uShip works as a marketplace for shippers (people requiring shipment) and shipping service providers. In case you ever need to ship some oversized goods (i.e Piano, Motorcycle, etc) or something that won’t be accepted by standard package carriers than uShip is the place to go. In their own words: “The first and largest auction-style marketplace for shipping and transportation services on the planet.”

uShip : Marketplace for Shipping Services


  • Sign-up and post shipping requests: list items as an auction or ‘max. price’ style.
  • View feedback score for each bidding shipping provider.
  • Use ‘Shipping Price Estimator’ to estimate shipping costs.
  • Rate service providers.

Shipping Service Provider

  • Bid on the marketplace listings for free.
  • Browse marketplace listings: by category (vehicles, boats, pianos, etc.), by number of bids, by shipping distance, by date, by shipping type (local, intrastate, international, etc.)
  • List your business in the uShip Directory (Free)

    I have to agree on this one - uShip totally sucks. DO NOT USE THEM if you care about your stuff. The money you might save is NOT worth it. They are crooks and they're stupid.

    I am suprised that the I.R.S. has not investigated uship for for all the illegal activity from unlicensed haulers that only take cash as they surely are not claiming this as income or getting 1099's for their performed services.the danger that Uship puts the public in will put them out of business as they will let a illegal hauler use the site to ultimately book a load and when the driver kills someone by not getting the required rest the lawyers will follow the money trail!

    I agree with everyone who says uship sucks.. I myself have had some bad experience with them. I recently found this new site while looking to ship my most recent purchase and found that they only accept providers who are LEGAL and it also saved me tons and the best part is they don't charge a fee to post your item. I used it and had great luck with it and will use it from now on. It was
    try it out maybe they will over take uship!!

    I agree with alot of what people are saying about Uship but there a few of us transporters that are busting our a$$ and trying to use this site to help fill our loads in this downward economy. The only way Uship can be truly be successful is to verify all transporters have the proper DOT/MC authority before they are allowed onto the site, but even that won't stop people from scamming but it would be a good start.

    What has been failed to be mentioned is that allows ANYONE (Legal or illegal) to create an account on their site. There are many instances that have been posted on the uship "ASK MICKEY" forum that were deleted that people are trying to get money back from carriers that stole their money and others who have had items stolen (Boats, motorcycles, personal items).

    Uship allows illegals and felons to stay on their site even AFTER they were warned aobut the scammers. Uship collects money from the person who posts the shipment. They call it a deposit buit it is a lie, it is the uship fee that if you mention on their site you can get banned.

    Uship has many on there that will bait and switch once shipments are picked up, others who will tell you to pay a deposit, take the money and open a new profile and do it over and over and over..... Nice site if you want to be taken advantage of. Uship doesn't even verify the "carriers" are legal

    We are an office that works with TransGroup and I got kicked off because I was beating all the bids on ushit. It seems posted some truths about and they are upset.

    Too bad, the truth hurts and I hope seeming the scams and thefts that happen non-stop on uship, I hope the DOT shuts them down soon, I know of one death caused by an illegal uship carrier, how many are needed before there is action?

    Uship is only secure if you do your homework. Check out every carrier before accepting a bid, we allow anyone to create an account. Actually that is not true. If you a legal one, we'll end up banning you for some childish reason like you keep telling us that we continually break the law.

    If you have a problem, call us. Oops, wait we do not publish our number. Anyway, drop us an email, I'll answer right away.

    Oops again, in the ask Mickey forum there are well over 1000 posts but I have only answered about 250-260 of them

    Guess what, you're screwed. Place youre shipment on uship anyway, we'll make money even if you get scammed!

    Probably nobody mentioned it because you go around and put this same thing on every blog post about u-ship i've seen today. What is your website?

    lol.. That's like saying eBay or Craigslist is nothing but a portal for scammers and thieves. Guess what! Fraud happens in every open marketplace! people need to stop being idiots and start taking some personal responsibility instead of expecting someone to hold their hand.

    Why doesn’t anyone mention that they allow illegal carriers to scam not only money from psople but they have many carriers that have stolen household goods, motorcycles, etc???

    They are nothing but a portal for scammers and thieves. If you want to take the gamble that your items will get stolen or maybe just your money. use uship or should I say uScam. Last month there has been over $20,000 in scams on that poor site.

    If you read through their forums you will also see that they are known to remove posts too. That way when people such as yourself search, you will not find out about issues like this.

    If you do a search on uship for “remove post” you will see that it happens alot and they hide as much of the illegal activity they can.

    It is not a peer to peer network nor are they a neutral venue, they are harboring illegal activity and hiding it by censoring their forums.;SortBy=1&SortOrder=1

    I stand by that they are not underrated but overrated. Thank you for having this site so people can read about this ongoing issue.

    Look at this carrier if you want to see a scam that went on after they were warned:
