Smooth Move of Piano

Shipper did a wonderful job moving our piano across the state. They communicated very effectively and were on time and very nice. The move could not have gone better!!! WE would use them again!!

Vintage electric piano shipped to NYC

Bought this remarkably rare item on eBay. Then had the problem: how do I get this delicate, heavy item 600 miles to NYC? Answer: Uship. Signed up. Got an acceptible bid from Smallhaul and we were off and running. The item arrived in fine shape and the guys took excellent care during the move. Great communication. All-in-all, happy. Would probably do it again... b

Uship came through when no one else could!

We were very happy to find Uship on the internet. At first we were unsure of using an online service, but we were really desparate as no other shipper seemed to be able to handle our unique and heavy item. My husband had purchased an antique safe (3000lbs)No freight company wanted to touch the job unless we had it crated up and then the cost was nearly $3500.00 but through Uship we were able to ...

Very large Snap-On tool box

He moved it wih ease and was on time. He was a very easy person to work with. I would recomend Just4paws moving company to anyone.

fragile rare antique furniture

Odd, rare, fragile antique chair moved far in just a few days. Blanket wrapped, in great condition on arrival, moved just as if it had been in my own car. Better price than commercial freight forwarder or moving consolidator type company.

Shipping an Antique

I was assisting a relative who had inherited a beautiful antique clock but had no place for it in her home. We had no idea how to proceed to sell it. Then, we had received the name and address of a reputable antique dealer but had to get the clock from Florida to Massachusetts! Using U-Ship saved us $250.00!!

My sons piano

I bought this piano for my son when he was 6 yrs old and began piano lessons. 21 yrs have passed. He has graduated from college, and moved to many cities with his work. I have held on to his piano, waiting for him to have his own home. He bought his home in Oct 2007 and we have been trying to figure out how to get his piano home to him in a practical and affordable way. UShip came thru for us. ...

Antique sideboard arives safely

I was a nervous wreck trying to figure out how to move a fragile antique sideboard that was being given to us by my husband's family. U-ship site gave me many options and saved us at least $600. The carrier took excellent care of the piece and we are anxiously awaiting when we can actually display it in our home after it is restored.

My artwork made it without a scratch

I needed four large mural paintings shipped from Pennsylvania to Colorado. USHIP came to my rescue and I found a great match who got my paintings safely to Colorado in two days!!! I was able to save a lot of money using an independent trucking company instead of a commercial freight company. It saved me loads of money. Most importantly, my fragile artwork, made it to its destination unharmed. ...

Good service

Glad to use them.

1st experience

This was my first experience with hiring online shipper. I can't believe how easy it was. The ratings system provides useful comparisons. I would have been lost without this site.

Great Experience Shipping Harp

I bought a harp for my daughter in Colorado and needed to have it shipped to our home in Utah. I found uShip online and decided to try it out. Our service provider did a great job. The harp was picked up by the service provider at the residence in Colorado where it was located and delivered to our home in Utah. The provider went the extra mile and carried the harp into our home. We saved abou ...

Moving a 500 lb. Air Hockey Table

Scott did a terrific job. He could not have been more professional and careful. My air hockey table arrived without a scratch on it. Also--he was very good about communicating from the day he got the job until the final delivery. Many thanks, and I will definitely use Scott again if I ever have another move in the future.

Great shipping from Ohio to California!

Great job for delivering the Yamaha all the way from Ohio to California. Other than the fact that it took around 1 month, the wait is well worth it.

My shipment

I wom a bid on ebay for some new windows and within minutes of the end of the auction I started hoping that I would be outbid because I realised that it may be difficult and certainly not cost effective to purchase them as they were more than a thousand miles away. I won the auction and felt dissapointed and then a friend of mine told me about uship, I put in all my details and within minutes I st ...

Tanning bed

If you need a tanning bed shipped then you go with u-ship they were great. They are the only one that I could find to ship it. I just wish e-bay would list this on there site so people would know and not go thur the nightmare that I did. Thanks U-Ship and Jeff Hyatt. Donna Wolford

Good mover!

My mover did a wonderful job. He was professional, stayed in contact, and he treated my shipment (which happened to be a piano, but he will do any kind of shipment) very carefully. I would use him any time!

Thumbs Up To Uship for antique Grandfather clocks safe passage AAA+++

My transporter Robert aka "STICKMAN" communicated with me all the way and his professional packing for transport ensured the safe arrival of an easily damaged and fragile item.You would have to know me to understand how anal I am when it comes to items that are damaged in transit due to poor packing.I deal in antiques that have stood the test of time and there is nothing that irks me more then hav ...

