London, 21st June 2019 – Shiply ( has seen a 25% increase in people listing house removal requests on the website compared with the same period last year.

Although Brexit woes have clearly stalled the housing market in the UK, this growth on Shiply may well be another indicator of Britons looking to save money in uncertain times.

Shiply, now used by several million customers since 2008 enables users to list their house move request on the site and receive multiple quotes from removal companies.

Prices are typically up to 75% off standard rates and it is pretty normal to book a removal company for a few hundred pounds rather than a few thousand via traditional means.

After every house move is complete, users leave feedback on their transport provider. These customer reviews are incredibly helpful for new prospective customers when making their decision on who to trust.
Moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do in life and so having a transparent platform where you can easily view previous customer experiences is a great benefit.

Shiply’s Managing Director, Gavin Alexander, said: “We are pleased to see more and more people both here in the UK and overseas using Shiply to move home. Traditionally, booking a removal company is a time consuming and expensive exercise. With Shiply, the process is straightforward and economical. We look forward to helping thousands more people move home in the future with Shiply”.

Shiply, founded in 2008 is an online transport marketplace which matches people needing to move goods with transport companies going there anyway. Over 25% of lorries and vans run empty of cargo and 50% run only part-full. By utilising the Shiply platform and making use of this spare capacity, Shiply dramatically cuts down on wasteful CO2 emissions whilst also increasing the profitability of transport companies and offering up to 75% off standard rates for consumers/SME’s.
