Delivery to Italy on Shiply translates to cheap quotes. All day every day there will be couriers to Italy completing shipments for their customers. It is rare that any transport vehicle will be fully loaded.

As a result, they can offer a quote much lower than a standard rate. In fact you can save up to 75% on transport to Italy.
It’s for the same reason that Shiply is a great green transport solution. Instead of organising an entirely new vehicle, a Shiply delivery will use a transporter going there anyway.

Hiring a Courier
If you’re going to be sending valuables across Europe then you want to know that you’re getting the best care for them. Hiring a courier to Italy should be an easy, pain free process – but it can be made unnecessarily difficult because of the wide choice of European delivery services out there. Do you go with an independent driver, a well know chain or do you plump for containerised shipping. It really depends on what you’re sending.
Depending on what you’re sending to Italy you might need different levels or courier expertise. If you’re sending paintings to Parma or need to deliver fineries to Florence then you will want to employ the services of a courier well versed in transporting fragile goods. Or if you need to transport a car across Europe then you will need an expert vehicle transporter.
If you’re only sending basic items to Italy, such as furniture or crates and boxes then a more affordable basic courier services could be all you require. Finding a courier that is already going to Italy and has spare space could mean you save on your delivery costs.
What to Look for in a Courier to Italy
Transporters to Italy should conform to the following standards before you consider them for completing your delivery job.
Insurance: This is the most important thing to check out when looking for a European courier. Not only does it protect the contents of the delivery, it gives you some indication that you’re dealing with a creditable outfit.
Accreditation: When looking to hire a delivery driver to Italy it can help to find one that is a registered member of a recognised delivery association. These organised bodies set strict standards for delivery and courier services across Europe.
Feedback: One of the best ways to judge a delivery driver is by examining reviews of their service from customers they’ve served before.
Other Delivery Considerations
An Italian courier is going to cost a lot more than a simple move up the road, the average rate per mile for a courier is around £1.20 per mile, so from delivery London to Rome by road (and ferry) could cost you in excess of £1,000! But luckily Shiply can help you find cheaper courier quotes to Italy.
