FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Preloved Teams With AnyVan To Improve Shopping Experience For Members
Preloved.co.uk is the second largest classified ad site in the UK, with over 650,000 live adverts in over 500 categories at any time. As well as second hand goods that can be sent by standard post, you can also find many larger items for sale including used cars, sailing boats, furniture and more. Due to the added expense of delivery, it is not uncommon for buyers to be put off by an item for sale due to the distance between them and the selling address, or the sheer size of the item itself - Preloved wants to reverse this.
The leading UK marketplace site is pleased to announce their partnership with leading delivery comparison site, AnyVan.com. Together they have released a brand new "Book Now" function which will further enhance the shopping experience on Preloved, for both buyers and sellers. The automated feature will help buyers gauge an overall price of an item with an added estimated cost of delivery based on an item's dimensions and location.
Not only that, buyers will also be presented with the best price available, saving up to 75% in delivery costs. With this additional delivery cost saving for the buyer, sellers will receive more interest in their goods as a result.
AnyVan is a delivery auction site where over 45,000 delivery companies can place bids for jobs placed by consumers. AnyVan have recently launched their own "Book Now" function on site to allow users to arrange a delivery, without waiting for a quote - it is this valuable time saving function that is now featured on Preloved.
As soon as a buyer has agreed a sale with a seller, the buying Preloved member will be able to obtain an instant quote and arrange delivery in minutes, streamlining the shopping experience. Only companies with over 98% feedback can complete AnyVan "Book Now" requests, so Preloved members will be able to rely on the best delivery services possible.
Preloved are committed to providing their buyers and sellers with the best online second hand buying experience possible, and continued relationships with reliable partners such as AnyVan is an important element to becoming one of the most trusted classified websites in the UK.
