Cutting the cost of delivery for big items on eBay
Published Wed, Apr 25, 2012 Updated Tue, Feb 16, 2021
More and more of us are turning to eBay to purchase a lot of large items such as furniture, baby cribs, children’s playground equipment, electrical goods, even motorbikes and cars. However, the problem of bidding on large items is that they are often only available if you go and pick them up yourself. This makes some desirable 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 could search for courier companies or road haulers, but the price that is likely to be offered is in some cases worth more than the item you have purchased! However, by using websites like uShip, you can benefit from a unique online shipping marketplace; connecting people with customer-reviewed courier services that can move large and/or abnormally sized items, meaning those hard items to reach are now easily attainable.
Transporters place competing bids to win a customer’s business, which drives down delivery costs and makes the shipping process more affordable and efficient.
Using online classified sites with uShip means you will be able to find a transporter who is able to ship any item to your door at the fraction of the price larger couriers will charge. If you need something transported, then making uShip your first port of call will in most cases save you a lot of money!
