A growing number of us are turning to eBay and to a lesser extent Craigslist to purchase a lot of large items i.e. furniture, baby cribs, children’s playground equipment, electrical goods – even motorbikes and cars. We do this because we can easily find exactly what we are looking for and in the process save a lot of money. However, the problem of purchasing these large items is that they are often only available if you go and pick them up yourself. This makes some desired items impossible to buy, either because they are too far away or because they won’t fit into the family car.
In situations like this you can search for a courier service or freight haulers, but the price that is offered is in some cases worth more than the item you want to purchase! However, by using websites like uShip to obtain quotes from a wide variety of transporters, you can benefit from a unique online shipping marketplace; linking people with customer-reviewed transport companies that can move hard-to-ship items, meaning those hard to reach items are now obtainable.
Transporters place competing bids to win a customer’s business, which drives down delivery costs and makes the shipping process more affordable and efficient.
With the help of transport marketplaces you will be able to find a transporter who is able to ship any item to your front door at the fraction of the cost of the larger players in the market. If you need something shipped, and no one else can help maybe you should try them.
