole experience. Teri

Move of piano from Brooklyn to Manhattan

Jim was professional from the very start. He returned my message right away and called often to follow up. He was extremely careful with the move and courteous at all times. This was the first time we used uShip, but we would highly recommend it to anyone. Our experience was so positive. Thank you,

A funeral and a Hurricane minus one less worry

My grandmother passed away leaving all of us grandchildren some of the family heirloom furniture that has been a part of our memories for as long as we can remember. The value to us is more in the memories than the dollar value. I needed to get my stuff here to Texas from Seal Beach, Ca. When pricing everything, including renting a truck we felt that we just wouldn't be able to afford the shi ...

Very satisfied customer

I was going through a divorce and with little money I was in a situation where I needed to have my heirloom grand piano moved. The first bid I got by calling a piano mover was over $900. I didn't know what to do until I found u-ship. I immediately got several bids and one was for $145. total. What a difference. They did a quick, careful job. Thank you!

Great experience shipping my Organ.

I have used uShip twice in the last month or so. By using uShip, I have been able to locate movers that I would have not know existed. I got different bids until the price that I wanted to pay came up. If you are patient and know what you are doing, you will always get what you want. I paid $620 for moving a Hammond Organ and a Leslie Speaker(400lbs+/-). There was much higher bids, I took my ...

Piano Delivery

Shipped a family piano from MD to AZ. Timing was off because off the hurricane so shipment got delayed. However, it was still a speedy process. Furniture pad stuck to piano and Drex spent alot of time trying to get off the sticky residue. Ended up eating up the lacquer finish. Drex did discount the price due to the situation. He and his daughter traveled together and were wonderful people to ...

Large Lot Shipping

Shipping big stuff is a pain in the neck. uShip solves all that with an equitable bidding process for an order just like an auction on eBay. It is quite remarkable, really. I shipped a large oil painting from coast to coast and it was a good experience. My shipper was a good guy and the communication was just right. I will use uShip again for sure

Foosball table

My movers had to deliver a fully assembled foosball table to my house and down exterior basement stairs that are fairly dangerous. They took their time, and figured out the best way to do it without damaging the table and really put their backs in it. A million thanks!

Pool Table move

We got a good deal on a pool table and needed a good deal on moving it. Using Uship I saved 200.00 and met some great guys from easyway in the process.

15 minutes could save you $1200 or more on yourshipping costs !!!

I needed to ship a piano from my grandparent's home in the SFO area to the PHX area. I have no idea the worth of the piano, but my grandparents know that my children take lessons, and wanted them to have it. I checked around to see what this was going to cost us. It was looking like it would be a waste- we don't even know the value of the piano, so didn't want to spend a lot of money on something ...

great experience

had one upright piano moved and didn't have time to call around. the bidding service that uship provides is efficient and easy. Quote accepted was significantly lower than pricing I received on other sites. I will definitely use the site in the future. My service provider was efficient and friendly. They were a pleasure to work with.

Hassle free experience shipping our entertainment center.

My husband and Iwere first time users of Ebay and won the bidding for a home entertainment tainment center. We had no previous experience coordinating the shipping of such an item (350+ lbs.&4'x6.5'). The item was solid oak and needed to be moved from NJ to Atlanta GA. within 7 days of purchase. I work during the day, and my husband was scheduled to be out-of town on business the day day of the ...

Great experience with a piano delivery

I ran in to your site by doing a general inquery on the internet for piano movers in my area. After completing the information about my piano, I was immediately contacted with bids. Some were very high and I felt unreasonable. It was interesting that when I declined a bid, one provider immediately rebid $200.00 less. The service provider I used was both reasonable and great with his communicat ...

Wheel Chair

Chuck's an ace mover with experience to get the job done right the "first-time-around" If you want to save money and your get results ask Chuck!!!


Drex helped me find information about my antique piano. When my daughter received it, she described him as awesome.

Excellent Customer Service Shipping Large Antique Doll House! :)

Mary was very helpful and made sure my large, rare, antique, doll house arrived safely! She's very friendly and kept me informed of the pick up and delivery times and even called me to give me a progress report. I'll be using them again for my specialty shipping needs. I would recommend her to anybody who's thinking of shipping their animals as I can personally attest to her commitment and love f ...

sigh of relief

It was hard to let someone pick up the family piano and take it from San Diego to the bay area, especially someone I found online, but Express Transport through uShip was just great. They were the lowest of 4 bidders. I've been taught never to take the lowest bid, but I was impressed with every answer to my questions. When the truck developed a mechanical failure that resulted in a couple day d ...

uShip Service

uShip was a great service to get the most competitive bid in a short amount of time. Calling around to get a small piano shipped in a short time frame was nothing but a big hassle. uShip saved me time and $$. Thanks!

piano mover

Empire piano movers KNOW THEIR BUSINESS! Thanks to USHIP, I was able to find movers quickly and have the piano moved sooner than expected! Thank you!

