Shiply is the UK’s largest online transport marketplace, matching consumers moving goods with delivery companies making similar journeys.
Users of the site can list items to move and get competitive quotes from the site’s network of transport providers. By making user’s listings available to its 45,000 feedback rated drivers, Shiply helps its users save up to 75% on transportation costs.
Since 2008 Shiply has given users the means to arrange the transport of all manner of goods and vehicles, services range from simple delivery jobs to specialist car transporters.
Shiply does not only arrange deliveries and pickups, it has also helped tens of thousands of customers find cheaper house and home removal companies to lower the cost of relocating.
Shiply has also expanded internationally and now offers its services in Germany, France, Italy and Spain and has made significant gains in these markets. Through expansion across Europe Shiply now provides a valuable domestic service in these countries. Its European expansion has also aided customers needing to arrange expensive international transport of goods, the site routinely helps users find drivers to send furniture and other goods thousands of miles across the EU.
