Shiply's Large Item Delivery Guide

From appliances to pianos, Shiply can help you find a reliable specialist for your bulky or large item delivery, at a cost of up to 75% lower than standard delivery rates.

Shiply has thousands of registered transport companies waiting to send you free quotes.
To make a delivery request, you’ll just need to answer a few basic questions including collection and drop off locations, a brief description of the large goods and any extra information you’d like to provide.

Some large items will require a courier with specialist equipment, such as pianos and vehicles. If you will be needing a specialist service, please give as many details as you can so our expert transport providers know which equipment to bring and how to quote accurately for the work.

If your delivery requires any additional services, we encourage you to add this information to your request. You might require furniture assembly on arrival, or need assistance disconnecting or reconnecting appliances.

Other services on offer from transport providers may include a packing service or an extra person to help with lifting particularly heavy loads.

Need a courier for your eBay item?

Shiply is an official eBay-compatible application, which makes it even easier to request quotes. If your large item is listed on eBay, you can simply copy/paste the eBay URL onto the Shiply quote request which will automatically populate the form with relevant item details and photos.

Choose your favourite quote

Once you have received several quotes, take a look at the profile page of each delivery company to help decide between them. Here their credentials will be listed including insurance cover, whether they are a member of a professional association or regulatory body and their feedback from other Shiply users.

Once you have decided which company to use, accept the quote on Shiply and just sit back and wait for your delivery date to arrive.
