piano transportation

Very friendly and helpful company who kept me well infomed about the progress of the collection/delivery of my piano. The piano was handled with care and delivered to the exact destination required. Great service

Hammond Organ Move

I had to relocate a compact but heavy 50 year old Hammond electro mechanical organ for a local move of about 20 miles. Bids started coming in quickly but I waited several days before selecting a mover as I wanted to make a competitive but careful choice of who would move this fine old organ.

Antique sleigh base.

I was worried at first about shipping it and using uship. But now I am glad that I did. Shane Fitzpatrick was GREAT!!!!! Thanks, Cam

family piano delivery

Our sister had a family piano at her home in Florida and we were unsure of the best way to get it up to Western New York. uShip was an affordable option that gave us many bids for the job. It was easy to communicate with the bidders to ask questions and clarify details. I would definitely use this service again.

mecca for rehabber

Although I was highly motivated to complete this transaction on my own the last minute fix ups on my truck and the low gas milage could not have been beat by this UShip driver's low bid. He saved me from paying storage fees by his timely acceptance of my bid which would have barely covered my gas costs. Talking with the person who was getting angry with me for waiting so long before making the pic ...

Hot tub shipping

I needed a hot tub picked up and delivered from across town. There was no way I could do this by myself. I found Uship on a google search and after one week I accepted a bid for $255. I couldn't be more pleased.

Rebate program is a HUGE HASSLE

As with many, many uShip users, when I went to claim the rebate for which uShip's pop-up ads repeatedly said I was eligible, a scouring of the uShip website revealed not even one link to the rebate program. I had to read multiple user complaints in the Forums before finding the byzantine maze of steps to be completed - which still require that a physical form be completed and mailed to uShip be ...

Shipped piano

and it arrived with nicks because it really wasn't an one person job to move the piano up a bunch of steps. The price was right, so I guess that's what happens.


For many years I have wanted to transport my childhood piano to London. I was told about the uship website and posted a shipping request. Bids came in as soon as I'd finished writing the description. Once I'd accepted a bid, my beloved piano arrived the next morning! A fantastic website with some really decent, hard working guys.

Two chairs

I had to two antique armchairs collected from two different cities in France. Delivered to London with no problems at all.

painting shipment

i had a painting shipped from nc to ny and it was a super great experience!!! it arrived quickly and with special care. i couldn't be happier


My folks found our daughter a used piano in Northeastern Ohio. We live in South Central PA and had to arrange getting the piano here. Samples Transport Service not only had a competitive bid, but also were local to my parents area and could move the piano quickly. They made what could have been both expensive and time consuming into a pleasant experience. Uship is a great service. T ...

Excellent Experience

This was my first time using Uship and i was concerned trusting our family heirloom with an unknown shipper. Uship provided their feedback and I had all the information I needed to make my decision. Excellent service and I am now using Uship to move my home.

Great experience shipping my jet ski.

I was trying to ship a jet ski and some other items to me across country. Uship allowed me to find somebody who could pick up the stuff in Fla with out me being there and have it delivered to me in San Diego. Everything was excellently handled and made my life much easier. Everything arrived when it was supposed to and in the condition I left it.

HD Polyurethane Railings delivered ahead of schedule.

I had a quote and an ETA, but Corie Ann and Johnny were able to make the delivery a month sooner than expected. The buyer was thrilled and we aim to beat our customers expectations. Thank you!

Organ and bench shipment

Mr Samples did first bid, answered my questions quickly and left quickly to get job done...communicated well and made both the florida people happy but me as well. No damage, and polite. I am handicapped so he did it all. took old one to garage and set new one in place. It was expensive organ and kid gloves were the way it was handled. The U ship site was amazingly easy to use and things moved ...

Shipping a huge fragile painting

Local couriers quoted £180 and £160 plus VAT for this job. I was reluctant to use one of the big national carriers as the painting was extreemly fragile and needed very careful handling. Thanks to uShip I was able to find a specialist art/antique carrier to do the job for £74 including VAT and insurance. The painting arrived at its destination safely within 24 hours of collection. I would use uShi ...

great experience moving our furniture

We had a very large grand piano shipped from Portugal to Swansea.I would like to stress that Pathfinder were honest about there little experience in moving pianos, but I had made provision for the piano to have professional assistance either end of the journey. My parents are very old and quite ill, and Pathfinder were very courteous towards them (it was my father's piano and furniture that was be ...


