My First UShip Experience

I was afraid of shipping a large format printer as they are pretty delicate and sensitive to bumps but had a great experience. Everything went as planned for a reasonable price. Actually cheaper than the gas I would have spent to pick it up myself.

Took excellent care of a delicate object. Were communicative regarding the situation of where it was, etc. When the truck came and it wasn't in there - they were very apologetic and reimbursed me appropriately. Thanks!!

Perfect Delivery

As a first time user of this site I was hesitant at first, but quickly realized I was dealing with a professional. The delivery was early and in perfect condition.

No fees!

I tried uShip having had no success finding a courier who could deliver at the weekend through Shiply, a courier search website I had previously used. I managed to get a courier at very short notice (10pm on a Friday night before delivery on Saturday). The delivery service I received was very good and antique furniture arrived safe and on time, with good communication from the courier throughout ...

Quick & Easy Shipping for a reasonable cost

After my Dad passed we cleared his house to sell it and brought items we wanted to keep to our house. My daugther wanted a long wooden buffet but it would not fit in the back of her truck to take from Chicago to Kentucky. I found uship online and the service was very intuitive. You put a description of your shipping item (+ weight, measurements), where you want it to go, where to pick up and ...

I saved big with uShip!

I had been looking for a specific color hardtop for my Jeep Wrangler for two years. When I finally found one in my price range, it was 500 miles away. I assumed shipping such a bulky item would be prohibitive, and I figured I was out of luck. On the seller's suggestion, I tried uShip and had several quotes by the next day. When the bidders started competing for the job, the price went to a reas ...

Great first experience with UShip

This was my first experience with UShip, so I was nervous initially. My shipper was very easy to speak with and put me at ease right away. He was great to work with and easily accomodated my schedule. I would definitely use UShip again - and look for this shipper again.

Shipped a 144 lb 44" X 44" glass coffee table

Due to my parents moving, I decided to take their glass coffee table which needed to be shipped from New York to Colorado. After a professional mover quoted a bid that was ridiculously expensive, I found U Ship online and decided to give it a try. I received several bids within 12 hours and chose a mover who happened to be leaving the New York area later that same week and was making a stop in Co ...

Great First Experience

I purchased a 1960 Oldsmobile hood which the seller claimed could be shipped via Greyhound. It unfortunately was too big. I tried UPS, but they were never satisfied with the packaging. Although they never said, it seemed like they would only be satisfied with a full box or crate. For crying out loud, it's a solid piece of metal, not a Ming vase! Fortunately I discovered uShip. The hood arrived saf ...

Piano Delivery

Bgs Delivery provided a very good service and was agressively priced. I was very happy with the overall experience.

Grandma's China

The problem was how to transfer a full service for 12, heirloom, vintage, complete set of 70 year old porcelain china from MN to CA. While not 'heavy', extremely, extremely fragile -- and unreplaceable. All conventional methods were a) unaffordable, b) risky, c) expensive, and d)unpredictable. Because I maintained flexibility in my desired pickup and delivery dates, LongEarLover's services and ...



Shipping my artwork

I needed large delicate mosaics made of Plexiglas shipped from Ashland,Oregon to L.A. California after a show. Seattledriver gave me a great price, and "delivered" on all their committments (pun intended!). They're fair minded, eager to please, and seem to have quality at the forefront of their business. This is my first time using Uship, and I really like being able to post my shipping needs a ...

Moving Piano from Joplin to Jacksonville

I was pleased overall with the shipment. The piano was delivered on time and unharmed. I was expecting him to have help at the delivery site. I think his moving help was solicited online and did not show up so my sister-in-law had to help with the piano. This was not ideal, but it was not necessary the fault of the service provider. i would suggest he use reliable sources rather than random i ...


found the whole U ship process a lot easier than I expected! Absabs provided a great service - many thanks

Shipping of an antique stained glass window

We won a very large and very old stained glass window on ebay from someone who lives in Ohio and wasn't able to ship it for us. The seller recommend uship to us. At first it was a little confusing because we started getting bids right away and weren't sure how long we should wait to accept a bid but after a few days we realized we pretty much received all the bids we were going to get for our jo ...

