Try Shiply.
https://www.shiply.com/
Beat me to it!

I used Shiply recently and was very satisfied with price and service. Enter details on their website (what's needing moved, pick up and destination postcodes) and companies put in their bids. Price I got was £135 lower than a local company had quoted me.

I booked via shiply to collect a bodyshell, from Speedy.

two guys turned up with a luton van....

even though in the quote I specifically said it wasnt a runner, they thought they could roll it in the back.


I've taken a vow of poverty ...... Annoy me by sending me money!!
