Take a look here at the response @ A&E “Shipping Wars”

“Shipping Wars” TV show from A&E promotes scam site uShip.com

Shipping Wars Complaint by Stevieb@gmail.com

A&E (for the sake of ratings and profit only) promotes the scam site uShip.com on their new show “Shipping Wars”. Allowing this scam ship to be promoted on TV will perpetuate the scams and leave even more people with stolen product or money. uShip claims to be neutral but that is a joke.

uShip allows felons, tax evaders pedophiles and many other seedy transporters to bid on shipping. This goes against the DOT since they do not allow transports to be criminals but uship welcomes them with open arms since they get paid from the shipper.

BOYCOTT A&E SINCE THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT AMERICAS BEING SAFE AND PROMOTE USHIP.COM

GOOGLE SEARCH “USHIP ILLEGAL” OR “USHIP SCAMS” OR “USHIP FRAUD”

The original complaint stated that “criminals’ cannot,by DOT regulations (nothing about the uShip terms of service, be used in transporting. I did not say anything in support of criminals, or the company uship. All I asked was where in the DOT regulations it says criminal cannot be transporters.

IAM SORRY I CANT HAUL ANYTHING LISTED ON U SHIP. I CARRY A LOT OF INSURANCE HAVE ALL LATE MODEL TRUCKS,ALL DRIVERS HAVE MEDICAL CARDS CLASS A LIC. DRUG TESTED AT RANDOM. MY TRUCKS GET INSPECTED BY THE DOT AT LEAST TWICE A MONTH. I RUN 2 TRUCK AND 1 EMPLOYEE. THIS COST MONEY. THERES ALWAYS SOMEONE WITH A PICKUP AND A SNOWMOBILE TRAILER THATS CHEAPER.

None of the people that made deliveries for me on UShip were criminals, I suspect that those lobbing complaints have no direct experience. I’ve used UShip 4 times now, and every person who showed up at my door was properly insured and had me fill out a form that they use for tax purposes. Did that actually file the forms? I can’t say, but from what I’ve seen so far it’s legit.

4. Written by jesusislordmaranathaon December 16, 2011

as like anything else, yes they may be some outlaws that are transporters but they are more honest working individuals out there who are trying to make a living for their families, quit your complaining, get off the couch, and cancel your foodstamps and get a job.

5. Written by Agreedon December 8, 2011

I heard rumors that they are being investigated by Dateline NBC as well as the IRS for allowing tax evasion. I would think the tax evasion would stick since they allow those who have no DOT authority to ship and those illegals cannot claim that on their taxes or they would get caught!

I haven’t seen any court documents that back up your accusations but I’m sure a fine upstanding citizen such as you wouldn’t find someone guilty without a fair trial. So, if not for yourself, get a conviction against this outfit for those of us who still retain the capacity for human thought.

I’m sure they did not mean to offend you or your type of criminals!You aren’t a pedophile are you? Felons, pedophiles and those types of criminals are by uShip’s terms of service are not allowed on their site but they let them stay even after they are made aware of them. uShip is a scam

Where, exactly, in DOT regulations does it say “criminals”(pretty general term BTW) cannot be transporters?

A&E presents the new original real-life series “Shipping Wars, ” which follows six independent shippers who have discovered that fortunes could be made transporting items that traditional carriers won’t touch. The 10-episode half-hour series begins with back-to-back episodes Tuesday, January 10 at 9PM and 9:30PM ET/PT.

Each episode of “Shipping Wars” dives into the cutthroat world of these heavy-duty movers as they battle for the chance to transport the unshippable. The competition begins with uShip, the world’s largest online (Scam Site) house for independent truckers. Every day, thousands of shipments are put up for auction. The battle is fierce as the movers have only minutes to bid, and the lowest bidder gets the load.

…. A&E need’s to know about USHIP and their lies.

    My complaint it that the show is a fake reality show. You just had a guy on there that supposedly didn’t know his ex was shipping a hot tub to him and the guy was wearing a mic. It’s on because my brother watches is but the sho is fake as hell!

    Wow, I know a few as you call criminals can not drive trucks, not sure where you get that info. from except your completely against them. These people I know drive trucks and some have cheaper ins. then those who are not felons. Some people have a reguirement within their buisness that they need to be out for like 5-10yrs before getting hired. If you can drive and pass the test then you get to regardless. Should not judge, not your place everyone makes mistakes some learn from it and some don’t get caught. Because one has that mark does not say they are more guilty but the people do, I have never been in trouble but i’m not judging either. If you can pass medical for driving also then you get to drive and able to be insured. thank you

      I have nothing against reformed criminals. I do have an issue with uship profiteering from illegal transporters and putting fellow Americans in danger on the road and the scams. they could do so much more but refuse to protect you and I. Bottom line, fuck them since they fuck everyone else.

