Delivering Furniture – New And Improved!


So you finally offloaded that table and chairs, sofa, loveseat or chair but you’re faced with having to get it from your place to its new home – sometimes miles away! If taking it yourself isn’t an option, you may begin to panic and start wondering how you can get bigger items like these from point A to point B and beyond without breaking the bank. Here are a couple of suggestions for those of you who need to get furniture delivered cheaply.

Shipping Companies

This is probably the most obvious option when it comes to getting furniture from A to B and beyond, but how much money are you willing to spend to relocate that sofar or table? With so many shipping companies to choose from today it can be difficult picking the perfect one for your budget. What should you consider? How does pricing work? Do they deliver locally or further afield? These are all questions that you should keep in mind when hunting for the right company to take on your deliveries. Sites like Shiply are perfect in this regard as they act as a price and service comparison website for small delivery companies in your area. This works well as it allows you to compare quotes and service levels as well as reviews all in one place. Simples!

Pickup Only

While not for everyone in every situation, selling items with pickup only can be a great way to save on shipping costs and keep more of the profits from your sale for you. Pickup only is often a great way to get rid of a table, chairs, sofa and the like quickly and to a new home locally. It’s often found in your local Facebook buy/sell and swap/trade groups so people don’t have to spend their time or money hiring someone to deliver large items, which can get costly. If you aren’t fussed on where the item goes, pickup only can be a great option for you, but depending where you live sometimes this isn’t an option if you’re in a rural region, so consider your options carefully. This generally works better in towns and cities.

Friendly Helping Hand

Finally, we all have that one friend who seems to be up for some random adventure all the time and sometimes they may even be willing to help you deliver an item to someone if they have the right kind of vehicle. This is a great option if the item is going locally or you may even be able to combine it with a girls or boys weekend to a new city if you choose to take it to its final destination yourself with a friend. What better way to make shipping work for you, right?

So there you have a couple of great suggestions on ways to save on shipping costs or deliver furniture cheaply and under budget. From using comparison sites like Shiply to delivering it yourself or specifying it’s pickup only, there are a plethora of options for deliveries of furniture nowadays.
