piano shipping

I bought a used piano from craiglist. I am glad that I found a good shipping service provider through Uship.

Plasma TV from Florida to Canada.

Having heard many horror stories, on the high end audio and video sites, about the "usual suspects" in the Currier providing field, I reckoned to be worthwhile to throw in an extra $150 and get a potential safer pick up, shipping and delivery or my fragile load (class 300!). I've set my target price at a reasonable level and made a thorough, full description of the merchandise and of my expectati ...

Fortin Barometer

I listed the shipping I needed there were delivery services send me bids. I chose a bid and company I felt comfortable with , Booked the pickup , paid them upon delivery .. the Ebay seller was equaly pleased and said Jeff and Julie made ME look good .. :) so I got what I needed for about double what my gasoline bill would have been to retrieve Barometer

Casket Shipment

From the beginning of the listing process until the delivery uShip and my carrier were there making sure I got what I needed, Thats what keep customers service at the forefront. Thats good business period. My hats off to the team on both ends. Will spread the word in my section of the country about uShip, the best in the shipping busines. Thanks!

Smartsteve - Fender Rhodes Electric Piano Transit

I purchased a 240kg Fender Rhodes electric piano off eBay. Unfortunately as I didn't have a car or any suitable means of transport I was stuck for ideas until I remembered seeing uShip on a Google search. About an hour after purchasing the Rhodes I put an advert up asking for couriers to quote. The first bids kicked in after 30 minutes and continued to arrive for another couple of days. After ...

Vintage lounge chair and ottomon

Shipper was fast,courteous and delivered item safely .He was very nice to deal with and there was excellent communication.

Heavy piano and tricky stairs!

To be honest, ours wasn't an attractive or easy job - shifting an old, large upright piano from the Godparents' house to ours up a narrow flight of stairs with a bend in the middle. A couple of companies actually backed out when they realised how tricky it was. Fortunately, the uShip site lets you know exactly what's going on with your bid, and I found it relatively easy to use. Fraser Jones ...

Great Experience Shipping My Round Glass Top Dining RoomTable

What a wonderful experience I had in my dealings with JDX Deliveries, LLC!!! Jeff and Julie took such care to make sure that my large round glass top dining room table arrived in Arizona in perfect condition. I will not hestitate to give my highest recommendation to anyone that is wanting to ship their "Extra Special Care" items from one location to another and I would definitely use them again.

Little Piano

We were happy to find uship. w/o it we would have had to abandon a family-loved piano in Seattle because it was worth about equal to what it would have cost to ship it across the country for the typical shipping bid. Thank you u-ship & thanks to the carrier also.

BandJTransport are #1

I had a pair of vintage audiophile speakers to ship about 1400 miles. BandJTransport bid and was awarded my shipment. The price could not be beat. They cared for these as if they were their own. Communication and punctuality were outstanding. Professional service from good people at a very reasonable price and now I am enjoying a pair of collectible speakers that they helped make happen! Tha ...

Great People

Enjoyed working with Frank and Lois. Professional but friendly. Great communicators about the status of the pian move. Would use they again in a heart beat.

My shipping nightmare and rescue by USHIP and JDX

Working with USHIP and this company JDX was an extremely positive experience.I purchased an antique chest at auction then discovered I needed to find my own shipper to pick it up from New York to bring it to New Orleans! After a great deal of panic looking at websites and talking to shipping services and facing a major monetary loss and damage to my reputation with a fine auction house I found USh ...

great experience shipping my table

Purchased glass dining table (very fragile base). U ship website was very easy to use I saved at a minmum $250 which is alot considering it was only one item shipped. The shipping company I chose did an excellent job. Table had to be picked up at sellors residence and boxed/wrapped for delivery. Would definitely use uship again.

first time using uShip

I was extremely satisfied in all respects and delighted to have been told of uShip. I will definitely use this service again.

shipment from LA to Denver

My brother was shipping precious cargo to me. Paintings by my deceased father. Rick is fabulous. He kept in contact and arrived right when he said he would. He carefully wrapped the paintings and there wasn't a scratch on anything. It's wonderful to know there is someone with his honestly and work ethic out there.

Thanks PennAntique!

My experience with PennAntique was very positive. The owner was very prompt and courteous answering emails and phone calls. The two guys who made the delivery were great. They arrived within the timeframe as promised despite bad weather.They placed the cupboard and were back on the road in 30 minutes or less. I would happily reccomend PennAntique.

