Mijn uShip-ervaring.

Ik heb deze website gevonden via internet. Ik vind het makkelijk te gebruiken en voor het eerste keer. Voor het eerste ervaring, ik ben blij en ik zou het opnieuw gebruiken. Het transporteur was zeer goed. Goed prijs ook. Ik heb hem zelf ontmoeten bij het ophalen van de goederen. Verder geen anderen commentaar.

Great service

After using uShip for the first time, I am impressed with the auction style of securing shipments. I have even recommended this method of securing freight to my brother in-law who has now used this service to move his vehicle from Ontario to Alberta. I would recommend this web site to anyone looking to get a good price on freight quotes.

Chipboard from Chippenham

Timber merchant wouldn't deliver oversized almost unliftable sheets of chipboard, Kev wasn't daunted, arrived only a short while after his ETA, helped offload and carry in the monstrous panels in exchange for a cup of tea.

60' Wooden Sailboat Mast

56ft, over 100years old wooden mast. Nobody had a answer how to get the mast from Maine to Florida in one piece. uShip is the answer.

1 Pallet - 13 Boxes of Hardwood Laminate Flooring

My carrier was beyond all expectations! Perfect amount of communications, super fast shipping (even a day earlier, and even on the weekend!), just a wonderful person -- like your long lost friend! Jereld is the man to use for your shipping needs! Thanks USHIP for introducing us!

5 Loose doll houses

I was a little skeptical...there was no verbal communication with the main offices though I called repeatedly. Finally I took a leap of faith and tried the service anyway. Jay and Paula proved worth the leap. The transaction went smooth and I will definitely use uship.com again in the future.

First Time Customer

Came across uship.com by chance. What an excellent all round experience. Highly recommended for shippers and clients.

Delivery of Bean sticks

Very happy, put request up and had two responses very quickly and accepted one which was reasonable and delivery driver was great and one happy customer.

Fast, Reliable, and Excellant Communication

Very happy with Elite Movers. This was my first time using the company. It will not be my last. Very good experience. Matt was a great help!

Wood Beams

Shipped 4000 pounds of wood beams to my house. Once the Ebay auction closed, Joe had the beams at my house the same day he picked them up ( 10 hour drive). Did a great job, will use again to ship conus

Lumber shipment.

Carrier got shipment of lumber to me quickly but did not have the necessary equipment to remove it from their own truck. I guess they thought the average residence also has forklift services. Had to hire someone to help with unloading which meant additional expense that was unplanned, but shipment was in good shape and was eventually off-loaded into my garage. Beware over-sized shipments when carr ...


300kg Kirschholzstämme von Privat auf Palette, quer durch D, 1100km direkter Weg, und das alles für 130€. Wenn man weiß was heute eine Zugfahrkarte für diese Strecke kostet, dann bin ich am Überlegen, ob ich mich nicht das nächste Mal auch mit USHIP versende. Vielen Dank JG

7 oak barrels shipped from UK to Ireland

I found U ship through google. I was very impressed with the service, the website was easy to use, the email updates were very helpful, the feedback on the shipping companies was excellent and gave me a confidence in choosing a shipping company

very good experience overall

I was a bit skeptical since it was my first time using Uship. But this will definitely be my shipping preference from on.

Great experience

This was my first encounter with uShip. Not being an experienced shipper at all I was very leary. I found uShip easy to use. The reviews I was able to read and the profiles of the providers helped me to overcome my fears of using such a service. I saved 30% in frieght cost by using uShip instead of a common carrier. I knew EXACTLY when my shipment was to arrive. Not "24-36" hour notice. ...

Doors Will Travel

7 Doors from Bristol to Plymouth ebay Purchase Good experience of using the site. Not sure how much I saved using uShip, but I was happy with the amount charged. ( Though you uShip seem to take a high commission 20 % approx for providing just the websit network ) The delivery by ' goldwing1969 ' a 2 man team was successfully & professionally completed within 3 days. I would use ...

First experience

I came across Uship in a search to find a better and more economical freight service. My account representaive (Ken) went above and beyond to help with the issues that I had. My first booking did not show up after 3 days, and left negative feedback putting the blame on me. The second booking, increased the rate, and even after paying the extra, did not show when they said they would. On the third ...

first time uship-er

Used uship for the first time the other day after winning some antique doors on ebay. Found the service to be excellent and very easy to use. Resulted in a successful shipment at a very good price, in fact I couldn't have done it for less myself taking only the cost of fuel into account. My service provider - viper294 - was excellent with all aspects of the shipment from communication to packag ...

