How Shiply Helps The Environment
By utilising spare capacity of vehicles running on the road, Shiply helps reduce the number of otherwise wasteful journeys needed to transport the item.
Shiply's Furniture Delivery Guide
We have thousands of furniture couriers on our site who compete against each other to win your delivery job.
Shiply achieves prices typically up to 75% off standard rates because the site is used as a way for couriers to find work along their existing routes.
Say for example a courier is already taking several items to Manchester from London in their van, but after completing those deliveries they have to drive all the way back to London again empty of cargo.
In these scenarios, the courier is willing to offer heavily discounted rates to reduce this waste.
It's simple. You just fill out one short form describing what you need to move and wait for the quotes to be emailed to you.
If you have any photos of the furniture, that can be really helpful. Requests with photos tend to get 34% cheaper quotes.
Once you have filled out the form and submitted your delivery request, you can just sit back, relax and let Shiply take care of the hard work for you.
Certainly beats phoning around one company after the next only to get expensive quotes and no idea of quality.
Transport providers will compete and quote on your delivery job in a reverse auction format, which helps drive down the price for you.
We recommend allowing 24 hours to get the very best quotes, but it’s not uncommon to get a great price within minutes.
How do I know who to trust?
In addition to low prices, Shiply operates a feedback system, much like eBay. So after every transaction, customers leave positive, negative or neutral feedback comments.
Transport providers are incentivised to perform a top quality service in order to achieve positive feedback and future work.
This dedication to low prices and top quality service is why over 1.8 million people use Shiply and use it over and over again.
We’re rated 9.3/10 on Trustpilot.
Hundreds of thousands of eBay customers use Shiply on a regular basis. They have found that is a great way to access bargains without constraining themselves only to their local area.
We’ve also built a nifty integration with eBay, which enables you to copy/paste the eBay item number into Shiply and have us import the important details for you like the seller’s postcode, a description of the furniture and photos.
Will I need to be in all day for collection and delivery?Unlike the behemoths of Royal Mail and Yodel etc, Shiply transport providers tend to be smaller family firms who are more agile in this department. They will typically be able to give you a short time window for when you’d need to be in and give you a courtesy call when they are about to arrive.
How heavy can the furniture be?The furniture courier firms on Shiply range in specialisation enormously. There really is nothing they cannot handle (provided it is legal!). Because there are more than 100,000 transport providers on Shiply they have a huge range of vehicle types, from smaller vans right up to HGV’s and flatbed trucks. So no matter what you’re moving, you’ll find someone to move your goods on Shiply.
How should I package up the furniture?Although the majority of transport providers will offer blankets and straps for your furniture, it never hurts to add a bit of extra protection yourself prior to collection. Bubble wrap held into position with heavy duty tape does the job nicely.
What about insurance?It is a requirement of every transport provider on Shiply to have adequate goods in transit insurance for the deliveries they carry out. If you have a particularly valuable item, it is worth double checking with your chosen transport provider directly in case they need to purchase supplemental insurance on your behalf.
Can you send furniture abroad?Yes, many people use Shiply to send furniture overseas. Whether it is sending a wardrobe to their place in the sun or moving home entirely, there are transport providers on Shiply on hand to help. Shiply operates right across Europe and indeed the world.