Affordable piano shipping

I struggled for several months trying to find an affordable way to ship my grandmother's piano. UShip made it possible- and came in 50% lower than my other options.

Great experience in shipping the piano to our daughter.

We needed to ship our piano to our daughter who had just moved to St.Louis and the bids I had received were fairly high. But when I tried uShip, Steven Meyer came in with a bid that was less than half of the other bid. We were a little worried as to what kind of service we might get, but it was excellent. Thanks

moving a player piano

We were quite troubled about how we were going to get a large awkward player piano movied - first out of our second-story condo in Illinois and then 800-plus miles to our new home in Georgia. I stumbled across U-Ship while searching for ideas on piano moving, and I gave it a try. The rpocess was a bit long at the start and the bids a bit slow at the start, but I found that the experience was exc ...

Moving Grandma's piano

My late Grandmother-in-Law had an antique piano that we acquired. We needed the piano moved by experienced piano movers but at an affordable price. I tried uShip and within a week I had a bid for the exact price I was looking for. The bidding process was effortless and I received my piano in a timely and professional manner.

Great piano shipping experience

When I told my dad I had purchased a piano and was looking for a mover, he told me about Uship. He heard about it from a few driver friends of his. To be honest, I was a little worried at first- using this online service to hire someone to move my piano and putting all my info out there. But, after checking into uship, I found that not only is it very easy to use and keeps my info safe, it's al ...

telling my friends

I hadn't heard of Uship, and was pleasantly surprised. I thought it was way better than using the yellow pages. I got a decent shipper for a great low rate. I will definitely consult Uship next time. Cheers, Phil Alexander

Awkwardly large shipment

I needed to ship theater quality costumes, mardi gras and the like from Chicago to Philly. Nazar responded to my posting within one hour of listing the job and within 4 hours had come to pick everything up and within 36 hours my client had her costumes. There were about a dozen items that were HUGE and delicate that just couldn't be boxed. Nazar and his crew handled these with great care and my cl ...

moving my piano

was good I could get many different bids from different movers but uship charge was pretty expensive($20) than I expected, especially comparing to my decent moving cost($145). It was overall good experience.

Great experience shipping my Hammond Organ.

Shipping a Hammond Organ is not an easy task. I got three bids for this shipment and one of them was the lowest and the most positive one. I will use uShip for all my shipping intentions, before I use any one else. uShip has a very extensive list of service providers and everything is handled in a very professional way. I recommend uShip for all of your shipping needs. God bless all of you at uS ...

Excellent Experience Using the Pianoman!

This was a first for us using the U-Ship process. The end result was excellent. We got our piano moved with no problems at a reasonable rate. Working with Drexel will immediately put you at ease. My wife and I found him to be very personable, prompt, reliable, and knowledgable in his field of expertise. We would definitely use his services again. Thanks Drex and good luck to your daughter who begi ...

Unexpected Delay

The van delivering my shipment has mechanical problems and was not able to deliver my boxes on schedule. We were not informed of this and when the scheduled delivery time came and went, we called and that's when we found out about the problem. We were not going to be in town to accept the delayed delivery, so it was stored in a secure location until we could. It was then brought to us at our con ...


I own an antique business and have always used local shippers. I was nervous about trying UShip, but the shipper I chose to do my very first UShip delivery was wonderful, courteous, reliable, professional and treated my furniture with the utmost respect. Wade45 has made me a UShip believer. I will be looking forward to using your service again. This was my first UShip experience and it was a g ...

pk up and delivery of furnace

I bought a furnace on ebay that was used. I had it shipped and it worked really well. I would not hesitate to try this again. Also because the fares were so reasonable I could afford the furnace. Thanks so much u-ship

Terriffic shipping experience

My artwork was picked up punctually and delivered to its destination from NY to FL on time and with a minimum effort on my part. The price was fair and reasonable and Dan was most pleasant and accomodating. I would not hesitate to recommend D & K services to my friends and use him again. ALLEN P.S. uShip made the connection to the shipper possible and it was a pleasant experience--thanks to t ...

fast service

uShip helped me get in touch with several businesses very quickly, and select the bid that suited me best. Thank you for your help.

1st Try

I definitely would use uShip if the situation arises again. Our experience with the company went very well, and the service provider you placed in contact with was outstanding.

Happy 95th Birthday Mom

At 94 years old my mom spends her days driving and delivering Meals On Wheels to the old people. That's when she is not taking someone to the doctors or helping out at the soup kitchen. Her days are filled to the brim but her nights and weekends are pretty quiet. Our piano has been in the family since I was a child and when ever people were around, my mom would play and we would all sing. She sat ...

Piano Move

I was seeking a way to get my piano moved from my Dad's house to mine, a very simple move but beyond my abilities. I put up a bid and had a response in two days and the piano within a week of placing my bid. Much quicker and less expensive than I was expecting.
