How Shiply works?

Shiply offers over 100,000 rated transport providers to choose from. Start by:

  1. Requesting a quote by using the simple form to list your delivery request
  2. Review your quote, compare prices and customer feedback; this will ensure that you get the best selection that works for you.
  3. Now is the time when your delivery is being carried out

Factors to Consider when selecting delivery service

  • Find out if the quote is all inclusive (delivery, taxes etc.)
  • Does it include VAT charges?
  • Will your item be insured? Is the company insured? What is the value of the insurance?
  • Will the driver collect only from curbside or will they go the extra mile to the third floor? If necessary…
  • Should the item be packaged for pick up? Or will the carrier transport an unpackaged good?
  • Do they provide access to tracking updates?

Often items listed on eBay are for local collection only – sellers seldom want to sort out delivery so they leave it up to the buyer. By using Shiply you get to arrange your own delivery and find an affordable courier.

Shiply also allows you to save money on courier service and it removes the hassle of having to phone around for quotes. Everything is in one place; a selection of courier service with affordable prices.

    I haven’t heard of this company before, this sounds like such a great idea though! Also sounds like it’s so easy to sort out too. I’ll have to remember this in the future!
