eBay Germany launches new Transport microsite – Online Transport Marketplace uShip offers solution for the pickup problem on eBay Germany.
Berlin, 4 March 2010 – From March, a new eBay Germany Microsite will help eBay buyers and sellers solve the tricky problem of delivery for those hard to transport items such as furniture and household items, cars, and motorcycles. Too often, these items are simply listed as pickup because neither buyers nor sellers know how much it will cost or how to best to arrange transport for things that are simply too bulky to go through the normal parcel services.
uShip’s eBay micro sites solves the Pick Up Only problem by enabling customers to get free quotations for delivery with just postcode details and a few quick clicks of the mouse, before they purchase their eBay items. uShip sends the details out to their many thousands of registered transport companies who then quote competitively the reverse auction platform to the customer, who is then free to select whichever quote they prefer.
The German eBay microsite is a further continuation of uShip’s expansion, building on the successful partnership with eBay motors in the US, and the existing integration with mobile.de, eBay’s German car classifieds subsidiary.
With the launch of the French localised website in January, uShip continues to make its stamp in Europe where it is truly able to offer customers an international service, whether their transport requirements are just a single item going a few miles locally, cross Europe deliveries, or containers for international shipments.
uShip helps relieve the stress and high cost of moving hard-to-transport items, such as cars, antiques household goods, boats, freight, heavy equipment, pets and more. Since it was founded in 2004, the uShip marketplace has attracted nearly £170 million in business transactions, one million customers and 200,000 service providers. uShip operates globally with localised functionality in the Germany, UK, France, Netherlands, U.S., Canada, and Australia. http://www.uship.com/de/
