Shpock offers sellers free contactless delivery to “help our community stay safe at home”

Shpock has launched a new partnership with Parcel2Go offering free deliveries on second hand good so people can buy and sell their unwanted items during quarantine.

The classified ads marketplace said it will cover the additional charges for contact-free door-to-door delivery allowing sellers stuck at home can continue to sell on the platform for free.

When an item is sold, sellers must now arrange a collection time with a delivery driver and leave the parcel outside their door for them to collect.

Delivery drivers from either Parcelforce or Hermes will then deliver the goods contact-free to the buyer.

“The newly launched contact-free door-to-door delivery helps our community stay safe at home, while continuing to give second-hand items a new lease on life,” Shpock’s chief executive Esteve Jané said.

“To help make this possible, Shpock is covering most of the extra costs of this delivery service during these extraordinary times.”

    Your TV advertising is most misleading…giving the impression that delivery is FREE! It clearly isn’t…since you are only paying SOME of the ADDITIONAL collection/ delivery costs incurred. Please explain. Many thanks.
