Just a note to say I have had very good experiences with Uship when FedEx and ups cant work. Will do large items and pumps

Good to know.

North American Van Lines does a real good job too. They have a specialized division for unique items, such as game room stuff / gas pumps, arcade machines, pinball machines, etc.

I've done well with freightquote.com too, they are like uship, a broker that quotes multiple shipping companies. Its the ship company itself that will go bad on you potentially, not so much the broker. Its nice to have the broker to put leverage on the shipper when things go south.

Agree,but Greyhound even beat U-ship in price.
My customer was near a Greyhound Depot,so it worked out very well.
Less then $30 to ship in the belly of a Bus,compared to U-ship wanting almost $300.

Nope,wrapped up with padding & put inside a Refrigerator box,then taped up tight.
I had to drop it off @ the Bus Depot,and he picked it up @ his Depot.
Wrote his name & phone # in huge letters on the box too.
They called him when it arrived.
