Our platform links you with countless seasoned furniture transporters who vie for your business, guaranteeing you receive the most competitive rates for your furniture shipping needs.


Individuals frequently transport furniture to and from Cambridge for numerous reasons, such as moving for employment or studies, scaling down or expanding their living spaces, or simply revitalizing their home decor. Regardless of your motive, Shiply is here to assist you in discovering the ideal furniture delivery solution in Cambridge.


By utilizing Shiply, you can reduce standard furniture shipping costs by up to 75%. How do we accomplish this? Our platform enables furniture transporters to secure additional work along their current routes, reducing empty cargo space and minimizing waste.

Whether you need to transport a single piece of furniture within the UK or multiple items to Europe and beyond, Shiply can help you. Simply complete a brief form outlining your furniture shipping requirements and await the quotes to start pouring in. To ensure you receive the most precise and competitive quotes, we suggest including photos of the furniture you need to move. Requests accompanied by photos typically receive quotes that are 34% more affordable!


Once you've submitted your request, relax while Shiply handles the hard work for you. No more time-consuming phone calls to multiple companies, only to be met with costly quotes and uncertainty about service quality. With Shiply, furniture shipping companies compete for your business through a reverse auction format, driving down prices and ensuring you get the best deal possible.


Assess Furniture Shipping Companies & Make an Informed Choice


We suggest allowing up to 24 hours to receive the most competitive furniture transport quotes, although it's not unusual to get a great price within minutes. Shiply collaborates with both national and international furniture shipping providers, ensuring that your needs are met regardless of the scale of your move.


In addition to offering competitive prices, Shiply operates a feedback system similar to eBay. After each transaction, customers leave positive, negative, or neutral feedback comments, motivating transport providers to maintain a high standard of service. This emphasis on affordability & quality has made Shiply the go-to platform for millions of satisfied customers, earning us an impressive 9.0/10 rating on Trustpilot.


When evaluating furniture transporter quotes, take the time to assess each provider's feedback score and comments left by previous customers. Feel free to inquire about their availability and experience with similar furniture shipments. Once you've found a transport provider that meets your needs and budget, simply click "accept quote" to book their services.


Readying Your Furniture for Shipping & Ensuring a Seamless Delivery


After booking your furniture collection and delivery service, the transporter will contact you to confirm the expected collection time. To ensure a smooth process, we recommend the following steps:



  1. Confirm Packaging/Protection: Check if your transport provider will supply protective materials like blankets or bubble wrap. If not, take the time to package and protect your furniture yourself before collection.

  2. Verify Insurance: Your furniture transporter will have goods in transit insurance, but it's also worth checking your home insurance policy, as many cover furniture during shipping.

  3. Record Evidence: Take photos of your furniture before collection to serve as evidence in the unlikely event of damage during transport.


Unlike larger companies like Royal Mail or Yodel, Shiply's furniture shipping services are typically provided by smaller, family-owned firms that offer greater flexibility. They'll usually provide a short time window for collection and delivery, along with a courtesy call upon arrival, so you won't need to wait around all day.


With over 100,000 transport providers on Shiply, you'll find a wide range of vehicle types to suit your needs, from small vans to HGVs and flatbed trucks. No matter what you're moving, there's a Shiply transport provider ready to help.


Once your furniture delivery is complete, take a moment to inspect the condition of your items before signing off. In the rare case of damage, address the issue with your shipping company immediately. Remember, your feedback is crucial to the Shiply community, so please take a moment to share your experience, whether positive or in need of improvement.

Does Shiply Provide Packing Materials?

Couriers on Shiply are able to provide all levels of service and can help pack your items, just ensure you inform them of your needs.

Will My Goods Be Tied Up Securely?

Transport providers will almost always tie up an item in the transport vehicle, as the risk of damage from moving around during transit is high. You should always confirm safety precautions and packing needs with transport providers before accepting a quote.

Can Items Be Taken Upstairs?

Yes, items can be taken upstairs if needed, and can also be assembled. Transport providers on Shiply are happy to provide these services, but you should ensure that you are mentioning these requirements in your listings as it may mean a second person is required for the move.

Can I Travel With My Goods?

What If I Need To Cancel My Booking?

Can I Change The Address Of The Delivery?

If you have not yet accepted a quote then you are able to change the address of your listing. Note that editing details of your listing after publishing will result in active quotes being voided, so you will have to wait for new quotes to come in. If you have already accepted a quote and need to change the address, please let your transport provider know and contact us at .

Do I Need To Dissasemble My Furniture?

Disassembling furniture can often help with reducing the size of the items that need to be moved, as well as reducing the risk of damage to the piece of furniture. However, there will be transport providers available to move any size of furniture, so don't worry if disassembly is not possible.
