I am always short of time. Working, blogging, being mum and now we have a wedding to organise in less than 5 months! I’m not complaining though I love it, but every now and then a helping hand is always appreciated. Which is where Shiply comes in.
Not only do I have very little time to organise our wedding, but we are also doing it on a budget. So saving time AND money is very important. As a result we are buying a lot from Pre-loved sites or eBay including the all important wedding dress!
The main problem with that though, is due to the sheer size of wedding dresses they are not easy items to post. So you then become restricted by geography, or face paying extortionate courier fees which would negate any savings made by buying on line in the first place.
This is where Shiply is a complete godsend. Shiply allows you to get multiple quotes for delivering your desired item without spending ages searching for estimates on line or ringing around. So it is completely hassle free. You can get quotes for transporting furniture, bulky items, cars, pet transport and of course wedding dresses!
You complete one very simple form with the collection and delivery postcode, a brief description and of the item and your email address. If it’s an eBay item you can enter the listing number and it does most of it for you. Then over 100,000 transport providers and delivery firms compete for your job.
As some of delivery companies are already making similar journeys, the website claims you can save up to 75% off standard rates, saving me time and money. Win, win!
I found a second hand wedding dress I liked, but it was over 146 miles away. Initially I had overlooked it due to the shipping cost and distance. Since discovering Shiply this dress and many others have now become contenders.
It took me literally a minute to fill out the form, and quotes for delivering the dress to me started dropping into my inbox after about 30 minutes.
You can then log into Shiply and compare all your quotes in one place. The feedback system means that each delivery company is rated by previous customers, so you can make an informed choice, and even ask questions before committing.
Now that I have discovered Shiply I suspect we will be using it a lot, especially in the run up to our wedding. What do you think? Have you used Shiply before? I’d love to hear what you thought
