Feed-back about uShip.

My service provider moved a studio piano from Maryland to Indiana for me,( jqueensnyc ) is his ID on uShip & his name is Eric. He's a VERY honest guy & definitely a Christian man, not only in name BUT in practice! I would pick again him even if his bid were to be a little higher than other bids. Just to know that he is a man of his word in every way is worth paying extra dollars!!! A true professi ...

Shipping delicate item

Excellent communication, care and handling of shipment. Came when they said they would with a box specifically made for my shipment, packed with care. Everything arrived safe. Everything handled courteously and professionally. Would definitely recommend.

I got my dream sofa!

I am planning on opening a boutique in New Jersey selling fine jewelry and designer clothing. I had seen an antique sofa that I loved, but could not seem to track it down to buy for the store. After weeks of pricing out antiques and antique replicas, I took the advice of a salesperson in a high end furniture store and shopped on Ebay. I was hesitant to shop on Ebay because I did not want to hav ...

Family Treasure Arrives Intact

These guys shipped a 22 foot long shuffleboard table that's been in my mom's basement for 20 years. My brothers and I have racked up countless hours on this board, from teenage years on through beer-drinking nights. Mom was ready to part with it in Maryland, and Easymovers expertly delivered it to North Carolina to my new home and set it up. Within a few minutes, my buddies and I were throwing ...

First time using uShip - Moved a piano!

Today I was thrilled to see a piano I purchased just last week delivered by a mover I found on uShip! Late last week I optimistically submitted request for bids to move the beautiful, 30-year-old piano I had purchased 85 miles from the town I bought it in to my home on the coast. After receiving a few different bids I settled on Big John's Moving, a moving company from right here in my state, b ...

opens new opportunities

I am a painter in Los Angeles and thanks to Uship I am able to show my work all over the country. My paintings arrive safely, soundly and affordably!

Very good experience

I shipped my mother's piano from my nephew's home in southern New Hampshire to Northern California. I was surprised to find a mover located in that area so quickly. Before I could supply them with the street number of the house, they had already been in touch with my brother who met them and got it loaded on a Sunday morning. It arrived the following Friday! Wow!

Shipping Grandmother's Piano

My daughter,a college music major in Pennsylvania, was in need of a practice piano. Her late Grandmother's piano was in Arizona. Because she is her Grandmother's namesake, the piano has great sentimental value. We started collecting online estimates and found our shipper at U-ship. "Stickman" offered us the best price by far - nearly half of some of the other quotes we received! Most importantly, ...

A miracle: Affordable piano shipping!

Well, after about 20 different quotes, I came across this site and after signing up, received a bid from "Movers Unlimited" and didn't hesitate to take their offer (it was less then 50% the cost of the other carriers). Other carriers wanted to charge me the cost of the piano! I understood ahead of time that it would be delivered at the convenience of the carrier and I was ok with that. The pian ...

He took care of my pool table like it was his own.

Mike knew how to ship my pool table in a manner that prevented any damage. His truck was well equipped and clean. He was very happy and seems to really enjoy his work. He was very busy but had time to provide friendly service. Good first time experience with UShip.

Uship was the answer to an unpleasant eBay seller!

I purchased a piece of furniture on eBay for what I considered to be a real deal, but I hadn't requested the shipping cost ahead of time (my error entirely). When the BAD news came back--that shipping would be 75% of the purchase price--I asked to be released from the contract (out of Christmas kindness, as it were). The seller turned a bit nasty, and it became clear that the seller had an in-hous ...

Great experience shipping my piano

I bought a second-hand piano from a private party. How to move the piano home is a fresh challenge for me. I ran into uship web through google, I think. Then I posted my moving request and waited to see other people bidding. 1)Bidding Phase: All the bids are with difference of $5 or $10. It is hard for me to decide which one. But this service provider, RHINONUTT, gave a much lower price. Late ...

Positive shipping of Mother's cedar chest

My Mother had a cedar chest that she bought as a young woman. It has moved back and forth over the U.S. many times over the past 25 years. During Mom's last move to Reno, it was necessary to leave her chest with family in Minnesota, with the understanding that I was to receive it ASAP. That was seven years ago. Didn't happen! Unfortunately, my Mom died before I was able to get her chest back t ...

Great experience with a great shipper!!!

