UShip / scam

United States Review updated:

U Ship is nothing but a means to hook you up with the sleazy low life shippers.

they take their cut of the deal, and do not look back. I had a terrible experience with them, I e-mailed them several times to intervene in resolving the problem with a sleazy shipping company called Chase Nationwide Transport, operating out of Oregon. This company, I mean Chase will take charge of your shipment and then would not move it until it is paid for in full, They give you different bank accounts and ask you to wire the money with different charges added and keep calling you that the money did not come-in and keep playing this trick in the hope that you wire the money and then you charge the shipping cost to credit card. They play every trick you can think of. in the meantime, U Ship will not interfere and leave you with these sharks. I had to file a law suit against them.

    it's so true with most of the so called transporters on U-ship, sounds like you did more Chasing than chase national transport did for you.
    they have been masking more illegals than Texas and California combined!I can't believe that that law has not put these thieves away and tossed the key away.

    I bet that these 2 people (1 from Australia & the other from Alexandria EGYPT) wish they had done their homework. Just these 2 alone, got taken for in excess of $80, 000 from someone in the U.S.!

    Too all shippers out there, Uship exsitis only because we support the site, My message is simple "Do not support this site" If we shippers don't support them, they have no business "period".

    If a consumer is *** enough to ship a product with U-ship supported by cheap UN-insured, Un-professional carrier's with no recourse then that is there problem.

    When there goods go missing or they have been waiting for 6-12 weeks to get the goods, or they can't get a hold of the shipper, or it gets damaged, "Tough" you get what you pay for, so stop *** and moaning, you took the risk and that's the end result.

    U-ship is a risk to for both consumers and suppliers, the transport industry worldwide has enough parasites to feed within it. So stop feeding this one!

    My trucks don't have Shell, Mobil, Caltex, Exon, or any other oil company emblazoned on it, and I don't ship freight for fuel money. Neither should you!

    I think I speak for all PROFESSIONAL transporters out there. We spend a considerable amount of money each year in insurance, maintenance and road tax to protect "YOU" the end consumer, hence why freight is priced the way it is.

    So please... stick with the professionals, Simply because we do know what were doing out there.

    Next time you should try this fairly new website called instead. They do not charge a commission, which will save both the trucker and the consumer some serious $$$. Plus, they have an open communication platform that allows us to talk to and pre-screen all potential haulers. Avoid getting ripped off and use a different service.

    I have built a site where we can chat with others, create groups, make friends, help those who were scammed and share stories. This is more than a forum. This is a place that we all can have become the largest community online to combat uship's unfair practices.

    Let me tell you as a service provide on uship the company is not a fraud however they would have made a lot more money off of you had this shipment went though. What uship does not tell it's customer or I should say they hide it very carefully is after they charged you $35 for posting on their site, they also turn around and take approximately 13% of the $1600 bid amount you accept from the service provider. That is what they tell you will be a deposit about $208 by my calculation. So in total uship gets $243. The service provider like myself who actually does all the work gets the difference of $1392 that you would give to the driver when the job was complete.

    Uship has also came up with something new to rip off it's service provides. It allows you the customer, I believe they actually propably stare shippers into making a full payment for the shipment directly to them. At which time if you were doing your payment this way. The servise provider/driver would have lost/been ripped of by Ushipfor another 2.25% which Uship calls a transfer fee. Now why should we the service providers, the people who does all the work get screwed again for more money by Uship?

    I don't know what happen to your driver/service provider. Perhaps something happened to him/her and they were unable to respond to you. Either way, as a service provider myself, I really don't like dealing with Uship because they charge/steal too much money out of all our pockets, both shipper and service providers, just for us to use there site. They have no competition so they do what they want. I am working work on my own site that will compete with Uship and charge far less money to the servie providers and perhaps nothing to the shippers. In the meantime I suggest using Craigslist or other web search methods of finding reliable servce providers for your transportation needs.

    Hi, this happened on the long weekend of Aug/2013.I was contacted by a so called breeder of Egytian mau kittens.She claimed she was deaf and had no phone no.She sent me pictures of the kitten I wanted to buy.She told me to pay through Westen Union, which I did because my Visa did not work through Uship.She then told us that she used some of our money to pay Uship to ship our Kitten.The thing is she told us to send the money to a person in Texas, not a company.So then uship emailed us a copy of the shippment (Egytian mau).Apparently shipped kitty from Nevada to holding in Quebec, and that we had to pay a further two thousand dollars pet insurance, to receive the kitten to Victoria, that is when we realized we were scammed, They also said the money was refundable and to wire them the money, we would not believe it or give them more money.I am heart broken, no kitten and my money gone.Mary

    i was scammed out of a TV earlier this year around April 2015. I lost $865. I filed a chargeback to get the commision back from uship but lost my TV. I then proceeded to create an fake shipping/ broker account on uship with all fake entity. Uship does not scan info of their brokers. i was able to bid on $8, 000 cargo OUT THE GATE with all fake info i imputed. if i was a scammer my customers would NEVER have any recourse of their property once i get my hands on it.

    Nowadays, i go on uship to find legible brokers and i contact them and use their service directly and pay them directly and that has worked for me so far

    Uship is the biggest rip-off I have seen in quite some time. They set me up with a shipper who encouraged me to get insurance even though there was a $500 deductible he didn't tell me about. The desk arrived damaged and the shipper told me he would pay up to $250 worth of damage. When nothing happened Uship tried to claim they have no liability. Fortunately, I am an attorney and know they are nothing more than two-bit hustlers, and I plan on filing a class action suit against them. Anyone interested in joining this suit can contact the Bowlin Law Firm, LLC @ [protected] I know we will win the case, and now I just need some clients willing to fight this unscrupulous company.