Business Shipment

Around the Clock bid very aggressively, and at first I was a little skepical about using uShip. Doyin was great with communication, keeping me informed either via email, phone, or text. A few things that he could not control affected the original delivery date of Monday, but a rearranged date of Wednesday was made, and they arrived earlier than the original time, which was great for us! All of ...

Excellent uShip.com experience

I had a load to ship from Florida to Pennsylvania. With uShip, everything was easy. Selected the bidder with the best rating and had confidence throughout the process that my load was in good hands. Delivered on time, on cost, no problems or worry.

Two short planks

We design and build highly insulated garden offices and annexes using best quality UK materials. see www.iobuild.co.uk. On our latest job our wood supplier over enthusiastically sent us too much Scottish larch cladding. We are a small company that doesn't own any commercial vehicles and it would have been dreadful to have thrown the spare wood away. Uship came to the rescue and we managed to sh ...

Happy experience shipping our books

After several frustrating attempts to find a shipper, this one gave us a bid. He delivered on all that he said he would do in a timely and pleasant way. We were thankful to find a reasonable fee as we are a charitable organization and must be very cautious about how we spend the money that is donated to our cause. We will be shipping books again, and we will be sure to use uShip in the future. ...

Great experience shipping some expensive specialty construction products

He is a great listener and has great customer service skills. He inspected the load for me and advised me, as though I was there 1200 miles away, when he picked the load up, to make sure it was as the SELLER had described. Due to weather delays, when he dropped off the load at my location, he worked his schedule around my desire to spend the day with my kids at the local FAIR. In his dealings w ...

Important inventory - arrived undamaged and on time

I had never used Uship before, and I was doubtful. But Uship had been recommended by a trusted friend, so I though I’d try it out. I was shipping two heavy palettes of printed matter from one specialty printer to another. The shipment represented all of the inventory for my "Instant Pool Card" business for the next two years, so it was essential that it arrive safely. If my shipment was lost, i ...


Needed to ship 8 empty barrels from Napa Valley to remote Idaho area. Listed my needs on uShip. Very easy to use, had a bid same day, and saved over $400. Picked-up on time delivered on time, in great shape! What more could you want? Michele

First time using USHIP and i was pleased in every way possible..fair priced ,Easy to set up the listing and accepting or rejecting bids,and safe delivery.Shipped 120 long boxes of comic books and they arrived as they left..Well done USHIP!


I had bids almost immediately and the shipper contacted us rapidly and we got the best price and the best service. What a great change of pace!!! i had a large shipment of wood planks, and S3 Logistics could not have been more professional or responsive. they contacted the shipping side right away and were perfectly professional and stayed in good communication with me. I saved over $1,000 ...

Storage Boxes to be shipped from Pompano to Tallahassee

This was my first experience with uShip, and the experience was mixed. I orginally was booked with Move-It International, and it turned out to be a very bad experience. There was a delay on my end in the beginning since it took awhile for the pick up location to have the storage boxes ready for shipment. Instead of canceling the contract Move-It International assured me they would be able to st ...

Shipment of 22 pallets.

I needed to ship 22 pallets of product to a residential location and didn't know where to begin. Then I found UShip! Working through UShip was a wonderful experience! I would definitely use this service again if needed in the future. When working through the bidding process, all of the bids that came in were using a large truck with issues surrounding weight limitations on the residential s ...

Great working with a professional

I had to ship a pallet of wood and everyone was trying to charge more than the wood cost to ship it. Ernest was very reasonable and I was able to ship my pallet efficiently and economically. He was very professional and I will continue to use him for my shipping. I felt like my business was actually important to him. It was nice for a change.

Shipping flooring

The shipment was 2700 sq ft of flooring. It ended up mist of it had to be unpalleted and loose packed which made it take a lot longer than anticipated. They worked hard to make it happen without complaint. I am glad they were chosen for the shipment.

100 Boxes of Printing

Great way to ship and to save money. The service providers I've used have always been good communicators and provide punctual service.

pallet picked up and delivered - no problems

The truck arrived in the agreed time frame and as far as I know arrived in good condition and on time at the other end.

