UShip brokers haulers that violate federal transportation Laws

Uship is brokering haulers that are required to have MC/DOT numbers for interstate hauling. When Uship is told about a hauler that is violating federal law their response is "well it's not against Uship policy and we have been the business for 10 years and we should know if it's against Federal law, so go check your facts" Fact is if you are a commercial hauler, haul for monetary gain, and cross state lines you are required to be registered with the DOT, no matter what you are hauling.

So if you are thinking of using a hauler on UShip, think again, use professional licensed haulers and save yourself grief. Using a hauler that is not registered through the DOT for interstate hauling could lead to you goods being impounded. Oh, you will get them back but not until you jump through hoops, pay impound fees, etc.

And if your goods are damaged, like mine was, see pic, good luck in getting reimbursed, my hauler is just flat out refusing to repair the damage he caused. And you have no where to go.

Don't get scammed by this farce. For any Equipment, Machinery, heavy duty trucks, whether you buy, sell, move, purchase or sell at auction,'s only legal to transport for hire if the carrier is authorized by the FMCSA, Federally licensed and insured to do so.
If you are in need of heavy duty transport services requiring a lowbed or detachable gooseneck or rollback truck and are looking for a quote, CALL or email Iron Mountain Iron & Equipment, llc ( ) and speak with me, the owner of the business and have been in this for over 36 years.

I agree that uship should get rid of all of the illegal transporters on there website. In my opinion if you don't see a MC or DOT number on the shippers profile don't use them. Legal shippers rates are higher, but they are so they can stay legal and pay for there numbers and insurance.

You are correct that transporters have to have DOT/MS. On Uship you can click on the transporters profile and it will show their DOT# and then click on it and it will take to the USDOT to verified that are valid. There are a lot that don't and you must have gotten one.
