Discovering Affordable Removal Services with Shiply


Shiply makes it simple to locate budget-friendly removal companies that cater to your specific requirements and level of service. Just create a listing on the Shiply platform, detailing your move, and let the offers come to you, potentially reducing costs by up to 75%. Whether you need a comprehensive service with all the extras or just some van space for items that won't fit in your vehicle, Shiply has you covered.


Every house removal is unique, so having multiple quotes to compare allows you to find the service that best suits your needs. With thousands of registered companies, you'll have greater flexibility in choosing the assistance you require on moving day and more control over the price. When listing your house or flat move on Shiply, provide as much detail as possible so that companies can offer accurate quotes tailored to your needs. Once you've received several estimates, you can communicate with the removal firms using the messaging system to clarify any further details before making your final choice and accepting a quote.


Over 100,000 individuals have found a removal company through Shiply, making it a popular option for those seeking reliable and cost-effective removals in Oxfordshire.


Advantages of Utilizing Shiply for Your House Move


One of the most significant advantages of using Shiply for your house move is the thousands of registered removal companies ready to provide you with a quote. This means you have more options when it comes to types of companies, services, and prices. Additionally, using Shiply can save you a considerable amount of time. With Shiply, you only need to create one listing, allowing removal companies to come to you instead of having to contact each company individually.


Shiply's online form is straightforward and user-friendly. You just need to answer a few questions about the specifics of your personal house move, such as whether you live in a house or flat, the number of rooms, and the addresses of both the old and new home. Your listing will be live in no time.


Using Shiply for your house move is also more environmentally friendly. Our registered moving companies schedule their jobs with Shiply around their existing work in a similar area to you or use spare space in what would otherwise be an empty or partially-filled vehicle. This means your house move will often have a smaller negative impact on the environment.


Perhaps most importantly, using Shiply can lead to substantial cost savings. As your belongings will be utilizing otherwise wasted space in vehicles, our removal companies can offer lower prices for the same high standards of service that you would expect from approaching house removal companies individually elsewhere. Shiply users typically save up to 75% compared to standard rates, so you won't be paying an unnecessary premium.


Types of Removal Services Available on Shiply


Shiply offers a variety of removal services to accommodate different needs and budgets. A full moving service will assist you with all aspects of the move, including packing, heavy lifting at both ends, and unpacking in your new home. This type of service is typically more expensive due to the amount of work involved but can be a good choice for busy households with minimal time for packing and those who want to avoid the stress of the move.


A part-service offers some of the same features as a full service but not all. Typically, a part-service will include loading and unloading at both ends but will not include helping with any packing. This type of service would be best for those who are available on the day to be involved in the move but perhaps need an extra pair of hands or help with particular tasks at either side of the process, such as assembling furniture.


A self-service or self-packing move is the most basic and cost-effective of the removal types. Self-service can be either just the hiring of a van for you to drive yourself or hiring a driver with a vehicle to transport your possessions from the old house to the new one. If you've already got plenty of hands ready to help on moving day and do not need a team to help with packing and assembling, a self-service move is probably all you'll need.


When choosing between quotes from removal companies on Shiply, ensure you understand the service that each quote includes so you know exactly what to expect and how to prepare for moving day. Before accepting a quote, take a look at the Shiply profile of each company to check their insurances, accreditations, and feedback from other Shiply users. Once you've decided which company to go for, accept your chosen quote and let them know of any changes that may affect them in the lead-up to your moving date.


Preparing for Your House Move


There are many things you can do to prepare for moving day, which will help everything run more smoothly and minimize stress. Some tips include:


  • Informing people about your move, including loved ones, energy providers, your bank, and Royal Mail

  • Decluttering and getting rid of things you don't want to keep, especially if your new home has less storage space

  • Asking supermarkets for leftover cardboard boxes to save money on packing materials

  • Packing your most used items last and using protective packaging for fragile items

  • Labeling everything clearly, including which room each box is for

  • Scheduling a weekday move if possible to avoid traffic and have more removal companies to choose from

  • Recruiting helpers to ease the load on moving day

  • Keeping in contact with your chosen removal company and letting them know of any changes that may affect them

  • Arranging cleaning in the old house, either by doing it yourself or hiring a professional cleaning company

  • Packing a moving day bag with essentials for the first few days in your new home

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?

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.

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 .

Will The Movers Help With Unpacking?

Transport providers on Shiply are able to help with your house move on both ends (packing and unpacking), but you should make sure they are informed of this requirement as they may need to plan for this.

How Many Movers Will Show Up?

This depends on the transport provider. If you require more than one mover, make sure to highlight this in your listing as it may change the quotes you receive.
