Getting items delivered and as an income, covering or reducing cost
Stuff2send is a website, that allows people to
match with other people. In this case people who want items delivered, with
people already making a journey in the same direction. Its also interesting to
carriers who have a van half empty, or wanting to do something on the return
Every day you , I and millions of other
drivers across the UK have spare space, and could help others get items they want
delivered. With my interest being photography, I want to travel around and can
often select for a hot list of places I would like to visit, but now I could get
at least my costs covered if I look up who wants what taken and dropped off along
For some of those now out or a job, or others
who wish they were, the early retired, small businesses looking for an extra
income stream, or something else when they are still starting up, this also
offers the scope to start a small carrier or delivery service, whether
specialising in specific items, routes, something that can be done when you
want, to fit your time, interest or even the weather and times of day you want
There are therefore two sides to this:-
- Anyone can join and get an extra income
out of journeys they are already making, or of course do it the other way,
look for a profitable journey and use this to cover their cost to go
somewhere else nearby.
- Anyone an send items, and both save
money, and get a better service. Difficult to wrap items don't have to be
packed, not limited to sizes, weights or anything, you can send yourself,
you can buy eBay collect only items and get someone to pick them up.
So how does it work:-
- You join, those just sending for FREE.
Those wanting to find items to deliver for a fee have 3 choices, that cost
£11, £15 or £30 a year, depending on the range of services being used.
You can join both sides.
- When you want something delivered, you
enter the information and if its an eBay sale/purchase this is automated,
with information taken from the item number, and your item then goes on
file. You can put a note including the maximum you want to pay.
- Those available to deliver within their
weight capacity, can see what wants to be delivered within a distance they
select either side of their start and finish, its very flexible.
They then can make an offer online, or if they are a higher rate member
(£15 or £30 subscriptions) they can phone with their offer if the person
has put in a phone number. Those with the highest subscription rate get alerts
when items come up and more, mainly meant for carriers and professional
- The sender can check offers in and when
they like one - book it.
- The system produces documentation and it
all then takes place.
You give feedback, so everyone knows how good
each member is.
