“Good Concept”

Written on: 11/02/2014 by izzwoz (2 reviews written)

I've have had 3 good experiences with Anyvan.
1 set of heavy metal Linn speakers and 2 sets of very heavy PMC speaker stands bought from eBay that were unpackaged and the sellers offered local pickup only.

I put the add up and rather expensive quotes from furniture removal companies came in which I thought were unreasonable. A few days later the quotes dropped in price.
2 out of 3 occasions I got quotes similar price to a parcel service and the driver wrapped the items in blankets to protect them. The 3rd occasion was a little more expensive but still cheaper and far more convenient than driving 200 miles return.

It seems like a good opportunity for drivers to make a living out of multiple stops so bear this in mind when drivers try it on with the quotes. Also Anyvan take about £6 off them.

I am not sure about what happens in a situation if something goes wrong.

I am glad you had a good experience and I should imagine the vast majority of AnyVan drivers are decent, honest and trustworthy types. In fact AnyVan said they had never encountered an issue like ours before. The issue is they do jack when something goes wrong.

That is really disappointing that Anyvan did not take any responsibility. Reminds me of the early day's of Paypal for non eBay sales. Got tricked myself once and they did nothing.
Perhaps a court case is the way forward.
