uShip is one of the biggest and most reliable transportation marketplaces for freight, household goods and vehicle shipping markets. It's basically a melting pot where both consumers and businesses can compare upfront quotes, name their own price or receive bids (like an auction) from a pool of over 300,000 service providers in the transportation and moving industry. uShip is open to everyone- from independent owner-operators to large, freight carriers and brokers as well.
CALCULATE MY MOVE
For example, when small-time carriers (truck owners and operators) want to fill out the space in their trucks, they can contact uShip and find clients to fill it up. They can contact uShip directly, or use their mobile app. This service of course won't be free for the trucker and will cost him a certain charge.
According to uShip.com, their operations have amounted to:
To make it easier to understand, we're going to break down the process for customers who just need to avail of services from uShip. For example, let's say that you have a beautiful dresser that you want to be delivered to your parents' home in Texas. Let's pretend that you're too busy at work and don't have enough time to do the delivery yourself.
In a nutshell, if you need something delivered, uShip can help you find the people to do it.
uShip's bidding process can save you up to 50% in costs because the truckers are competing with one another the competitive process will play to your advantage here. This is because the truckers may just be filling out empty spaces in their truck. That's why they're willing to give better rates.
Another good thing about uShip is that they only give your contact details to the service provider you've chosen. This prevents unwanted phone calls and sales pitches from agents.
uShip is highly recommended for people with special, one-time shipping needs. Because uShip caters to a diverse pool of service providers, you can easily find someone to ship your item regardless if it's just one or a couple of pieces.
You can post a listing on uShip if you need to transport your motorcycle, send furniture, or deliver a crate full of toys. It's a great option for shipping singular, bulky items.
However, if you're planning to relocate your entire household, this may not be best option for you.
We highly recommend that for a complete household relocation, the more practical option is to hire full-service movers instead because that way, your shipment will not be combined with other things inside their trucks, and get the right amount of attention and space from the movers.
