uship in-home delivery: Resetting the Bar

Uniquely designed for online furniture sellers and dealers

uShip In-Home Delivery was built specifically for online sellers and dealers of furniture and other oversized items purchased online. It is a distinct and separate operation from uShip’s open shipping marketplace that has helped consumers ship large items since 2004.
 
On uShip In-Home Delivery, online sellers can automate their furniture shipping by adding instant shipping rates at checkout. Unlike the open uShip consumer marketplace, they get access to curated carrier networks for room-of-choice delivery, as well as managed services from experienced logistics professionals.

SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE AT CHECKOUT

uShip’s shipping intelligence algorithm uses 15 years of historical data to recommend a delivery rate that increases sales and reduces abandonment rates. Talk to us about shipping price strategies to maximize your conversion rates.

Curated Carrier Networks

In-Home Delivery furniture shipments are available exclusively to curated carriers who meet partner’s criteria and agree to delivery requirements. While all transporters across uShip are feedback-rated, only the best of the best have access to book In-Home Delivery shipments.
 
Unlike traditional carriers who handle a single shipment 6-8 times before delivery, carriers on uShip handle items twice — at pickup and then at delivery — something we call first-to-final mile delivery. Minimal handling reduces claims, transit times, and sellers’ costs.
