Delivery Made Easy With Shiply

It’s an age old problem. You see a piece of furniture that you love on eBay. It will be perfect for your home, and the price is just right too. But then you look at the listing and see the words that strike dread into your heart “collection only.” You have no way of collecting the item, no access to a van and truck that would help you, and so the item slips from your hands.

Fortunately, this does not have to be the case. With the rise of the selling of furniture on eBay, on Facebook selling pages, and through auction sites and house clearance sites, there is a real need for access to delivery services that can transport these bigger items. Shiply is currently answering these needs by offering a service which helps you to find a good courier in your local area to enable you to get that treasure.

Shiply is very easy to use. It labels itself as the ‘smarter way to move bulky or heavy items’ and it does this by putting you in touch with a range of delivery services. It currently has 102,334 rated transport providers and you can request a free quote from any one of them by using the Shiply simple form. Once you have made your requests you will get quotes from the companies, and you can then compare these to find the most suitable and competitive price. You can also read reviews from previous customers which may help you to make your decision.

Once you have found your delivery/courier company, your hard work is over. You can literally just sit back and wait for your item to be delivered. The companies have been rated and have also been through a range of rigorous checks and tests so you, and your goods, are in safe hands.

It is no longer the case that if you can’t have an item delivered by the seller or supplier then you can’t buy it. The service Shiply offers makes it easy to buy anything you want from anywhere you want, and that means the bargains will no longer be the one that got away.


‘Parcel for Me’ changing online shopping

If you were asked what is the one thing that puts you off online shopping, what would you say? For me, it is very simple, it has to be the current delivery services offered by online stores and companies.

I will give you a clear example that has happened just this morning. I have had some boots delivered on a next door delivery service. Unfortunately, despite the fact that I will be in for the majority of the day, they have turned up just before 9am – the one period of the day I’m not in due to the school run. The boots are now sitting in a neighbour’s house, a neighbour I don’t actually know too well and hardly ever seems to be. So now my much wanted boots are almost in a kind of quarantine, and this might just remain the case for a few days, until I can track down my ever elusive neighbour. Frustrating isn’t it?

Parcel for Me may well be the answer to this sort of problem. An App which allows you to store all your delivery preferences, from place, time and day, Parcel for Me wants you to get your parcel first time, every time. By connecting the retailers, carriers and consumers the delivery experience becomes more personalised and therefore improved for everyone.

Parcel for Me would certainly help me avoid parcels during the school run, and struggling to get things I have tried to get delivered quickly. The idea is simple and yet so effective and useful. It may well just revolutionise our online shopping experience.