    The moving as with many industries, is fairly whore-ish. You have to do due diligence and check things out. bargains are often false. one experience I hired a very famous expensive line, and once I hired a few dudes with a truck. What I paid for the experience of the pros was soo worth it, on time, no damage no bs no nickel and dime…. and teh sites often fall under ‘safeharbor; protection since they dont actuallly do the move or transaction (like ebay)

    All you bitching about uship don’t no ship. I e been using them for 3 months to help.pay bills and keep food on our table each day at least since we can’t keep it in the fridge. Can’t afford to fill it. But anyhow I’m fully.insured and carry cargo.insurance and am legal haul for hire with only an f license. Granted 90 percent of work has to be within a 500 mile radius but if our system is willing to waste money trying to see if everyone is doing that then our society is financially and worldly doomed. Already have to work the rest of my life till.I drop because of a job lost because a company closed and left me.with crap. SHIT ie what I want to say but I’m sure the censors will edit that soon and if not I will be surprised. My insurance costs me 6k a year, my truck.just broke down costing me 3 grand and a holes like you make it hard to do it legally in the first place because you want everything dirt cheap. So go ahead and complain about the few and far between, because all your doing is making it worse for the legit honest guys like me. Jerk me offs

      I agree, if you have your own truck and paying ins. is not cheap its the most expensive ins. out there and getting loads checked get random checked by DOT. It cost a lot to keep them running good, tires, gas, and whatever else. Your medical has to be up to date. I was thinking about doing this myself but without class A for me, boyfriend has those.

    The bigger issue is the TAX!! Want USHIP to stop???, get the IRS involved!!! USHIP takes commissions from EVERY job. Doubt very much the income is reported to the IRS. Then they FORCE the carriers to use PAYPAL, which again is a loop around for big businesses not to pay taxes. The carriers cant even collect “green-cash” anymore to potentially “hide” it from the IRS. With being forced to use Paypal, they generate a paper trail away from themselves, and right to the carrier. Carriers are actually suppose to submit a 1099 to Uship for the commissions, but good luck finding the Federal ID number. Then there is the issue of Workman’s comp…. Who coves who???

      paypal as of this year is sending out a 1099-K form :”n a nutshell, the 1099-K from PayPal and other merchant processors, more commonly known as payment processors, will report to the IRS (and to you) how much money you made in 2011. But what the IRS won’t automatically know is how much you spent to keep your business running. This is why it is now more vital than ever for sellers to record every single business expense, from shipping to COGS (Cost of Goods Sold) to PayPal and Etsy fees, in order to minimize your taxes. After all, you only pay taxes on your profits (revenues minus expenses), not your revenues only.”

  • Canadian shipper

    Your claims of no dot and no mc # then they are not legit is actually a false statement and end up getting you in blue and slander law suits. The facts are that of the 50 states only 25 require DOT registration and only 25 require MC registration, this only applies to the USA Canada is exempt of MC. # as they use a NSC code which is auto magic if they have aliscence plate on the commercial vehicle, only the province of Quebec and Ontario require further codes that relate to their provinces, the key for us hip is they must identify what territories a carrier is operating in as A Canadian only carrier is not required to have MC# to operate unless they travel into any states or provinces that require it. So please correct yourself in what you quote and post, as you could inadvertently cost some carrier bonifide legit buisness. I have told Uship on many occasions to identify on their site by way of a simple toggle and address verification check with Canada post or us postal weather or not a carrier is based in Canada or USA . Such a simple fix. FYI in Canada NSC codes need not be posted as they are the SIN of the transporter and the government for saftey reviews for equipment. Check your facts

      This is US Shipping, not Canada. uShip would never verify a transporter. They would have nobody on their site site he has scared away all the legal transporters and they operate primarily on illegal transporters. They only way this will change is being put in the klink

    The show is at times funny, sad and interesting, but it is at all times very inaccurate as to how the process really works and to the real economics of a deal. What is left out of the numbers is that uShip charges a high commission percentage ( and other hidden fees ) to the truckers and that they do not allow the truckers and the shippers to interact directly….that is why you see errors and mistakes when a trucker gets to the pick up and is surprised as to what the shipment they quoted on really entails. ShipAlmostAnything.com not only promotes direct communication between the shipper and the trucker, it is demanded because the transaction is totally in the hands of the parties involved. There can be many errors on uShip because they have to protect their commission so they do not allow direct contact between the parties. ShipAlmostAnything.com does not charge any commissions so they have nothing to protect and this is good for all involved. Everyone should start posting their auto transport and large item shipments on both websites and see how much better and cheaper it can be on ShipAlmostAnything.com. Try both websites and good luck…