Mike was so professional and packed and helped load the item (a 8 ft. tall English Phone booth made of cast iron and wood) more than he should have had to. Definitly could not have done this with out him and was glad that everything worked out for us. Thanks, Mike - mlp677

Good Shipper

Thank you

good experience shipping my string bass

I bought my bass in 1960 when I was in high school. It helped me through high school, then thrugh college via scholarships. I haven't played in years but just didn't want to sell my bass. It was part of me. I found out my cousin's son played bass & was interested in an upright. What great timing. A good home for my baby. Melcal got the bid. Great price and they picked the bass up and too ...

Great shipping of odd item

We had recently purchased a driving cart that is pulled by a horse. This is an odd shaped item with two long shafts that attached to the horse and a section where you sit with two wheels. These are hard to find at a good price and we bought this one from MI and we are in SC. Gary (RapidRunVanMan) was kind enough to put our cart in his open van and secured it well for the trip. This kept it saf ...

Last second move

I needed 4 large boxes shipped out of state. I contacted all the major shipping companies; UPS, FedEx, USPS, DHL. All of which were telling me that it would cost me $400-$600 to have my items shipped. Not to mention that I would not receive them for 4 days (earliest). I came to the UShip website where I was given an option to select a company that would ship my packages FOR THE PRICE I INDICATED. ...

Great job by a really decent guy!

Steve's truck got held up in a nasty storm in CT, so he was delayed by a day. HOWEVER, once his boys got on the road, he had his truck here exactly when he said he would. This a a very good shipper. USE HIM! He was responsive, informative and professional.

Shipping firm

While this was my first experience using uShip, I found the firm responding to my posting to be very responsive and helpful to this novice. Be patient and hopeful if you have an item to ship as I had at least 3 offers of help.

Great experience shipping a piano

Easy transaction. Great communication on movers' end. Piano arrived in great condition. GREAT, GREAT, UNBEATABLE price! Thanks, Uship!

Great Experience!

This was perfect if you are always in front of a computer like I am! James (or his wife), got back to me within a few minutes with each email and everything was delivered faster than anticipated. They were both very nice and we will definitly call them back for any more deliveries. Thank You!

Old G E Monitor Top Refrigerator, OH to CT

An eBay win was shipped to me by RapidRunVanMan, in a very successful fashion. I have had Very Good Luck with the folks I have accepted quite reasonable bids from here on uShip. Not only would I use uShip again, but this shipper, and the other are favorites of mine. Even the Seller of the item turned out to be Extremely cooperative! Readying, Loading, Securing, Shipping and Delivering a hefty ye ...

Railroad Bell for Christmas

When I won an Ebay auction for a real railroad bell for a Christmas gift for my brother, I had no idea how I was going to ship it since I was responsible to pick it up. That is when I discovered uShip and found a personal service shipper that was professional and caring and delivered my bell as promised. Getting a 200 pound brass railroad bell from Minnesota to Southern California in the snow se ...

Superb job shipping my Baby Grand Piano

EmpirePianoMovers picked up and delivered my piano without a single hitch. I couldn't believe how professional Steve and his partner were on both ends of the job. He truly is a professional piano mover. I will use his company (EmpirePianoMovers) again if ever needed in the future.

excellent care for my antique items.

I used Qualityvanshipper to transport and antique gas pump! This item was heavy and somewhat fragile. I met him one morning as agreed upon to take delivery. He was on time, just like clockwork! Communication was excellent, timing was great. I'm happy.

As much fun as ebay!

I never would of thought that a system like this would work so well. It was great getting questions and comments from professionals, many of which I never would have thought of on my own. This has been a very rewarding experience, and I will not hesitate to recommend this to others or to use this service again. Great site, easy to navigate, and FUN! Way to go!

Great art shipping

Shipped a crated and very fragile glass art piece from Atlanta to Texas. Arrived for pick up as agreed and delivered ahead of schedule. Kept us informed of his progress until the package was delivered. Nice guy and very professional. Will certainly use this service again.

Outstanding and professional service!

