"Shiply Fees"

You will have to pay a service fee

Shiply doesnt want the customers to know that they charge the Transport provider though. they tell them they have passed the deposit to the transporter. LIE!!!!!!!!!!!

This is pasted directly from shiply emails to the transport provider

Hi ??? (Censored),

Congratulations your bid on delivery listing (Censored) has been accepted by (Censored)

Censored has already paid a deposit of £7.20, this amount has been passed to you in credit and been used to offset your Shiply success fee. This leaves an outstanding balance of £29.80 which you should collect directly from

So they play on words. they keep both fees.
But will they give the deposit back if the jobs fall through. hahaha whats the Blood out of a stone saying!!!! Good luck...

Becareful is my advice. If you do want to use Shiply go in with your eyes open. NEVER pay upfront Always copy their id. take aphoto of the vehicle. Check the tax disc matches the reg plates in case they have nicked them of another van. Remember most of these guys are man in a van. Many are from Eastern Europe. Lot of Thomas's. And what do you if they rob your things or break them??????? Whistle for it. Thats what Shiply will tell you anyway. I hope this has been informative.

PS. theres some very good providers on there as well but if it goes wrong dont look to Shiply to resolve it.
