These days, the internet is unequivocally the best resource for buying and comparing prices on just about anything. Even in traditional and highly-specialized markets like heavy equipment, the internet continues to shake things up.
At one time, sales and auctions of heavy industrial equipment were only completed in person or through close intermediaries. Buying and moving the big, expensive machines that keep the world running was a traditional and tedious process. We’re talking about tractors, trailers, combines, bulldozers, cranes… huge items that are meant to last for a long time.
But things have changed. Now, classifieds sites like MachineryTrader.com, TractorHouse.com and TruckPaper.com allow industry pros to find new and used equipment all across the country. As the buying market has gone more national and international, sites like these are integrating uShip so their buyers can receive instant shipping estimates. In partnership with uShip, these sites simplify the transport process by allowing buyers to quickly and easily list the equipment that needs to be shipped so carriers can bid to win the job.
Customers from our heavy equipment partner sites have great things to say about us:
TimBurkum, shipping an International Tractor:
“uShip guided us throughout the process with instructions on their Web site… which made the process that much easier. We had confidence in uShip throughout the entire shipment. Thank you uShip for an excellent first-time shipping experience.”
AvidFarmer, shipping a John Deere Combine:
“The cost to use uShip was minimal as were my inputs (time is valuable). I would use uShip again.”
Sknapik5, shipping a Kubota RTV and a CAT Skid Steer Loader:
“uShip simplified the process in an expedited manner, allowing me to not only get bids, but to evaluate the bidders’ services… This simplied making an informed choice. As a result… a seemingly difficult decision process was simplified.”
LLReed, shipping a Kubota Tractor:
“Saved me a lot of time trying to find a trucker. Asked for bids on Sunday evening and had acceptable bid on Monday
