Shiply was a good service to me, unfortunately the delivery team I choose was a bit on the slow side, would have liked to have been informed better as to when the delivery day was.
Also not very quick to respond to my queiries.
I cancelled the acceptance made of the quote for shipping just hours after paying a deposit which Shiply are very quick to take. Despite asking for a refund, as I had made alternative arrangements for the shipment, I received no reply and no refund. Website very difficult to use. The number of quotes for shipping was positively impressive, but in view of this episode I would hesitate to either recommend or use them again.
Excellent way to find a shipper, lots of responses. The person I chose was pleasant and shipped efficiently and at an affordable price. I was reassured that no third party was involved - the person who collected was the person who delivered, important for me. Only point of difficulty was that I didn't understand that the amount Shiply deducted was the payment to Shiply, however I got my shipping problem solved and I was happy with the service.
I'd never considered using a courier before as I'd assumed that they would be ultra expensive . The option came up on an item that I viewing on ebay which meant that I could buy the item & have it delivered at a reasonable cost . I now realise that I can buy anything from anyone and use the delivery option if I need to .
