FAQ

Do I have to choose a quote?

No, all quotes you receive are with no obligation, you do not have to accept any. But you will probably want to!

Nice idea, but does this really work?

It is a condition of your membership at Shiply that you operate legally and that includes carrying adequate levels of insurance for goods in transit and public liability.

How many quotes can I expect to get?

98% of requests receive at least 3 quotes. We have over 50,000 transport providers on Shiply, working hard to give you a great price.

How do I know the transport provider is trustworthy?

Shiply operates a feedback-rating system much like eBay, so after every transaction users leave either positive, neutral or negative ratings. Also, every transport provider on Shiply is sent an activation letter in the post, so their physical location has been verified before they can quote.

Are you going to bug me with sales phone calls?

No, all quotes come to you via email, so you can review them when it's convenient to you. You will receive no telephone communication unless you actually choose a quote / book a service. In fact we won't even ask you for your name or phone number on this form.

What about insurance?

You should check the stipulated levels of coverage provided by transport providers by looking at their profile page before accepting a quote.

How long does the process take?

Quotes are entered manually by transport providers. So, in order to receive all of the best quotes we recommend allowing 1-2 days for them to come in. However, it is really not uncommon to get a great deal within 20 minutes.
