uShip is a haven for criminals. They do absolutely nothing to screen any of the transporters they allow on their site. They allowed Gary Koppelman, who was wanted for federal wire fraud charges, on the site with three different shipping companies, in IMMEDIATE SUCCESSION.

Every time one of his victims found out what was up and contacted uShip with the information, the only action they took was to kick him off, and then let him right back on the site again. They do NOTHING to help any of the thousands of people who have been frauded or had their belongings stolen, and they deliberately keep the customers using the same illegal transporter from communicating with each other in order to pool information and try to mount a collective effort to recover their belongings.

uShip is shady, dishonest, negligent, and barely legal. They claim not to be a broker, they don't have proper licenses to act as a broker, and yet they keep a finder's fee in the form of a "deposit" on every job booked through the site. THIS IS NOT LEGAL!!!! A class action could take this site down. It needs to be investigated by the government, so that countless consumers can be saved, and legitimate truckers and transporters can get more business and so the illegals don't give the trucking industry a bad name.

uShip is THE WORST. THEY NEED TO BE STOPPED. They lie and are erase any negative posts or communications on their site. They are propaganda oriented-- erasing truthful posts from victims of illegal trucking is obstructing justice-- beware of uShip it is false advertising and they create a false sense of security for customers. Everyone who has used them and had a bad experience should report them to the Internet Crime Reporting Website: http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx.

Let's put them out of business before anyone else gets hurt!

uShip representative here. I wanted to clear up some confusion on this post.

uShip is NOT the following: transportation company, freight forwarder, or broker. Instead, uShip is a neutral venue that allows shipping customers to create listings of the items in need of delivery. In turn, actual transportation companies can then place bids, or in other words quotes, of what it will cost to deliver those shipments. To clarify, uShip does not employ carriers nor endorses or selects Service Providers for a customer's shipment.

We are simply an online platform for shipping customers to connect with Service Providers, and it is up to each party to evaluate profiles, communication on the site, etc. before booking a shipment with the people they chose.

If a transportation company registers an account,then they choose to abide by the terms and conditions stated in the User Agreement. This includes that they are only able to bid on items they are legally able to haul.

Thus, uShip does not screen any Service Providers, as clearly stated in our User Agreement.

Please review our User Agreement, specifically section 1.

However, we encourage our users to use the resources and tips in our Safe Shipping Guide available for free on the site. This guide is meant to educate users on how to verify credentials so they can make better, more informed decisions about their shipments.

Uship helped Loveland Auto Transport/Loveland Auto Invstments/Berthoud Fair Deal Auto/ Fair Deal Auto, et al, scam me. The negative posts aren't from the same person.

Someone accepted a bid, picked up my car, never delivered it, and then extorted cash money from me to get it back. Fair Deal Auto is well known to the Larimer County Sheriff's department for having multiple complaints at their address at 1015 S. Lincoln and the company has multiple complaints with various state agencies and the BBB gives them an F rating. That's the kind of scammers that operate on the site.

They've scammed customers for years, and Uship just keeps collecting the fees.

There is no way to post negative feedback on the Uship web site. The sheriff, courts and various state agencies are now getting involved in investigating the company that scammed me on Uship.

The dirt that Uship doesn't want you to see

Information you won't find any other way!

For a good sampling of what you may experience when using one of the 1000’s of illegally operating Carriers on Uship, just GOOGLE the entire phrase below. Click on the results and read through the feedback of the 100’s if not 1000’s of incidents of stolen money, property, property damages, extortion and abandoned property.

These profiles were suspended, but the damage was already done. The suspensions are done to keep this information from damaging the site‘s reputation and not let the truth trump the propaganda that the site publishes all over the net.

When deciding whether or not to use UShip and take a big risk by choosing from 1000's of illegals to transport your property, do what I did and go visit

www.StopIllegalTrucking.Com

Those guys helped me by answering all my questions and checking out all my bidders for FREE. It was quick too.

TO: Stop Whining

You are obviously a member of UShip. For you've done nothing but defend the site and slamdunk the victim.

You and your site are designed in such a way as to keep the Shippers ignorant of what and how they should be checking out on possible carriers. What's available is very hard to find.

You delete all negative information from your site minus the feedback. You do leave feedack alone.

You censor all correspondence and have an enormous amout of micromanagement rules governing it.

Additionally you DO NOT allow the Shippers an opportunity to post negative stories. Only the positive ones get posted.

You call yourself a neutral venue but you are far from neutral in any capacity EXCEPT when things go wrong. You then aggressively take that position.

If it weren't for all the BS and illegal activity on your site, you would have been history a long time ago.

I researched this case and Koppelman did not steal anyone's property. He was however guilty of being late with his deliveries.

He also had a driver on working on one of his trucks that was involved in a hit and run accident. That truck was impounded by police and held for almost 8 weeks. That is the root cause of most of these issues.

His Federal issues had nothing to do with these allegations. When he was arrested by the FEDS his trucks were then abandoned by his drivers who could not reach him for their pay or fuel being that he was in custody.

They (Uship) are NOT illegal brokers. They can take a fee for use of the load board which can be considered a self dispatch board.

Learn the business before spouting out legal threats you can not afford to make. If you are so sure in your legal stand, start a class action suit. You can't find a lawyer that will take a case like that. A broker sets up the contract with the clients and seperately hires the transporter.

Uship never enters into a contract with any client for any move or shipment. Uship allows access to post your shipment and YOU decide and arrange the shipping with your CHOSEN provider. The site educates the shipper on selecting a carrier so it can not be held liable if you did not do so. You also agreed to use the site responsibly and take the time to verify bidders.

You chose poorly and now want to blame Uship. It is not their fault you were negligent and it is not their fault certain providers have poor business plans and need to get paid more than customers want to pay.

It is a reverse auction site and everyone knows that going in. The only real crime is whiny people like you blaming others for your mistakes.
