uShip makes freight delivery as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1 | Create Your Listing
In order to find the best option out of the many cheap haulage companies around you need to be as specific with your listing as possible. This will help to match you with the right service for the items you need moving. For instance, we mentioned moving a professional snooker table, and this needs to be done with care and attention, to ensure no damage occurs. By documenting your items accordingly, you can ensure no damage happens. The most information you give, the easier it is to identify the type of service for your delivery. You should write down the number of units, as well as their size and their individual weights. Most freight carriers use pallets, boxes, and drums to move items, and the more the company knows about your delivery, the easier they can identify which method to use. You should add in any special information you have regarding your items, such as if the item is fragile, etc. There are also different types of freight company to think about, including LTL (Less Than Load), TL (Truckload Freight), and other quick delivery services. It is possible to deliver via freight across the globe also.
2 | Choose the Best Freight Company
After you have posted your listing your listing will go into the uShip marketplace where different transporters will quote and compete to win your business. Freight companies will quote for your custom and you can ask questions from there. You are able to remain anonymous during the question asking process.
We have a profile section for each of our freight companies on our uShip page. This means you can check out the history of the company, safety details and records, and also testimonials from previous customers. This all helps to build up a clearer picture of the company you're thinking about using. Many companies also show photographs of the equipment they use and previous jobs completed, so you can see what your move might be like. By checking out all of this information, you’ll feel much more confident in your final decision.
