Assess the Furniture Shipping Firms


We recommend allowing 24 hours to obtain the most competitive furniture transport estimates, although it's not uncommon to receive an excellent rate within minutes. Most shipping providers offer nationwide furniture delivery services, while some operate internationally.


In addition to competitive rates, Shiply employs a feedback system akin to eBay. After each transaction, customers leave positive, negative, or neutral feedback remarks. Shipping providers on Shiply are motivated to deliver exceptional service to earn positive feedback & secure future work. This focus on affordability & quality service has led millions of people to use Shiply repeatedly, resulting in a 9.0/10 rating on Trustpilot.


When you receive multiple furniture transporter estimates, evaluate each one carefully. Pay attention to the shipping provider's feedback score & remarks from previous customers. Interact with the transporter by asking questions, including their availability to execute your furniture transport. Once you've agreed on dates and are satisfied with their profile & feedback score, click "accept estimate" to book your chosen shipping provider.


Ready Your Furniture for Shipping


After booking your furniture pickup & delivery service, the shipper will contact you to provide an estimated arrival time at the pickup point. To ensure a smooth process, we suggest the following steps:


  • Confirm Packaging/Protection: Check with your shipping provider if they will supply blankets, bubble wrap, or similar materials to safeguard your furniture during transit. If not, take the necessary precautions to package & protect the furniture yourself before pickup.

  • Verify Insurance: Your furniture transporter will have goods in transit insurance to cover any unlikely loss or damage during shipping. It's also advisable to review your home insurance policy, as many policies include coverage for furniture in transit.

  • Proof: We strongly recommend taking photos of your furniture prior to pickup. This documentation can be invaluable in proving any damage incurred during the transport process.

Unlike larger firms like Royal Mail & Yodel, Shiply's furniture delivery services are typically provided by smaller, family-owned businesses that offer greater flexibility. They can usually provide a narrow time window for your presence & give you a courtesy call when they are about to arrive.


The furniture shipping firms on Shiply have a wide range of specializations & can handle virtually anything. With over 100,000 shipping providers on the platform, they possess a diverse fleet of vehicles, from small vans to HGVs & flatbed trucks. No matter what you need to move, you'll find a suitable provider on Shiply.


Every shipping provider on Shiply is required to have adequate goods in transit insurance for the furniture removals they undertake. If you have a particularly valuable item, it's worth double-checking with your chosen provider directly in case they need to purchase additional insurance on your behalf.


Verify Furniture Condition & Provide Feedback


Upon completion of your delivery, we advise inspecting the condition of your furniture before signing any documents. In the rare event that there are signs of new damage, address the issue with your shipping firm immediately.


Shiply thrives on the strength of its community, who provide feedback after each delivery. Whether your experience was positive or there was room for improvement, please take a moment to leave feedback for your shipping provider on Shiply.

Will My Goods Be Tied Up Securely?

Can Items Be Taken Upstairs?

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.