Delivering a restored antique carousel horse

I had purchased a restored antique carousel horse, manufactured in 1911, and used uShip to transport it from New Hampshire to Missouri. This was my first experience with uShip, and found the website to be easy to use. I was apprehensive at first due to the value of the item being shipped, but the communications from the transporter helped a lot. I was more flexible on time than he was, so had t ...

great shipper shipping my painting

He got hit by a semi truck and still made my delivery! Great person and great work.

good experience shipping a jeep top

I bought a jeep top on Ebay in Mas. and every other shipper wanted it crated. Easymovers picked it up for 1/3 the price as is and got it to me in perfect shape and on time. Thank you uShip and Easymovers for the good experience, Dan

Piano move

Mountaintransport did an excellent job moving our upright piano from the SF area to the LA area. They were flexible with pickup and delivery schedules and right on time. Moving a paino was no problem for them. Thanks.

Shipping my pool table went great!

I shipped a standard size pool table with 3 1" thick pieces of slate. The table has been in the family 20 years and was no longer being used at mom's house, so it was shipped from CT to TX. I was amazed how quickly Crown Royal Moving got the table to me once the bid was accepted (less than 10 days). The movers were courteous and professional with all pieces arriving in good condition. uShip wa ...

safe arrival of hot air balloon

Good price. On time pick up and delivery. I would use these guys again if I needed anything else moved around the country.

Getting My Bass Fiddle Home

When I won this bass on eBay I thought I was going to visit my son in Dallas with the RV, so I wasn't concerned it was "pick up only".. but the trip got cancelled and I tried to arrange shipping through regular channels (ie Navis) but found it too expensive. Then I found uShip, and uShip found Gael, who personally picked up the instrument in Austin Texas, drove it all the way to North Carolina wit ...

Successful Piano Move

The right bid came in at an excellent price and MEBS transport did an all around good job moving our piano.

On The Move For You did a fabulous job!

Thank you Mark for doing such a wonderful job shipping our fragile furniture. I know it was delicate, heavy and awkward. Also, thank you for being flexible with our dates. We were coordinating a photo shoot with the furniture and did not pin point a date until the week before shipment. Thanks again! We will definately use you again!

Piano move well done!

We just had our piano shipped from Southern California to Northern CA yesterday by Mountain Transport. Although I did not have an extreme timeline to deliver the piano, I was very pleased with how fast and easy it was to ship through uShip. From start to finish, the whole process took about two weeks, with little effort on my part. I really like the bidding process and feedback process. This helpe ...

Made a tough choice easier.

Wanted to send my children some family furniture but had high estimates of $1,300 from local movers for player piano and dresser/mirror. Jeff and Linda at A1moversBekins were en-route from Buffalo to New Jersey, Atlanta and Florida. They accepted id Friday night, picked up Sat morning and arrived in Macon on Tuesday morning. Great people... can't go worng if they are your movers. Almost like f ...

Couldn't have been a more pleasant, efficient situation. I would love to work with etransporters again!!! Nice people.

Great experience shipping fine art

I was having a solo exhibit of paintings in Sarasota, Florida. 31 pieces all together in twelve containers. It took me a very long time to find the right shipper, but I was able to find a perfect match with uShip. My shipper came early to pick everything up. My shipment was the only thing in his cargo van, which gave me a strong sense of security. Packing the van went efficiently. The trip t ...

10'x12' playhouse-10.5' tall

I have a fence around my property and they picked up my playhouse and drove it 130 miles into my property! The guys placed it where I wanted it to go. I would recommend them and uship to anyone. This was my first experience and I was very happy! So are my boys who got to play in their playhouse when they got home!

Great experience shipping my christmas sliegh from back east to CA

Gary also gave me the best price and would hand pack my christmas sliegh other shippers would not do that hand they want twice the amount I was charged.


I found UShip.com in my search to ship a motorized wheelchair from Chicago to Florida. Wow, what a system. I just listed the item and waited for shippers to come to me. If anyone I know has any shipping matters, they will sure hear about you from me. The Shipper: Dothedough shipped my wheelchair. They were greatand their price fell right into my budget. They called as they were on their way and m ...

Will always use Uship for our shipping needs.

We have a small antique shop in Rome, GA and sold a table to a couple from Ohio who were passing through town. They really wanted the table but couldn't take it with them. They thought that shipping could be arranged later; we had doubts. Well, after many quotes and many calls, it was becoming apparent that the cost and time frame were just not going to work. We were at the point of refunding ...
