eBay CouriersThere are a large number of couriers on eBay who advertise their services under the local services category. This is great as you can often find a courier who is eBay friendly and used to working with eBay buyers and sellers. What's more you can limit your search to return those who are most local to you.
However, you will still be charged full flat-rate. Now there is a way to get cheap courier quotes for eBay items - Shiply. If the item is particularly large and the seller has listed the eBay item as local collect only, you will normally have to arrange a courier yourself to pick up and deliver the goods.
Shiplyis a new site that makes use of the 25% of empty lorries on Britain's roads. You can match yourself up with thousands of couriers already making similar trips.