Very convenient for busy people

I had limited time to search for a shipper for getting some art pieces imported recently. The art pieces arrived at a warehouse and they were heavy. I found this site and listed my shipment and within minutes I got bid. The site texts promptly and I selected a provider who promptly and seamlessly completed the job. Who need yellow pages?

I've used uShip twice

Most recently, I shipped a HUGE and very heavy toolbox only a few miles from my home to a Ford dealer only 2 miles away. The challenge was that the box weighs 2,000 pounds and is very top heavy and my home is on the top of a very steep hill with narrow brick streets and there is a high retaining wall on either side of my narrow driveway. None of my so-called friends was willing to lend a hand o ...

Moved a Pool Table across state

UShip was able to pair us with a mover to relocate a pool table from Central to Western NY, conveniently, economically, and efficiently. Yes, we'd use UShip again; things went very well...


There was a slight mis understanding over the weight of the cargo. We were in constant communication and agreed 100% amicably that I actually needed a different type of transportation.

Carefully taken apart, pins separately packaged each panel was wrapped separately and then wrapped in blankets. A++++++ I will call them for my next shipping.

Quick and easy

Within a few minutes of putting in the request for service, I had a positive response, confirmation of pick-up and delivery times and overall great service. Very happy that my life was made easier by uShip.

Shipping my piano from Seattle to Los Angeles

My first time on uShip and I'm very happy with how my experience turned out. I was shipping a Baldwin upright piano from Seattle to Los Angeles. It was my childhood piano and was still at my parents home, just sitting there unused. Now my daughter is taking piano lessons and I wanted to see if I could get my old piano to my place for less than it would cost to buy another one. It took a little whi ...

juke box

purchased on ebay, had no ideah how to ship. uship worked well for me. i got more than enough bids at my price. uships average shipping price was almost twice as high as the average quote i got for moving the juke box. i had called several juke dealers and all said i could ship anywhere in the 48 states for less than 350.00. my juke was delivered for 310.00 in perfect condition. i would use uship ...

Grand Piano

My home burned 4 years ago and I lost everything. Finally got it rebuilt and then found MY piano.....the sellers were having to juggle their time around closings cause they were selling and buying another home.... Jeff and his crew were gracious, professional, careful, treated my piano like they'd treat their own. Courteous, complimentary of my new home - made me feel like a million dollars wit ...

Piano Delivered

Outstanding Service, Just goes to show don't prejudge something when you first see it. Frank did an awesome job covering the piano and I can't believe he loaded a 400 pound piano by himself. Frank took great care when loading the piano. He did an outstand job covering it. My daughter whom received the Piano was also very impressed. I would use you agin if I need to ship anything else. Than ...

My father's piano

My father recently passed away and his baby grand piano was left to me. I had no idea of how to get this beautiful instrument to my home in Pennsylvania from Illinois. I went online and received quotes from a variety of piano movers. Then I found this site and when I received this bid from the Pianowizard, I was amazed at how quickly they were able to pick it up and deliver. I am extremely satis ...

Nickelodeon Piano

It's difficult to find a long distance shipper that offers both good value and special care in handling your long distance purchases of antiques. UShip offers a wide variety of shippers who specialize in what you want shipped, and also valuable feedback from those who have used the various shippers. I highly recommend UShip and will use them again!

Grandma's piano from MI to TX

I was able to acquire my grandparent's piano and required shipping from MI to TX. I saw the excellent reviews from Seatledriver and requested a bid from them. Needless to say, they came in at the lowest price, but their service is worth far more. Frank knows what he's doing in moving pianos and properly blankets and shrink wraps these delicate instruments well for shipping. I am even impressed ...

This is the BEST way to find reliable shipping for any item!! An Easy, dependable format!!

The great thing about feedback, is that you really can start to develop a trust for a shipper, when you see continued good experiences by others...And, I like the bidding, because it creates a competative platform, so that the customer really can get a very fair deal!! Sometimes the cheapest price is not always the best...But a good balance is created, when all the providers know that there are ot ...

One horse open Sleigh w/shafts

Scary to get started on U ship, for the first time, as I don't have a lot of computer experience, but once I was started, I had no trouble using your site. I will use U Ship again. Great Experience!!!!! B.L.Tenan

Mountain Transport art shipment

I searched & searched for an art-shipper reasonable rates to bring a piece from Mill Valley, CA to Seattle. Could not find one to fit my budget--even close to it! A friend steered me to uShip. It was easy to place my item up for bids & I got several. The reviews for Mike & Mountain Transport were overwhelming positive, his rates were excellent, and he thoroughly answered my several inquiries befo ...

