Do you require a good, reliable man with van type to deliver on an item that you have either bought or are thinking of buying on ebay? Possibly the item is collection only and you need to arrange your own delivery / collection? 

Here is our best advice -  

Arranging your own delivery or collection represents an opportunity for you. You can save both a lot time and money by following these steps. To get the best possible delivery; 

Look at feedback on ebay. Consider that the more positive feedback that a person has, it means that they have received good comments about a delivery they have sorted in the past. Reputation is important. You don't just want someone who just 'throws an item' onto the back of a scruffy old vehicle. 

🔸 Will you item be covered over and looked after so it arrives in the same condition that it left you? 

🔸 Is the man with van fully insured for loss, or damage to your item? Are they insured? 

🔸 Are they prepared to lift the item into place at your end, or do they just 'dump' at your door? 

🔸 Are they contactable out of hours to speak with you through ebay's message system?

🔸 Know all fees, inc. VAT before committing. 

Many items on ebay are 'own collection only' as people do not want to spend time sorting out the delivery. You can save a lot of money by arranging the delivery with your own courier.
