How Can I Reduce Fees On Long Hauls?

Updated

Transportation providers can now make more money on higher-cost, longer-range deliveries. Here are some of the recent changes made to uShip fees. You can always get the most up to date fee info by checking out the uShip TSP Fee Schedule.

Motorcycles

Any shipment in the Motorcycles category incurs a 15% match fee on the first $500 of a shipment — and then a low 1% match fee for any amount over $500.

For example, hauling a pair of ATVs for $1000 would earn you $875 (vs. $800). And hauling a Harley for $750 would earn you $650 (vs. $600).

Household Goods

Likewise, any shipment in the Household Goods category, including furniture, antiques, appliances, sporting equipment, and more, incurs a 14.5% match fee on the first $350 of a shipment, a 10% match fee from $350 to $500, and then a low 1% match fee for any amount over $500.

In practical terms, a $750 cross-country armoire move would pay out $682 (vs. $626), or 10% more. And shipping an antique sofa for $500 would earn you $441 (vs. $418), or 6% more.

While some of the dollar amounts may not seem significant, over the course of a month, it can really add up to impact your bottom line.

Cars & Light Trucks

For a limited time, when you book a vehicle shipment on uShip, incur only 1% booking fee on shipments over $2,000 and just 15% on shipments below $1,500.

As one of the most popular categories on uShip, there’s no shortage of cars and light trucks, including classic and antiques, that need shipping.

Heavy Equipment

Get heavy-duty fee reductions on heavy-duty equipment! For a limited time, all heavy equipment listings on uShip incur lower booking fees: 15% on shipments below $2,000; 10% on shipments $2,000-$3,000; and just 1% on shipments over $3,000.

This fee reduction also applies to Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, which offers both heavy and industrial equipment for transport, many traveling longer distances at a higher shipping rate.

Boats

Nothing can float your boat like fee reductions on watercraft shipments.

For a limited time, all boats listing on uShip incur lower fees: 17.5% on shipments $1500 and below; 10% on shipments $1,500-$2,500; and just 1% on shipments over $2,500.

Go the Distance
On uShip, longer distance shipments typically command higher shipping prices, so the farther you drive, the more you can make. 

With providers tending to drive more regionally during the pandemic, a huge opportunity exists on longer-distance moves in these two categories.
