uShip’s shipping price estimator is integrated into the new MachineFinder.com site, making it easy for customers to get an idea of how much it will cost to ship equipment they are considering for purchase. Once a purchase is made, customers can easily list the item for transport on uShip and quickly receive competing bids from specialized heavy haul transporters.
The MachineFinder.com site makes it easier than ever for John Deere customers to find and view pre-owned John Deere agricultural, construction, forestry, commercial and residential equipment from the company’s network of authorized dealers.
“Our affiliation with MachineFinder.com allows us to provide affordable equipment transport solutions for John Deere buyers and represents a great opportunity for the thousands of heavy haul transporters that are members of our site,” said Matt Chasen, president of uShip.com.
Founded in 2003, uShip.com is the first and largest online marketplace for shipping services. Members list anything they need shipped, from household goods to vehicles to freight, and receive instant quotes or bids from thousands of feedback-rated service providers, including movers, carriers, transporters, van lines, freight brokers and independent service providers. On any given day, there are thousands of shipments listed on uShip.com representing millions of dollars of business. It’s totally free for members to list shipments and for service providers to place bids. uShip.com’s reverse-auction format and patent-pending search technology dramatically reduce shipping costs by allowing service providers to find shipments along their routes and fill empty cargo space. uShip.com’s feedback system holds service providers accountable for their service and rewards those that perform well.