Fantastic Shipper for Our Antique Cart

I needed to ship an antique horse cart known as an Irish Jaunting Cart from California to New York state. After reading all the positive feedbacks from Kurt of Summit Transport, I decided to hire him. He also was very competitive on his bidding. I couldn't have had a better experience. I did not know that the pick-up location was going to involve him getting his rig up a long steep driveway, but i ...

Very smooth and easy transaction shipping large auto dealer sign.

Dan was a very professional, polite, and generally nice guy to deal with. He kept in touch with updates frequently, and was very pleasant. I would definitely recommend Dan to anyone else, and will almost certainly be dealing with him again in the future.

My Piano Move

My wife told me she wanted her Aunt's piano that was bought for her Aunt by her Grandfather. Her Aunt wished for the piano to stay in the family. As a good husband I jumped. My wife is excellent. She asks for little. I'd like to think I provide well for her and our two babies. When my wife says she wants something, I jump... out of respect. As it was, I searched online to find a piano mov ...

Great experience

I have to admit, I was a skeptic. This seemed to good to be true. I bought some Pilates studio equipment which almost broke the bank so I really had to limit my shipping cost. I called a few shipping organizations and was getting quotes from $500 to $600. I found uShip via a google search and wow, I am glad I did. I ended up having my item shipped by a wonderful carrier for $175. Well worth eve ...

Giant Sailfish Migration

This was my first UShip experience, and it was great. I won an old Sailfish mount on EBay, without noticing the Seller was not willing to handle shipping. The Seller was concerned about damage, and made the item a "pick-up only" auction. I won the item for a fraction of what I expected to pay-- which was the first sign I had missed the shipping issue. Since I wasn't about to drive 1500 m ...

Great dealing with AAA+++++


pain free piano move

I needed to have my wife's piano moved from NY as her uncle was tired of housing it. I didn't want to pay an arm and a leg to do so. uShip turned out to be the answer. I quickly got several bids within my price range and was able to compare feedback for providers to make sure they were on the up and up. Howard delivered my piano going out of his way when the schedule became somewhat problemati ...

Fantastic Experience Shipping Large Antiques

I had purchased a large two piece cupboard and a 19th century grandfather clock from a local antique house. Normally my husband and I would handle the moving ourselves, but I had foot surgery earlier in the week and was on crutches so we needed to outsource the pick up and delivery. The auction house requires pick up of any won items within 3 business days of the auction so I needed to find a sh ...

Great Piano-Moving Experience

Steve from AAA Piano Services is absolutely wonderful, and I highly recommend him to anyone needing to move a piano - he moved a baby grand for me. He was on-time and made the move fast. I especially liked that he is just a nice and pleasant guy. I wish everyone I do business with would make the experience as enjoyable. If you have the opportunity to use AAA Piano Services, you will be very ha ...

Large fragile antique breakfront

Allgood moving had great communication and service. Joe keeps his truck clean and carefully organized to be safe and efficient. Joe has a long history in moving expensive antiques and it shows in his expert handling. I will use Uship for all my moving needs from now on!

Very valuable sign delivered perfectly. Super price, great guys

I started by checking the local shippers around S.L.C, Utah. Bids were litterly prohibitive. A friend told me about a sign 6' that he had delivered through U-ship. I signed up and listed a very expensive sign that was not crated (as most shippers wanted them crated) Griz showed up, padded the sign and shipped the sign to Texas for me. It arrived in perfect condition and my friend who received the ...

String bass transported from MI to VA

I bought a stand up string bass (6 foot tall musical instrument) on ebay. I wasn't sure how to get it from Michigan to Virginia. so I tried UShip. A UShip carrier lived near the seller and was planning a trip to Virgina. He p[icked up the bass and delivered it to within 3 miles of my home. Everything worked out well.

Great experience shipping my Antique 1920's Monarch Stove

I purchased my Antique 1920's Monarch Stove thru Craigs List in Minneapolis, MN. I live in Big Bear Lake, CA. I used 'UShip.com' and within 2 days my stove was pick up at the sellers home and my stove was delivered to my home less than a week. My stove was in excellent condition and the service provider, Wade was friendly and helpful. Wade traveled over 1800 miles cross the States. The fee was wel ...

would use again!

mr. soards moved my piano in a timely fashion and was very easy to work with. would highly recommend!

Great Experience

Fantastic man, very trustworthy, handicapped serving our country. He is not bitter about that. He is not giving up but keeps going with everything he can. Shippment had high value and it was handled as such. This man is polite honest and I could not have hoped to find a better person to deliver my goods. U-Ship should treasure this man and customers should demand no less than he offers.

Did a FANTASTIC job!!!!

I had two items shipped from Mississippi, to me in Kansas: my father grandfather clock he bought 6/6/1990 and was promised to me when he passed away in 1996 and given to me when my mother passed 12/20/2006. The other item was a painting I did from them for Christmas,1995. I would rather have both my parents here with me, but these two items were special to both of us. Millers Shipping took ver ...

