Selecting the Appropriate Furniture Transporter


We suggest allowing up to 24 hours to obtain the most favorable furniture shipping estimates, although it's not unusual to receive a great price within minutes. Most of our transport providers offer nationwide furniture delivery, but we also have companies that operate internationally.


In addition to competitive prices, Shiply employs a feedback system akin to eBay. Customers leave positive, negative, or neutral feedback after each transaction, motivating transport providers to deliver high-quality service. This emphasis on affordability & excellence is why millions of people trust Shiply, earning us a 9.0/10 rating on Trustpilot.


When evaluating furniture courier quotes, pay attention to their feedback score & remarks from previous customers. Don't hesitate to inquire about their availability & services. Once you've found the right provider, click "accept quote" to reserve your furniture shipment.


Readying Your Furniture for Transport


Before your chosen courier arrives for pickup, there are a few steps you can take to ensure a seamless delivery process:


  • Confirm Packaging/Protection: Check if your transport provider will supply blankets, bubble wrap, or similar materials to safeguard your furniture during transit. If not, package & protect the items yourself before collection.

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

  • Documentation: Take photos of your furniture before collection. This evidence can be invaluable in proving damage incurred during transit.

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


With over 100,000 transport providers on Shiply, we have a vast range of vehicle types available, from small vans to HGVs & flatbed trucks. No matter what you're moving, you'll find someone on Shiply who can handle it.


Guaranteeing a Successful Delivery


Upon delivery, carefully examine your furniture before signing anything. In the unlikely event of new damage, raise the issue with your delivery company immediately.


Remember, Shiply thrives because of our community. Whether your experience was positive or there's room for improvement, please leave feedback for your transport provider on our platform.


Select Shiply for your furniture delivery needs in Ashton-under-Lyne & enjoy budget-friendly, dependable service from our network of trusted couriers.

When Will I Receive A Quote?

You will typically start to receive quotes within 30 minutes. If you are worried about the lack of quotes, try adding some more detail to your listing as transport providers may be unsure of dimensions or weight and feel unable to provide an accurate quote. If your delivery is urgent, you can try our 'featured delivery' feature which moves your listing to the top of the search page for couriers.

How Many Quotes Will I Receive?

Whilst there is no guarantee of quotes, 98% of our listings receive at least 3 quotes, so you are likely to find someone who can undertake the delivery of your items.

Does Shiply Provide Packing Materials?

If your item requires packing materials or extra care then you should make sure this is highlighted in your listing and discussed with any transport provider whose quote you are considering. 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?

The majority of transport providers on Shiply are only insured for the transportation of goods, however, some are also able to take people. If you need to travel with your goods, make sure to mention this in your listing and highlight this to any courier who quotes on your listing.

What If I Need To Cancel My Booking?

If you have accepted a quote and paid the deposit but wish to cancel the delivery, then you should first inform your chosen transport provider that you no longer require the delivery. You should then contact us at to have your deposit refunded.

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.

Will I Have Help Moving My Furniture?

Transport providers on Shiply are able to help with the moving of furniture out of or into a new home, but you should make sure they are informed of this requirement as they may need to plan for this.
