uShip Teams Up with Penske to Help DIY Movers With Specialized Shipments


One of transporters biggest complaints about shippers is their inability to estimate how much stuff they really have.

Providers often show up at locations and realize the extent – and perhaps more importantly, the difficulty – required to move said items was way underestimated in the listing.

This even applies to those doing DIY moves. Rent the truck. Load the stuff. And oops, forgot to figure out how to move the 4-wheeler. Or boat. Or Baby Grand Piano. The list goes on.

That’s where uShip can help Penske DIY truck rental customers who just didn’t plan ahead. For any items weighing 150+ lbs. or items unusual in size or shape, doing it yourself becomes unrealistic and risky.

As a Penske partner, uShip offers an easy, affordable solution to moving these unwieldy items by connecting movers with a network of over 300,000 customer-rated, expert carriers and brokers. WIth uShip, customers can receive free quotes, review customer feedback, and securely book a service provider – all online. This online solution allows movers to eliminate the inefficient process of phoning, faxing or emailing with multiple sites or brokers to compare rates, service types and time frames, ultimately saving them time, money and hassle.
