Have used Shiply a few times now, and have usually received three or four quotes from couriers. All have been courteous and efficient and picked up and delivered when they said they would. Not sure how the prices compare with going direct to a courier company, but since each courier is effectively bidding for your business they presumably need to be reasonably competitive. All my deliveries have been of ebay items and you can import the ebay item number straight into the shiply website which saves typing lots of details about the item. I have had more success in getting quotes for auctions I have won than for things I am considering bidding for mind you. All in all I would recommend Shiply.
