Furniture & General Items Delivery Quotes
We have thousands of furniture couriers here on Courier Quotes who compete against each other to win your furniture delivery job.
Courier Quotes achieves furniture delivery rates usually up to 50% off standard prices because the site is used as a way for couriers to find work along their existing routes.
Say for example a courier is already taking several items from Glasgow to Manchester in their van, but after completing those deliveries they have to drive all all the way back to Glasgow again empty.
In these scenarios, the courier is willing to offer heavily discounted prices to reduce this waste. So, whether you are moving a single item of furniture in the UK or multiple items to Europe or further afield, Courier Quote can assist.
You just fill out one short form describing what you need to move and wait for the quotes to be emailed to you.
If you have any photos of the furniture, that can be really helpful to send to the removal companies. Requests with photos tend to get 18% cheaper quotes.
Once you have filled out the form and submitted your delivery request, you can just sit back, relax and let Courier Quotes take care of the rest for you.
Certainly beats phoning around one company after the next only to get expensive quotes and no idea of quality. Furniture delivery companies will compete and quote on your delivery job in a reverse auction format, which helps drive down the price for you.
Prepare Your Furniture for Transport
Now that you have booked your furniture collection and delivery service, the transporter will give you a courtesy call to let you know when they expect to be at the collection point.
Ahead of this, we recommend you do the following.
Verify Packaging/Protection: Check with your transport provider if they will be supplying blankets, bubble wrap or similar to protect your furniture during transit. If they are not, we would advise you package and protect the furniture as best you can yourself ahead of collection.
Check Insurance: Your furniture courier will have goods in transit insurance in the unlikely case your furniture is lost or damaged in transit. We also recommend you check your home insurance policy, as many of these policies do cover furniture when in transit.
Evidence: We highly recommend you take photos of your furniture before collection. This documentation can be very helpful in proving damage was incurred during the furniture shipping process.
It is not necessary for you to be in all day for collection or delivery of your item. Unlike the cowboys of Royal Mail and Yodel etc, Courier Quotes furniture delivery services tend to be undertaken by smaller family firms who are more agile in this department. They will normally be able to give you a short time window for when you’d need to be in and give you a courtesy call when they are about to arrive.
The furniture delivery companies on Courier Quotes range in specialisation enormously. There really is nothing they cannot handle. Because there are more than 50,000 transport providers on Courier Quotes, they have a huge range of vehicle types, from smaller vans right up to HGV’s and flatbed trucks. So, no matter what you’re moving, you’ll find someone to move your items on Courier Quotes.
It is a requirement of every transport provider on Courier Quotes to have adequate goods in transit insurance for the furniture removals they carry out. If you have a particularly valuable item, it is worth double checking with your chosen transport provider directly in case they need to purchase supplemental insurance on your behalf.