The process was simple and straightforward. The service from Nick's team was great. The merchandise was delivered with no issues. The Longhorns are back in Texas where they belong.

Barber chair transport

Tried the free listing but was at the mercy of having an uncleared personal check from buyer to whom I arranged shipping. After relisting chair after payment had cleared no bids from previous bidders. They probably figured I was holding out for a lower price. I then relisted with a featured listing and then incurred two bidders and picked the one with the highest feedback. Thank God for Tom an ...

Shipping Fragile Items

My shipment was fragile and it was important that it arrive safely. Using this service provider was a great choice. His price was extremely fair and I had reservations because of the fagile nature of the item. My merchandise was safe and arrived intact - no problems at all. Keith communicated often and provided updates during the trip. He is professional and very polite. I would recommend him ...

Piano: Tucson to Salt Lake

Shipped a piano from Tucson to Salt Lake City. After the first accepted bid fell through (his truck blew up), I missed out on a couple of bids because of small windows of opportunity. However, I finally got a bid that worked. The price was cheaper even than renting a U-Haul trailer and doing it myself and almost half the price of the big guys. I'll definitely check uShip first next time I've got s ...

Rocking Horse Shipped

I have wanted to buy a rocking horse for my little girl for quite some time. We don't have a car, so that put me off getting one from ebay because I imagined it would be difficult to organise delivery. Finding out about uship was great because it made organising the delivery so easy. I got the bids in before I won the item and then it was easy to arrange delivery with one of the couriers once I ha ...

Church piano from pastor's home to church.

Our pastor has a beautiful 100 year old upright piano that has been in his family for over for years. His father acquired it from unclaimed storage and gave it to his aunt who had it completely rebuilt. Later the keys were replaced and the piano was refinished. Our pastor needed more room at home for his oldest daughter and will keep it at the church for all to enjoy. The Uship service provide ...

Great experience!!!!!!!!

I was totally in a jam and not only did you guys come through in a very timely manner but at a price that far exceeded my expectations! I was kept informed as to the location and time of arrival and no extra expences! Thanks again and If I ever need this thing moved again I am calling you first!

My airplane arrived safely and ontime.

Uship service worked wonderfully for me. It gave me an opportunity not only to get the price I was looking for but it also allowed me to see what the shipper was intended to use to ship the item. Cool sight, and easy to use. Thanks. Joe L

Transported Item that couldn't be shipped

I had a taxidermied Bass that I couldn't ship through regular methods and could not figure out how to get it from Santa Fe, NM to Tomball, Texas. My daughter recommend trying Uship. I didn't even know that such a business existed. It was easy to set up an account; place my add and work with the provider. I was so pleased with service. I would/will recommend it to everyone I know.

Juwel Trigon 190 litre Fishtank and cabinet

I wanted to purchase a second hand aquarium from a person on Ebay but I was worried how I could fit such a heavy load item into my small car. I used the courier service to save me the hassle and worry of collecting and delivering myself and Uship came recommended by someone on Ebay. I do believe it saved me a good amount of money as it was about 30% cheaper than I had been quoted elsewhere. I woul ...

Pioneer PDP-LX5090

Terry kept me updated on status of my shipment, and delivered a very heavy TV in tip-top condition. Highly recommended!

Exceptional Service!

We placed the order on June 8 to ship a piano from California to Arizona for our grandson. The piano was picked up on June 11 and was delivered before promised on June 13. The contract called for up to 21 days, and it arrived in 3! The piano was surrounded by blankets and covered with plastic. Not a scratch on it. The driver was personable, friendly, efficient, and handled the piano as if it w ...

piano shipping

Shipped a piano from my family home in the Chicago area out to Seattle, where I currently live. Didn't know how to find a mover for such a job, and was pleased that UShip made the search easy. I would recommend the UShip service and JPS Pianos (the mover).