A great experience shipping my giant Bronze Deer.

I live in Spokane, Washington, and I purchased a larger-than-life bronze deer statue from a private party in Florida for a good price, but had a terrible time trying to line up a shipper to get it here. Most shipping/trucking companies did not want to deal with it because it was not crated or on a pallet, and the ones that were interested wanted a fortune. I found Uship online, listed my deer wi ...

Great experience shipping my piano.

The first time I matched to ship my piano, I contacted the carrier to confirm credentials as mentioned on the uship website. His credentials were not valid and I was able to communicate with a previous shipper who had used him and was not happy. I immediately cancelled and uship was quick to refund my deposit. When I relisted, I made sure my second shipper had lots of positive feedback (100%) a ...

great experience with tough item in basement

very bulky item that needed to be taken from basement. another shipper had walked away from from the job when he saw where it was. Jeff had no problem with it did the disassembly and loaded the item and delivered it without a scratch. extremely accomadating. would ship with him again without hesitation. thanks Jeff

Excellent service

I bought back an antique piano that I had sold twenty years ago and had regretted for several years. I needed it moved from Las Vegas to Auburn, California. When I started looking at piano movers, I was getting quotes of $900-1200. Mountain Transport bid the job at half the cost and after reviewing their feedback, I chose them to do the job. The piano was picked up and delivered on the same da ...

Fragile heirlooms shipped with care!

I was VERY nervous about shipping these 4th generation fragile Newel Post lamps from rural Az to Massachussets. I didn't have the thousands of dollars the "Art" shipping companies wanted. Gus's quote wasn't cheap but is was reasonable. Gus put me at ease from the start. He asked informed questions about the items that let me know he knew what he was doing. He personally packed them up and stayed ...

Great experience!

Shipped a motorized wheelchair from Sarasota, Florida, to a suburb of Buffalo, New York. Received a quick reply to my listing on "uship", and an accepatble bid. Arrangements went smoothly, thanks to great communication back & forth. Shipment received today in excellent condition.

Our baby grand is off to our daughter.

Our baby grand had to go! It was blocking the wall where I could envision a cool wide screen TV and all the toys that come with it, and besides, neither my wife nor I play the piano. We needed to ship it to our daughter, whom we had bought it for, many years ago. Now, our daughter and that piano had given us years of pleasure, so it was important to get the right company for the move. UShip provid ...


The executran person was very fast to respond with a bid and kept in constant contact with me throught the whole delivery. He even offered to package the windows I purchased on ebay for me. What a great experience to have someone so professional and honest. I will use this service again for sure.

Great experience shipping a large painting

EZ Movers did a great service for a reasonable price. It costed almost 1/2 of what I would have spent if I would have gone with UPS. They picked up my shipment less than 1 week after I posted. I would definitely use UShip again and I highly recommend EZ Movers.


You may use the comments I already posted as they include all the details you have listed above.

Great Job Picking up and Deliverying My Doors

8'X6' Oval Wrought Iron Front Entry Door was picked up in Casa Grande , Az and delivered to Spring, Texas 1 full day ahead of schedule. Paul and Faydra did a great job of communicating there whereabouts throughout the course. They communicated to both me and the pick up location, which was very important. I tried to use another company, who was a day late and did not commmunicate there pick up tim ...

Bob Haynes Piano Moving

These folks did a great job at the time, the price, and the excellence that they promised. They were also polite and pleasant. Easy to recommend. Found Uship by accident and was, as usual sceptical about anything you find by accident on the internet. But I actually received several quotes from sources that looked legitimate. And our eventual experience was vry positive. Thank you.

Why would you ship a $800 piano to Washington state from Colorado?

I had the oportunity to move my Grandfather's piano from my Niece's house, she did not have room for it, to my house or have it sold. We already had a piano that my housemate had promised to her son who lives in Washington. Neither piano had a great dollar value. But Just4u was able to pick up my Grandfather's piano in North Denver, bring it to our house in South Denver, and pick up our piano f ...

UShip is a great service

My mother passed away in July, and I needed to have some of her things and quite of bit of my father's art work (he was an artist who passed away over 25 years ago) shipped to me from Chicago to Atlanta. The items didn't have much monetary value, but they meant the world to me. I have to admit, I was extremely anxious about having a stranger 'roaming around the country' with my parents memories. ...

Best Movers Ever!!

Terry (on the move) was great! They moved my huge antique upright piano, and made it look easy (as easy as lifting several hundred pounds can be). This was the first time the piano has been moved without any damage, not even a scratch. Plus, the price was less than half of what I was quoted by several professional piano movers. I hope they stay in business for a long time, because I will definitel ...