Heavy Mirrored sideboard

Henry is the BEST! He and his partner were in constant communication and took the time to explain the process and the item to me. They had my best interests at heart and even inspected the item for damage before they carefully blanket and shrink wrapped it for the safe and secure move. It was gingerly moved up and into my apartment without a scratch on it. I am so happy I had them help me out. The ...

Moving LEGO.

Moving LEGO products can be difficult. Company took their time, did it correctly and delivered it to the Toy and Plastic Brick Museum in Bellaire, OH without a problem!

piano move across town

I had to ship my piano across town. I was told to try uShip which I had never heard of or used. It was very easy to use. Several service providers bid on the piano within one hour of posting the piano. I accepted a rebid. They called and the move got set up for the day I had entered on the site. The day of the move, the Service Provider came and did a very professional job of moving the piano onto ...

Coast to coast move

Moved boxes from LA to NYC and got a number of competitive bids. UShip helped us get our things in a timely manner and in great condition for a really good price.

Perfect Timing

I needed something to be picked up right away, and my service provider responded quickly with a very reasonable bid. Both pick-up and delivery timing worked out perfectly. I saved so much money--and time--over using a big name moving van lines to move furniture for just one room. I would definitely use uShip and my provider (freebird69) again.

Fantastic experience shipping my piano and personal items.

My piano sat in my mom's living room in Missouri for 36 years. I have not live there for 27 years and moved to California 16 years ago. But I always knew someday my piano would come home to me again. Well, this year, my mom decided to move to a retirement community so that time was now. Of course at this point, the piano's value is mostly sentimental so cost effectiveness was important. I kn ...

Piano for Grandkids

We hired Frank & Lois to ship a piano from IN to WI. Frank & Lois were awesome in communication and service. Frank wrapped the piano with LOTS of padding and then shrink wrap. He also took the piano bench apart and wrapped each piece with padding before wrapping with shrink wrap. We thought it would be impossible to get the piano down the basement at the destination because of the sharp an ...

Piano Move

I purchased a piano for my wife's Christmas as a surprise. I bought it from a man who had it listed on Craig's list. I had to move this item aqpprox. 60 miles and really had no way to do it. Strauss123 gave me a very fair bid that I accepted. I was going to meet them at the point of orgin but the night before the move day my wife fell down a flight of nine icy stairs and fractured some ribs an ...

Great Experience

I needed to ship several large framed paintings back to the artist. My experience with uShip was great. I saved several hundred dollars using uShip and would highly recommend them. My service provider was prompt, courteous, and professional. I would use uShip exclusively in the future.

1860 Rosewood Bed

Uship is a great way to find a reputable shipper at your convenience. I use "Feedback" ratings when choosing a shipper. If the shipper has any Negative Feedback or insufficient Feedback, I will move on to someone else that is squeaky clean....even at a higher price. I primarily ship antique furniture that is delicate and requires special care. This is the reason that Feedback ratings are so import ...

The sale and delivery of a pine hutch.

I had been searching for a way to get a piece of furniture from Tupelo, MS to Industry,TX at a reasonable price. After talking with several firms that wanted more than the customer paid for the piece to deliver it is when I began surfing the webb. When I came across uShip I gave them a try and rest is history. It was a smooth and seamless experience. Seller is happy and the customer is hap ...

Such a good service!

I was searching for ages to find a courier I could trust and uship is excellent. I tried Shipley but didn't get any bids. Got much swifter responses with this site. Happy with all.

Great resource for shipping large items

UShip provided access to the the perfect solution for my shipping situation which involved moving a large and awkward exercise machine from Chicago to the northeast. It really simplified what initially looked like a problematic issue.


I wanted to ship my piano, given to me by my grandmother to my son rather than just get rid of it. It has been in my mother's house in NJ since and she has been deceased for 3 years. When I was going to dispose of it, my son wanted it. So, I had bids on moving it. Brian of BGS rate was quite acceptable. Less than I thought it would cost and it enabled me to finally get the piano there. At fi ...

Mountain transport

Mike brought a table and chairs from San Antonio to Los Angeles for me. The pick-up person praised his reliability and everything arrived safe and sound. He was great. Thank you!!


That's the second time i used u-ship, and now i need again, they always have a professional company and the services are great Thank you Uship Fabio


First time i have ever used uship and since i've used you guys I have recommended you to all my friends and family. Really good service and i couldn't be happier.

moms goods

My mom passed away and i am on limited income and they were very helpful and i appreciated all they did for me.

