Uship.com ?

Post by wbaker01 on Sat Oct 01, 2016 9:47 pm

Wasn't real sure where to post this so if it is in the wrong spot, feel free to move or delete..

I have some larger parts to ship, if and when they sell (hood, core support, plastic inner fenders) and don't have the means nor the desire to drive them to a Fastenal store, Greyhound terminal, etc. I've looked at uship.com a few times and wondered if anyone has used this service and how it has been?

Thanks,
Bill

I used it when I had my 84 GT350 and my 75 Firebird shipped to me. Worked great both times for me.

I use it all the time for engines. Make sure you ship it to and from a business with a loading dock or forklift. If they have to drop that lift gate, it's $80. I would get engines on a pallet shipped across the country for right around $200 business to business.

Thanks for the advice all..I'm not shipping anything that heavy, just a bit bulky..Assuming the guys that actually transport the parts are just looking for enough items to put together a run somewhere?

Not usually. The quotes you get with the "get a free quote" button are typically larger carriers. R&L, UPS, FedEx. It's only when you have an obscure item that requires special attention that an enroute carrier would bid. When shipping pallets, the big guys make it easy and cheap.