Great experience shipping overstock books

In searching many companies for a fair shipping price. I googled and found UShip. Having never used an online company such as, this it was a good learning expirence. I had several overstocked books that need to get to the author's business. The first bid did not work out as planed but it was an easy process to relist and the second was great. The shipper was very prompt and courtous. They wer ...

1876 barn beams arrive safely

We had to find someone willing to pick-up and deliver 22 old hand hewn barn beams, an unusual and heavy load. Coyote Express (taylorade 8) did not hesitate at all to take on this job. The beams arrived safely and this provider was wonderful to work with. We will definitly use USHIP again.

My uship experience

I am so happy wih the shipping! I was shipping 1 pallet of books for my business. The site was easy and kept my updated on the bids. I chose Frank, who had the closest bid to my desired payment. I saved about 150.00 on shipping! Frank left the pallet dolly here and is coming back later for it so I could move the pallet on my property to unload. I couldn't be happier! I will definetly use this serv ...

Shipping company's were knocking on my door..no more cold calling around to get the best deal.This was my first time that I have used USHIP to have any merchandise delivered. I have to say I am now a USHIP customer for life. I saved almost $500 over UPS prices. The service was excellent and was a very enjoyable. AGAIN, I did'nt have to search for the right company..they found me and allowed ME to ...

Comic books get moved

After closing my comic book store, I needed to move hundreds of boxes of books about 60 miles, from the store up to my hometown. I tried hard to estimate the weight and size, but shipping and freight are not my strong suits, so it was difficult for me to gauge how big a truck would be needed. Luckily, I found uShip and hooked up with a local, personal shipper who knew his own vehicle and was abl ...

Great experience using this service

I needed to ship a large quantity boxes from the west coast to the east coast. Decided to google the web for shipping companies. I came across uShip. It was fast, easy and the responses were good. I was able to get 3 bids in about 2 days. The company I picked was on several factors. Price, communication, and pickup date. This company met all my needs. I had all my boxes shipped out that sa ...

Good experience on my first large shipment.

I had to ship 72 pallets of books plus heavy shelving and office equipment. As I found out, good help is hard to find (in regards to loading and unloading shipments). But the shippers that I booked with uShip were great! They were very understanding, patient, and lighthearted - despite my many blunders. They also were very experienced and helpful. Taught me how to work a forklift correctly ...



would recommend uship

I live in Denver and have a house in Virginia Beach. I had to find someone to ship 3 tons of rough cut lumber from my house in Virginia Beach, to my brother in NY who could sell it. I used uship to find the right company to do the job. Everything worked out fine and I did it all from my home in Denver by phone and computer. Great system.

My uship experience

The first company that I used on USHIP did not show up and did not call, and was totally unprofessional, but i decided to try it again, and the second guy was a total pro, had great service, and i will definitely keep using uship. I got a bargain only paid 343 for a shipment that would of cost in the thousands using ups, or fedex. I would advice anyone that is using uship to consider the reviews a ...

Great experience, absolutely no problems

We have a small company that makes beekeeping equipment that occassionaly ships a few pallets a year for special orders. The broker/carrier we had been using had been going up in price, adding on fuel tarifs and such. The last price was so much higher that we decided to look around. We found UShip on the internet and decided to give that a go. I was surprised at the list of bids we got. We pic ...

Great experience shipping my lumber

I got estimates of $1200 for my shipment and shipped it through uship for $700. The people brought it to my house and helped me hand unload and stack it. What more can I say?

Had no idea this service existed. Terrific!

We had 35 cartons of books to ship out of state and had spent a few months researching various options--none to our satisfaction. Stumbled upon the uShip site and the entire transaction from listing to delivery was accomplished in one week at a significant reduction in cost. How's THAT for expediency!

Very smooth transaction

I am very happy with their service. i did not thinkk it would happen that quick. Would definately use this person again.

Excellent service from this carrier. Very prompt and friendly.

I had to have flooring delivered from LA to San Jose. The whole process happened faster than I expected. The communication as to when he would arrive was very helpful in scheduling my time. I would definately use this carrier again.

Great Experience shipping our yurt!

We had a 30' yurt that needed to be delivered from MN to PA. It was packed in a avery large crate that turned out to be not to sturdy. No problem for Earl. He unloaded the crate onto the truck onto pallets and when delivered he again inloaded the yurt piece by piece onto crates, tarped it and shrinked wrapped it. I was very impressed with his work. Thanks again Earl! L & I