Great Experience shipping a piano

I'd visited a friend in the Dallas area during Thanksgiving and was asked if I wanted a piano that needed to be gotten rid of. All I had to do was get it back to Houston. I originally thought of buying a one-way ticket to fly back to Dallas and rent a U-Haul truck to load and drive the piano back myself with the help of a family member. However, this past Friday, my friend called me and asked i ...

I won't look for shipping anywhere else

My father-in-law recently passed away, and my mother-in-law was shipping some of their belongings to others in the family. She was very frustrated trying to ship a grandfather clock from San Diego to Oregon because local shippers were quoting her over $1,000 to do this! She asked me to help find a way to do this more cost effectively, so in my search of shipping options I ran across u-ship. I figu ...

very enjoyable, I recommend

is very good to have this kind of service for the people of Mexico to collect goods thanks and move on with steve surprised me to speak Spanish is good to have this type of recures to speaking tanks

Piano moving

These guys were great with my in-town move: a spinet piano. They delivered the piano without issue, and even helped me move my washer and dryer from the garage into the laundry room! Nice guys. Would use them again!

Shipment of Specialty Fabric

UShip is an excellent way to move items. This is the third time I have used their service. This last shipment had special meaning as it was my Mother's specialty fabric. She was an International Artist and her wish was to have her fabric sent to a monastery in MA upon her death. She passed away in Sep 2010. I used UShip to locate a company to ship this special shipment. The driver arrived on ...

Shipping Toy Train Table

Not only was I able to ship a homemade train table for my grandson for Christmas but certainly for a much lower price than renting a truck or using traditional shipping methods. If everyone on here is this good I see no problem with shipping more items.

Family Piano

I needed to ship my mom's piano. A year ago I tried to ship it and checked into prices at moving companies. They were $800-1200! We were going to ship last year with uship, but the shipper went bankrupt and canceled. I had given up but then decided to try one more time on uship. This time, I had many bids and everything worked out perfectly. I spent $488 and got my piano in less than a week! ...

Shippng a crate with artwork to my galley in the US

I am a Canadian artist based in Toronto. Occasionally I need to ship my large scale oil paintings, framed, to my dealer in SF. I built this crate that was 88"x60"x16" to put 6 large painting inside. Through Uship I was able to accept a bid from Jones LTL who are brokers for several carriers. The carrier in this case was YRC inc. The driver who picked up the crate was very experienced, he was able ...

Piano shipping

I was shipping my grandmother's piano from Columbus, MS to Fort Walton Beach, FL. I stumbled across the uShip website during my search for a "professional piano mover". Trying to pick between all the bidders was absolutely nerve-wracking, only because they all seemed so qualified and it was hard to choose who I thought would be the best carrier for me. According to the website, I paid about the ...

Piano Transport

advertised for a company to ship a piano from Oxford to Cambridge, having phoned various companies and been quoted prices ranging from £280 to £490 decided to give uship a go. Had a couple of quotes and chose the lowest at £140. Good service and careful removal of the piano. Communications was good and a propmt service whne we asked for it, very accomodating.

Viscount Princeton Organ

The excellent service of Mountain Transport made it possible for us to obtain this instrument in spite of the cross-country distance. Thank you, Mike!

New to uShip

So far, our experience with uShip has been great. The bids we received were significantly lower than the quotes from many of our local shippers. We are in constant need to transport delicate antiques, so we are very cautious when it comes to shipping. The shipper we used was very efficient and fast and we will continue to use uShip in the future.

Baby Cradle

My dad built this cradle for all of his grandchildren. It has been to Oklahoma, Texas, Germany, Georgia and now California. We were very worried we would not be able to get it here safely and in time for my new grandson. My grandson was born Friday and will be coming home Monday. The cradle arrived Sunday in perfect time. I heard about uShip and Tony from Extracare Transport called and gu ...

Piano Shipment

Put out the bid for the piano to go from Pittsburgh to Florida. Within a few days I had four good offers. Chose Samples Transport Service because not only did they have great feedback, they also gave the best price. Contacted them for pick-up arrangements, they picked-up within two days and delivered within three days. Everything went perfectly smooth. This transaction saved me upwards of $25 ...

Leslie 122RV arrived safe and sound

I needed a vintage Leslie speaker shipped from Florida to a Hammond tech in New Jersey. As with anything Hammond, shipping is a deal breaker and most want to find something close to home. I'm overseas and needed a convenient, not so complicated reliable shipper who would carry the speaker to its special destination. As I have experiences with musical equipment arriving damaged in the hands of the ...