Can't say enough good things about a great service. Keep it up, we Ebayers need this service Mucho!!!!! Roland Mullin

Piano shipment

Used uShip to get a baby grand piano moved from FL to MN, Got a bid from JP's piano moving, and they did a great job, at a reasonable price.

uShip Experience

I got bids in excess of $2,000 to ship a baby grand piano across the country. I used your site and got a bid of $1,200. The movers did a great job. You saved me considerable money. I would use this site again in a minute. Thank you, Gary

Great experience, saved me time and money with personalized service

I had to ship a large sculpture that wouldn't fit in a car or a minivan. Delivery with a rented truck would have been too expensive and shipping through major companies like UPS and FedEx was impossible due to size, and building a crate would have tripled the weight as well. When I looked into uShip, I was amazed to find that I could select to ship un-packaged objects because that's what I would h ...


Piano weighed far more than described in the ebay lising, however the guys delivered and moved it in without complaining.

Piano Delivery

This was by the far the easiest way to obtain competitive quotes without hours spent contacting companies. Will use again!

2 x rocking horses, 2 pick up points all the way from down south to north of aberdeenshire

Excellent service, having been on uship for the 1st time i found it esy to use and very useful. My courier I ended up with I have to say was just perfect in every respect and I now have my 2 rocking horses.

Moving my Princess Palace

When I first met the Uship.com team we were moving all of our inventory into our new Princess Palace. The team showed up with smiles and ready to work. They were loading up so efficiently and quickly. All of my 800+ formal gowns, heels, purses, jewelry and accessories we moved and kept in order, it was great! The second shipment they did for us, moving all of our 800+ formal gowns and heels to ...

my old piano

I have a very old piano that I needed moved and no one wanted to do it . I was unable to lift it myself after several attempts ended up removing the leg. I felt it was time to ask for help. This company was the best, curtious, punctual professional, caring and priced more than fairly. I was extremely happy and would highly recommend them to any9ne that has moving needs. thanks

Arcade Game Shipped

This service was the only viable option I could find to ship my arcade game -- worked out very well. Game was delivered timely and in good shape -- and the bid was about $100 less than I thought I'd have to pay!

pool table moved

I needed my pool table moved to Downingtown, PA from Lima, Ohio. Several bids were placed online and with little muscle work, the contact was made and service was completed within a few days. The experience was great and comes strongly recommended.

Heavy Player Piano

I own an upright player piano. The thing has a solid steel block in it and those who have moved it before have told me it is the heaviest piano they have ever moved. I have used uShip before with good results. So when it was time to move it again, I utilized uShip had a bid in a relative short time. I ended up asking Mike if he would also haul an additional piece and he agreed. He was gre ...

Great Experience Shipping my Artwork!

I found myself in possession of a very interesting bit of gaming history - a diorama used to 'fake' 3d for a game created before computers had 3d acceleration. The problem - I had to figure out shipping myself, from across the Atlantic. I found that UPS had affordable shipping and a drop-off location close by where it needed to be picked up. I thought surely there had to be companies out there ...

First time to use uShip

I never even knew it existed! Bought a sunbed on Ebay and needed to get it from Sheffield to Milton Keynes ASAP and uShip did the trick. I had it all organised within a few hours and at a much lower cost than I expected! Thanks uShip!What a great idea and very environmentally friendly too... if we can make use of traffic coming back from a journey empty it makes perfect sense!

Surfboard shipping-longboard

First time user with uship and was seamless transaction without any problems. Item was longer than most carriers would carry at a reasonable price. Item was auctioned local pickup however I was able to secure shipping where normally this item would not even be available to me. well done! Would do it again and will. Thanks

piano move from Essex to Yorkshire

Didn't know how I was going to shift it, so drew in my breath and looked for a delivery - luckily found this site and a very good price indeed - if I'd hired a van and paid the petrol and hired a piano trolley it wouldn't have been any cheaper.

Worry Free Antiques Shipping

I found exactly what I was looking for on ebay. The problem was that the antique oak icebox was for "local pick-up" only in California and I was in Texas. I was disappointed but not giving up. A transport company recommended by the seller quoted $750. Blindly, I logged onto UShip which I had only vaguely heard about through other ebay users. I put in my ridiculous price of no more than $200 and ...

Excellent experience getting my fragile VW Dealership Sign shipped to me.

I found an original VW Dealership Sign on Ebay. The seller stated that shipping would have to be arranged by the buyer. I live in Florida and the seller was in New Hampshire. I was surely backed into a corner with very little options until I remembered hearing about UShip.com. I looked up the website and listed my needs one evening and by the next morning I had accepted my second bid. I could not ...