Grandfather Clock

Clock was shipped with no problems. It was well packed. The process was extremely smooth with good communication throughout.

First rate service

Antique bed shipped from Essex to Inverness. Arrived well looked after with very friendly service. Definitely would recommend.

Piano move

The movers offered me the price I was looking for. I liked that I could view their profile, discuss their experience in moving pianos, and the moving plan before settling in on the deal. Although there were some unforseen circumstances in the moving process, they handled it well and completed the job as professionals. I was very happy they could get my piano moved to my new apartment, when I i ...

A great solution to a problem I thought impossible!

My mother recently left hospital in Cumbria following a stroke and moved to a Nursing home in Greater Manchester to be nearer me. The wheelchair she now needs was only delivered to the hospital after she had been discharged. One large courier firm went to collect it but refused the collection as the wheelchair was not boxed! I found this website via a search engine.The uShip website is easy to use ...

First-time user of uShip - Great Experience

I purchased a gumball machine online which the seller would not ship. I didn't know how I was going to get it from Montana to California in a way that wouldn't be prohibitively expensive. Fortunately, I discovered uShip. I followed the guidelines that were listed on the website regarding how to post the shipment and I received several bids - all at prices much lower than I would have paid Fed E ...

pearls piano

I was given an upright piano by a friend but had no idea how to get it from their house to mine. I found Uship online and asked for bids. Pipistrells quote was very reasonable and prompt. They contacted me as soon as I'd accepted it and the piano was delivered two days later. I couldn't have asked for better service. Uship is pretty good, although when I paid my deposit with payPal it bounced ...

Great experience with my first u-ship transaction!

I wanted to have my sauna shipped from Las Vegas to Erie, PA so I tried u-ship on a recommendation from my father. Well, needless to say, it was a great transaction that was easy to coordinate. Once I accepted George's bid, he took over and really came through. He was very good throughout the entire process and really took care of my unit like it was his own (in fact, he drove all night to get ...

Pool Table Shipping

I was moving and had to get my dad's antique pool table from Dallas to Denver to my brother. I looked into different optins to send it and they were very expensive. I knew I had to find a way and so I put a bid onto U SHip. Actually I had several great bids and several shippers I would have actually used. So many had great feedback and contacted me back right away. I chose Moveprotx because he was ...

cross-country with chris

He picked up items at out-of-the-way NH location and drove them at a fair price to Washington state. Kept in touch the whole way. Reliable and prompt and conscientious. Good man.

Rhonda's Piano

We heard of your company, "uship" and found someone very quickly. Thank you for taking the work out of this for us. We had a piano that has been in our family for a long time and it was important for us to find someone that would take care with it and not cost us too much. You found that person for us. Thank you and yes, if we need to ship anything again, we would definitely use your services.

Moving My Spa

Shawn had such a positive attitude, I was scared and very concerned for everyones safty but Shawn and his crew were very professional, had all the issues under control, a joy to have work for me. He certainly earned his paycheck! Good Luck to you and your family Shawn.

First timer

This was my first time using Uship and I had no idea it would be so easy and economical. By giving me an option of providers, I could choose one that I felt comfortable with in personality, price, and services offered. It allowed me to customize the right kind of provider I wanted with my particular shipping need. It also saved me a lot of time in terms of trying to hunt down an appropriate shippi ...

Piano move

Needed to move a piano to a friend's house. Posted the job on uship, received 3 bids all cheaper than prices quoted by known London movers, exchanged some Q and A with potential movers and accepted one bid based on price, past ratings and flexibiity of service. Piano was moved professionally and at a time conveneint to both myself and my friend. Great service!

Upright Bass

I needed an extremely fragile musical instrument shipped from Minnesota to Ohio. I was unaware of white glove service, but it helped me get my upright bass safely to my house with out a hitch, forklift, crate, pallet, loading dock, 18 wheeler, or a minute of lost sleep. Without uShip and their feedback system, I would have been unable to connect with and trust Steve Mulder, who delivered my bass ...
